My Hero Academia fans love Midnight for different reasons, but they can all agree that the flirtatious and perceptive teacher is an incredible character to cosplay, especially when it’s done as well as this one.

Midnight, whose real name is Nemuri Kayama, is one of the most entrancing characters in My Hero Academia. On one hand, she’s an incredibly intelligent and perceptive faculty member at U.A. High School who teaches Modern Hero Art History.

However, on the other hand, she’s playful, flirtatious, and temperamental, and embraces her sexuality in how she acts and how she dresses. It often serves as a source of comic relief in the show.

But perhaps more importantly, Midnight is a badass hero who can secrete an aroma from her body that lulls people to sleep. It’s simple and useful, especially considering the fact it’s even more effective on men.

Midnight is flirty and seductive, but she’s also incredibly smart and perceptive.

A multitalented cosplayer named Hana Cos decided to slip into the My Hero Academia universe and become Midnight herself. It’s a popular choice that does the opposite of putting people to sleep, but it’s hard to find one better than hers.

Hana seems to take a lot of pride and passion in her work, and it really shines through in her Midnight cosplay.

It’s accurate and raunchy in all the right ways, from the predominately white costume with shades of black and red to the mask, whip, and ocean-blue eyes.

However, what’s more impressive is how well she wears it. The outfit contours to her body in the same way it does to Midnight. She could easily be mistaken for the real deal, especially with the hairpiece sprawled across her head.

Unfortunately, Hana had a little incident with her dog that ruined the hairpiece for good. It jumped on her bed and got its paw stuck in the wig.

Hana had her priorities straight and did what needed to be done to save her pooch. Sadly, that meant she had to destroy the wig. The whole ordeal has put her off from trying to fix it anytime soon.

It’s a shame, but at least she was able to show it off before it happened.

Bizarre Pokemon Journeys scene goes viral

In the November 27 episode of the Pokemon Journeys anime, Ash and Goh both participate in an eating contest. The competition has Trainers seeing whose ‘mon can consume the most food in the shortest time possible.

However, things took a cruel turn when the final dish served was a cuisine in the shape of Torchic. Blaziken’s appetite quickly turned sour at the thought of eating something shaped like his own species.

While the Torchic are technically a dessert item, the scene left some fans feeling disturbed or sympathetic towards the Pokemon’s plight. “I feel you Blaziken, being forced to eat your kind is cruel,” one fan wrote. Another user exclaimed “Who’s the sick b****rd that decided to try to make a Blaziken eat Torchics?”

Pokemon fans react to the disturbing anime scene on Reddit.

Despite only having aired in Japan, the scene quickly spread online as the community found it both be hilarious and creepy. Popular artist ‘popemadara‘ made a comedic drawing that went viral on Twitter that depicts other Pokemon in the same dilemma as Blaziken.

While it’s true that people eat human-shaped edibles called gingerbread men, the Torchic food item was disturbingly detailed. If nothing else, the situation showed that the Fire-type monster has a softer side.

Pokemon Journeys is currently still airing in Japan, however North American viewers can catch the first half of the series now on Netflix which is broken up into Part 1 and 2.
