Four Tricks to Cosplay as Monroe

The typical Monroe bingle: hair to the ears, big curves and lifting fringe. Hair should be colored into platinum blonde. You need to do curves from the scalp. Remember: big and fluffy curves. What’s more, the hairs close to your cheek should be rolled inside. The side and back hairs are rolled outside. Of course, you can roll your hairs inside first and then get them scattered.

Trick2. Plump red lips


Want to cosplay as Monroe, the oriental red is a must. The mauve, coral, pink and deep red are not enough for Monroe’s flaming lips. In order to accentuate the flaming lips, you had better brush your face with whitest powder. In addition, the beauty spot on the upper right of the mouth is one of Monroe’s symbols. Many imitators put on a mole for a vivid Monroe.

Tricks3. Flying eyebrow and exquisite eye lines


The eyes makeup of Monroe features flying eyebrow and exquisite eye lines. The flying eye line is widely used by Monroe makeup. Draw eye lines five to eight millimeters from the outer corner of eyes. Then you will have a gorgeous look. Before delicately drawing eye lines, shade brown eye liners and make a deep and clear contour.

Tricks4. Innocent verve


There are numerous people cosplaying as Monroe. But only a few people can make a vivid Monroe. That’s why? Most of Monroe cosplayers just focus on looks and neglect the innocent verve which is particular to Monroe. The innocence, passion and happiness are the radical reasons that Monroe is Monroe.

Top 10 Classic Anime – Go with 80s’ Grow-up

Lots of interesting, exciting, frustrating or horrific things happened during everybody’s growth path. But surely, not everything leaves a deep impression for us. In most cases, cartoon or animation will be deeply remembered. Then, when it comes to classic anime that goes with 80s’ grow-up, how many do you still remember now? Below, let’s take a look at 10 anime that are considered to be the most classic for 80s.

Top 1: Arale – Relaxing

Arale is another amusing masterpiece from Akira Toriyama, themed on an unbeatable machine baby. Lots of 80s dreamed of having an Arale at that time. The story is exaggerating and funny, winning favor from both boys and girls. It makes us feel relaxed. Villains’ ending is often miserable yet also comedic.

Top 2: Flash Kicker – Inspirational

Flash Kicker by Yoichi Takahashi is one of the most popular sports anime in 90s. It does not only arouse a wave in the anime industry, but also makes more Japanese youngsters fall in love with this athletics. Tsubasa Ozora, Taro Misaki and Genzo Wakabayashi represent numerous athletes who are fond of football and run on the football ground. Although plots are so conventional and the capability of Tsubasa Ozora and Japanese team is unlimitedly exaggerated, these flaws didn’t cover the shine on the anime at all during that time.

Top 3: Ranma 1/2 – Comedic

This is the most important anime produced by Takahashi Rumiko in the earlier stage. Like Arale, it’s relaxing and humorous. But funny style on Ranma affects lots of anime works in the later. Most of 80s are yearning for this anime. Even though Inuyasha draws most attention at present, it still can’t surpass the popularity of Ranma, which stole the show at that time.

Top 4: Detective Conan – Unveiling the Truth

It refers to an inferential anime created by Aoyama Gōshō, rather popular. 2,500,000 volumes of offprint are sold on average and it’s serialized till now. Comparing with above anime, this one is much younger. But tense plots and appropriate atmosphere make readers immerse in the anime. Although some cases feel too simple or naive while being compared with Kindaichi Hajime, Conan’s image charm is far stronger than Kindaichi Hajime’s. This anime makes us remember the sentence: there is only one truth.

Top 5: Touch – Sweet yet Bitter

Mitsuru Adachi is an author, who is good at seizing characters’ inner world. Touch is also a sports anime. But I prefer to consider it to be an emotion anime. Baseball is just a carrier. With its help, the author writes down love that is most sincere and true. He makes readers personally experience this love. While recalling, you will feel sweet and also a little bitter. Maybe, this is exactly that what Mitsuru Adachi wants to express. Fine description, anime roles’ eye contact and words they wish to speak but stop on a second thought all make us feel the emotion that only oozes out from love.

