Steins;Gate’s Kurisu brought to life

Cosplayer ‘Faid Eyren’ shared her costume of Makise on social media, and looks just like the character. Not only is her costume perfectly accurate, she actually took the photos in Akihabara, Japan which is where the anime takes place.

In what could easily pass for a scene from an official live action film, the artist poses as the character holding her folders of data, with the city skyline in the backdrop. Her cosplay is one of the most faithful depictions of the heroine that we’ve ever seen.

. . Возвращаемся к Вратам- мое любимое фото из этого сета) А вот ещё интересность из моего личного наблюдения- в аниме персонажи постоянно пьют Dr Pepper- но этот продукт плейсмент там не потому что компания отварила денег за рекламу ( что не исключено тоже), но потому что на Акихабаре действительно огромное количество автоматов продают этот напиток, хоть и в банках и 0,5 бутылках, а не в литровых, как в аниме) Поэтому любовь безумных ученых к этому напитку связана не только с его вкусом, но и доступностью именно в этом районе) .

Faid uploaded more pictures of her dressed up as the S;G scientist, and showed off how faithful her outfit is. In the story, Kurisu has a quirky style, which she nails by recreating her brown jacket that hangs down from her arms.

In another shot that depicts a scene from the show, she stands over a bridge holding her work. The cosplay artist captures even the little details, such as her red tie which is loose under the collar of her white shirt.

Much of the series takes place in Akihabara which is a central district in Tokyo. It’s famous for its electronic shops and anime. The talented artist took stunning photos with the real location in the background, and it really ties her whole cosplay together.

. . Во время этого фотосета по Вратам мы постарались обойти все основные места из событий аниме. Для меня в косплее важна не только точность костюма, но и максимально каноничная локация и реквизит. Зачастую подготовка реквизита для локации занимает времени не меньше, чем сам костюм. А вы заморачиваетесь с локациями и реквизитом так же сильно как с костюмами тли делаете упор только на образ? . .

While Steins;Gate aired its last episode close to eight years ago, the series’ legacy has continued to grow. Due to its popularity, it even got a spin-off sequel in 2018 called ‘Zero’ which tells the other side of the plot.

Those that want to dive into the mind-bending sci-fi story can stream every episode on Crunchyroll or Funimation. The visual novels are also available on PlayStation 4 and Nintendo Switch.

Dragon Ball Super fans furious as new manga chapter rehashes Cell Games

Dragon Ball fans who have been watching the anime and reading the manga for years were furious after a preview for Chapter 65 showed protagonist Goku making the same mistake he made in the Cell Games years ago.

The Dragon Ball Super manga has been doing its own thing with the anime on hiatus and the Broly movie now a distant memory. Notably, Toyotarou, has taken over as the official artist for Super working with series creator Akira Toriyama.

While the newest arc has been relatively well-received by fans with its new villain, Moro, proving to be quite the adversary, the previews for Chapter 65 have left fans furious.

With Goku now able to tap into his most powerful form in Ultra Instinct on a whim thanks to the sacrifice of his mentor Merus, the Saiyan began dominating the arc’s nemesis.

However, with Moro on the ropes, Goku has repeated a major mistake he made during the Cell Games in Dragon Ball Z – giving the villain a Senzu Bean and healing him. This time, it was under the condition that Moro would turn himself into the Galactic Patrol.

According to translator Dragon Ball Hype, after taking the bean, Moro rushes towards Goku with the intent of killing him.

This is a bit of a retread of the Cell Games where, after retiring from his fight against Cell, Goku gave the android a Senzu Bean to recover before he fought his son, Gohan.

The fact that Goku has made this mistake again and that Toyotarou even wrote the story like this has many fans scratching their heads.

Notable Dragon Ball YouTuber Geekdom101 noted that while he had advised fans to normally wait until the rest of a chapter before passing judgment, this mistake was inexcusable.

“After thinking it over, there’s absolutely no excusing that decision. It’s stupid and illogical and the development is on a hamster wheel. Same old sh*t,” he wrote.

Others are even quitting the series. “I’m officially done with Dragon Ball Super,” a now former fan wrote.

“This arc is ruined now!” another angry fan remarked.

It’s always possible that Toyotarou has thrown fans for a loop and this is all part of some big twist, but for the time being, even the most loyal of Dragon Ball supporters seem to be put off by these story decisions.
