Chinese cosplayers are attracting attention at large-scale events such as the "Comic Market" and the "Tokyo Game Show". Back around 2017, some Chinese cosplayers started to be called "Kokubune", and in the last few years, the number of Chinese cosplayers participating in Japanese events has increased due to the expansion of the games from China to Japan.

The size of the presence that has been growing at events in Japan so far may have gained the notoriety they deserve. Due to the influence of the coronavirus, many dynamic exhibitions (events like anime games) have been cancelled in China today. It is also difficult for Chinese cosplayers to come to Japan.

That's why I thought we should highlight the Chinese cosplayers, so we picked up 12 cosplayers that are particularly well known in Japan, as a first project. Let's take a look at the pictures of the girls who could be photographed at the event so far, and we're looking forward to the day when we can see them again.

One of the best parts of watching anime is how many times a show can surprise you. Sometimes for good, sometimes for bad. But if the Otaku know one thing, it's that anything is possible.
