I'm going to go ahead and assume short one-shot OVA as well. I doubt this turns into a TV series, given that it's being done at the request of a convention, basically.

not really

I am a massive Code Geass fan. It will be interesting to see what they come up with.

An anime where its characters cosplay as their favourite characters from existing series. To save the world.

If that would be the case, it'd really be interesting :D

Sounds like it could be interesting at least...

I could see this being an anime like Genshiken and Comic Party.

Isn't the reason for Cosplay to dress up as specific characters people like?

...So....creating a quality show with extremely likable quality characters is the goal here?

....Too bad it won't happen.

not sure if worth watching or not

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.

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

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

Blame CLAMP not the director for that -_-

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.

What? I don't get it.

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.

Aug 4, 2012 4:33 PM by Vyudali

So i'm guessing an anime about cosplaying for people who enjoy cosplay?
