The annual celebration of Anime and Japanese culture, Animax Carnival hosted by the Japanese TV network Animax Asia, returned to the Philippines one more time after its great reception last 2015.
As it is mainly a gathering of Anime otakus, cosplay is obviously the de facto centerpiece of Animax Carnival Philippines 2016 and while numerous cosplayers attended the 2 day spectacle to, whether to join the Cosplay contests or just strut their stuff and be noticed, only a good few has managed to stand out and catch our lenses last weekend as showcasing some of the coolest cosplay (by our weird standards of course).
We may have missed out on some of the other cool guys though so do feel free to tell us in the comments below if who your own choices are in terms of the most awesome cosplayers back at Animax Carnival Philippines.
Alternatively, you can also visit our compilation album at our Facebook page over at Facebook.com/ReimaruFiles and check out more cosplay photos.
