Class is In Session at Akihabara Animate

During my high school days I was near the bottom of my class because I prioritized Pokemon over homework. It's not that I didn't have the smarts, it's the faculty's fault for not recognizing my true potential! That's why I can relate to Tatsuya from The Irregular at Magic High School. Animate in Akihabara was running a pop-up shop, so how could I resist paying a visit to my animated alter-ego?

Character designs are neat because they clue you in on what the production staff are picky about. Oh sure I can understand paying attention to the uniforms and insignias, but giving art direction for fingernails and the sole of your shoe? Anime is serious business. 

Of course it doesn't get more serious than these ACOS cosplay outfits. The days of sweating over a sewing machine are over, now you can have everything pre-packaged. This leaves cosplayers more time for the important thing, like sculpting true-to-design CADs!

Miyuki loves her onii-san and so does everyone else! Tatsuya is the big brother of choice this season. If you're not a believer yet, just wait until the anime gets into the Yokohama Disturbance arc and you'll learn to love an OP main character.
