Somebody just cosplayed ufotable’s tax-evading president, Hikaru Kondo during Kondo’s own Machi Asobi event
Even with the ongoing tax evasion case, embattled ufotable president Hikaru Kondo’s Machi Asobi Vol. 22 event still pushed through in Tokushima. The president and the company are facing multiple investigations due to Kondo allegedly pocketing some funds for himself. Now, Machi Asobi is a huge event for Tokushima, with cosplayers, gamers, and anime fans gathering from all over the world. And with event founder Kondo’s huge tax evasion scandal, somebody just had to cosplay him in a very cheeky manner.

The cosplayer is Reiji Itsuki, who goes by the handle name @itscrazy_cos on Twitter. He says that this is his first cosplay of the Reiwa Era. He also presented himself with lots of money. This is a reference to the fact that ufotable is known for having a seemingly unlimited budget, as well as the fact that they don’t seem to pay their taxes.
