Marin Kitagawa Halloween Costume

Rizu-kyun Cosplay

Marin is flamboyant, messy, and despite being quite mature, she's also clumsy. A cosplayer and huge otaku, Marin is a huge fan of Magical Girl anime and adult video games. She has a strong desire to play certain characters and sees the idea of dressing up and becoming those characters as the ultimate form of love for her.

Marin's love for the characters she likes goes to the point where she stops cosplaying them the way she wants when she feels like she can't keep up with her looks because of her image don't want to damage.

Marin Kitagawa Cosplay


She is particularly nice, friendly, cheerful and outgoing. Marin is shown to have a strong dislike of overly critical people who judge others based on their interests, leading her to turn down advances from a boy early in the series who poked fun at her liking anime. Marin's non-judgmental attitude and kind nature lead her to admire Wakana greatly, despite the boy's perceived awkwardness and calmness by others. Seeing no reason to keep their newfound friendship and a secret, she greeted him openly in the school hallways and later invited him to a ramen restaurant.

Marin has her own values and despite her cheerful and easy-going nature, she can take them seriously. For example, she easily saw Wakana being taken advantage of by his classmates and told him not to put up with it.

Although Marin possesses a mature side, she can get a bit confused at times. She poorly knitted a prototype of her first cosplay outfit, despite having step-by-step instructions. She's also a procrastinator, often watching anime at work and completely losing track of time. Still, she can be surprisingly proactive when things are important to her, like finding out where Wakana lived so they can start their first cosplay project right away instead of waiting over the weekend. Marin claims that when she has an idea, she wastes no time and gets straight to the point, revealing her hasty and impulsive side.

Marin proves to be very brave as she had no problem allowing Wakana to take her measurements for her first cosplay outfit and she did so in a swimsuit despite being early in their friendship. She is shown to have a more teasing side, sometimes cracking jokes at Wakana's expense and laughing when he gets embarrassed and nervous. However, these moments can also be embarrassing for Marin, especially when she begins to realize her own feelings for him.

Although Marin is carefree, she is not inconsiderate towards others, quite the opposite. After seeing Wakana exhaust herself to get her Shizuku-tan outfit finished and fully stitched; a result of not knowing when to get the outfit ready. She broke down with remorse and tearfully apologized to him after realizing that he had worked his way to the bone for her while attending to his own duties, studying for midterms, juggling his grandfather's Hina doll shop and was supervising visits when he injured his back.

She has a habit of being ashamed of seemingly insignificant things while ignoring or not caring about far more humiliating factors. When a photographer snapped a photo of Suzuka as Shizuku during the cosplay event with the wind blowing up her skirt and showing off her boxer shorts, Marin was more concerned that she wasn't looking at the camera and actually apologized for it, that she had taken an indecent photo of Suzuka herself and said she would delete it. Marin hastily welcomed Wakana into her apartment and was surprised and embarrassed to find that she wasn't wearing her pink contacts, but was still in her sleepwear and baring most of her top half.

Marin also enjoys eating, but still manages to maintain her slim figure until later in Chapter 64. She is also not a very good cook, as her meals are often greasy and contain large amounts of meat and rice.
