Re:Zero is definitely one of this year’s hottest anime, and that was made certain when the series made a special appearance during this year’s AKB48 Janken Taikai, which is a rock paper scissors tournament. During the tournament, AKB48 member, Nana Okada, cosplayed as Ram, and she didn’t come alone!
Appearing alongside her, and taking a lot of selfies backstage, is her sister, Rina, who cosplayed as Rem. The two of them seemed like they were really enjoying themselves.
But they weren’t the only ones who appeared in Re:Zero cosplay, as HKT48’s Marina Yamada, cosplayed as Emilia, and she even came with her own Puck! The three then got together backstage.
The tournament was held at the Kobe World Kinen Hall last 10 October 2016, with AKB48’s Miku Tanabe, winning the rock paper scissors tourney while dressing up as a drunk salary man.
