Reika’s visit will be her third time at the largest cosplay-centric event in the country and her fifth visit to the Philippines. She also did a meet and greet and a cosplay workshop at UP Anime and Manga Enthusiasts‘ AME 1UP and also visited Cebu for a cosplay event there.

She first visited in Cosplay Mania ’12 alongside fellow Japanese cosplayer Kaname and judged the Finals of Cosplay Tournament of Champions (ToRCh) that year.

After the AME and Cebu visits, she returned for Cosplay Mania ’13: Overdrive alongside Kaname and Japanese mecha cosplayer Goldy.

The other meet and greet sessions announced are for first-time Manila visitors Tatsumi Inui and Cosplay Mania J.A.M. (Japanese Anime Music) artist Aya Ikeda, which are scheduled for the second day of the event.


The Meet and greet passes are limited to 100 pieces per session and will be available starting Saturday, July 26.
