In the morning, many young people are getting together and waiting for open the building in front of Art Hall in Sapporo Art Park. They have a large shopping bag or traveling bag to bring their Kosupure properties.

Just at 10 o’clock, the door was opened and waiting cos-players were inhaled into the building. Cosplayers went to the dressing rooms and Otaku or Anime funs were staying in the hall for a special movie show and stage performance by a new anime movie ‘Tentai-no-Method'(天体のメソッド). They were looking for it.

Every cos-player accepted my taking their photos with full of smile. She dressed up a anime character cosplay as Magical girl Magika. Is she cute, isn’t she.

Three girls were dressing up their favorite anime and game characters such as Kuroko-no-Basuke, Free and Toho. I’m afraid that I am so novice for anime characters that I could not report correctly, I guess.

Another cos-play girl coming, I asked her character and she said, It’s Gugure-Kokkurisan’. Maybe, she spoke Japanese and I heard just like that, but I couldn’t identified what it is. Anyway, She’s so cute!

This is Mario! I know him. WoW.

This is Gintama. Gin is silver and Tama refers to Tamashii(魂), soul or heart. So Gintama means a soul of silver. Cool!
