A My Hero Academia cosplayer went viral when she shared her adorable take on Izuku Midoriya. The artist’s unique female twist on the anime protagonist will warm fans’ hearts.

My Hero Academia made its epic debut in 2016, and became an absolute cultural phenomena. Millions of viewers from around the world connected with its story about a high school that trains teenagers with superpowers called ‘quirks.’

A talented artist shared a mind-blowing transformation into the show’s popular lead Izuku Midoriya. The cosplayer’s creative twist on the green-haired anime character, originally made by ‘alyssandriacosplay’, is one of the best things MHA fans will ever see.

The 2016 hero anime continues to be a worldwide phenomena.

MHA cosplayer brings Midoriya to life

In the anime, protagonist Midoriya desperately wants to grow up to have powers, but is unfortunately born quirkless. However things change when the Number One Pro Hero All Might passes on his All For One quirk on to him, making him his successor.

Cosplayer ‘ellsnyx‘ shared her adorable transformation into the character on Instagram, wearing a female twist of Izuku’s uniform made by ‘alyssandriacosplay‘. Photographer ‘amiephotos‘ captured the artist striking a heroic pose.

Ells perfectly depicts the character’s green messy hair with the help of a detailed wig by ‘ardawigs‘. In the series, the students of U.A. High get to choose their hero uniform, which she wears in the form of tracksuit top that leads into a skirt.

In another shot taken by ‘artistictherapy‘, the cosplayer holds on to her prop mask, as she mimics Midoriya’s pose from the show. The amazing face guard was created by ‘jaximusgt‘, and is a perfect replica to the one in the series.

As if that wasn’t impressive enough, Ells also faithfully re-created a scene from the series when Midoriya channels his All for One quirk through his finger. In the first season, the character’s power is so strong, he has to limit to a single digit.

The stunning picture gives fans a closer look at the amount of work that went into the cosplayer creating the anime hero’s look. This is easily one of the best portrayals we’ve seen of the green-haired protagonist.

My Hero Academia originally made its debut as a manga in 2014, although it truly exploded in popularity with its anime adaption by studio Bones. For everything we know about Season 5, check out our guide here.

Those looking to see what all the hype is about can jump into the show right now. All episodes can be watched on streaming services Crunchyroll and Funimation.

A Taiwanese man went viral on Facebook after revealing that he had dumped his girlfriend due to her jealousy of Demon Slayer character, Nezuko. The avid fan had a collection of figurines dedicated to the anime heroine. 

Demon Slayer was the breakout anime of 2019, and has since become a worldwide phenomena. The series has become so popular that its first theatrical film, Mugen Train, is on track to become the highest-grossing film of all time in Japan.

However, one fan’s love of the animated series got him into hot water with his girlfriend who became fed up with his Nezuko figurines and threw out the collection worth over $3,500 USD. The man went viral after sending her packing.

Man dumps girlfriend for mocking Demon Slayer’s Nezuko

The anime fan’s plight was first discovered by the Demon Slayer community after he opened up about the whole ordeal in a Facebook post on November 10. According to the man, his girlfriend had bagged up all of his Nezuko figurines without his permission and threw them in the trash while he was away on vacation.

While his partner claimed it had to do with them taking up too much space, the fan explained that she never liked his passion for the series. “I know you didn’t like [the figurines] when we first started dating. I’m an otaku who loves watching anime. I tried to cooperate with you and watch those less,” a rough translation of the essay reads.

Tragically, he then revealed that he felt both “sad” and “pitiful” for enjoying his hobby. The man called his girlfriend out for being hypocritical for watching Korean dramas all the time and obsessing over famous actors. He also asked why they couldn’t just respect each other’s own tastes and preferences.

In the end, the Demon Slayer fan broke up with his partner after he discovered she had trashed his figurines which he spent years collecting. At the time of writing, it’s unknown whether the man has plans to re-buy more Nezuko merchandise.

Originally written as a manga by Japanese artist Koyoharu Gotoge in 2016, the hit franchise has exploded in popularity after being adapted into an anime series by the renowned Studio Ufotable.
