About This Quiz

Ever heard of wildly popular shows like "Pokemon," "Naruto" and "Dragon Ball Z?" If so, then you're probably familiar with the cultural impact of such anime shows. Some people like to collect all of the merchandise from their favorite anime series, while others aspire to be like their favorite heroes one day. But for others, there exists a special category that involves dressing up as a certain type of anime character.

This is known as cosplay, and it's a popular part of conventions and anime contests. While some cosplayers definitely go all out with their costumes, others like to incorporate small elements into their everyday wardrobe. Now, we're not saying that you should walk around with a "Death Note" or a sword from "Bleach," but something like a green "Attack on Titan" cape or Monkey D. Luffy's hat would do the trick! But why do people go out of their way to assemble such an elaborate costume anyway? Well, the answer varies, but many people grew up watching anime shows. They may also feel a connection and bond to their favorite characters. 

But let's be real here: it's just so much fun to become someone else for a day. So in this fun anime quiz, you'll get your chance to dress up as an iconic character!
