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.

Attack on Titan Season 4 is just around the corner, and a talented fan of the show has shown off their incredible take on the Survey Corps’ Mikasa Ackerman, bringing the character to life in stunning detail.

Since its debut back in 2013, fans across the globe have been enamored with the story of Eren Yeager and Mikasa, who become refugees when one of the giant humanoid creatures known as Titans breached the walls that protected humanity and killed Eren’s mother.

Determined to destroy the creatures who killed his family, Eren vowed to join the Scout Regiment and head out beyond the walls to kill every Titan he saw, and free humanity from the threat for good. Mikasa, who made a vow as a child to protect him always after he saved her life, quickly followed him, and the inseparable pair joined the war together.

Talented with a sword in her hand, and an expert at swinging through towns or forests using her ODM gear, Mikasa is one of the most feared and dangerous members of the Scouts. Despite her personality sometimes leading others to think she is cold or standoffish, Mikasa is a true fan-favorite, thanks to her incredible skill and her undying love for Eren. She’s so popular in fact, that she has become the most cosplayed character from the series.

Mikasa is one of the most powerful characters in the popular anime.

Cosplayer ‘jeisuzukii‘ brought the character to life in stunning detail, capturing the Scout’s black hair perfectly, and making sure to wear the iconic red scarf that she is rarely seen without, and has become a staple of any good Mikasa cosplay.

She is also wearing the recognizable brown leather jacket that anyone who is part of the Survey Corps wears, complete with the Scouts’ recognizable logo, a pair of white and blue wings known as the ‘Wings of Freedom,’ a symbol of hope that they make escape the tyranny of the Titans.

The cosplay is truly stunning and looks like it was lifted straight out of the anime. If a live-action Attack on Titan was ever commissioned, it would be no surprise if it looked exactly like this.
