Gantz Cosplay: Reika Shimohira (Makiron) Cosplay 01 JUL 2012

Hiroya Oku’s complex and violent science fiction fantasy tale, Gantz, gets a look in with today’s cosplay entry, thanks to a well put together costume of one Reika Shimohira, courtesy of Japanese cosplayer Makiron.

Reika Shimohira is a young, beautiful and popular idol who dies during Izumi’s killing spree in Shinjuku. Pulled into the Gantz game, Reika proves to be a formidable opponent against the aliens and also happens to fall in love with Kei Kurono.

She takes over the team leadership when he eventually departs, but a rebuff to her advances leads to a small mental breakdown and she realigns her goals in order to make the required 100 points in order to revive a new copy of Kurono for herself!
