Akari portrayed the green-haired anime character dressed in Maki’s second-year Tokyo Jujutsu High uniform. She also brought the character’s naginata (traditional Japanese halberd) polearm weapon to fight cursed spirits.
Together with the help of her photographer, Okada P, Akari relived the events of the Kyoto Goodwill Event Arc by taking a photo near a river. During this arc, Tokyo and Kyoto Jujutsu High students faced each other in a series of jujutsu challenges.
Despite not having the ability to see curses, Maki remains to be a powerful jujutsu sorcerer with her insane physical strength and weapon mastery. She is dubbed the best cursed tool user at Tokyo Jujutsu High for being able to wield a wide array of weapons.
Maki is good friends with Toge Inumaki, Panda, and JJK0 protagonist Yuta Okkotsu.
Aside from Maki, Akari has also cosplayed other anime characters such as Chainsaw Man’s Makima, Shikimori’s Not Just A Cutie’s Shikimori, Cardcaptor Sakura’s Sakura, Spy x Family’s Yor, and Kaguya-sama: Love is War’s Kaguya.
The singer rose to fame after performing “Koi no Yukue”, the ending song of the My Dress Up Darling anime. She captured the hearts of many weeaboos after cosplaying as the series’ protagonist, Marin Kitagawa, in the song’s official music video.
