"Costume play" or "cosplay," a dress-up game that's a not-uncommon pastime of rabid anime fans, finds its way into an actual Japanese animated adventure in this anime comedy. Chako is the leader of the East Oizuki Academy Cosplay Association, and she's all fired up when her club is invited to compete in the Cosplay World Series. There's just one problem -- the East Oizuki Academy Cosplay Association actually consists of just Chako and two of her friends, and they've bluffed their way into the World Series without having especially strong skills. The only thing that can save Chako and the others is the arrival of Delmo, a fairy creature with a knack for creating clothes out of thin air. ~ Mark Deming, All Movie Guide

one of the most unwatchably bad anime i've rented this year by futurecat999 November 26, 2005 - 11:30 AM PST

oh dear, let's make this short.

from reviews i'd read, it looked like this was a healthy heaping of fan service with some cleverness and humor thrown in.

well, let me just say that the fan service is certainly there, but it bored me so badly i returned it after forcing myself to at least finish the first episode to give the show a fair chance.

wanted to turn it off much sooner.
