Top 5 Costumed Characters

Happy Halloween, Everybody!

We're celebrating the season by listing the Top 5 Costume-Wearing Characters in Anime.

#5 - Shunsuke Akagi as Eagle Mascot (Dai Guard)
[Check it out at the 01:30 mark.]
Before Akagi was the lead pilot of giant robot Dai Guard, he was just another office worker for the 21st Century Defense Corporation, putting in some extra hours with the PR team as the company mascot. Don't worry, Akagi, you'll be fighting Heterodynes in no time!

#4 - Eri Ninamori as Jack/Marquis de Carabas in Puss 'n Boots (FLCL)

As class president and mayor's daughter, Ninamori has a lot to live up to. This includes making sure she gets starring role in the school play. In the BEST episode of FLCL, we learn that Ninamori is human just like everyone else. But what about those glasses? You'll just have to watch.

#3 - Chiyo-Chan as Penguin (Azumanga Daioh)
The cute gets cuter when child genius Chiyo dons a penguin costume for the school's cultural festival. Just don't trip her.

#2 - Isaac Dian & Miria Harvent as _____ & _____ (Baccano!)

Take your pick for costumes. Isaac and Miria do every time they go on another heist.

#1 - Ed as Pumpkin-head (Cowboy Bebop: The Movie--Knockin' on Heaven's Door)

Ed gets the #1 vote because she's actually going Trick or Treating--well, sort of, to search for a bad guy. Enjoy Ed and faithful Ein on their haunting adventure, starting at 05:45.
