Chainsaw Man may be done with season one, but that hasn’t stopped fans from celebrating the series. Tatsuki Fujimoto’s hit manga was released on TV last year and its fall release has garnered praise from fans around the world. Studio MAPPA performed week after week with its animation and the company made Aki the fandom’s new thirst trap. And now a fan is going viral for recreating one of the character’s most iconic moments from season one.
The piece comes courtesy of TikTok user secret, as you can see below. The fan has done a number of cosplays, and of course fans were all for their take on Chainsaw Man. It seems like netizens were most obsessed with the fans’ take on Aki, so of course they jumped on the TikTok transformation trend… and you just have to watch their video to see why we’re stan.
After all, Geheichou puts together an excellent cosplay that does Aki justice. From their costume to their wig styling and more, their version of Aki looks like it was taken off the TV screen. However, the thing that seals the deal when they record Aki’s derp face. Fans went wild when season one shared Aki’s hilarious still, given the weird angle of the fighter’s chin. So of course secrets created the look in real life for fans.
It’s clear that this cosplayer is an Aki fan through and through, just like the rest of us. Hopefully they can show the Devil Hunter when season two arrives. At this point, MAPPA hasn’t officially said anything about the show’s return, but the popularity of season one has left everyone hoping for more episodes to come!
