Fans of Toradora! went wild over a cosplayer’s incredible portrayal of protagonist Taiga Aisaka. The mind blowing re-creation is so accurate, it’s as if the palmtop tiger has marched herself from out of the anime itself.

The classic slice of life anime was released in 2008, and became an instant hit with viewers who connected with its colorful cast of characters. The comedy centers on two students who agree to help each other try to get with their romantic crush.

A talented cosplayer shared her take on the show’s female lead Taiga Aisaka. The insanely accurate costume has brought the short-tempered character to life and has left fans of the series in awe.

The popular romantic comedy was one of the breakout anime series of 2008.

Toradora! cosplayer shares perfect Taiga costume 

The story follows students Ryuji Takasu and Taiga who both accidentally discover the other’s romantic crush. Making a pact, they work together throughout the school year to try to score a relationship.

Cosplayer ‘kaddicosplay’ shared her costume of the show’s female lead on social media, and looked exactly like the character. Her insanely detailed outfit is so accurate, it has us seeing double.

The talented artist captured the anime heroine’s red school blazer jacket and blue pleated skirt to perfection. Collaborating with photographer ‘rendomfotografu,’ the cosplayer struck a pose on top of a desk in front of a chalkboard.

In the show, Taiga has a short-temper and is ready to explode on anyone that gets in her way. Kaddi embodied the character’s sassy attitude in another photo, holding a wooden broom while staring down her foes.

Despite having an explosive personality, Aisaka is extremely tiny which earns her the nickname “the palmtop tiger” from the other students. In an adorable photo, the German cosplayer points out the character’s height.

Fans of the series were in awe of the cosplay artist’s faithful take on the character. User ‘freyzer_606’ exclaimed “I don’t know how it’s humanly possible for you to be this perfect, it’s like the best Taiga I’ve ever seen.” Another fan ‘au_cos_summers” said “Praises to this palm top tiger.”

Toradora! fans fell in love with the cosplayer’s take on Taiga.

The classic anime was adapted from a wildly popular light novel written by Yuyuko Takemiya in 2006. The series ran until 2009, and has also spawned a manga version.

Toradora! can be watched in its entirety on streaming service Crunchyroll. The site hosts both the original subtitle version, and an excellent dub for those that prefer English.

Attack on Titan cosplayers have been dishing up their best cosplays in recent weeks to prepare themselves for the end of the series, but this Mikasa Ackerman piece is something else.

The fourth and final season of Attack on Titan ends on February 15, which isn’t too far away. It’s a bittersweet moment for fans who have followed the show since it’s release back in 2013.

However, that hasn’t stopped fans from making the most out of it. Instead, there’s been an influx of impressive cosplays as fans have dressed up as their favorite characters from the show.

The main characters received a new look in the latest season, which opened the door for cosplayers to take on new challenges and ideas. Mikasa Ackerman’s new look has been a popular choice.

Mikasa is one of the most powerful characters in Attack on Titan.

Chandary, a popular cosplayer from France, transformed herself into Mikasa and it turned out great. Her fans were stunned with the final product, describing it as everything from “iconic” to “the best reason for humanity to survive.”

“Are you excited for Mikasa new look in Season?” said Chandary. “I was able to do this [cosplay] thanks to my friend and waifu reitoneeo who lent me her jacket. Thank you [so much].”

All the details are spot on. Chandary has included the shirt, scarf, jacket, suspenders, and straps. The highlight, however, is definitely the hair, which looks about as real as it gets.

It’s always nice for anime fans to see their favorite characters brought to life in incredible detail. You don’t even have to be a cosplay enthusiast to appreciate it. 

Chandary has done an excellent job, and there’s no doubt she’s helped people get excited about what’s to come in the last few episodes.
