New Rangiku Matsumoto Cosplay Sees 'Bleach' Fans Amazed

We have recently reported that Tite Kubo’s Bleach is celebrating the 20th Anniversary of the anime’s premiere with a special exhibition in Japan and that the franchise is heating up for the upcoming third part of the Thousand-Year Blood War anime, which is set to premiere later this year. SennaRin released “Reaper,” a song related to the series, and the first part of the new anime season received its special Blu-ray release, all in preparation for the upcoming third cour. But, while the anime is on a break, Bleach is still very much alive in the hearts of fans, as is witnessed by a recent cosplay we were able to find.

Namely, Bleach cosplay is quite popular, and while not as popular as some other series due to the franchise’s status, there are still numerous cosplayers who like to bring Bleach characters to life. One of them is Mayweda, who has blessed us all with a brilliant piece of cosplay related to one of the series’ most popular characters.

Rangiku Matsumoto is one of the most popular Bleach characters. And while she is a supporting character with limited screen time, fans generally love her and are in anticipation of her increased screen time in the upcoming cours of the anime. She is the Lieutenant of the 10th Division, a very experienced Shinigami who has worked with Ichigo’s father, Isshin, when he was the Captain, and is now working under Captain Toshiro Hitsugaya. In the Arrancar Saga, she had a great story related to Gin Ichimaru, as the two of them had been friends since they were children.

However, while Rangiku’s role decreased later, due to her physique and her very interesting personality, she has remained popular with the fandom and is often listed as one of the series’ most popular characters. Even Tite Kubo himself has stated that Rangiku was one of his favorite characters to write and draw because he always had many possibilities with her due to her quirky character.

But, we have promised you a great piece of Rangiku cosplay, and here it is:

As you can see, this is a truly authentic and realistic piece of cosplay, as Mayweda really does look a lot like Randiku, down to the smallest details, which is impressive. The robe is realistic, we can see her blade, and the hair is completely identical, in both shape and color to Rangiku Matsumoto’s from Bleach, which is quite impressive and is, without a doubt, one of the best pieces of Matsumoto cosplay we’ve seen. We just hope that we’ll be seeing more great examples in the future and that we’ll be able to report them to you.
