    Gotou Yuuko as Anya on CosCosPlayPlay

    Here’s the random video for the day:


     

    As some of you might know, Gotou Yuuko voiced Anya in CODE GEASS R2 as well as many other popular characters like Mikuru from Suzumiya Haruhi. She appeared on yesterday’s episode of CosCosPlayPlay – a program on Fuji Satellite TV featuring a lot of cosplay tips and info – cosplaying as Anya. In the video, she does a sketch (she’s known for being good at drawing) and acts out some lines (explaining to the host who Marianne is in the process), all while in costume. It’s pretty cute and worth a watch if you’re a GEASS fan, though I don’t think the Anya look really suits her.

    The Daily Dose

    Hey everyone, a lot of events that have occurred recently left Random Curiosity in a pinch, well kinda ^^’. Divine was a great asset but unfortunately he has left for personal reasons, leaving Omni to once again man the fort on his own. Over the past few months I’ve noticed that the Daily Dose hasn’t made much of a presence like it used to. It was a convenience since it supplied information that everyone looked forward to reading and I felt it made Random Curiosity unique in its own way. I’ve recently contacted Omni and offered my help by doing the Daily Doses in his place. I’m looking forward to working with all of you.
