The latest My Hero Academia movie, titled Heroes Rising, is about to release and one fan of the anime has decided to show their excitement for the launch of the film by giving us a look at her incredible take on Camie Utsushumi.

My Hero Academia is one of the most popular animes in the world, and while the show is currently in the middle of its fourth season, fans can also watch a brand-new movie stacked full with all their favorite characters, as Izuku Midorya and Class 1-A save a group of islanders from a powerful villain in the feature-length film Heroes Rising.

While the anime mainly focuses on Midorya, a young man born without a superpower who gains the mythical quirk known as One For All from his hero All-Might, plenty of side characters have appeared and captured the imaginations of viewers around the world, and perhaps none are cosplayed as often as Camie Utsushumi.

Camie quickly became a fan favorite since debuting in Season 3.

In Season 3, Class 1-A are introduced to prospective heroes from other schools like Shiketsu High, as they try to earn Provisional Licenses so they can go out and hone their skills in the real world with some of the greatest heroes in the world. This is the first time that Camie Utsushimi is introduced to the show, and the character instantly became a fan favorite thanks to her bubbly and laid back nature.

Cosplayer ‘Scarlet_s2.0’ is the latest to try their hand at a cosplay of the character, and few have been able to match the character as well as she has, wearing a black bodysuit that is identical to Camie’s complete with the same white cuffs she wears around her wrists as part of her striking and instantly recognizable look.

Attention to detail is always important in a truly brilliant cosplay, and Scarlet made sure that nothing was missed, sporting the same black school hat that all students at Shiketsu High must wear as part of their uniform, complete with the institutions logo emblazoned on the front, while her silver collar is also present to finish off the look.

Heroes Rising takes place during My Hero Academia Season 4, but is a spin-off adventure not linked with the overarching storyline, so if you can’t get out to the cinema, or your local theater isn’t showing it, you won’t have to worry about missing a vital piece of Izuku’s journey.

New episodes of MHA continue to release on a weekly basis, with English-dubbed and Japanese versions simulcast for the first time in the show’s history.

A Neon Genesis Evangelion cosplayer made waves on Instagram after sharing her insanely accurate take on protagonist Asuka Langley.

One of the most influential animes of all time, Neon Genesis Evangelion helped shape the Mecha genre for decades to come after its groundbreaking debut in 1995.

A talented cosplayer honored the beloved series by bringing one of its most popular characters, Asuka Langley, to life with her mind-blowing recreation of the heroine.

Asuka is one of the most popular characters from the iconic Mecha anime.

Evangelion’s Asuka brought to life with incredible cosplay

The anime takes place in a post-apocalyptic Tokyo where alien beings called Angels have humanity on the brink of destruction. Characters like Asuka Langley pilot giant Mecha called Evangelion to fight back the enormous threat.

Cosplayer Esther ‘keikocosplay’ transformed into the heroine on Instagram, and wowed with her incredibly faithful portrayal. The artist nailed the character’s look, mirroring her flowing auburn hair that runs down her back, as well as her signature red clip accessories. 

Photographer ‘MichelTakuma’ captured Keiko posing in Langley’s red pilot bodysuit. Her depiction of her uniform is full of details, such as her black under-armor with circuits, and the green light that runs across the top of her neckline.

In another picture taken by ‘bcwphoto’, the cosplayer re-created an iconic scene from the anime where Asuka is wounded in the eye. The character is often depicted wearing an eyepatch after the important scene. Keiko’s gorgeous true-to-life depiction of the moment is chilling. 

Evangelion was written and directed by renowned Japanese artist Hideaki Anno. Despite its release over two decades ago, the series is as popular as its ever been. Its influential story has had a major impact on the medium.

Those that have never seen the iconic shows are in luck as the original adaptation can be watched on Netflix right now. Its multiple spinoffs and sequels can also be caught on streaming services Funimation and Crunchyroll.
