The new cast for 'Sorcerous Stabber Orphen: Battle of Kimluck' will include Sugita Tomokazu, and Sakamoto Maaya. Morikubo Shotaro will perform the opening theme song.

The new cast for "Sorcerous Stabber Orphen: Battle of Kimluck" , to be premiered in Jan. 2021, has been announced, including Shimoduma Yoshiyuki, Sugita Tomokazu, Sakamoto Maaya, and Koyasu Takehito. "Sorcerous Stabber Orphen: Battle of Kimluck" is an anime based on a dark fantasy "Sorcerous Stabber Orphen" written by Akita Yoshinobu, which had over 14 million copies in circulation. It became an anime adaptation in 2019 to commemorate its 25th anniversary, following 1998 and 1999. This will be the 2nd season. The new cast to play the members of "Death Teachers", Kimluck Church's own assault unit, who are hiding in Kimluck that stands against the sorcerers, has been announced. Shimoduma Yoshiyuki will be playing Salua, a traitor to the death teachers, Sugita Tomokazu will play Quo, the most powerful assassin, Sakamoto Maaya will play Carlotta, a sly adjutant, and Koyasu Takehito will play Name, a strategist that is active behind the scenes.

"Sorcerous Stabber Orphen: Battle of Kimluck" will be premiering on Jan. 20, 2021, on TOKYO MX and AT-X. Shimoduma Yoshiyuki as Salua I worried a lot about how to play Salua, who has various faces, but thanks to the help from Morikubo-san and others, I managed to do the challenge. Battle of Kimluck has a hard development, and I really like it. Please try watching it! Sugita Tomokazu as Quo When I was chosen as a cast, I felt elated and scared at the same time for some reason. I didn't know if it was because of the pressure or the message that I became a creator from the audience. When I spoke a single word as Quo, I found it out. I will put all the feelings in the play. Please enjoy it. Sakamoto Maaya as Carlotta Carlotta apparently looks elegant, but it is hard to tell what she actually is thinking about from her facial expressions, which is her attraction. I'm also excited to watch the broadcast. Let's enjoy it together. Koyasu Takehito as Name I am really grateful to join "Sorcerous Stabber Orphen", a great masterpiece. I sincerely hope that the voice of his spirit reaches you. Please save him... (C)Akita Yoshinobu, Kusaka Yuya, TO Books / Sorcerous Stabber Orphen: Battle of Kimluck Production Committee

Comments by Toshiki Masuda The concept of this photo book is "the way I am". As I don't usually show a lot of my personal life, I'm leaving it up to the people who receive it, but I hope you'll enjoy it, even though that's who I am... However, I didn't neglect to prepare for the shoot, such as limbering up. It's been about 10 years since I published my first book in 2009, and whether you were supporting me back then or have recently come to know me, this will be a book that shows you the "real Masuda Toshiki Masuda", so if you are at all interested in me, I hope you will take a look at it.

natsume, the Chinese cosplayer with 220,000 followers on Twitter, charms in a voluptuous costume! She is Akatsuki from "Lost Decade"

Date: 2020-06-30
The Chinese cosplayer natsume-san is one of the top cosplayers who has reached 220,000 followers on Twitter by showing many sexy costumes. She actively participates in events in Japan such as Comic Market, and has always attracted a lot of attention. However, due to the current situation, she lost touch with her Japanese fans, which is regrettable. This time we had a direct interview with Natsume. She also shows us some of her latest unpublished shots for her Japanese fans. --Were you planning to come to Japan in May? natsume: That's right, I was supposed to be there in May for the Comic Market to show my new costume, but unfortunately the event was canceled... --What kind of cosplay works are popular in the Chinese cosplay world at the moment? natsume: "Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba". I've heard it's incredibly popular in Japan, but it's also very popular in China and in other countries! There's a lot of cosplay as well. --What are some of the Japanese works that you're into? natsume: There are a lot of them, but "Kaguya-sama: Love Is War" "Persona 5", and "Final Fantasy VII" are always my favorite! --In terms of cosplay, what kind of characters have you recently made? natsume: Recently, I've been working on Pecorine from "Princess Connect! Re:Dive", Enoshima Junko from "Danganronpa", Android 18 from "Dragon Ball", and Akatsuki from "Lost Decade". Most of them are already on Twitter! --This time you have published a shot of Akatsuki, can you please tell us how was working on it? natsume: Akatsuki was a very difficult costume to put on because it had a lot of detailed decorations. It took me about an hour and a half to finally get it on with the help of my friends. But the shoot went really well, it only took 30 minutes and it was fun! --What do you like about cosplay? natsume: Like for all the works I've just mentioned, when I come across works and characters that I like, I want to cosplay them. And there are also a lot of works that have become my all-time favorites because of cosplaying (laugh). --Finally, please tell us your future goals! natsume: I want to work hard to make money for doing cosplay. When the current situation will be over, I definitely want to go to Japan with a lot of my cosplay works, so I'll do my best. I look forward to seeing you at the Comic Market this winter!

