Demon Slayer is one of the most popular anime in the world, and a fan of the show has shown their appreciation for Mitsuri Kanroji with an incredible cosplay of the character.

It’s hard to think of an anime that has captured the worldwide audience quite like Demon Slayer, which burst onto the scene in 2019 when its first series released, with fans enamored with its dark themes and compelling characters and storylines.

The series follows Tanjiro Kamado, who vows to avenge his family who were brutally killed by a gang of demons, who then turned his sister into one of the devastating creatures. Desperate to find a cure for Nezuko and return her to human form, Tanjiro becomes a Demon Slayer and enlists the help of these fearsome warriors like Mitsui Kanroji as he attempts to save his sister and get revenge on the dangerous monsters that devastated his family.

The “pillars” in the anime are the most powerful members of Demon Slayer Corps.

While searching for help for his sister, the young man enrolls in the Demon Corps, a group of the world’s most powerful warriors who are determined to save the planet and all humanity from the evil that wreaks havoc. Among the corps are the Pillars, those classed as the strongest swordsmen known to man, and on their travels, the siblings eventually come across Mitsuri Kanroji, who is known as the Love Pillar.

Instagram user ‘wrtryhard’ is clearly a fan of the character, showing off her incredible take on the character, captured in such stunning detail that it looks like it was lifted straight off the screen and brought into real life.

Wrtryhard is wearing the same pink and green hair that the character has in the anime, braided into two plaits that fall down across his shoulders. Her costume is also a faithful recreation, complete with her white kimono and black Demon Corps dress. She even has the character’s vibrant green eyes, adding another level of detail to this incredible cosplay.

Demon Slayer may have become a worldwide phenomenon in 2019 with the release of the anime series, but originally started life as a manga in 2016.

With fans eager for more stories from the tale of Tanjiro and Nekuzo, the good news is that there are plans for a sequel film to be released later on in 2020.

A My Hero Academia cosplayer made waves on Instagram after creating the perfect depiction of hot-headed character Katsuki Bakugou. The artist’s explosive take on the protagonist will have fans feeling the heat.

Few animes transcend the level of popularity that My Hero Academia has. Its story about a high school that trains teenagers with superpowers called quirks has become an absolute worldwide phenomenon.

A cosplayer celebrated the franchise by sharing their true-to-life take on popular character Katsuki Bakugou. The artist looks so much like him, it’s almost as if the fiery student has burned his way out of the screen.

My Hero Academia cosplayer’s perfect Bakugou

While most of the anime centers on main protagonist Izuku Midoriya, the series quickly introduces a diverse cast once the character enrolls at U.A High. One of those is his childhood friend and rival Bakugou. 

Cosplayer Soph ‘sophieriiis’ went viral on Instagram after sharing their mind-blowing transformation into the hot-headed Katsuki. The artist brought the student’s explosive quirk to life with the help of photographer ‘jacob.cr2‘, who captured them posing with flames shooting from their hands.

In the series, Bakugou is able to store up sweat into his grenade shaped wrist guards, which Sophie has faithfully portrayed with life-size props. The artist also perfectly mirrored the hero’s large metal knee pads and neck brace which he uses to protect himself from explosions.
