Thousands of people hit the streets of Nipponbashi today to show off their cosplays! The Izanau team went and picked out the best cosplayers of the year, and there were so many to choose from.
This year featured more than just Japanese Anime characters ― Harry Potter was quite popular! Check out @snoel72 for more of this amazing Harry Potter cosplay. Even Newt Scamander from Fantastic Beasts made an appearance.
My favorite anime and manga of all time, Full Metal Alchemist! I was excited when I spotted josuicp cosplaying Major Armstrong, so I just had to take a picture!
Ryuk from Deathnote was back again this year too! He had a showdown with Captain Jack Sparrow last year ―be sure to check it out. The man on the right is mimicking the character which appears before watching a movie in Japan― the character highlights the consequences of piracy.
Only one truth prevails! Detective Conan (or known as Case Closed in some parts of the world) also had a few cosplayers in character this year. On the right is Harly Quinn from Suicide Squad.
There were so many beautiful cosplay ladies this year too! Which one is your favorite?
Stay tuned for the next part of the cosplayers at Nipponbashi Street Festa 2017! There is more to come!
