Cosplay Mania 2019 is summing up to be the biggest Japanese pop culture event of the year with a ton of guests packing the two-day schedule, from voice actors, Haikyuu! stage play actors, to a full concert set of anisong artists. But it doesn’t stop there, as Cosplay.ph unveils a new out of this world guest.
For the first time in the Philippines, a virtual YouTuber (VTuber) will take the stage to entertain the fans live! The time-travelling Egosa no Hime, Mirai Akari, will be making her appearance for Cosplay Mania’s two-day festivities!
Mirai Akari made her debut on October 27, 2017, purported to be a time traveller sent to 2017 for yet-unrevealed reasons. The concept was slowly dropped as Mirai’s popularity rose with her gaming walkthroughs and commentary videos. The ponytailed, blonde-haired VTuber was officially illustrated by KEI, the same artist who designed Hatsune Miku. She currently has 750,000 subscribers on her YouTube channel and still rising. For more updates on Mirai’s journey, visit her official website and Twitter.
Cosplay Mania 2019 will happen on September 28-29, 2019 at the SMX Convention Center. Find out more about the ticket prices here. And purchase your passes online via SM Tickets. For more updates, check out the official Cosplay Mania Facebook page.
