RtP! to Cover The World Cosplay Summit in Nagoya

hm

For the first time, RtP! is sending a camera crew to cover the world’s largest cosplay competition championship in Nagoya, Japan. Even though we’ve lived in Japan for the past few years we haven’t been able to make it to the event before. For those that don’t know, cosplay teams from around the world gather in Nagoya and perform on stage in the final rounds of the competition on August 6 and 7. There’s also a number of cosplay related events taking place in the weeks prior to the championship.

Design Festa Spring 2016

Design Festa is the largest art festival in Asia which is held biannually at Tokyo Big Site in Odaiba, Japan. Artists from all over the world are invited to express themselves in any way they see fit  through their work, regardless of their age, nationality, or even their talent. The festivities include a bazaar, stage performances, and most notably, live paintings by artists on canvases that range in size from a couple meters to a couple stories tall which are painted for the duration of the weekend long event. With no limits or restrictions on what can be exhibited, there are plenty of interesting, beautiful, and sometimes disturbing things to be seen here. RTP’s own Lost Link and Seagz retuned once again to see what was in store this year.

ANIMEJAPAN 2016

AnimeJapan is the biggest animation event in Japan where companies will set up booths to showcase and announce upcoming shows. This year Lost Link and Seagz visited the event with the intent to tag team video coverage. Although it was nowhere near as busy as Comiket, over 135 thousand attendees were strolling around the halls of Tokyo Big Sight.

Katsucon 2015 Success!

maleficent

I returned to Katsucon this year, surviving the long flight from Japan and encountering no snow storms! Seagz and b-rock were unable to attend but I got to meet and hang out with a lot of cool people. The convention was filled with videographers and it was awesome meeting them all in person for the first time after watching their videos and talking online. RealTDragon and Cosplay With Me were especially rad dudes.

Summer Comiket Approaches!

bigsite

Are you prepared for the heat? I know I’m not. On August 15-17, b-rock, Seagz and Lost Link will be prowling the congested, sweaty halls of Tokyo Big Sight for comic gold. Meaning porn. It’s mostly porn. But art comes in many shapes and flavors. Last year Comiket was on the hottest day of the year and people were collapsing and being transported from the building on medic stretchers. Soo if you’re heading to Odaiba next weekend be sure to bring water or visit the vending machines frequently. Lost Link’s black Steadicam vest is definitely going to be great fun to wear for three days toiling around the outdoor parking lots, fighting photographers for sexy cosplay footage.

We’ll be sure to report in on our Comiket loot, pictures and video shenanigans. And porn. Probably lots.


RtP! to Cover the Tokyo Game Show 2014!

logo

We’ll be sending in the boys to tackle Japan’s largest video game show in September. Last year Lost Link almost met Kojima. What could happen this year? We’re hoping for some Persona 5 news as well as some Square Enix “we’ll always be in development” teases for KH3 or FFXV. And of course there’s always room for more Phantom Pain. We’ll also be checking out the indies and playable demos on the show floor. And Lost Link will most likely have the cosplay scene covered fully.

We’ll also be having a special guest fly down from Canada to join in our ultimate game coverage team. What mad things will he have to say? Probably nothing short of summer heat complaints.

TGS 2014 is September 20-21 2014 at the Makuhari Messe, in Chiba.


Comiket 85 Winter Review!

Here’s a look inside the winter Comic Market in Japan. It’s crowded.


Comiket 2013 Cosplay Showcase!

The crowds have dissipated, the sun has set and the all the hentai sold. Comiket 84 is finished. But the cosplay lives on in this music video (which a quick youtube search suggests) is the very first to come out of Comiket in Odaiba, Japan.

Special thanks to the rockin idol, Yuriko Tiger!


Summer Wonder Festival 2013

wonder fest

Yesterday I had a chance to stop by the Makuhari Convention center in Chiba to check out what Japan’s Wonder Festival was all about. The convention focuses on figures and lots of companies had booths set up to reveal upcoming releases. However, there were many other things being showcased and sold including steam punk gear, a giant King Ghidorah marionette, and some damn creepy statues to name a few. The halls also had some elaborate anime decorations (like the wall from Shingeki no Kyojin) and there was an anime concert at the end of the day. And of course, wherever crowds of otaku gather, cosplayers are not far behind.
