At Viewers Request: Cosplay Cuties
Earlier this year, Comcast’s Select On Demand sent two people to Tokyo to report from Tokyo International Anime Fair’s (TAF) floor as well as checking out the rest of the city. The catch this time was to have them report in cosplay all day. Fun was had by all.
This production of sending folks out to Tokyo and reporting from the city we love started in 2006 when our first reporter Megan would shout out “Konbanwa!” and “Konnichiwa!” to the camera. It was fun. The following year, we held auditions at New York Comic Con where we discovered Tasayu Tasnaphun. His audition rocked and the producers loved the fact that he spoke fluent Japanese. You can still check out some of his adventures via the Tokyo Reporter Blog which is still live. Here’s a video from one of his assignments:
That was 2007. In 2008, we sent Stephanie Yanez to Tokyo and she added a different dimension to her assignments. Check out the video:
So, as you can see we built up a bit of history of sending people to Tokyo – courtesy of Comcast & Select On Demand – and viewers enjoyed the adventures. If you want to see us continue this trend, then vote in the poll below. Who knows…the next lucky people could really be you. Also, the second poll asks if you want to see all episodes of Cosplay Cuties streaming on YouTube and on this blog.
