At World Cosplay Summit (WSC) 2012, the executive committee has announced an anime project for cosplayers. Taniguchi Goro ("Code Geass: Hangyaku no Lelouch") will direct the anime.

The champion of this year's WCS was Japan team, who cosplayed in Hakuouki's costumes.

It will be a generic OVA most likely like Ai Mai Moe Can Change.

But can it top CosPrayers?
The legal age of consent in Japan is 13, so shota is totally legal in Japan. In some western countries shota might be considered child porn.

Jizzy as you would call yourself because youre a dick The most butthurt award goes to you And clearly you havent watched that many shows thats why you cant determine if a show is unique or not Or maybe you're just a child who likes common stuffs where hero saves the day and guys gets all the girls. Sad taste you have there kid you came up to me in the first place making you look more like a kid who got slapped without me even knowing it and start crying about it to me

He also did Planetes and Infinite Ryvius, so I just hope he uses those skills and doesn't dig too deep in his plothole-pocket.
Hoping for some decent slice-of-life with no connection to Code Geass.

I actually like Code Geass, in spite of its real and/or merely perceived flaws (often unnecessarily exaggerated by the harshest critics), but that has nothing to do with this new anime.

We don't know the premise nor anything else at all, which makes such an announcement ultimately meaningless. I suppose it's a good bit of trivia, but I'm not automatically interested until more details are presented.

Since we're apparently voicing our opinions on Code Geass- a true masterpiece in every sense of the word.

Now, an anime for cosplayers? Makes me curious to be frank.

An anime for cosplayers.......isn't that every anime?So,this is TOO broad.
I think "for" should be replaced with "about" because this is very confusing.

Oh & Space Brothers is still the best anime ever,in my opinion.Even when competing with Attack on Titan.

An anime for cosplayers? Sounds like it will be SOL and/or comedy.

I'll watch out of curiosity. Need more info!

So something that will mainly appeal to Cosplayers?
So an Anime about cosplayers or cosplaying basically.

I'm interested, but i want a synopsis before i assume it's going to be entertaining.

An anime for cosplayers. I guess it depends on exactly what topics they cover. I won't say pass or watch yet. It depends on what they plan on doing with it.

Now, if it turns out to be like Ohno and Tanaka from Genshiken, they will have me watching from the start... but.... right now I'm on the fence.

Let's just hope the characters don't look anorexic as hell.

Blame CLAMP not the director for that -_-

Code Geass is MUCH better than they are saying here. Furthermore, a masterpiece.

I think it's literally going to be a short anime about cosplay.

But what's more important is the story/writing, not the direction.
