View Full Version : Size 9 Group- What Anime?

07-24-2009, 06:22 PM
So, we have two groups combining forces so we can have an extra awesome cosplay group at next years Connecticon. We are all females, and to my knowledge, not one of us is against being a male. We're having some problems picking a series. I've come up with some good parameters to make a really good group.
*Not a very popular series- Overly cosplayed series like Inuyasha, Death Note, and even Kuroshitsuji just make you feel like you're not that original, especially when there are alot of really great cosplay photos online of the character you are.
*Not completly unknown- So you don't feel unloved.
*Not a uniform/suit series- Take School Days. A lot of females, but theres two versions of thier uniform. End outfit. Suits you can just buy and then throw on a wig. We have a year for this, so I was hoping we could get outfits a little more complicated.
*Preferably not a game- Not everyone in our group can play *insert-system-here* games, so unless it has a good (not the kingdom hearts manga, dear god no) manga/anime/ova adaptation, games should be out.
*9+ MAJOR characters- It's not fair to all the group members if three of them are getting all the photos and minor characters are being left out of the love.

Not EVERY one of the parameters have to be met, because that would leave us with about two series. But the more the better.
The only things we can think of are Pandora Hearts, Maybe Kyou kara Maho(How many main characters are there? I can't seem to find more than 7), Heart no Kuni no Alice (though someone is against it despite the awesome outfits), and some of them want to do Hetallia, but I saw so many Countries at Boston it's bound to become another overkill soon enough. And I don't think many people are willing to be a Senshi, before anyone suggests Sailor Moon...

Thank you ahead of time!

I like the Kyo Kara Maou one... XD

Another ideas could be Vocaloid, Phoenix Wright series (this one is a game though, but it has loads of characters and it's a really fun series to cosplay n.n), Hetalia sounds cool... just started seeing it today and I'm hooked X3.

That's all I got for now... =< sorry. ^^;;

Big groups of characters...

Shoot, I was going to say Blazblue or the Tales series since they have a nice bundle of costumeful characters. But those are games...

Actually, Tales of Symphonia is anime-adapted.

Prince of Tennis has teams and their costumes are pretty simple.

I know Final Fantasy had a not-so-good anime series produced a while ago if you want to look into that.

The digidestins from Digimon is an under-cosplayed series that could be done.

Azumanga Daioh.

Maybe a general Miyazaki-Ghibli Film group.

And I'll toss in Gijinkas as an idea too. :3

For the record, Phoenix Wright does have a Manga Series that captures the characters' personalities well.

Ranma 1/2 is an Option.

Pretear (include all the different pretear elements it add up to more 9.)

Katekyō Hitman Reborn!
Full Metal Alchemist
Full Metal Panic
Tsubasa Chronicles
I also like the Vocaloid suggestion
Avatar: The Last Airbender
One Piece
Higurashi no Naku Ni (THIS)

It's hard because you're asking for popular but not popular. You're betting off sticking with the well known series that risk you being put in the "done often enough" catergory since you're worried about not being recognized.

I second the Katekyo Hitman Reborn idea. o:

But uhm, how about Pokemon? And not like, ginjinkified pokemon, but maybe the gym leaders and the usual trio? (Ash + Brock + Misty/May/Dawn/Whoever)

Mai Otome or Mai Hime even though you'll see school uniforms when you google it, the chicks in the anime also have battle suits and they look pretty badass, there's also a BUNCH of girls in the series.

I agree with the Blazblue and the Pokemon ginjinka ideas though

D Gray-Man
Katekyo Hitman Reborn!
Bleach Espada -theres 10 of them, but you can exclude Barragan since nobody likes dressing up like old men. XD
Air Gear
Higurashi Series
Fate/Stay Night
the current 5 kages, plus the past ones we know of - Naruto
Fairy Tail [Especially because its anime is coming out this fall!]
Pandora Hearts
Kurogane no Linebarrels
Eureka SeveN

I can probably think of a ton more, but even though i listed naruto and bleach, those i believe are cosplayed way less [besides gaara]. and i actually never see alot of Bleach cosplays.