Top 6: Gundam – Epic

What does Gundam stand for? In Japan, it definitely symbolizes a monument or an epic. Actually speaking, I don’t like anime themed on outer space. But great influence made by Gundam can’t be neglected at all. So far, Gundam series is the most successful anime in inspiring people to produce peripherals. A set of genuine Gundam model is deeply loved by Gundam devotees. For sure, it’s sold on a little expensive price. Gains brought by this anime are absolutely incomparable with what other common anime created.

Top 7: Saint Seiya – Childhood

What does Saint Seiya mean? Yes, it stands for childhood – 80s’ childhood, who saw Japanese anime when they were children. Those mysterious Greece legends, dazzling stoles and rather beautiful move names do leave such a deep impression on lots of 80s. More than 20 years have gone. Other anime from Masami Kurumada has been forgotten. But Saint Seiya will be forever remembered. Names like Seiya, Hyoga, Shiryu, Shun and Ikki can’t be effaced however many years later.

Top 8: Doraemon – Dream

It’s known as Amon, Tinker Bell, Machine Cat and uniformly called as Doraemon at last. Protagonist also has lots of names like Nobi, Nobita, etc. Both of these can illustrate how influential Doraemon was at that time. People who watched Doraemon loved to dream and dream to be Doraemon. I also want to have a machine cat or a magical bag. Fujiko F. Fujio leaves us with a dream or a wish. In 80s, Japan was in a phase of economic crisis. Anime industry was also impacted intensely. Fortunately, there was Doraemon, which gave the nation a dream. And it’s exactly people who dreamed that became mainstream and backbone of the Japanese society, who helped the economy in Japan rise again.

Top 9: Slam Dunk – Perfect

Roles in Slam Dunk are warm-blooded, funny, fighting and emotional. I really can’t come up with another anime that can perfectly fuse all of these elements in that era. Yes, only Slam Dunk did this! It’s loved by both boys and girls. In most cases, people will like one manga yet dislike another one. This even makes sense on Saint Seiya, Doraemon and Dragon Ball. But Slam Dunk is an exception, which draws favor from all people. Anybody will fall in love with it once watching. You can’t help but feeling fascinated with it, maybe because of Rukawa Kaede, Sakuragi Hanamichi, Hisashi Mitsui or Takenori Akagi. Anyway, there must be a role you like. Slam Dunk is a masterpiece from Inoue Takehiko. Probably, you also complain why such a wonderful anime is made to be only 101 episodes. Why does it end so fast? Maybe, it’s like Venus. Mutilation is also a kind of beauty, which is definitely Inoue Takehiko’s aesthetic viewpoint.

Top 10: Dragon Ball Z – A Monument Work

If you didn’t watch Dragon Ball in the early 90s, you may be not an oppidan. But if you didn’t hear of Dragon Ball, you should not a terran, XD. Akira Toriyama is worthy of a master. He used several roles from the Chinese classical literature “The Journey To The West” and quickly opened a path on the Japanese anime market. In the early stage of Dragon Ball before the evil of Piccoro appeared, he used a comedic pattern, which was the same with what’s used in Arale. Then, when it came to Piccoro, Saiyan and Namekian, Dragon Ball was changed. It became a tremendous work or an insuperable peak. We can’t know how many people were watching Dragon Ball at that time. But we can know how many people were not watching Dragon Ball. This is exactly the charm of Dragon Ball. Seven Dragon Balls changed the world and the universe. Are there really Dragon Balls in the world? I have been thinking about this till now.

Then, is there any other anime that leaves a unique or deep impression for you in the childhood? For me, I more like Kindaichi.

Top 10 Pretty Anime Girls

Among frequently launched votes, the most beautiful anime girls or the coolest anime boys seem like eternally hot topics. Below is exactly another poll themed on pretty girls in Japanese anime. Ten girls are believed to stand out. Now, let’s take a look.

Top 1: Teresa from Claymore

In an era when human beings became food for demons, some people transplanted demons’ flesh and blood into females’ bodies. Females become monsters that carry features of both humans and demons to fight against evil spirits. All of them carry big swords. Humans and demons, who feel afraid and disgusted about them, call them claymore.

