6 Politicians Who Have Done Cosplay

Takaaki Mitsuhashi, a Japanese economic analyst who ran for the country’s House of Councillors in 2010, threw a cosplay party at the Liberal Democratic Party’s Tokyo headquarters as part of his campaign. Over 200 people showed up, with Mitsuhashi himself dressed as as Gendo from anime Neon Genesis Evangelion. Ironically, LDP had the most anti-anime stance at the time, even trying to pass a bill that would ban Neon Genesis Evangelion due to alleged “child porn”.
