Photography by
Mouzycat Cosplay Photographer

AKIRA is a 1988 animated film that is perceived by many as the one that started the Japanese animation invasion in America and is essentially attributed to the surge of anime’s popularity in American culture. AKIRA is considered to be a cult classic, inspiring many sci-fi films that were made in America. We follow our hero Shotaro Kaneda, a wisecracking head of a motorcycle gang, as he teams up with Kei, an agent of a rebellion group to save his friend Tetsuo in a dystopian future Japan whose government is hiding a secret program that could not only destroy Tetsuo but everything else. This was a dream shoot of RenChan's as AKIRA is one of her first beloved anime. These haunting photos were taken during Anime St. Louis 2019 by the ever incredible Mouzycat Cosplay Photographer. Cosplayers: Shotaro Kaneda (RenChan), Tetsuo (RN Ninja), and Kei (YomuChan).

The Woman Called Fujiko Mine

Photography by
Ruffshots Photography

Lupin III is the world's most wanted gentleman thief and the grandson of infamous Arsène Lupin. Lupin acts incompetent, but this is mostly a façade to throw his opposition off balance. Lupin is frequently jailed but not for long, as he always manages to get loose. Lupin has a special infatuation with women, Fujiko Mine in particular. She is perhaps his biggest weakness, as it often lands him in undesirable situations. In A Woman Called Fujiko Mine, Lupin infiltrates a suspicious religious group, hoping to steal the treasure their leader keeps hidden. It is during this heist he first meets the bewitching Fujiko and is essentially Fujiko's original story. Fujiko has a special place in Mari.aftermight's heart and she truly is the best Fujiko we have ever seen. These sensual photos were taken at the Kalahari Arcade during Colossal Con 2019 by Ruffshots Phytography. Cosplayers: Fujiko Mine (Mari.aftermidnight).
