My Hero Academia remains one of the most popular anime in the world, and one fan showed off their appreciation for one of Season 4’s newest characters, pro hero Ryuko Tatsuma.

The series follows the story of Izuku Midorya and his fellow Class 1-A students at U.A. High School, where they are learning to control and harness their superpowers, known as quirks, to become professional heroes and save civilians from villains.

In Season 4, Deku and his classmates are sent out on their Hero-Work Studies, a learning experience where they work with professionals in real-world situations to hone their skills, and popular characters Ochaco Uraraka and Tsuyu Asui get paired up with the Dragoon Hero Ryuko Tatsuma.

While many quirks see their users gain abilities, Ryuko’s sees her undergo a complete transformation as she turns into a large dragon, giving her superhuman strength, unmatched durability, and wings which allow her to take flight.

Cosplayer ‘JinDjinn’ is clearly a fan of the character, showing off her perfect take on the character, complete with her instantly recognizable headband that sees a metallic dragon claw cover the right side of her face, and the black dragon wings that sit either side of her chin-length blonde hair.

Attention to detail is always important in a cosplay, and JinDjinn has captured the pro hero perfectly, wearing the same white arm-sleeves that Ryuko wears, and even creating the same qipao that she wears, with gold detailing and green dragon-scale material on the sleeves.

My Hero Academia is currently in its fourth season, and has opened a new world of pro heroes to fans of the anime as Class 1-A venture out into the real world to test themselves against the criminals who are causing chaos in Japan.

For the first time ever, the series is being simulcast in both Japanese and English, meaning that no matter which version you prefer, you won’t miss out on any of the action.
