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.

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.

Katara is an incredibly popular character in Avatar: The Last Airbender, but while most cosplayers dress up in her traditional outfit, one decided to spice things up with a Fire Nation twist.

Avatar: The Last Airbender is special because all the characters have remarkable depth and growth as the plot moves forward. However, Katara already shows signs of remarkable maturity in the first episode, and it develops even more as the plot moves forward.

Katara has her ups and downs like anyone else, but the cool, calm, and collected water bender is the cornerstone of Team Avatar. Her influence and guidance play a pivotal role in helping Aang achieve his destiny.

But although she starts as a supportive member of the team, Katara becomes an incredibly powerful water bender and combatant. She even manages to match the almighty Princess Azula.

Katara is a popular choice among Avatar: The Last Airbender cosplayers. Most of them dress up in her traditional water bender attire. However, now and then, you’ll see a cosplayer slip into the Fire Nation outfit she wore early on in Season 3.

Natascha, better known as smolplumeria on Instagram, is one of those people. She looked amazing from head to toe. “Ok, but can y’all hear me crying over this photo? I love it so much,” she said.

Natascha had the layered red sarong with crimson seams down pat. The gold bangles and bracelet and even the sandals were on point too. However, the highlight has to be her perfectly-styled hair and aqua-blue eyes.

In the comments section, Natascha’s fans described it as everything from “adorable” and “badass” to “beautiful” and an “absolute masterpiece.” The praise is well-deserved, considering she looked exactly like Fire Nation Katara.

The photography from youredoinggreatpictures was out of this world too. Plus, the splash of water from her friend and fellow cosplayer Nina was a nice touch. A second close-up shot shows how amazing Natascha looked.

Katara is an amazing character to cosplay regardless of the outfit. But there’s something special about seeing cosplayers bring her to life in the Fire Nation outfit. It has a different and more elegant look.

All in all, Natascha and her team did a wonderful job. Avatar: The Last Airbender fans who haven’t seen it yet are in for a treat. Hopefully, the positive feedback keeps on coming, and we’ll see her dress up as some other characters too.
