Seeing as this blog now features a nice and spiffy, Samurai Champloo-inspired theme to adorn it, it feels right to feature a character from this hit 2005 Shinichiro Watanabe (of Cowboy Bebop fame) directed anime series for this week’s Cosplay Sundae entry.
Fuu is the leading lady of the show, the reason that the antagonistic warriors Mugen and Jin find themselves travelling together in the first place. 15 years of age, a dad that walked out on them when she was little, a mom who has recently passed away from illness and now a quest to find the Samurai who smells of Sunflowers. She’s a practical, precocious girl with a trusting personality (although rather prone to accidents) and has a rather surprisingly large appetite for such a petite frame.
Renowned voice actress Ayako Kawasumi voices Fuu in the original Japanese version and popular American voice actress Kari Wahlgren fills the role for the English dub, but it is an unknown American girl that goes by the handle of Riddle that fills out Fuu’s distinctive pink kimono for this week’s Cosplay shot.
Pretty nifty eh?
