Customer Review

on 18 November 2007
this was one of the most disappointing dvd releases of the year for me. i was looking forward to purchasing it since i first heard of its release and when i bought it (near-on a month ago) i was anything but happy.

the story revolves around a girl called chako who is a member of the cosplay club at there school. when there team runs into hard times its up to them to find a new recruit and save the club from being canceled. this
is when an exchange student joins the club and from there on i honestly couldn't figure out the plot.

there are 2 problems with cosplay complex in my view:

1.it's flippancy : the story flips between so many sub plots that don't really go anywhere. and in some cases it drags out scenes making them pointlessly long

2.the shortness:another problem with this anime is that it attempts to do to much within 3 episodes and this makes it near impossible to actually think about whats happening on screen, which essentially causes the plot to weaken.

reading reviews of this DVD i was placed under the impression that it was going to share the same kind of humor as excel saga and in certain cases it made me raise a chuckle (hence the 2 star rating)

as for special features there is the usual clean opening and closing options as well as a few short segments about the concept art and even a couple of easter eggs layered throughout

although it is on the other hand very knowledgeable with its charicters. expect many cosplay charicters from manga and anime by the bucketful

if you are looking for a brilliantly funny anime you may want to look elsewhere

if however you are looking for a dvd that is light on humor,and hollow on general plot.but high on anime and manga references then this is the DVD for you
