On August 8, 2021, the celebrity Tegoshi Yuya appeared on the event stage of the “World Cosplay Summit 2021”, the world’s largest cosplay festival, as a secret guest. He sang a song in the cosplay of Nagisa Kaworu (Plugsuit Ver.) from “Evangelion: 3.0+1.0 Thrice Upon a Time”, which was specially prepared for the event.

In the interview before Tegoshi appeared on stage, he talked about his joy at appearing at the “World Cosplay Summit”, his preparation of his costume for the event, and his strong will to share the charm of Japan’s proud manga, anime, and games with the world.

On this day, Tegoshi sang the theme song “One Last Kiss” from “Evangelion: 3.0+1.0 Thrice Upon a Time”, and with his gentle yet powerful voice, the audience was instantly drawn into the world of the anime.
During the talk, he talked about the fun and appeal of cosplaying and his favorite games with a lot of enthusiasm, and when the MC pointed out that he was “one of us”, he smiled.

He also gave a powerful performance of his original song “ARE U READY”, the official theme song for the online game “Knives Out”, which cheered up the participants of this year’s “World Cosplay Summit”, which had to be held at a reduced scale due to the current situation with COVID-19, as well as the cosplay fans around the world who were watching the live streaming.
