[Cosplay&More] – Resident Evil, Jill Valentine by Narga

Resident Evil

Resident Evil, known as Biohazard (バイオハザード Baiohazādo) in Japan, is a survival horror video game-based media franchise created by Shinji Mikami and Tokuro Fujiwara[1][2] and owned by the video game company Capcom. The franchise focuses around a series of survival horror video games, but has since branched out into comic books, novels, novelizations, sound dramas, live-action filmsanimated sequels to the games, and a variety of associated merchandise, such as action figures. The series’ overarching plot focuses on multiple characters, and their roles in recurring outbreaks of zombies and other monsters, initially due to the release of the T-virus, but still more biological weapons over time, created mainly by the fictional Umbrella Corporation and various other organizations in later games.

The eponymous first game in the series was released in 1996 as a survival horror video game, but the franchise has since grown to encompass other video game genres. The series is a mix of action and horror film-inspired plotlines, exploration, and puzzle solving. It is Capcom’s biggest franchise in terms of software sales, with over 77 million units sold worldwide (as of March 31, 2017).[3]

Jill Valentine

Jill Valentine (Japaneseジル・バレンタイン HepburnJiru Barentain) is a character in the Resident Evil (Biohazard in Japan) horror franchise by Capcom. A special-operations agent, she made her debut appearance in 1996 as one of the protagonists of the original Resident Evil game, in which she and fellow STARSmember Chris Redfield are trapped in a mysterious mansion. Jill is featured in several Resident Evil games including Resident Evil 3: NemesisResident Evil: The Umbrella ChroniclesResident Evil 5 and Resident Evil: Revelations, where she is in conflict with the Umbrella Corporation and its splinter groups. She is also a founding member and key field operative of the paramilitary organization BSAA.

Shinji Mikami, the director of the original Resident Evil game, said that he was opposed to the frequent sexual objectification of women in video games and instead preferred to make strong, independent female characters. Jill’s facial and physical appearance from the 2002 remake of Resident Evil onwards is based on model and actress Julia Voth. The film series’ version of Jill is portrayed by Sienna Guillory and based on the game character’s various incarnations. She was introduced as a co-protagonist in Resident Evil: Apocalypse, made a brief appearance in Resident Evil: Afterlife, and returned as the main antagonist of Resident Evil: Retribution.

Described as “a classic example” of a female horror-game character, Jill has received favorable critical reception and featured on many top character lists. She is widely regarded as one of the most attractive female protagonists in video games, though various appearances and portrayals of her have been considered to be over sexualized and to conform to gender stereotypes. Jill has sparked two video game Internet memes and has been used in various Resident Evil merchandise.

Dragon Ball

Dragon Ball (Japanese: ドラゴンボール Hepburn: Doragon Bōru?) is a Japanese manga series written and illustrated by Akira Toriyama. It was originally serialized in Weekly Shōnen Jump from 1984 to 1995, with the 519 individual chapters published into 42 tankōbon volumes by Shueisha. Dragon Ball was initially inspired by the classical Chinese novel Journey to the West. The series follows the adventures of the protagonist, Son Goku, from his childhood through adulthood as he trains in martial arts and explores the world in search of the seven orbs known as the Dragon Balls, which summon a wish-granting dragon when gathered. Along his journey, Goku makes several friends and battles a wide variety of villains, many of whom also seek the Dragon Balls.

The Dragon Ball manga‘s 42 tankōbon have been adapted into two anime series produced by Toei Animation: Dragon Ball and Dragon Ball Z, which together were broadcast in Japan from 1986 to 1996. Additionally, the studio has developed nineteen animated feature films and three television specials, as well as two anime sequel series titled Dragon Ball GT (1996-1997) and Dragon Ball Super (2015-present). From 2009 to 2015, a revised, faster-paced version of Dragon Ball Z aired in Japan under the title Dragon Ball Kai, in which most of the original version’s footage not featured in the manga is removed. Several companies have developed various types of merchandising based on the series leading to a large media franchise that includes films, both animated and live-action, collectible trading card games, numerous action figures, along with several collections of soundtracks and a large number of video games.

The manga series was licensed for an English-language release in North America by Viz Media, in the United Kingdom by Gollancz Manga, and Australia and New Zealand by Madman Entertainment. The entire anime series was licensed by Funimation for an English-language release in the United States, although the series has not always been dubbed by the same studio. There have been many films of the franchise including the first live-action film adaptation being produced in 1989 in Taiwan. In 2002, 20th Century Fox acquired the rights to produce an American-made live-action film titled Dragonball Evolution that was received negatively by critics and fans; the movie was released on April 10, 2009 in the United States.

Since its release, Dragon Ball has become one of the most successful manga and anime series of all time. The manga’s 42 volumes have sold over 156 million copies in Japan and more than 240 million copies worldwide, making it the third best-selling manga series in history. Reviewers have praised the art, characterization, and humor of the story. It is widely regarded as one of the greatest manga series ever made, with many manga artists such as Eiichiro Oda (One Piece), Masashi Kishimoto (Naruto), Tite Kubo (Bleach), Hiro Mashima (Rave Master, Fairy Tail), Kentaro Yabuki (Black Cat) and ONE (One-Punch Man) citing Dragon Ball as a source of inspiration for their own now popular works. The anime, particularly Dragon Ball Z, is also highly popular in various countries and was arguably one of the most influential in boosting the popularity of Japanese animation in Western culture.