【Cosplay】"FGO" Katsushika Hokusai, Mash, Koyanskaya, and more... The sweet looks of the Chinese beauty cosplayer. 【22 photos】

Many Chinese cosplayers have appeared in Japanese anime/game events and Doujinshi conventions. Their high-quality cosplays have stolen the attention of the anime and game fans. "Fate/Grand Order" Mash / Photo by Jiaozhu shadow 【Click the photo for the photo gallery】 Mayuyi tako is said to be one of the hottest cosplayers in recent years. She has been to Japan 3 times so far, and has participated in "Comiket" (95,96, and 97). With about 350,000 followers on Twitter, reservations of her photo sessions are instantly full. She is now studying abroad in the States, and will be going to University from Apr. Here is her interview, along with photos from when she was a high school student. ◆◆ ――What made you start cosplaying, and when did you start? Mayuyi tako: My friend took me to an ACG event (anime, game, doujin events in general) in my middle school years. It was impressive to see cosplayers dressed as my favorite characters. Since then, I've been cosplaying for 6 years. I'm now living in the States, so I go to China or Japan on my long term vacations in summer and winter for cosplay photo sessions. I can't afford freely flying back to China or to Japan from the States except for those occasions. "Fate/Grand Order" Katsushika Hokusai / Photo by Hanmo 【Click the photo for the photo gallery】 ――Tell us about your favorite animes and games. Mayuyi tako: I'm really into "Fate/Grand Order". Other than that, I play a lot of "Grand Blue Fantasy" and "Knives Out". My favorite anime is "JoJo's Bizarre Adventure"! ――What are the features of your cosplay? Mayuyi tako: I believe it's my smile. ――Is there anything you want the photographers to do? Mayuyi tako: I collect as much information about the character before the photo session, and explain what kind of photo I want the photographers to take. But, in my opinion, what's most important is to understand the character as a cosplayer. "Gantz: O" Yamasaki Anzu ――Are there any impressionable moments of cosplaying? Mayuyi tako: That would be when people tell me that I look like the character. It makes me feel that I'm getting closer to my ideal cosplay, and that's very satisfying. ――Which cosplay made you famous? Mayuyi tako: Maybe the cosplay of Mash from "Fate/Grand Order" in 2018. I really worked hard on my facial expressions to give her the essence of a Kohai. I have many other expressions and poses for Mash other than her smiling, so someday, I'd like to introduce them. "Fate/Grand Order" Mash ――What makes you continue cosplaying? Mayuyi tako: The expectations of everyone wanting to see more of my work is a strong motivation among the many reasons. I don't want to lose my passion towards cosplaying. Many of my friends, who started about the same time as me, have given up. I want to be the one that keeps on cosplaying no matter what happens. ――What are your future goals? Mayuyi tako: I want to dress as more characters from "Fate/Grand Order"! Also, characters from my favorite titles like, "Xenoblade2", "Azul Larne", and "JoJo's Bizarre Adventure". "Fate/Grand Order" Koyanskaya Images provided by Mayuyui tako (@Takomayuyi)

【Cosplay】A super rookie with 160 thousand followers・aqua The secret behind the overwhelming quality is...?【20 Photos】

