A My Hero Academia cosplayer brought Ochaco Uraraka to life, showing off her perfect rendition of the gravity-defying hero during U.A’s Sports Festival. 

My Hero Academia grabbed audiences around the world when the anime adaptation debuted in 2016, with fans immediately hooked by the characters and stories, watching as a group of students learned to become superheroes, using their powers known as ‘Quirks’ for good.

The story follows Izuku Midoriya as he learns to harness ‘One For All’, a legendary power passed from person to person through generations, but the shows other characters certainly captured the imagination of viewers, including Uraraka, whose power lets her ignore the laws of gravity and make objects, or herself, float.

While many imagine Uraraka, who uses the name Uravity when fighting villains, in her combat gear, cosplayer taiga765 decided to take a different route, showing off her version of the hero-in-training in the U.A. High School cheerleading costume, something which Minoru Mineta tricked her into wearing following her elimination from the Sports Festival.

Taiga has captured every detail of the outfit, showing off a flawless version of the hero in the cheerleading costume, sporting the orange and green colors with the initials “U.A.” emblazoned across her top.

The cosplayer also unveiled a version of Uraraka in her school uniform, complete with her signature bob, and the instantly-recognizable blazer which signifies that students are part of the most prestigious hero-training school in the world.

My Hero Academia is currently in its fourth season, with fans excited to see the continuation of Class 1-A’s incredible story as they attempt to learn the skills needed to become true heroes, all while battling villains and the Shie Hassaikai Yakuza group.

For the first time ever, the anime is being simulcast in both Japanese and English, meaning fans who watch the dubbed version don’t have to wait for it to be voiced-over when the series concludes.

Attack on Titan’s Eren Yeager is a popular choice among cosplayers, but a recent effort re-created the character perfectly, and the pictures have gone viral. 

Attack on Titan is one of the darkest and strangest mainstream animes in recent times. However, that hasn’t stopped it from becoming an incredibly popular smash-hit. If anything, it’s probably the reason why.

Nobody ever thought they’d be into a story about human soldiers locked into a battle with over-sized human-looking monsters called Titans who eat people.

Yet, here we all are, and we’re hooked. 

Attack on Titan has many interesting characters, but it revolves around Eren Yeager, the main protagonist. He started as an impulsive and hardheaded peasant with a burning despite to help eliminate Titans.

But he quickly grew into a capable member of the Scout Regiment and even stumbled upon a special power of his own. For that reason, he’s become a fan-favorite among fans and cosplayers alike.

A cosplayer named Noah Lance decided to step into Eren Yeager’s boots. They’re massive ones to fill, but he did such a great job, the photos have gone viral. The pictures have already generated almost 10,000 likes on Instagram.

“I hate people when they’re not polite,” he said, in reference to one of Eren Yeager’s quotes from the show. “If you end up on my table, then it serves you right.”

Noah’s outfit looks like the real deal. It has everything from the khaki-colored shirt, brown belt, brown straps to a replica necklace. The dual swords are the best feature, though, and they round it off nicely.

There’s also a second shot that provides a more zoomed-out view of the boots, straps, and pants. Noah’s definitely put in a lot of attention to detail, and it shows.

“And I’m hoping that you will see yourself like I see you,” he said.

Attack on Titan can be dark and grueling at times, but it still provides endless opportunities for fans and cosplayers to shine. Noah’s Eren Yeager cosplay is a testament to that.

The fourth and final series kicks off on December 7.

It marks the beginning of the end for the show, but there’s no doubt Attack on Titan fans will be in for a roller-coaster ride along the way.
