A talented Demon Slayer fan has shown off their incredible take on one of anime’s most interesting characters with a perfect take on Kanao Tsuyuri.

Demon Slayer has quickly become one of the most popular animes in the world following its 2019 debut, capturing the imaginations of fans worldwide with the story of Tanjiro Kamado, a young man whose family is murdered by demons, and his sister then turned into one.

Determined to get revenge on the creatures who have ruined his family, and desperate for a way to turn Nezuko back into human form, Kamado joins the Demon Slayers in an attempt to wipe them out once and for all. Along the way, he meets a host of interesting and exciting characters like Kanae and Sinobu Kocho, and their shy adopted sister Kanao Tsuyuri.

Kanao is shy, but a talented warrior who can more than hold her own in combat.

Kanao’s most recognizable personality trait is her shyness, and constantly finds herself unable to make decisions by herself, looking to her sisters to help her when the pressure is on. To help her, Kanae gave her a coin to flip, quickly becoming her trademark, allowing the universe to decide her next move. While she may be shy though, don’t be fulled into thinking she isn’t dangerous, and can more than hold her own when battle commences.

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 classic black, sporting her black hair tied into a ponytail, with a straight fringe and two strands falling either side of her face.

Cosplayer ‘miunalie’ captured the character perfectly, complete with the butterfly pin in the perfectly styled hair, and Kanao’s sword, ready to smite down any Demons who may cross her path. This incredible cosplay is so good, it looks like it was lifted straight out of the show, and is surely one of the best Demon Slayer cosplays we’ve ever seen.

Demon Slayer became a smash hit worldwide, but Ufotable has yet to announce when the second season of the anime will release, with fans left anxiously waiting for the next chapter in the story.

There is some good news for those desperate for more Demon Slayer tales, as a special movie titled “Mugen Train” will release in Japan in October 2020, which will act as a bridge between Season 1 and 2.

A My Hero Academia cosplayer has shown off her perfect take on one of the anime’s most terrifying characters, the blood-thirsty and unpredictable villain Himiko Toga. 

The ultra-popular anime made it’s stunning debut back in 2016, and has captured the hearts and imaginations of viewers across the globe as they follow the story of Izuku Midoriya, a young man learning to control his newly found superpowers as he attempts to become the number one pro hero and fight against the evil League of Villains.

Throughout his time studying at U.A. High School, Deku has many ferocious and dangerous encounters with the villainous organization, and while they may be the bad guys in this epic story, one of the antagonists has enthralled fans above anyone else, with the sinister schoolgirl Himiko Toga quickly becoming a fan favorite, and one of the most popular characters from the series to cosplay.

Himiko Toga is a vicious villain with a taste for blood.

While Himiko may not look terrifying at first glance, the young woman has a truly sinister side that matches her seemingly innocent shapeshifting quirk. To transform into someone else, Himiko needs the blood of her intended target, and make no mistake, she takes great pleasure in extracting the red liquid she needs, often carrying around a knife just on the off-chance that she encounters someone she can slice.

In fact, Toga often wears vials around her neck to collect any blood she needs, something that Instagram user ‘pinkupandaa‘ captured perfectly in her incredible cosplay, complete with the massive and scary teeth that make up part of her headgear. Her hair is styled perfectly too, sitting either side of her head in two messy buns, just like the character.

Yuka has also matched her outfit too, with a red handkerchief tied around her neck, and her classic school uniform with a beige top and navy skirt. The cosplay is so good that it looks like Himiko has just been taken out of the show and dropped into real life, making this one of the best Toga cosplays we’ve seen.

Since it’s release in 2016, My Hero Academia has become a fan-favorite across the globe, and for the first time ever, was dual broadcasted in both English and Japanese so viewers across the planet could catch all the action at the same time.
