Demon Slayer has quickly become one of the most popular anime series in the world, and one fan has shown off their love for one of the show’s most talented warriors with an incredible cosplay of Mitsuri Kanroji.

Few animes have exploded into worldwide popularity quite like Demon Slayer, which became a hit across the globe following the release of its first season in 2019, as fans became enthralled with the series’ dark themes and interesting characters.

The series follows the story of Tanjiro Kamado, a young boy determined to avenge the brutal murders of his family by a gang of demons who then turned his sister into one of the fearsome creatures. Desperate to find a cure for Nezuko and bring her back to human form, he becomes a member of the Demon Corps, and in his quest to save his sister, meets the organization’s Pillars powerful warriors who kill demons including the popular Love Pillar Mitsuri Kanroji.

In the Demon Corps, the strongest and most skillful warriors are known as Pillars, each with their own unique title, look and abilities. Despite regularly slaying the creatures with her trusted sword, Mitsuri Kanroji is known as the Love Pillar, and with her incredibly kind nature mixed with her steely determination to kill the evil creatures, it’s no surprise that many viewers immediately became fans of the character.

Instagram user ‘quick_kiwi’ is clearly a massive fan of the character, showing off her perfect take on Demon Slayer‘s Love Pillar with an incredible cosplay which brings Mitsuri Kanroji to life in stunning detail, so good that it looks like the character was lifted out of the anime and into real life.

Quick_Kiwi can be seen wearing a perfect green and pink wig, styled just like the character’s own hair that is braided into two plaits than fall either side of her face and down her torso. Her costume is just as accurate, complete with her black Demon Corps dress, her green socks, and even her pink sandals, while her trusty sword lies beside her, ready to slay any demons who come too close.

Even the moles under Mitsuri’s eyes have been included, showing the incredible attention to detail that makes this cosplay so good.

While Demon Slayer became a smash hit worldwide, Ufotable has yet to announce when the second season of the anime will release, as fans anxiously wait 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 went viral on social media after giving Fat Gum a new look. The artist’s take on Taishiro Toyomitsu will take fans’ breath away.

My Hero Academia has become a cultural phenomena since its debut in 2016. Viewers around the world can’t get enough of its story about a high school that trains teenagers with powers called quirks.

One of the more unique characters in the series is Fat Gum. The character can absorb anything into his own body fat. Prolific cosplayer Sarah ‘HendoArt’ Hendo captured the hero’s incredibly epic Season 4 look with a twist.

My Hero Academia cosplayer’s Fat Gum female twist

While in most of the series, Fat Gum is large, the character can burn off his weight when absorbing powers from foes. In the Season 4 episode Red Riot, the pro hero sheds his fat and becomes ripped after defeating Hekiji and Kendo.

Cosplayer HendoArt captured his new look with an insanely accurate costume which she posted on Twitter on October 13. Referencing the epic battle, the artist captioned her pictures with “Are you the spear or the shield?”

Sarah absolutely nailed the character’s costume, perfectly re-creating his black mask and signature yellow and white jacket which has the letters FG written across it. She even created his orange gloves with metal studs on each knuckle.

Her faithful re-creation of Taishiro Toyomitsu is full of details, such as the torn black shirt which the pro hero ripped after burning off all his body fat. Just like in the series, she also has her yellow hoodie up.

In another shot posted to Instagram, the cosplayer posed as the BMI hero in a selfie. In this shot, the artist took off her mask which the character briefly does in My Hero Academia after sustaining heavy damage. 

This is easily one of the best takes we’ve seen on the hero. Hendo accurately captured the character’s epic transformation after his battle with the Shield and Spear.
