A talented cosplayer readied for battle as Kill la Kill’s Mako Mankanshoku with her true-to-life costume. The artist’s perfect portrayal of the anime heroine is one of the best things you will ever see.

The anime world was rocked by the 2013 debut of Studio Trigger’s Kill la Kill. The show’s raucous characters and bombastic plot made it one of the medium’s most entertaining properties in years.

A cosplayer transformed into Mako Mankanshoku, the lovable sidekick to protagonist Ryuko Matoi. The artist re-created the character’s fan-favorite Fight Club look, and will leave fans in awe.

Studio Trigger’s 2013 anime has become a cult classic among anime fans.

Kill la Kill’s Mako brought to life

The story begins with Ryuko enrolling at the Honnoji Academy to seek answers after her father is assassinated. She quickly makes best friends with the overly hyper Mako, who sticks by her side through thick and thin.

Cosplayer ‘anzujaamu’ brought the sidekick to life, when she dressed up in her infamous Two-Star Goku uniform which she received as president of the Fight Club. Photographer ‘cdgenc’ captured her striking a tough pose.

The artist’s costume is full of detail, from her signature officer’s cap, to the black gold trimmed coat that hangs off her shoulders. She even included her red spiked wrist guards, as she crosses her arms and looks on menacingly.

In more photos posted to Instagram, Anzu also created the KLK character’s school uniform which consists of a white top with a light blue scarf and pleated skirt. She also nailed her short light brown bob hairstyle.

The cosplayer hilariously embodied the heroine’s quirky personality by mimicking one of her stances from the animation. She looks so much like Mankanshoku, this could easily be mistaken for a scene directly from the show itself.

In another shot posted on photographer ‘cdgenc’s account, they cleverly re-created Mako’s ridiculous rants. In the show, she bounces around the screen and makes various poses, which they depicted perfectly here.

A My Hero Academia cosplayer stunned her thousands of fans with a brilliant transformation into Rabbit Hero Miruko; the fifth-highest ranked pro hero in the series.

Rumi Usagiyamam, better known as Rabbit Hero Miruko isn’t one of My Hero Academia’s main characters. However, she’s a popular one, especially among cosplayers. She was first introduced as a silhouette in Episode 82 and finally made a full appearance in Episode 86.

Rabbit Hero Miruko is uncompromising and candid, which is what you’d expect from the fifth-highest ranked pro hero. But unlike other heroes, she doesn’t like the idea of teams. Instead, she prefers working alone and relying on her strength.

Her quirk, Rabbit, gives her the qualities and abilities of a rabbit, including incredible leg strength, excellent hearing, and a knack for sensing danger. Her kicks are so strong, they can shatter entire buildings.

My Hero Academia’s Rabbit Hero Miruko is tough as nails.

A cosplayer named Sachi stunned her fans with one of the best Rabbit Hero Miruko cosplays we’ve ever seen. It captured every little detail of her hero costume, from the sleeveless white and purple leotard with a crescent moon on her chest to the metal plates above her hips and purple boots. 

She also didn’t forget about the long-flowing white hair trademark bunny ears, which are equally important.

“PRO HERO NO.5: Rabbit Hero Miruko!” she wrote. “Your fave rabbit girl is here to save the day! Who’s your favorite pro hero?

You’ll see fans describe it as gorgeous, perfect, and stunning in the comments, and they are right on the money. It’s not the first time Sachi has made headlines with her quality cosplays, and it won’t be the last. 

All in all, it’s about as close as you can get to seeing the real thing. The photography from topherblev was top-notch, too. It helped Sachi’s already awesome cosplay look even better.
