The program will also make use of cinemagraphs. These are hybrid video clips created from still pictures. Most of the still picture is kept stationary while a section moves in a continuous loop.

In addition, “Cosplay JAPAN” will feature the latest merchandise related to cosplayers, makeup, cosplay spots, and so on in a ranking format.
