With its anime adaptation currently experiencing much success as of late, Japanese MMORPG Blade & Soul has recently conducted a launch event for its 20th software package over at Yodobashi Akihabara last Sunday, May 11, 2014 and three of the anime’s most popular characters made an appearance.
Cosplayers dressed up as gun slinging (and debt-ridden) bounty hunter Hazuki Jin and Pleasure Gang leader Roana Dan made a special appearance during the event and they have most certainly attracted a lot of people.
Cosplayer Yuri Hamada came as Hazuki Jin, complete with her beloved pistols while Yume Hazuki cosplayed the deadly rebel, Roana Dan. The two held a cosplay photo session in front of many fans who were more than happy to oblige.
Yume Hazuki, who is a well known gravure model, posted photos from the event and revealed that a cosplayer named Miyako also appeared in the event and she cosplayed the mysterious innkeeper, Elle Karen.
The three cosplayers did not just promote the release of the new Blade & Soul MMORPG software, but also the June 25, 2014 release of the Blade & Soul anime’s vol. 1 DVD and Blu-ray.
Several lucky individuals also got to try out the new game software first hand.
