Cosplayers reenact Beyond the Boundary idol dance

Hey, remember that crazy filler episode of Beyond the Boundary where the whole crew tries to take down a monster by distracting it with an idol dance number? I seem to recall spending way more time writing about that inciden...

Heading to the ExCel Centre for MCM London Comic Con isn't all about buying pricey import goods and hearing about the latest anime titles to be licensed, no sir! As is the case with all conventions that are vaguely anime-related, cosplayers arrive in small armies for photographs and a good laugh. 

It was no surprise to see so many Attack on Titan cosplayers this time, but rest assured that the Narutos, Haruhis and elaborate furries were still out in force. You can't have a complete cosplay meetup without them, after all!

Thanks to Tomopop's Martin Siggers for being a camera wizard and securing all of the snaps in the gallery, so be sure to check it out below. You could even be super cool and follow him on Twitter!
