A cosplay artist shared her take of one of the show’s most popular characters Rem, and it’s so true to the animation that it’s almost as if the heroine walked from out the screen and into real life.

Cosplayer ‘anongnoon’ became the adorable servant, and posted pictures of her insanely accurate costume on social media. She nailed Rem’s iconic blue locks and eyes, capturing her signature look.

The photo went viral on Instagram with over 7,000 likes at the time of writing. She looks so much like the character, it has us seeing double. Her photoset could pass for screenshots from a live action film.

As if that wasn’t impressive enough, Anong shared more photos of her costume – this time recreating scenes from the anime. Posing in front of a town backdrop, the cosplayer portrays the servant carrying a basket of flowers in Lugnica.

Her Rem outfit is full of details, such as the intricately designed black and white maid outfit. From her headband, to the pink ribbon that is tied to the left side of her hair, this is one of the best outfits we’ve seen of the Re:Zero character.

In another close-up shot, the skilled artist captures the character’s personality by leaning against a bench, and striking her signature hand pose. She makes it look as if Rem has been sucked into our world.

Re:Zero fans desperately waiting for season two have to wait just a little bit longer. The new episodes have been delayed due to the ongoing coronavirus crisis. The studio announced the new release date will be sometime in July 2020.

Those interested in catching up in time for the continuation of Subaru’s epic journey can catch the entirety of first season on Crunchyroll or Funimation.

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.
