Cosplay x KickBox. Who’d thought of that?!

…. how can this be possible *mutters to self*. The drastic difference in a human’s behaviours and stream of thoughts never fails to amaze me.

I’m gonna sharing some old news I just found. But Before that, let me introduce two sports to you.

Kickboxing (キックボクシング?) refers to the sport of combining the grace and style of boxing with kicking. Kickboxing is a standing sport and does not allow continuation of the fight once a combatant has reached the ground.

And then the next sport that we are so familiar with.

Cosplay (コスプレ, kosupure?), short for "costume play",[1] is a fan labor type of performance art in which participants don costumes and accessories to represent a specific character or idea.

How can these 2 sports on the extreme ends of the chart fit together ? And why the hell am I writing these on my blog??


Because there is someone called Nagashima Yuichiro. And he is a Cosplay kick Boxer. A Cosplay Fighter.



Erm yeah… his not just any normal Crossdressing Cosplayer. He goes on stage and fight thigh to thigh.


It is honestly a little scary and breath taking to hear this news. In fact, I think my jaws hit the floor and snapped back up for a moment there.

But after getting my senses back I think i kinda liked the idea. Very very……..weird. But hey, its just a fan of the animanga world showing his intense passion for his hobby. And how many adults can do that?

I know I can’t =\

So even though I still find it eye scorching to look at his cosplays, I do sincerely wish him well and may he fight all the way to the top! That will show some of those anti-anime/manga elitist a thing or two! Being a fan of something branded ‘childish’ can be difficult sometimes because we are always so stereotyped and labeled failures *shrug*. And we need successful professionals to show them otherwise.

Though I think he really ought to put more effort into practicing his kicks rather than those dance steps =X
