Voice actor Max Mittelman, best known for bringing the character of Saitama from One Punch Man to life, has revealed a downright hilarious Fall Guys anime parody with a little help from some friends.

The whole project actually began back on August 25, when Mittelman jokingly tweeted: “Fall Guys: The Anime,” to the approval of 3,500 likes.

This idea ended up sitting well with user Russel Baclig, who went to work right away trying to create the joke idea that Mittelman had pitched.

A single day later, the project was off the ground – and better yet, Mittelman was going to contribute to it in more ways than just being the catalyst for its creation.

On September 4, Saitama’s voice actor revealed the project was complete. “Last week, I jokingly tweeted ‘FALL GUYS: THE ANIME,’” he wrote. “This week, thanks to our new friend, that dream has become a reality.”

Best of all, fellow voice actors Robbie Daymond (known for Prompto in Final Fantasy XV and Akechi in Persona 5) and Ray Chase (known for Roy in Super Smash Bros and Puri Puri Prisoner in One Punch Man) joined in.

The video is a nice parody for both Fall Guys and anime in general. The plot is that a very serious gamer is trying to grief casual players. Eventually, the three have to team up to take on the antagonist and qualify for the next round.

Amusingly, the video even includes a Dragon Ball Z reference when the antagonist proclaims, “This isn’t even my final form,” and sheds his hotdog skin – a callback to Frieza’s line from DBZ.

For fans of Fall Guys, anime, One Punch Man and just animation in general, this is definitely an amazing video to check out and share with your friends.

It’s crazy to think that a joke tweet could result in an entire video – but hey, that’s the internet in 2020. Kinda awesome.

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.

Attack on Titan’s third season ended with a blockbuster revelation about the origin of the Titans and the war that the Scouts have waged for hundreds of years, leaving fans desperately waiting for the final season of the show.

The good news is that the fourth season of the anime is still set in fall 2020, with the teaser trailer released in late May.
