Attack on Titan continues to be one of the world’s most popular anime, and a fan of the series has shown their appreciation for one of the story’s main characters, the talented Scout Mikasa Ackerman.

Attack on Titan follows the explosive story of Eren Yaeger, a young man who lives inside the walls of the Shiganshina District with Mikasa Ackerman, as they attempt to survive as giant humanoid creatures known as Titans decimate the human race, and destroy the walls in an attempt to wipe out all who live inside their safety.

Following the death of Eren’s mother, both decided to join the Scout regiment, with Eren determined to put an end to the Titans and lead humanity out of the walls, while Ackerman just wants to ensure Eren’s safety. While Eren’s incredible abilities see him become one of mankind’s greatest weapons against the creatures, Mikasa quickly cemented herself as the most naturally gifted soldier among the Scout’s ranks, and became a fan-favorite in the process.

Mikasa and Eren have been friends since childhood.

While Mikasa may appear cold or intimidating to her fellow Scouts, the character has become a fan-favorite with viewers across the world, as her undying love for Eren sees her risk life and limb in her efforts to protect him at all times, using her incredible ability with her Omni-directional movement gear and blades to soar above the massive Titans and slice them down to earth with ease.

Cosplayer ‘adelina_cosplay‘ is clearly a fan of the character, showing off her perfect recreation of the Scout, complete with the ODM gear that allows her to zip from building to building, and the swords she uses to slice the nape of Titans. Mikasa’s red scarf is draped around her neck as always, and her brown leather jacket features the Scout regiments logo, the instantly recognizable ‘Wings of Freedom.’

Attack on Titan’s third season ended in a blockbuster revelation about the origin of the Titans and the war that the Scouts have waged for hundreds of years, leaving fans desperately waiting for the final season of the show.

The good news is that the fourth season of the anime will arrive on time in Fall 2020, with the teaser trailer released in late May.


My Hero Academia cosplayer hits a Comet Home Run as Ochaco Uraraka

Ochaco Uraraka is one of the most charming characters in My Hero Academia, but even though she’s a popular pick in the cosplay community, it’s hard to find an outfit that looks as awesome as this one.

Ochaco Uraraka was first introduced in the third episode of My Hero Academia, and fans have loved her ever since. Generally, she’s upbeat, positive, laid-back, and a little air-headed at times.

However, she can be extremely determined and focused at times, and hates being underestimated. Plus, she has an incredible quirk known as ‘Zero Gravity.’ It lets her make specific targets immune to the effects of gravity and can be used in a variety of ways. 

Uraraka is a favorite among fans due to her sweet personality.

Ochaco’s hero costume is made up of a black bodysuit with a pink design down the middle. It also has two black circles on her chest, a black rectangle below her waist, and two pink patches over her shoulders. She also wears pink armbands, a choker, a belt, wrist guards, and knee-high boots.

It’s one of the most iconic hero costumes in the show, and cosplayers love re-creating it as authentically as they can. However, a cosplayer named honeyrabbiit brought it to life in the most incredible way.

The picture of honeyrabbiit’s cosplay has already generated more than 20,000 likes, which is insane. The numbers keep on rising. She also made it herself, except for the wig, which was made by bep.cosplays.

In fact, it was so well-received, she posed in it again alongside bep.cosplays, who also happened to be wearing an awesome Katsuki Bakugo costume. “All I remember is that I was freezing and I took a hot bath after this shoot,” she said.

The second picture also has pulled more than 10,000 likes. It seems like My Hero Academia fans know an incredible cosplay when they see it, and won’t hesitate to pour in with support.

Of course, the epic photography from arcane_shutter in both shots was a nice touch, too. If we’ve learned anything from the show, it’s that a team effort can go a long way. The success of this honeyrabbiit’s cosplay is a good example of that.
