This past weekend was a big deal for anime fans on both hemispheres. In Tokyo, Comiket 92 attracted a half-million otaku, ready to spend their hard earned money on toys and fanmade comics. While in our nation's capital, the Otakon 2017 convention was once again one of the biggest anime gatherings in the country.

So in the spirit of competitition , we're pitting the two nations' cosplayers against each other. Now it's time for YOU to arbitrarily judge who does the most creative, funny, or slightly horny interpretations of the characters we all know and love. Who will win, God's own U.S. of A. or glorious Nippon!?
