After years of waiting, it’s an NCR Qualifier winner who will represent the country — they are then called “Team Saui”

At this year’s World Cosplay Summit Philippines National Finals in Davao City held Sunday April 29, A deja vu has happened.


Team Sekai (then Team Saui, pronounced “Sa’yu ih”), the pair of Sergio Sta. Ana from Metro Manila and Kai Raito from Bacolod, will represent the country in the 2018 World Cosplay Summit which will happen at Nagoya, from July 28 to August 5.

I was able to talk to the new WCS representatives in the video below, moments after they are briefed by the Philippine committee. Here’s how it went.

For the record, I wrote a story on their win at the NCR Qualifiers held last year in Mandaluyong City.

Congratulations to the World Cosplay Summit Philippines committee for a well-done National Finals in Davao.
