The cosplayer’s success has also led to appearances in Japanese magazines and movies as well as her becoming a voice actress and a pop singer. According to CBR, the cosplayer was recently hired to portray the character Mikasa Ackerman from the anime series “Attack on Titan” for a mobile game company.
