Another cosplayer from the Philippines, Kami No Ryoiki, took home the Natsuki Hanae’s Award for his Isaac Netero cosplay from the anime, Hunter x Hunter.

Ryoiki received the special prize from esteemed voice actor and judge Natsuki Hanae who praised the Filipino cosplayer’s use of recycled materials for the costume.
