An awesome My Hero Academia cosplayer has created an incredible female twist on My Hero Academia’s most iconic character, Izuku Midoriya. 

In a world where people are blessed with superpowers, young Izuku Midoriya is born quirk-less but still dreams of becoming a professional hero and saving civilians. A chance encounter with his idol All-Might turns his dream into reality, with the number one hero bestowing the legendary power of One For All on the young man, hoping he’ll take his place as the new Symbol of Peace.

Of course, gaining superpowers as a teenager leads to plenty of issues, and with villains trying to wipe out the pro heroes for good, Izuku has to attempt to learn how to harness his new abilities while under constant threat, all while attending U.A. High School at the same time.

While Deku may be smaller than his fellow classmates and certainly lacks their control and confidence when using his quirk, his heart and determination have made him and the show unbelievably popular, making him one of anime’s most recognizable characters.

Cosplayer ‘muat0ri’ shared her take on the iconic character, putting an incredible female twist on the character, with Deku’s green hair falling down across her shoulders.

While it may be a gender-swapped version of Izuku, it’s instantly recognizable, complete with metal mask hanging around her neck, white gloves with green accents around the wrist, and the green bodysuit that he wears when heading into battle or sports events at U.A. High.

My Hero Academia originally made its debut as a manga in 2014, although it truly exploded in popularity with its anime adaption by studio Bones.

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.

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.
