Weird cosplay: AKB48 meets AK-47

Weird cosplay: AKB48 meets AK-47

TOKYO —

What could be better than seeing a cute girl dressing as a member of AKB48 and dancing around in a uniform? A cute girl dressing as an AKB48 member firing military-grade weapons, apparently.

The following video comes from Hyper Douraku, a Japanese gun enthusiast website that has teamed up with otaku favorite and “image” DVD (footage of girls in skimpy outfits in various poses) star Mii Aihara.

Dressed in a variety of hugely impractical outfits from AKB48 to “Resident Evil’s” Jill Valentine, Mii heads down to the firing range to squeeze off a few rounds as part of the website’s “Guam Shooting Tour 2012.”

Why? We have no idea. 

That Mii girl clearly knows a thing or two about guns. As well as loading her own ammo before trying out the rifle, she manages to fire round after round without blinking an eye. To look at her you’d think butter wouldn’t melt in her mouth, but she’s clearly trained any ready to take on the world at a moment’s notice.

Quite what the other visitors to the firing range thought when they spotted this girl in her elaborate outfits is anyone’s guess, but we’re fairly sure that few gun fans are used to sights quite like this.

But the website isn’t just about skimpy outfits, no, no! There are some genuine gun-related tips to be found here, too.

Perhaps concerned for Mii’s safety in the evening, the team provided the model with a handgun to go with her nightdress. Quite why she’d need to kill silently, we have no idea, but this led the team to wonder “Could a pillow be used as a makeshift silencer?”

Finally, Mii took the time to leave a few words for her fans, thanking them for visiting the site and taking the virtual tour of Guam with her.

“I had a great time,” she says. “If any of you ever find yourselves in Guam, you should definitely include a trip to fire off a few live rounds in your schedule!”

A perfectly normal, everyday sentence if we ever read on.

    Hmm, this from the same girls that just a few days ago were crying because they saw a violent movie. Yeah that makes a lot of sense.

    This is something I'd expect America to. Still, cute girls with big guns is pretty nice.

    .

    Why, do you think America is a big manufacture of the AK-47?

    Russia is the source of the AK-47, not America, which popularize the M-16 and M-4 Assault Rifle.

    back to the article. If this is Hyper Douraku's way of arming and training Otakus to use a gun and prepare to defend for an invasion, I have nothing to say about that.

    Is that a real firearm, anyway? The blowback seem real, but Airsoft guns nowadays have quite a realistic feel to it, especially those Green Gas/ CO2 powered an those AEG made by Japanese manufacturers. Model Guns also have a lot of kick to them as well.

    Since real firearms are illegal, I'm assuming.... or that they filmed it outside Japan.

    AKB48's creative promoting team has run out of decent ideas. The few chosen members are going further into solo projects. As the end of AKB48 nears, i look forward to the next J-pop culture wave to wash away what they leave behind.

    Nothing to do with AKB. Just some gun nuts and a "tarento".

    Not that weird, so very entirely feasible, and hardly unthinkable.

    Why? We have no idea.

    Try harder. I'm pretty sure I've seen a similar concept elsewhere.

    Read the article first. It is a girl dressing like AKB not an AKB member. Heck, there are probably chicks who dress like AKB in porn movies.

    This is where John Lennon can say easily.. Happiness is a warm gun, anyway, the weapon is not a real one, this one is used to shot paint balls or little balls just to stun (and send some eyes to history), according to Kotaku article...

    That's easy. NOT seeing a cute girl dressing as a member of AKB48 and dancing around in a uniform.

    Actually, AK series of assault rifles were invented by M.T. Kalashnikov for Armed Forces, not drug dealers or war lords. And there is nothing "strange", "sad" or "weird" that young Japanese girl knows how to operate the rifle.

    For those that think the gun is fake, judging from this video:

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hRXn3hYYVyU&feature=relmfu

    Which actually shows the target... they are not.
