Due to its popularity, the original Neon Genesis Evangelion series got an HD remake in 2011 called “2.0.” While a retelling of the original cast of characters, the new iteration offered some exciting changes.

Lili_erlih brought the main protagonist, Asuka Shikinami Langley, to life with a cosplay set that’s so epic, it looks like a movie.

In the first shot, taken by Alien_vs_alens, they teamed up with cosplayer _ulichan_ to recreate a scene from the anime. They both posed dramatically in insanely accurate bodysuits, nailing every detail of the outfit.

In another photo posted to Twitter, Lili posed with fake blood on their face while also giving fans a closer view of their hair ad makeup. It really does look like it could be a poster for a Neon Genesis Evangelion movie.

Despite being 25 years old, the series is still very much loved by the community, especially with cosplayers who often bring their favorite characters to life.

If this has given you the urge to watch the anime, you’re in luck as Neon Genesis Evangelion 2.0 is available on Crunchyroll and Funimation. Those interested in the original series can view it on Netflix.
