Mamakiteru has one solid, dependable shtick: she takes characters from Japanese horror manga, and she cosplays the hell out of them.

Not the entire character, though; she takes a single panel and re-enacts the frame itself, from the line work to the pose, sometimes even taking on multiple characters.

    • Anime News Network has an article with more of her work and titles for each of the recreations. I only recognised the second one as The Dissolving Classroom because the manga got licensed by Vertical last week.

    • I only recognise a couple.
      Title picture is Wispering Woman
      2nd Last from the Bottom is Dissection-chan

      Both stories are in Fragments of Horror by Junji Ito. The others seem of similar visual style and might also be his work. /shrug. Fragments and Gyo are on the Aussie Kindle store along with his ‘cat diary’ which I no nothing about but will probably buy.
