Puella Magi Madoka Magica Cosplay: Kyouko Sakura (Ushijima Iiniku) Cosplay 29 APR 2014

It is the veteran magical girl Kyouko Sakura of Puella Magi Madoka Magica fame that gets a cosplay outing today, courtesy of Japanese ero cosplayer Ushijima Iiniku.

Of course, being known particularly for her ero cosplay shoots, Iiniku has gone and made Kyouko’s attire a lot more revealing – by completely dropping her front skirt. In other words, not so much a magical ‘girl’ any more…

Kyouko is a veteran magical girl who comes to the city following Mami’s death. Her distinguishing features include long red hair, fangs, and a voracious appetite, almost never being seen without food. She came from a poor church family, and used her wish so that people would listen to her father’s preaching; when her father learned of this, however, he went mad and killed everyone in his family aside from Kyouko. As such, Kyouko decided only to use her magic for herself from this point on, since using it for others will only cause despair.

Having grown up in a poor family, she often has to steal food and hates people who waste it, a logic she also applies to grief seeds, as she only goes after fully grown witches.

Kyouko has been a magical girl much longer than the others, and thus is more skillful; she wields a spear which can extend itself, split into multiple sections, and produce a ball at the end of a chain, which can constrict and hit others at the same time. She also has the ability to put up barriers to protect others or keep them from interfering. She initially clashes with Sayaka, but after learning the truth about soul gems, she sympathizes with her and tries to help her. This is partially because Sayaka reminds Kyouko of her past self, as she too had made a wish for another person’s sake and tried to fight for justice. Thus, she wants to stop Sayaka from making what she believes is the same mistake and advises her to live a life of selfishness. Even though Sayaka thanks Kyouko and admits that she misunderstood her, Sayaka refuses to abandon her ideals of justice.

After Sayaka becomes a witch, Kyouko becomes determined to save her and restore her to normal. In the end, though, Kyouko becomes tired of her pain, gives up her previous ideals and abandons her outlook self-preservation, and chooses to destroy herself along with Oktavia, in an attempt to both find peace in death and make sure that Sayaka will not die alone, by overloading her soul gem to create a massive explosion that kills them both; ultimately misunderstanding Sayaka’s ideals towards magical girls, of how magical girls should survive to the best of their abilities and kill as many witches as they can.

Puella Magi Madoka Magica Cosplay: Mami Tomoe (Uri) Cosplay 05 AUG 2012

Today’s cosplay comes from the dark and tragic anime franchise Puella Magi Madoka Magica, which on the surface appears to be another generic, happy go lucky, cute magical girl series, but which quickly transforms itself into something far more dark and uneasy.

Cosplayer Uri takes it on herself to tackle the bright and frilly costume of veteran magical girl Mami Tomoe, who unfortunately meets a rather brutal end fairly early on in the series.

A veteran magical girl and a third-year student at Madoka’s school, Mami lives alone in a penthouse following the death of her parents in a car accident, one which she was able to survive only due to contracting with Kyubey in order to save her own life.

Her magical abilities include being able to produce nearly infinite amounts of Tanegashima-like flintlock rifles, yellow ribbons to suspend her enemies, and healing magic.

Mami is particularly focused on saving those around her, with a traditionally selfless perspective on the role of magical girl, and has a habit of giving names to her finishing attacks. Though her outward disposition is cheery and confident, Mami feels deeply alone as she has no friends to confide in or support her as she fights.

Madoka offers to become her partner and save her from her loneliness, but Mami is killed immediately after during battle with a witch – which as you can imagine didn’t go down very well with poor Madoka at all!
