I cracked the original joke. It's MY joke!

We do know that Crus was a good guy at one point, and then he is sucked into that jewel thing and disappears. When he comes back he is a bad guy (which is the plot twist I assume is referred to earlier as "the worst plot twist ever") I do agree that he is not to be trusted now, but probably not for the same reasons as everyone else. The woman in armor that appeared to have no arms showed concern for Crus while he was the Black Knight after the main char knocked him down in the cells. He has probably found a new love in this woman, which will fit right into the story IMO.
Actually, the plot twist in episode five was Crus telling the Cosprayers that the princess was trying to revive the dark lord or whatever. So far, there has been no indication whatsoever that Crus is one of the bad guys, except for the fact that he's hanging out with a bunch of people named "Black Mikos" or whatever.

Your right... there is no indication whatsoever of Crus being bad.... EXCEPT FOR THE FACT THAT HE IS THE BLACK KNIGHT !!!!! Who was systematically attacking and capturing the cosprayers!! They show that he is most likely under the controll of some greater power, but Crus is fighting back when he contacts the main char chick and tries to warn her before they destroy the towers....

How can you be sure that he wasn't under some sort of hypnosis due to being inside of the black knight armor? He contacted the main character after his suit of armor was (presumed to be) destroyed by the Cosprayers. He might have been forced to wear the suit of armor again and fight the Cosprayers. After the suit came off, he warned them of what they were doing again.

Of course, if my idea is correct, that would mean that the story would make even less sense than it does now. I think either explanation could be correct.

Notice that with the final version of the Sailor Moon fandub they include a preview of their dub of Cosprayers?

I think this show is bad enough that a fandub might actually IMPROVE the show.

That's pretty funny I don't know how much the dub would improve it, though, since the sub quality isn't astoundingly bad. It would be interesting if they changed the script, though!

Anyway, I just finished watching episode six and... I didn't think it was as bad as some people were saying. For me, it answered some very, very important questions:

1) What Priscilla's favorite food is.
2) Whether or not Scarlet is actually a masochist.
3) Does the small Miko like to bungie jump?
4) When is the crucifix bondage going to come? I CAN'T WAIT ANY LONGER FOR MY SWEET, SWEET CRUCIFIX BONDAGE!!

For those of you confused by the crazy puppet, you should watch the ending sequence again. The miko that was being tortured sleeps with that stuffed uh... person.

Whelp, episode 7 is out. Enjoy the 2nd to last episode of this bad series. Before people ask, here's the translator note for the 'Takama no Hara' bloodline.

Well, I just finished watching episode seven of Cosprayers and... holy crap it stopped making sense again. It started to almost make some sense in episode six, but here it just blew everything apart. I'm just going to post a few of my thoughts on the episode...

1) Did anybody notice that the giant statue looked like a person with breasts and a giant tentacle sticking out of its crotch, or was it just me? No, seriously. I mean it.

2) I can understand why Crus never fell in love with Scarlet, what with her being so fickle and all.

3) Why was the creator of the charm bracelets encouraging the Mikos to defeat the enemy? I mean, of all people, I would have at least expected HIM to know what was going on.

4) Why did the Black Mikos try to kill our heroes before if the girls were helping them?

5) Why is Koto called "Miko Reiya", but when they transform they say "Reiya Change"? Are they all called Miko Reiya?

6) Where was Koto going to in the first episode, anyway? A Cosprayin-- er, I mean CosPLAYING convention of some sort?

7) How is it that Scarlet can destroy an entire tower with a single blow, but she couldn't defeat the dark knight without Koto? Did she really gain THAT much power in such a short period of time?

8) I've been trying to make some sense out of how Crus was torturing the girls in episode six. I think that he was doing that to show the Black Mikos that he was on their side, but still helping the girls.

9) Why doesn't the Black Miko Reiya have arms?

10) See? I told you so, Chobits! *flex*

1) yeah... it's some symbolism. go ahead and beat your head over that one...

5) all the girls have a unique 'reiya' name. Scarlet is called Sister reiya. Priscilla's reiya name has something to do with india, Remi and Iko's reiya names come from their respective 'locations. I think Iko is from some south american location and Remi is from the middle east. Miko Reiya is just yelled alot cause she's the one blindly running around causing havoc to boneyjellyfish's mind.

6) She was at a class field trip, but she decided to go outside cosplaying since the shrine they were at was one of the locations of her favorite game, Dorifai3 (dream figher 3)

9) if you look carefully in previous eps(yeah I KNOW you want to ) she's been wearing a stright jacket this whole time for some reason. more of that BDSM fetish stuff I guess.


That make things clearer? *snicker

6) Wow! What a coincidence that she just happened to bring her Cospraying... sorry, CosPLAYING outfit with her.

9) Yeah, that's what I was wondering about. Why has she been wearing the straight jacket? I suppose your answer was good enough, though... it just proves to me that the anime was made for men who like bondage.

What ever gave you that idea? I'm going to give MOE another chance after Cosprayers ends and Smash Hit! starts, but if that ends up being as bad, I'll be pissed ~_~

Wow! this surely is a series with many twists, I mean, about that Takitsuhime, she's good, she's bad, she's good, she's bad... oh well, the moral of the story?
Spoiler:


what a series! XD

PS: about the "Takama no Hara", shouldn't it be "Takamagahara", which means "the plain of high heaven"?

Both are common terms for them, which mean the exact same thing. See the translator note as I mentioned a few posts back.

You should be watching this series, Keitaro! It has many uses other than lack of entertainment. For instance:

(Location: random bar)

Tough Guy: "I lost this leg of mine fighting a shark with me bare hands. He jus' about tore me apart, but I beat him up, I did!"

Me: "Oh yeah? Well *I* watched Cosprayers!"

Bar: *GASP!*

4) hmm... I think you mean those four dark princes? well for all we know they may just want to propose to those hot cosprayers... in their own way... maybe their traditional method of proposing to a girl involves threatening to kill her first...

5) I think it should actually be Mikorayer instead of "miko reiya", it just means she's the Miko Cosprayer. Miko means shinto priestess/shrine maiden, which is what Koto cosplays... err... cosprays. Scarlet is Sisterayer since she cospl(r)ays a Church Sister...

8) Well, it's just a way of teaching us to have faith, I guess... or something. That to have faith in god, even if he tortures you and appears evil and does all kinds of suspicious things, you should always believe in him no matter what, accept all those tortures and sufferings from him happily... or bad things happen... like the destruction of the world...

The opening to Cosprayers was confusing as hell. I think I explained it SOMEWHERE... basically Koto put her Miko Fighter Misuzu outfit in her backpack, and was going to do a ritual to "gain courage".
