Nice Memory of InuYasha

I enjoyed myself in Chengdu cosplay convention last weekend. It is a nice cosplay party where I met some cool cosplayers dressing all kinds of fantastic cosplay costumes. The guys from Naruto, Kuroshitsuji, sailer moon, pokemon were catching my eyes there. They all look very attractive. I had some photo shoot with them. Now, I got the pictures and they all look cool. Great cosplay show, wonderful cosplayers.

Now, when I look at the cosplay pictures, I feel a little down. Facing nice pictures, I will recall all the good experience of the cosplay con, why I will feel lost? Maybe, I am very touchy. But I have to say I miss InuYasha, and I want to watch the classic anime, though there is no more new sequel since March 29th, 2010. InuYasha is over, not like Naruto or Kuroshitsuji.

It is a long time for an InuYasha fans. Sometimes, if you can’t get what you want, you only can recollect what you own. This classic Japanese manga series is written and illustrated by Rumiko Takahashi. It premiered in Weekly Shonen Sunday which is a famous manga magazine on Nov 13th, 1996, and concluded on June 18th, 2008. Because it is very popular, it was adapted as two anime television series produced by Sunrise. The whole series has a total of 167 episodes. I never missed any of the series. After a 5 years’ waiting time, the sequel was published on Oct 3th, 2009 which covers the rest of the manga series. It named The Final Act and it ended on March 29th, 2010.

That is not a long history for a Japanese anime. What I have to say, I didn’t see the whole of the manga, but I watched all of the anime TV series. So I guess all the plot of anime is as the same as the manga itself. This Japanese series’ protagonists are a time-traveling middle school girl who is a half demon, a lecherous monk, a fox demon, a demon slayer, and a nekomata.
They lived in Sengoku period and seek to find all the fragments of the jewel of four souls and to keep the jewel out of the hands of rebels, especially Naraku. I am not sure the anime’ plot is as the same of the manga’s, since I didn’t have time to read the classic manga. I am being a busy officer now.

So, anyone who have read the whole manga and watched the two anime TV series could reply me? Give me some different information about the manga.

However, I love the InuYasha anime which accompanied me for the school life. Because of the anime, I got a buddy Lee who has the same interest as me. Now, I think the InuYasha will be with me for another time, because cosplaying has been a hot hobby for me. And InuYasha certainly has become a nice choice for my cosplay costumes, though I have to wear a fake ear and a long wig. You know I have a big ear and short hair. That is a tough job for my dressing. Whatever, I like it, so I choose it.

Cosplay in Japan

The term alone is a broad overview of a much wider and more diverse culture, where these cosplayers or reiyas devote time and effort into perfecting their roles. It is not uncommon to see these individuals in public places like Tokyo’s Harajuku district for it is considered a popular meeting ground. Attention to detail from simple to elaborate wigs, make-up and costumes – many of which are hand-crafted – are the highlights of observing cosplayers as a first time visitor to the city. However, even though there are a wide range of characters, the most popular ones, and fan favorites, are maid and high-school girl uniforms.

Another popular trend amongst reiyas is the smoky-eyed look; most commonly seen with those who prefer the Lolita fashion. Although Western culture attributes the role of Lolitas to underage girls, in Japan, it is not regarded that way. Those engaged in Lolita fashion do not see themselves as cosplayers, but distinct trendsetters who take great pride in their craft, ranging from Gothic to Punk. However, the inspiration for their look comes from the Victorian era, and the ensemble is mostly composed of a dress or skirt of knee-length, a headdress, petticoat, blouse, knee-high socks and platform shoes. Lolita fashion, in Japan, was believed to have started in the 1960s, and today many high-end boutiques have devoted sections to this growing trend.

Another instance where one might see ‘costumes’ on the streets of Japan, is during the Coming-of-Age Day festivities. This is held annually on the second Monday of January, and it is a time when young people who have reached the age of 20, are officially recognized as adult members of society. Young women can be seen wearing brightly-colored furisode (a style of kimono with long sleeves) and zori sandals. Since these outfits are considered expensive, and a little difficult to wear, the women either borrow them from relatives, rent them and prefer to get prepared in local beauty salons. For the men, the traditional dark kimono with hakama is sometimes seen, although many now prefer to wear Western suits.
