Sakura Kasugano is a player character from the Street Fighter series of fighting games, where she is portrayed as a young Japanese schoolgirl who idolizes Ryu, whom she wants to be trained by.

Sakura first appears in Street Fighter Alpha 2, where she participates in street fighting after watching Ryu win the first World Warrior tournament. She searches for him and wishes for him to train her to be a better fighter. She eventually comes across Ryu who after a short sparring session, tells her he could not train her as he still has much to learn himself.

In Street Fighter Alpha 3, Sakura decides to travel the world to find Ryu. After trying to save him from the warrior M. Bison, Ryu promises her a rematch. She is also playable in the spin-off Street Fighter EX3.

In Street Fighter IV, years have passed since Sakura last saw Ryu, so she decides to find Ryu again for a match in the new worldwide tournament. In introduction sequences of Super Street Fighter IV, she is often seen in a group of three with Dan Hibiki and Blanka. In Rival Schools: United By Fate, Sakura is involved in the adventure between her school and various others in Aohura City. After helping her childhood friend Hinata and the others out from within the ordeal, she realizes how much it means to her to protect something she cares about.

Know Your Meme: Mega Milk Cosplay (Marie Doll) Cosplay 29 JUN 2013

mega milk meme t-shirtHa ha, it’s not often that you get someone cosplaying a popular Internet meme, but I guess if you want to widen your audience (or appeal base) then that’s what you got to do. American cosplayer Marie Doll (Maria Ramos to her mom) brings to life the infamous Mega Milk meme in this not particularly SFW shot!

First, a bit of background:

Mega Milk, or Titty Monster, is an exploitable image of a woman holding her own large cleavage with a crazed expression on her face, while wearing a shirt which reads “Mega Milk”. The character is frequently redrawn to resemble other fictional characters, alongside with the facial expression become a common PhotoShop exploitable on other faces.

The original image comes from the hentai doujin “Tiny Boobs Giant Tits History” by Shiden Akira, originally published in 2007. The “plot” revolves around a brother who insults her sisters small chest, only for the two to later make up over some “family funtime”.

Page 3 of an english scanlation by the (currently inactive) translation group Rhapfan of the doujin was spammed on 4chan across multiple boards around 2008, most prominently /v/, in an apparent attempt to force a meme with the line “Shut the f@$% up you titty monster”. Due to the frequent spammings, interest in the original doujin grew, which led to the discovery of the pose on page 4, which then resulted in the actual meme being born.

And now, the cosplay:

And a bonus which has absolutely nothing to do with the meme other than the t-shirt:

Alex later fought in several battles during the Lambent Pandemic.
