If you can see Overwatch's Genji you've probably let him get too close. The same applies to his character in Heroes of the Storm. And if that happens, whatever you do, don't shoot him.

While it's possible to play Overwatch and not pay attention to its lore, there's a part of that game's fandom that loves it for its lore. These fans theorise about character backgrounds, make fan art, and often obsess over the possible romantic pairing in the game, known as "shipping."
They imagine former friends Reaper and Soldier 76 sharing intimate moments in easier times, or they dream of rivals Widowmaker and Tracer falling in love on the battlefield. There are also fans who ship Genji and Hanzo. That's where some fans think shipping goes too far, because Genji and Hanzo aren't former friends or rivals. They're brothers.
It's a tale as old as time. Overwatch has a new event, and with it, new skins. While the fandom was already hyped for Genji's Blackwatch skin, they have noticed something interesting: He has goddamn knives on his feet.
The more people that get into Overwatch, the more Overwatch cosplay we see. The more we see, the better it gets. And few have been better than this Genji getup.
