The results of the official Muv-Luv cosplay contest organized by publisher aNCHOR and WorldCosplay have been announced.
The contest was launched a few months ago on the popular Japanese cosplay platform, challenging fans to reproduce
The final ranking is as follows:
- Yuri Inami
- Konomi Haruhara
- Setsuna Tokito
- Nyama Syuran
- Yuna Uzuki
The final ranking was determined by the number of super-hearts awarded to each cosplayer by WorldCosplay’s users added to points awarded by the judges.
As the first three in the ranking, Yuri Inami, Konomi Haruhara, and Setsuna Tokito (who cosplayed respectively Chizuru Sakaki from Muv-Luv, Kazusa Yamashiro from Total Eclipse, and Kasumi Yashiro from Alternative) will be given the chance to be official Muv-Luv cosplayers for 2021 and appear during promotional activities.
Those who ranked between fourth and tenth place will receive 50,000 yen each (approximately $474). All participants will receive Steam keys for the original trilogy.
Three special prizes have also been assigned, the Akira Itsuki Award was won by ENA, the Muv-Luv Award was won by Yonechi, and the Alternative Award was won by Discaliber who is well-known among the fanbase for his frankly awesome mecha costumes.
All three will receive 50,000 yen each.
