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My Hero Academia originally made its debut as a manga in 2014, although it truly exploded in popularity with its anime adaption by studio Bones.

A My Hero Academia cosplayer has shown off her perfect take on one of the anime’s most terrifying characters, the blood-thirsty and unpredictable villain Himiko Toga. 

The ultra-popular anime made it’s stunning debut back in 2016, and has captured the hearts and imaginations of viewers across the globe as they follow the story of Izuku Midoriya, a young man learning to control his newly found superpowers as he attempts to become the number one pro hero and fight against the evil League of Villains.

Throughout his time studying at U.A. High School, Deku has many ferocious and dangerous encounters with the villainous organization, and while they may be the bad guys in this epic story, one of the antagonists has enthralled fans above anyone else, with the sinister schoolgirl Himiko Toga quickly becoming a fan favorite, and one of the most popular characters from the series to cosplay.

Himiko Toga is a vicious villain with a taste for blood.

While Himiko may not look terrifying at first glance, the young woman has a truly sinister side that matches her seemingly innocent shapeshifting quirk. To transform into someone else, Himiko needs the blood of her intended target, and make no mistake, she takes great pleasure in extracting the red liquid she needs, often carrying around a knife just on the off-chance that she encounters someone she can slice.

In fact, Toga often wears vials around her neck to collect any blood she needs, something that Instagram user ‘pinkupandaa‘ captured perfectly in her incredible cosplay, complete with the massive and scary teeth that make up part of her headgear. Her hair is styled perfectly too, sitting either side of her head in two messy buns, just like the character.

Yuka has also matched her outfit too, with a red handkerchief tied around her neck, and her classic school uniform with a beige top and navy skirt. The cosplay is so good that it looks like Himiko has just been taken out of the show and dropped into real life, making this one of the best Toga cosplays we’ve seen.

Since it’s release in 2016, My Hero Academia has become a fan-favorite across the globe, 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.
