Synopsis

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!

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.

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 ...

I´m not one of those otaku fan boys that go up in cosplay and stuff like that, but i LOVED cosplay complex. it had a decent story, a great set of characters and was, for me, hilariously funny. it was extremely well drawn and the scenes where Chako is dressed up in samurai are was incredibly and beautifully drawn. But it could be longer, the story ends rather sharply, with a cliffhanger that doesn´t really make sense.

But it is important to watch Cosplay complex as a story rather than a parody as it fails miserably at being one.

It is an great anime, but ...
