Meet Chako and her friends from the Cosplay Association at East Oizuki Academy! They're the hottest new cosplay team in Japan...fresh from a winning streak of local battles, they're set to sweep the Cosplay World Series!

Yeah, right.

In reality, Chako and her friends are barely able to keep their club alive at all. Feeble club membership and a lack of sponsorship might be the end of their cosplay dreams before they can even start. But don't you dare underestimate this group of spunky girls! They'll survive a barrage of pervy newcomers, cosplay rivalries, costume disasters and dating mishaps in order to reach their ultimate goal of competing in the World Series. The clothing flies as the girls suit up (and strip down) for Cosplay Complex!

Cosplay complex is a three episode OVA about... well, cosplay...

Story: Cosplay Complex, in a nutshell, is about a cosplay club in a high school. (Can't really say anymore because one little thing can spoil 1/3 of the episode ==)
The story kinda highlights a few main events in a sport anime and doesn't really follow have a logical plot but since this anime is an individual OVA, it does not have to make sense.

Art: What can I say here? This is made in 2002, so you just have to lower your expectation a bit. For that time period, the animation is not too shabby. While ...

Well what can I say about this, there are only three episodes and that's it nothing else & I thought was gonna be a whole series or something I thought the anime was pretty okay it had it's moments it was pretty good.

So what the fuck happened there is literally no information on this at all which is a shame the story is okay but It fit well with what was going on.

So if anyone has any updated information about it please let me know & If you haven't watched it yet but you like comedy's give this a chance it's not the best but ...

This was...simply terrible. It fails even as a parody. I truly wish I had never seen it. The music was awful, the characters were flat, the animation was mediocre. Was this supposed to be a parody? If so, it wasn't even SLIGHTLY funny.

Save your brain cells and don't watch this.
