National Taiwan University is the country's most prestigious institute of higher learning. The country's first Nobel prize laureate is an alum. It's where the best of the best get educated.

And four times a year, the elite university is crawling with cosplayers.

The two-day Petite Fancy expo attracts over 40,000 visitors, keen to check out a plethora of anime goods on sale at the show. And where there are anime goods, there are anime nerds. And where there are anime nerds, there are cosplayers.

Where there are cosplayers, there are photo galleries like this.

This year, a trio of well-known Japanese cosplayers—Necoco, Pude, and Ushijima Good Meat—put in an appearance, joining the numerous Taiwanese cospalyers.

Hey, Ashcraft (goodness I'm tempted to yell out ASH KETCHUM about now), I feel like I've asked this before when you've shown stuff about Madoka, but I don't think you've ever said anything back then, so I guess I'll kinda ask again: are you personally a fan of the show? This certainly isn't the first time where you had Madoka cosplay as the first image in these cosplay articles.... surely there are some gaming-related cosplay among the batch of photos you've drawn up, right? Or is the spotlight on Madoka mainly done because that is the property that might garner the most hits when skimming through the main site? Whatever the reasoning, kudos to you for continuing the coverage.

Oh, and might I add: HELL YES OKTAVIA COSPLAY AT #21. In sheer grandeur and aesthetics alone, she's one of my favorite witches in the entire series, but I've only seen a few scant photos of cosplay of the character. In fact, I think I've seen this specific cosplayer in another forum, since the costume looks exactly the same (the cosplayers for her are a rarity!). Definitely puffier than I'd prefer, but it's understandable, since it's definitely not an easy costume to pull off "completely" right.
