Best Cosplay Ever (This Week): Dani Moonstar, Samus, Stryfe, Madoka Magica & More

bestcosplay

Although cosplay has been present for decades within the comics, anime, and sci-fi/fantasy fandoms, social media has played an integral role in the thriving communities of costuming that exist, such as Cosplay.com and the Superhero Costuming Forum. Over the years, the cosplay community has evolved into a creative outlet for many fans to establish and showcase some impressive feats of homemade disguise, craftsmanship, and sartorial superheroics at conventions.

In honor of the caped crusaders of the convention scene, ComicsAlliance has created Best Cosplay Ever (This Week), an ongoing collection of some of the most impeccable, creative, and clever costumes that we’ve discovered and assembled into a super-showcase of pure fan-devoted talent.

‘Death Note: The Musical’ Is Coming To Japan; Listen To The First Song In English

death note

Death Note, Tsugumi Ohba and Takeshi Obata’s wildly popular tale of good, evil, and perfectly mussed hair, has been adapted into an anime, three live action movies, a prose novel, and various video games. In my foolishness, I’d thought we were done. I'd thought the consumption of 2007 anime clubs everywhere was enough to sate Death Note's ravenous appetite. But I was wrong—and, believe it or not, happily so. From April 6th to the 29th, Death Note The Musical will run at Tokyo’s Nissay Theater. Further performances have been scheduled in Osaka, Nagoya, and South Korea.

Because We Love You, Here’s 17 Minutes Of Live-Action Sailor Moon Life Lessons

Sailor00

Should you ever doubt that the Internet is truly a magical place, consider this: Any time you want, you can head over to YouTube and watch a VHS rip of 17 minutes of live-action bumpers from 1995 where an actress dressed as Japan's greatest superheroine talks about the episodes, gives life lessons, and reads fan mail.

The bumpers were originally recorded for a Black Friday Sailor Moon marathon in 1995, with actress Tia Browsh in the lead role, and I love them with absolutely no trace of irony, especially the part where she refers to Luna as a "yakety-yak cat from outer space." Take some time and enjoy it, won't you?

Visit Beautiful Japan, See Giant Naked Monsters Fighting At ‘Attack On Titan: The Real’

Titan00

I only watch anime involving moon princesses and the "Legendary Silver Crystal," but I've been to enough conventions over the past couple of years to be vaguely aware of Attack On Titan, Hajime Isayama's wildly popular story about teens in half jackets fighting weird skinless giants that eat people pretty much all the time. The manga and anime have been hugely successful, to the point where there is now a theme park attraction in Osaka's Universal Studios Japan, where visitors can experience the thrill of being eaten by monsters themselves.

As revealed in a video from the debut of the attraction, you can check out a 49-foot statue of two Titans engaged in battle, as well as have your own picture taken as you're cheerfully devoured by a drooling giant. You know, fun for the whole family!

‘Sidera’ Anime Is Fluorescent Mayhem Riding A Rainbow Centaur In Pink Garters And Ankle Boots [Video]

Untitled-1

Forgive me Gloria Steinem, for I have sinned: I love sexy anime. Panty and Stocking. Kill la Kill. The Woman Called Fujiko Mine. If it has booty shorts and the slightest patina of satire, I’m not just on board—I’m conducting the train. So of course I loved Sidera, a newly released short created by French team Catfish Deluxe and Japanese studio Yapiko Animation for the movie Lou! Journal Infime.

Meet Don Dracula, Osamu Tezuka’s Kind Of Terrible Comedy About The Count And His Hemorrhoids

Don Dracula

When October rolls around, I always spend as much of the month as I can with Dracula, and it's gotten to the point where I'm actually starting to run out of stuff to watch. I mean, we're still almost a week away from Halloween, and I've seen at least a dozen movies about the Count, so I've been looking for something new to get me through these last few days. Fortunately, a kind soul on Twitter told me about Don Dracula, and I was immediately intrigued.

After all, if you're going to make a list of the most important comic book creators of all time, there aren't going to be a whole lot of names on that list ahead of Osamu Tezuka. He's called "the God of Manga" for a reason, and finding out that he not only did a bizarre all-ages Dracula comic, but that it was adapted into an anime that's available in its entirety on Hulu mean that my week was pretty much set. There's just one problem: It's actually pretty terrible.

Spanish Filmmaker Adapts Naoki Urasawa’s ‘Mighty Boy’ Into Short Film: Watch For Free

Mighty-Boy-poster-low

Friends, this is the sort of comic book movie news I enjoy writing about: Naoki Urasawa (Monster, 20th Century Boys, Pluto) can now add the honor of becoming the first manga author to have his work adapted into film in Spain. Spanish director Javier Yañez obtained the rights to one of Urasawa's early short stories, Mighty Boy, from publishers Shogakukan, gaining approval from the master himself in the process. Although the film was largely privately financed, Yañez took the initiative to crowd-funding platform IndieGogo in order to raise the final $10,000 it required, and now it's finished and available to watch in full, for free (subtitled in both English and Japanese).

I spent a bit of time trying to track down Urasawa's original story online, with no luck (it's not been translated in English, and was published as part of an anthology volume), so I'm unable to comment on how the adaptation translates, or how faithful it is, but I can tell you what the film is about and if it's any good.
