Twitch streamer Neekolul has delighted fans of her’s and the anime My Hero Academia by cosplaying as character Shoto Todoroki’s ‘older sister,’ putting an awesome feminine twist on the original character design.

Neekolul found popularity on Twitch in 2017, amassing a follower base of over 250,000 by playing games such as Dead by Daylight and League of Legends. She also went viral on TikTok in March with a video of her dancing to the Senzawa song “Oki Doki Boomer.”

She seems the perfect candidate for a personality-filled anime cosplay, and did just that by putting her own spin on Todoroki from My Hero Academia.

Todoroki is a stand out character thanks to his half-red half-white hair, mimicking his half-hot half-cold Quirk. A student at U.A High, he is training to become a Pro Hero, and is one of the main protagonists in the series.

Neekolul has flipped Todoroki on his head, however, by swapping his boxy school uniform for a uniform-esque green skater skirt, a white shirt with the sleeves rolled up and a bold red tie.

The thigh-high socks and jacket wrapped around her waist tie the youthful school look in together, keeping with Todoroki’s original aesthetic but giving it a cute spin that has fans stunned.

And of course, Neekolul has kept that iconic red and white hair, but instead of Todoroki’s cropped cut, her locks hang in long pigtails. The bold red of the hair and her tie really make the pink of her eyeshadow and blush pop, looking even more like she’s stepped right out of an anime.

In the video itself, she dances to a throwback TikTok song “Mia Khalifa” by iLOVEFRiDAY, a song that soared in popularity on the app in 2018, making it the perfect MHA TikTok crossover with a boost of nostalgia for those who frequented the app at the time the song was at its peak.

The perfect cosplay has gained 14,000 likes and 110,000 views in the 22 hours since it was posted, and no doubt there’ll be more people flocking to her page to see her amazing take on a classic My Hero Academia character.

Posing in the character’s signature two-piece yellow outfit, the artist mirrored Valentine’s look effortlessly. She even included Faye’s signature red jacket which hangs loosely around the lower half of her arms.

The French cosplayer gave viewers a full look of her outfit, and showed just how accurate it is to the anime. From her purple cropped hair, to her iconic sunglasses, this is easily one of the best takes we’ve seen on the queen of hearts.

Cowboy Bebop originally made its debut as manga in 1997. However, its anime adaptation a year later by studio Sunrise made it an instant hit around the world.

Those wanting to watch the genre-bending sci-fi romp can catch all episodes on streaming services Funimation, Hulu, and HBO Max.
