My Hero Academia’s Nejire Hado was brought to life by a cosplayer’s mind-blowing costume. The artist used special effects to blast waves as The Big 3 heroine. 

Very few series have had the impact that My Hero Academia has had since its 2016 debut. The cultural phenomena has hooked viewers around the world with its story about a high-school that trains teenagers with abilities called ‘quirks.’

A cosplayer re-created student Nejire Hado’s superpowers using special effects, and it’s one of the best takes on the character we’ve ever seen. The artist’s accurate depiction will leave fans seeing double.

The 2016 hero anime has exploded in popularity since its debut.

Students in the popular anime attend U.A. High – one of the premiere schools that focuses on training the next generation of heroes. At the top of her peers, Nejire is considered one of The Big 3 at the institution.

Cosplayer ‘nori_boop‘ dressed up as the MHA character, and teamed up with photographer ‘teshibu‘ to show off her take on Hado’s hero costume, which consists of a blue bodysuit with mint green spirals around her arms and boots.

The artist nailed the heroine’s iconic periwinkle hairstyle, capturing her side-swept bangs and spiral horns which raise up from behind her ears. ‘Rolecosplaycostume‘ supplied the cosplayer with the detailed wig.

In the story, Nejire’s quirk is called Wave Motion, and allows the student to convert her vitality into powerful blasts of energy. Her shockwave attacks come out in the shape of spiral formations.

Re-creating a scene from the anime, Nori strikes the heroine’s signature fighting stance. Using special effects, the wave particles begin to form from her yellow gauntlets.

Nori also cleverly simulated Nejire’s flying ability, which she achieves by releasing her energy from her feet. Using amazing editing, the cosplayer truly looks like the Class 3-A heroine floating in the air.

Dragon Ball Super fans furious as new manga chapter rehashes Cell Games

Dragon Ball fans who have been watching the anime and reading the manga for years were furious after a preview for Chapter 65 showed protagonist Goku making the same mistake he made in the Cell Games years ago.

The Dragon Ball Super manga has been doing its own thing with the anime on hiatus and the Broly movie now a distant memory. Notably, Toyotarou, has taken over as the official artist for Super working with series creator Akira Toriyama.

While the newest arc has been relatively well-received by fans with its new villain, Moro, proving to be quite the adversary, the previews for Chapter 65 have left fans furious.

With Goku now able to tap into his most powerful form in Ultra Instinct on a whim thanks to the sacrifice of his mentor Merus, the Saiyan began dominating the arc’s nemesis.

However, with Moro on the ropes, Goku has repeated a major mistake he made during the Cell Games in Dragon Ball Z – giving the villain a Senzu Bean and healing him. This time, it was under the condition that Moro would turn himself into the Galactic Patrol.

According to translator Dragon Ball Hype, after taking the bean, Moro rushes towards Goku with the intent of killing him.

This is a bit of a retread of the Cell Games where, after retiring from his fight against Cell, Goku gave the android a Senzu Bean to recover before he fought his son, Gohan.

The fact that Goku has made this mistake again and that Toyotarou even wrote the story like this has many fans scratching their heads.

Notable Dragon Ball YouTuber Geekdom101 noted that while he had advised fans to normally wait until the rest of a chapter before passing judgment, this mistake was inexcusable.

“After thinking it over, there’s absolutely no excusing that decision. It’s stupid and illogical and the development is on a hamster wheel. Same old sh*t,” he wrote.

Others are even quitting the series. “I’m officially done with Dragon Ball Super,” a now former fan wrote.

“This arc is ruined now!” another angry fan remarked.

It’s always possible that Toyotarou has thrown fans for a loop and this is all part of some big twist, but for the time being, even the most loyal of Dragon Ball supporters seem to be put off by these story decisions.
