Japan’s Top Cosplayer Enako Dresses Up as Rumiko Takahashi Characters for New Book


Enako is known as Japan’s top cosplayer for good reason, and her success reflects her status within the industry. Her latest endeavor has her teaming up with renowned manga creator Rumiko Takahashi to bring some of her most famous characters to life in a new photo book, which is currently scheduled to hit shelves in Japan this September.

All in all, Enako will show off more of her cosplay skills while dressed up as 10 of Takahashi’s characters, as well as an original character the author created just for the occasion. Among the characters will be fan-favorites from the likes of Maison Ikkoku, Ranma 1/2, Inuyasha and more, and you can see how she looks as Lum from Urusei Yatsura in the teaser image.

The as-yet untitled book will be priced at ¥2,979 (about US$23), and is up for pre-order ahead of its September 6 street date.