Until now, a lot of China cosplayers have attended events in Japan, and their high-quality cosplay has become a hot topic. In the massive population China, rookies are appearing one after one, earning popularity in a short period. "Re: Zero - Starting Life in Another World" Rem (Bunny Girl Ver.) 【Click image for the photo gallery】 水淼aqua is also an anticipated super rookie that shows the best quality cosplay, although her cosplay career is less than one year and a half long. The Twitter account that started at Mar. 2019 now has approx. 160 thousand followers (by Apr.14, 2020). With a short interview, this article will deliver cosplay photos of her who have never attended events in Japan. ◆◆ ―― In which part of China are you living? 水淼aqua: I am living in Xi'an. There are lots of places to explore for delicious foods, please come visit us! ―― What is the reason behind starting a cosplay? How long has it past since? 水淼aqua: I loved characters from the anime and games, it has been one year and a half since the thought that I would like to become the character itself both in looks and mind. I mostly take part in studio photograph session and I rarely attend to events. But, I want to try my best to attend events from now. ―― Could you tell us about your favorite anime or games? 水淼aqua: For games, I usually enjoy playing "Azur Lane" and "Diablo 3". For anime, I love all genres from a mild and delicate to passionate and expressive, so I had watched a lot of animes. ―― What is the distinctive feature of expression about your cosplay? 水淼aqua:I really don't have any definite posing or facial expressions. For the cosplay, it is important to change the expressions and movements to become a character itself. Maybe, a handsome look is my appealing point?... It's a joke! (Laughing) ―― Is there anything that you expect from a photographer when taking a photo? 水淼aqua: I prefer a photographerwith a similar sense and idea of the photo that I want. This only leaves minor editing after the photograph has started. Another would be someone who allows me to get engaged with my character. This is because I lose concentration if I am instructed with too much posing. ―― Is there any memorable moments of cosplay until now? 水淼aqua: It would be the moment when I took a cosplay photoshoot of Do-S from "One-Punch Man". I accidentally had candle wax spilled over my back, so I went to a hospital straight after the photoshoot. It was horrible because it would have been a life-time scar if I arrived slightly later. (Laughing) Do-S from "One-Punch Man" 【Click image for the photo gallery】 ―― What is the cosplay that sparked your popularity among people? 水淼aqua: It is Atago from "Azur Lane" (Racing Queen Ver.). I personally feel like this was the cosplay that reached over the personal limit. I am thinking that getting known by a lot of people is a reward behind numerous efforts that I have put into. ―― Could you please tell about your future goals? 水淼aqua:I want to cosplay a lot of characters from "Azur Lane" and "Fate/Grand Order". I would like to enhance my posing or expressions to the next level, giving a vivid impression when I am taking a photo shoot. I will try my best! Also, I have visited Japan 5 times already. Yet, I have not visited a single "Comic Market" event, I really want to attend it next time. Formidable from "Azur Lane" 【Click image for the photo gallery】 Image provided by: 水淼aqua(@aqua28551264)

【Cosplay】Check out Okita Rinka, the new-gen cosplayer from Taiwan! Riamu from "The Idolmaster Cinderella Girls", Sakura from "Fate", and so on. Who is your favorite? 【37 photos】

A Taiwanese cosplayer is booming in Japan. Okita Rinka, who lives in Taipei, Taiwan, has over 30,000 followers on Twitter in Japan and also participates in Comiket and photo sessions in Japan. This is the report of the interview with the new-gen cosplayer from Taiwan along with a photo report. ―― What made you interested in cosplaying? And what are your usual cosplay activities? Okita Rinka: I always liked anime and games since I was a child. I started cosplaying when I saw my friend doing it in middle school. It's been roughly 8 years since then. I usually attend as a cosplayer in ACG event (general doujin events of anime and games) in Taiwan. ―― What are your favorite anime and manga? Okita Rinka: It's difficult to pick one anime out of so many. I like Otome games in general! ―― What are your special features of cosplaying? Okita Rinka: I'm good at sensual gestures and expressions like cute faces and emotionless faces. ―― What do you think made you so popular? Okita Rinka: I held many exhibition booths at various doujinshi conventions in Taiwan. Selling my cosplay photo collections at these events brought along more and more supporters. Also, constantly posting photos on Facebook and Instagram helped too. I'm so glad that such steps I took in the past brought me to where I am now. ―― Tell us which cosplay left a strong impression on you. Okita Rinka: That would be Shuten Douji from "Fate/Grand Order". The shooting was so exhausting. We had to climb deep in the mountains for the shooting and by the time we could leave, it was so dark we couldn't see anything. We were about to get lost in the mountains. ―― How many times have you been to Japan? Okita Rinka: 7 times in total, but the summer of 2018 is the only time I attended Comiket. ―― What keeps you cosplaying? Okita Rinka: The strongest motivation would be my love for anime and games. Also, the fans who support my cosplays always give me confidence. ―― In what style do you like to be photoed? Okita Rinka: I believe the composition and the color tone are the most important. Furthermore, sharing an image with the cameraman is the most important! ―― What do you value in your cosplay? Okita Rinka: I didn't know anything when I began cosplaying. I worked hard to become better at make-up and styling the wigs. From there, I try to get as close to the essence of the character as much as I can. That's the approach I believe I should never forget. ―― Tell us about your future goals. Okita Rinka: I want to hold an exhibition booth at Comiket and distribute my cosplay photo collections! I also want many more people to know me in Japan, interact with other cosplayers, and improve on my cosplays. Photos provided by Okita Rinka (@okitarinka01)
