Hey, my name is Karharina, but everyone calls me Yuna. I started cosplaying, about 10 years ago. I was a part of WCS 2007 and I'm a staff member behind the WCS in Germany. I wont bite, so don’t be shy, come over and have a chat!
Description in one word:
What does Japanese ”pop” culture mean to you?
Fun, friendship, love… everything really! Its a part of my life, i dont want to miss.
Your first meet with the ”J-pop” culture:
It was about 11 years ago, when I read Animania (German anime/manga magazine) for the first time, and realized what manga/anime was.
After that I went to my first convention, met new friends, started cosplaying… and here I am today!
Its like Narnia, you open the door to another world!
What do you look forward to see in Denmark?
I look forward to see how Denmark is different from Germany. Even though I know some Danish people, its still a completely different thing to actually be in the country. There are cosplayer from all over the world, and every country has its own style, I look forward to see the Danish one.
After all these years its still Sailor Moon, almost everything from Arina Tanemura and my big love is Totoro. There are of course some of the newer series I like, but some time passes by, and I begin to lose interest in them.
If you could be and anime/game character, who would you be?
Hmmm, I think it would be a combination of Bunny (Sailor Moon) and Yuna (FFX)
Is there a place you wish to be one day?
Without a doubt, the Ghibli museum!
