Cosplay Cuteness Overload: 7 Finalists of Animax Ani-Mates Search

Animax Ani-Mates finalists

Seven super-cute Pinay cosplayers remain as the finalists of the Animax Ani-Mates Search to be held at the biggest anime event of the year, Animax Carnival Philippines on December 9.

There’s a lot at stake on this contest, more than just the PHP 25,000 cash prize. The winner gets to succeed Alodia as the next Animax idol and will get to be part of the anime network’s shows.

 

So who’s your bet among the 7 finalists? Over the next few days we’ll be featuring articles and photo galleries for each of them, so come back regularly for updates!

 

Here are a few photos of each of the cute Ani-Mates finalists:
