My Hero Academia Season 4 is now complete, and one of the biggest surprises in the latest chapter of the anime was the appearance of Rumi Usagiyama, who was introduced to the show for the first time during the final arc of the season. Now, a fan of the anime has shown off her take on the rabbit hero, unveiling an incredible version of the character.

My Hero Academia has dominated the anime world since its release in 2016, with fans following the story of Izuku Midoriya as he learns to control the legendary quirk known as ‘One For All’ while he attends U.A. High School to train and study to become a professional hero, and the new symbol of peace, just like his idol All Might.

Ana absolutely captured the character perfectly, showing off her sleeveless white and purple leotard, complete with the moon crescent logo that is featured on her chest, and the same white gloves the character often wears when heading into battle.

The cosplayer even revealed that she had to dye the boots herself to make sure they looked exactly right, admitting that she was really happy with them and said that the extra effort definitely “paid off,” something we definitely agree with!

Since it’s release in 2016, My Hero Academia has stolen the hearts of anime fans worldwide, 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.

While the Japanese version of the season is now complete, the English-dubbed edition fell behind in late March, with new episodes now releasing again weekly as the fourth chapter comes to a close.

Attack on Titan Season 4 is just around the corner, and a talented fan of the show has shown off their incredible take on the Survey Corps’ Mikasa Ackerman, bringing the character to life in stunning detail.

Since its debut back in 2013, fans across the globe have been enamored with the story of Eren Yeager and Mikasa, who become refugees when one of the giant humanoid creatures known as Titans breached the walls that protected humanity and killed Eren’s mother.

Determined to destroy the creatures who killed his family, Eren vowed to join the Scout Regiment and head out beyond the walls to kill every Titan he saw, and free humanity from the threat for good. Mikasa, who made a vow as a child to protect him always after he saved her life, quickly followed him, and the inseparable pair joined the war together.

Talented with a sword in her hand, and an expert at swinging through towns or forests using her ODM gear, Mikasa is one of the most feared and dangerous members of the Scouts. Despite her personality sometimes leading others to think she is cold or standoffish, Mikasa is a true fan-favorite, thanks to her incredible skill and her undying love for Eren. She’s so popular in fact, that she has become the most cosplayed character from the series.

Mikasa is one of the most powerful characters in the popular anime.

Cosplayer ‘jeisuzukii‘ brought the character to life in stunning detail, capturing the Scout’s black hair perfectly, and making sure to wear the iconic red scarf that she is rarely seen without, and has become a staple of any good Mikasa cosplay.

She is also wearing the recognizable brown leather jacket that anyone who is part of the Survey Corps wears, complete with the Scouts’ recognizable logo, a pair of white and blue wings known as the ‘Wings of Freedom,’ a symbol of hope that they make escape the tyranny of the Titans.

The cosplay is truly stunning and looks like it was lifted straight out of the anime. If a live-action Attack on Titan was ever commissioned, it would be no surprise if it looked exactly like this.

Attack on Titan’s third season ended with a blockbuster revelation about the origin of the Titans and the war that the Scouts have waged for hundreds of years, leaving fans desperately waiting for the final season of the show.

The good news is that the fourth season of the anime is still set in fall 2020, with the teaser trailer released in late May.
