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.

A My Hero Academia cosplayer has shown off her perfect take on one of the anime’s most terrifying characters, the blood-thirsty and unpredictable villain Himiko Toga. 

The ultra-popular anime made it’s stunning debut back in 2016, and has captured the hearts and imaginations of viewers across the globe as they follow the story of Izuku Midoriya, a young man learning to control his newly found superpowers as he attempts to become the number one pro hero and fight against the evil League of Villains.

Throughout his time studying at U.A. High School, Deku has many ferocious and dangerous encounters with the villainous organization, and while they may be the bad guys in this epic story, one of the antagonists has enthralled fans above anyone else, with the sinister schoolgirl Himiko Toga quickly becoming a fan favorite, and one of the most popular characters from the series to cosplay.

Himiko Toga is a vicious villain with a taste for blood.

While Himiko may not look terrifying at first glance, the young woman has a truly sinister side that matches her seemingly innocent shapeshifting quirk. To transform into someone else, Himiko needs the blood of her intended target, and make no mistake, she takes great pleasure in extracting the red liquid she needs, often carrying around a knife just on the off-chance that she encounters someone she can slice.

In fact, Toga often wears vials around her neck to collect any blood she needs, something that Instagram user ‘pinkupandaa‘ captured perfectly in her incredible cosplay, complete with the massive and scary teeth that make up part of her headgear. Her hair is styled perfectly too, sitting either side of her head in two messy buns, just like the character.

Yuka has also matched her outfit too, with a red handkerchief tied around her neck, and her classic school uniform with a beige top and navy skirt. The cosplay is so good that it looks like Himiko has just been taken out of the show and dropped into real life, making this one of the best Toga cosplays we’ve seen.

Since it’s release in 2016, My Hero Academia has become a fan-favorite across the globe, and for the first time ever, was dual broadcasted in both English and Japanese so viewers across the planet could catch all the action at the same time.
