AKB48 recently held a meet-up at Tokyo Big Site that anime fan and B team member Mayu Watanabe said brought back memories of last summer's Comiket. "It was so hot!"
This time she cosplayed as Sheryl from Macross F and posted pics to the blog of AKB sub-group Watarirouka Hashiritai (of which she is also a member):
Here she is along with Miku Tanabe (K team member) as Yui from K-On!:
As cute as she looks, Watanabe later lamented on her blog, "But just as I thought, I don't look good as Sheryl, lol. I don't have a nice body like Sheryl, so…it was just completely impossible. [...] I wish I had just behaved and done Ranka like a Ranka-type should."
She cosplayed as Ranka (also from Macross F) at a meet-up last December at Makuhari Messe:
This time most people recognized her as Sheryl, but she had a good laugh when someone mistook her as a character from Galaxy Express 999. "Who here is Maetel?!?"