Even though claymores have bodies that look like humans’ and also demons’, all of them have tall figures, blond hair and silver eye pupils, seeming rather pretty. And exactly due to beautiful appearance, they are also called as silver eye pupil succubaes. Teresa is the most powerful claymore. She will never release her demon force however strong monsters she meets. Never will there be ugly distortion on her comely face! Having a forever beautiful and dolce look, she will charm the crowd once smiling. But her heart is filled with loneness and sadness. Because of being powerful and graceful, Teresa also seems rather aloofly proud and cold. Until meeting Clare, she perceived her life meaning. Without any hesitation, she fights for Clare and also for herself. Teresa, who is strong and brave, smiles forever.

Top 2: Euphemia Li from Code Geass

Euphemia Li, the third princess in the superpower Britannia, is an innocent, happy, kind and dolce girl. She is almost an incarnation for perfectness, who spares no efforts to build a Special Administrative Zone of Japan in the region under Mount Fuji and make people there equally coexist with Britannia people. But since her plan totally violates her brother’s intention, she is killed finally. In spite of being a princess, Euphemia doesn’t have political right and feel helpless and hesitant.

Top 3: Kikyo from Inuyasha

Being powerful, Kikyo was the psychic before her death, who guarded the soul jade. Because of falling in love with semi-demon Inuyasha, she was used by Naraku, who stole the soul jade and scapegoated to Inuyasha. After sealing Inuyasha, she also died. 50 years later, seal on Inuyasha was removed by Higurashi Kagome. Kikyo also revived by witchcraft. Then, these three persons developed into an entangling relation. Different with Kagome’s innocence and kindness, Kikyo is more clever, lonely and more beautiful. A dead, yet still living person, who got rid of the constraint of soul jade, can hate and love freely. But owing to sadness in the heart, her love for Inuyasha tends to become more intense.

Top 4: Haibara Ai from Detective Conan

As cold as Kikyo, Haibara Ai feels more amiable because environment around her is closer to reality. Having tawny hair, white complexion and azure blue eyes, she is a Japanese and British mix-blooded with a breathtaking appearance. Besides, she is also a medical genius with super high intelligence, who makes people can’t help but falling in deep love with her.

Top 5: Ayanami Rei from Neon Genesis Evangelion

Any anime lover should know Ayanami Rei, who is considered to be the goddess in the anime world. A clone warrior with blue hair and red eyes seems cold yet actually warm-hearted. Even though seeming cool anytime, her stunning prettiness charms all people while smiling. She defeated the queen in the Nausicaa of the Valley of Wind and created an unprecedented miracle in the Japanese anime world.

Top 6: C.C from Code Geass


Here is another cool beauty — queen of C.C. She leaves a deep impression on lots of people by ageless appearance, eternal life, mysterious past, graceful queen-like accent and a loyal customer for Pizza Hut.

Top 7: Lacus Clyne from Gundam Seed


Lacus Clyne is the favorite on animation festivals in recent years, who won the laurel of the most popular female character frequently. She has elegant long hair in pink, pride and charming smile. To be honest, she should appear on the “top 5” list. But in Japan where ten batches of pretty anime girls are born every day, Lacus Clyne has no longer been young.

Top 8: Sakura from Reservoir Chronicle


Princess Sakura seems more dolce and cute under dreamlike and romantic painting style adopted by Clamp.

Top 9: Sanzenin Nagi from Hayate the Combat Butler


Being cute and arrogant, Sanzenin Nagi is irresistibly appealing. Double golden ponytails make her seem so kawaii, XDD.

Top 10: Kuchiki Rukia from Bleach


Kuchiki Rukia is different with any of above girls. And you may think she is not as beautiful as above girls. But if you are a devotee for Bleach and have known temperament of this girl, you will change your thought. Being calm, kind and brave, she is undoubtedly beautiful.

Everybody has his/her own “top beautiful anime girls” in mind. So, have you also found your favorite girls in those fictional stories? Why not share with us below?
