A Demon Slayer fan has created an incredible version of one of the anime’s most interesting characters, showing off her take on Kanao Tsuyuri that looks like it was lifted straight from the show and brought into reality.

Demon Slayer has quickly become one of the most popular animes in the world since it debuted in early 2019. It follow the story of Tanjirō Kamado, a young man who becomes a demon slayer to avenge the death of his family who are slain by the creatures, and turned his sister Nezuko into one of their kind.

Joining the demon slayers, Kamado meets a host of fellow warriors and combatants determined to rid the world of these demons. These include the likes of Kane and Sinobu Kocho, two of the most powerful slayers in the world, and their shy adopted sister Kanao Tsuyuri.

Tsuyuri is a demon slayer, and the adopted sister of the Kochos.

Fans of Demon Slayer will recognize the character for her constant indecisiveness, with her shy personality leading her to become unable to make decisions by herself, and looking to others for guidance when she didn’t know what to do. To try and help the 16-year-old make decisions, Kanae give her a coin to flip in times where she was uncertain, which has quickly become the characters trademark, flipping the coin and allowing the universe to decide her next move.

The Demon Slayer wears the characteristic robes that define those who pursue the evil creatures, originally wearing a purple version of the dress before switching to the normal black, sporting her black hair tied into a ponytail, with a straight fringe and two strands sweeping down her cheeks to her chin.

Cosplayer ‘kyumibuns’ captured the character perfectly, even wearing the same butterfly hairpin that Kanao’s sister Kanae used to wear in her hair. The same white cloak is triple knotted around her shoulders, while she even clasps the character’s trademark pink and white sword in the left hand. No Tsuyuri cosplay would be complete without her trademark coin though, which kyumi holds aloft in her right hand.

Demon Slayer originally appeared as a manga in 2016, but it wasn’t until the anime released in 2019 that it became a worldwide sensation, with millions of fans enthralled by the story adapted by studio Ufotable.

The first season may have come to an end, but there is certainly more of Tanjirō Kamado’s story to come, with a sequel film announced for later this year.

Attack on Titan’s Eren Yeager is a popular choice among cosplayers, but a recent effort re-created the character perfectly, and the pictures have gone viral. 

Attack on Titan is one of the darkest and strangest mainstream animes in recent times. However, that hasn’t stopped it from becoming an incredibly popular smash-hit. If anything, it’s probably the reason why.

Nobody ever thought they’d be into a story about human soldiers locked into a battle with over-sized human-looking monsters called Titans who eat people.

Yet, here we all are, and we’re hooked. 

Attack on Titan has many interesting characters, but it revolves around Eren Yeager, the main protagonist. He started as an impulsive and hardheaded peasant with a burning despite to help eliminate Titans.

But he quickly grew into a capable member of the Scout Regiment and even stumbled upon a special power of his own. For that reason, he’s become a fan-favorite among fans and cosplayers alike.

A cosplayer named Noah Lance decided to step into Eren Yeager’s boots. They’re massive ones to fill, but he did such a great job, the photos have gone viral. The pictures have already generated almost 10,000 likes on Instagram.

“I hate people when they’re not polite,” he said, in reference to one of Eren Yeager’s quotes from the show. “If you end up on my table, then it serves you right.”

Noah’s outfit looks like the real deal. It has everything from the khaki-colored shirt, brown belt, brown straps to a replica necklace. The dual swords are the best feature, though, and they round it off nicely.

There’s also a second shot that provides a more zoomed-out view of the boots, straps, and pants. Noah’s definitely put in a lot of attention to detail, and it shows.

“And I’m hoping that you will see yourself like I see you,” he said.

Attack on Titan can be dark and grueling at times, but it still provides endless opportunities for fans and cosplayers to shine. Noah’s Eren Yeager cosplay is a testament to that.

The fourth and final series kicks off on December 7.

It marks the beginning of the end for the show, but there’s no doubt Attack on Titan fans will be in for a roller-coaster ride along the way.
