Kipi Elite Cosplay Queen Gallery

kipi_cosplay_gallery_108.jpg

This gallery is of Kipi, one of the most recognized, if not the best known Japanese cosplayer to foreign audiences.

She is undoubtedly best know for her near infinite portfolio of supreme Haruhi Suzumiya cosplay, but her wonderful portrayals of Asuka Langley Sohryu (getting a separate article too) and Meer Campbell have also seen a wide audience.

She also has performed cosplay of dozens of other characters in what must be one of the most prolific cosplay careers yet seen…

code_geass_nunally_lamperouge.jpg

Bandai has begun free distribution of Pizza Hut anime Code Geass, with Gundam 00 set to follow, via YouTube, in both subbed and dubbed versions, but unfortunately it has escaped their attention that there are anime fans and potential viewers outside the US, for the time being at least.

Gundam Ethnic Cleansing

From the first episode of Gundam SEED. Probably about the most innocent motive we can ascribe is that dark colouring was avoided for aesthetic reasons.

Lantis & Sunrise Demand Removal of Anime Screen Caps

no-geass-caps.jpg

Two studios renowned for their extraordinarily draconian approach to copyright enforcement, Lantis and Sunrise, have apparently been demanding anime fan sites remove all episode caps, citing a breach of copyright. Publishing fan art online is also forbidden by Sunrise.

Even heavy hitter Yamakan has offered harsh criticism of the policy, which seems to lend substantial credibility to the missives. There is also some suspicion from the titles involved that copyright is not their only concern…

New Gundam SEED Theatrical Film Due Soon?

gundam_seed_new_movie_lacus.jpg

The Anime Newtype Channel’s blog reports Gundam SEED head screenwriter Chiaki Morosawa as suggesting there will be an official announcement (on the SEED movie) coming soon at the recent Kadokawa Shoten New Year’s party.

The Gundam SEED storyline, beginning with the 2002 original series and continued by the 2005 Gundam SEED: Destiny sequel, has been in limbo since writer Morosawa’s problems with cancer surfaced in 2008 and the unnamed theatrical film that is said to wrap up the SEED storyline has since been on hiatus.

2008 Anime Blu-ray Sales Ranking: Mecha Dominate

2008_bd_sales_ranking_macross_f_01.jpg

Sales numbers for BD anime releases in 2008 have finally become available, and are presented here. The figures reveal a strikingly good performance for anime featuring large robots.

Unlike DVD sales, BD sales numbers remain difficult to ascertain in Japan, so the sales ranking is informative as to what releases are dominating sales on the next video format of the future…

Gundam 00 2nd Season Precure Plagiarism Doubts

gundam00-precure-oppai-1.jpg

Whether by way of deliberate tribute, sheer lack of originality or otherwise, the similarities between the new Gundam 00 2nd Season OP and the OP for magical girl anime Precure (Pretty Cure) have not escaped the notice of the comparative engine that is 2ch. You can view the OPs below.

It’s not clear why such extreme (beyond coincidental we might think, though still perhaps not deliberate) similarity should exist.

In related news, the nudity of the participating characters did not escape 2ch’s attention either:

Bronze Gundam Idol-Statue Attracts Worshipers

A three meter tall bronze statute of a mobile suit from the perennially popular Mobile Suit Gundam series was erected in production studio Sunrise hometown of Kami-igusa earlier this year.

It has since shown signs of becoming a symbol of the city, with fans flocking to photograph it and even instigating plans to build more mecha statutes in order to construct a “Gundam Road”.
