View Full Version : Cosplay Complex

08-01-2002, 05:28 PM
Who's seen it? What did you think? Personally, I hated it. I mean, I know the Hand Maid May group are known for fan service anime, but damn it! Cosplay isn't about fan service! It's hard work and creative expression, not panties and big boobs *fumes*

Never seen it. Is it something I should see when bringing a hot date over? Kidding! >_O

Cosplay, to be as much as the character as possible, that is the goal of some people who Cosplay, am I correct? But still feels like there's more to it. . .

More? Maybe obsessive compulsive disorder, what else I am not sure of.

08-03-2002, 12:23 AM
hmm could be...lol then again what do I know?

08-03-2002, 06:44 PM
What is CC?

08-03-2002, 11:51 PM
CC? from what I know could be Card Captors or some other meaning to it

:confused: Whats this complex you talk of?

08-04-2002, 02:31 PM
I guess it's what makes up a cosplay, what the basics are and such

This is the most confused thread ever. We all sound like deaf ladies at a tea party.

...now I'm confused...what is it again?

08-05-2002, 10:20 PM
This topic is confusing as heck.... Umm... yeah.... Boobs are cool, so what if people dress as skanky or slutty as the character they're supposed to be? It's the point! IE Lulu, Celine, and other skantily clad girls...

When did you suddenly get to talking about boobs and skanks? o_O

08-05-2002, 11:52 PM
I dunno it wasn't mentioned earlier about fanservice.... this topic is so confusing! I'm secretly a woman dressed as man dressed as a woman dressed as a man and ronald mcdonald is lost in time! OH NO! NOTHING CAN STOP THE GRIMACE! >_<

08-06-2002, 08:48 PM
so as to somehow put a slight touch on sanity into this thread...
I watched the first episode of Cosplay Complex and I agree about the fanservice. I'm curious when this airs on TV time wise.... I laughed almost all the way through, but it's one of those shows where you are thinking "this is so wrong, this is so wrong" all the way through >.<
I'm hoping it calms down a bit in later episodes.

I wish there was another show about cosplay that was more like how they represented it in Comic Party. :) I think that was a bit more true to the cosplay spirit.

08-06-2002, 09:31 PM
Hehe just watched the 1st episode and yeah...there are so many things that are messed up about it..but it's funny nonetheless!

I think I'll keep watching...

08-06-2002, 09:36 PM
Wait, what? It's a TV show? Or is it like, on the internet? O.o;;

*stumbles around in a confused daze*

Its a anime show. We are showing the first episode at MTAC this weekend. The ending credits have pictures of some actual cosplayers.

It reminds me of the time I tried to explain I was crossplaying as a crossdresser of debatable gender and the poor victim (who had just asked the /wrong/ question) just stared at me with these wide uncomprehending eyes. LOL

I won't even mention the whole yaoi/yuri etc debate when it comes to crossdressing. LOL It's just circular thinking anyway.

Some people do it cuz the character in whatever anime/videogame dose, others just do it for the attention.

I saw an ep of it....doesn't have much of a plot and it was funny in some areas. I thought the Giant Squid costume from Hand Maid May was damn funny though.

Okay, so, um, this is about something someone saw that involved skantaly clad cosplayers? I'm with everyone else. This is confusing. I mean, if someone's cosplaying a character that is dressed a little provocatively and they do the same isn't it called attention to detail? I dressed as Carmila from Vampier Hunter D: Blood Lust. Have you seen her costume. No panties but boy is there clevege. Dose this make my costume a fan service costume? Oh, I'll admit that the guys sure liked it but so what. I guess what I'm getting at is not every costume or cosplayer is conservative and they shouldn't be either. Imagine how boring a convention would get if every body dressed as nuns. EEEHAHHHUKKKkkkk. I shudder to think of it.

i think people are really confused...

this topic started because of an ANIME called COSPLAY COMPLEX

not about real cosplayers ^_^;; not about real fan service ^_^;;

it's about a wacky anime called cosplay complex that has a lot of weird things all packed into one anime. has anybody seen past episode 1? I'm curious if it calms down in later episodes or if it remains really wacky.

09-01-2002, 02:58 PM
Yeaaahhh, I see the first episode, it's quite fun!!

I hope the serie will continue like that!
The best part is for me the ending! : when we can see photos of real cosplayers!!
It's only japanese cosplayers, but maybe the animators could take photos of american, italian or french cosplayers too.

I already see "France 5" in a anime (Happy Lesson/ France 5 is a mini film quite like a sentai made by fans for fans )

09-03-2002, 05:29 AM
can anyone give me a vague idea of what the anime's about? I mean, is it worth buying? Renting? Watching on cable? I'm in Japan now, so I'm curious as to what spiffy new animes to get ^^*

09-03-2002, 06:57 AM
well it's the story of 5 girls (to never changes)and one guy (the manager) who has created a club of cosplay in theyre college.
4 japanese and one italian ...
It's seems funny but every girls has a G cup -so it's kinda perverse anime.

It's make by the same staff than Hand Maid May (cute drawings).

that's all... i dunno if it's on tV (i think not, well i hope not, it's ecchi)

09-16-2002, 03:07 AM
when the words breats and panties came up, it was just a matter of time before i posted something :D

ok ok so its a anime about cosplayers who cosplay as other anime character, when there in a anime themselves.....could you imagine if someone cosplayed as them.

So there a big boobs and panties....uh huh....where can i get this now?

09-16-2002, 05:53 AM
I've got to episode 2 and it only gets weirder...starnge ecchi stuff going on all over the place, the new blonde girl is the most disturbing one....and you get to see the main girl going out with her love interest....

09-22-2002, 05:46 PM
*lol* I forgot I even posted this. Silly me. Thank you Tenshi, for clearing things up. I think I'm just sensitive when it comes to cosplay and making it for the benefit of the viewer. I'm ok with cosplay hentai, cuz the costumes are professionally made and all, but it just annoys me when people take someone's hard work and make it all about fan service. I can't count how many times I've heard "Her boobs aren't big enough" as a response to a good looking cosplayer in a gorgeously made costume. It just gets frustrating

The new blonde girl is a pedo. *has sceen caps somewhere*

09-23-2002, 04:21 PM
Who has subbed the second ep?

09-24-2002, 04:26 AM
I remember reading a review for this show in animerica or something, seems weird, but being a male like I am, enjoyable.

09-24-2002, 06:19 PM
Does anyone have any pictures? o.o;

09-27-2002, 07:56 PM
