How exactly could Japan not win?
They invented cosplay didn't they?
Of course they were going to win.

Think of it like a beauty pageant for otaku. It's not all just cosplay apparently.

Japan is not the winner every year. If i'm not wrong, Brazil won in 2006 and 2008. France in 2007. And i think Italy won too, but i can't remember the year, but it was with Georgia, in Siren cosplay from Devilman.

This is unsurprising.

I'd be surprised if Japan lost. Didn't cosplay originate there? (In the aspect of dressing up as anime&manga characters.)
