Undefeated welter weight champion kickboxer and crossdressing otaku cosplayer Yuichiro Nagashima, whose impressive record now stands at 10 bouts and 10 victories, with 7 KOs, has vowed yet further triumphs after his most recent victory.

Scenes from the interview:
What are your favourite anime of this season?
I’m totally hooked on Ga-rei Zero and Kannagi.
When is your next match?
It’s due February 23rd: “FieLDS K-1 WORLD MAX 2009”.
What will your next costume be?
There are several candidates, but as yet I can’t divulge anything.
If you cosplayed one of our (group’s) characters, which would be good?
I’m totally stoked to try Index (of A Certain Magical Index); of course, even with the safety pins I could bust out of it…
Your ambition for the New Year?
I’ll be competing at K-1, so I’d like to give a perfect cosplay performance on the big stage, and get my support group outfitted too. Then I’d like to enter the ring not as just a single cosplayer, but as part of a big group; almost as if we could re-enact an anime there…
Expect the entire cast of Nanoha to turn up in the ring, then…
