In the manga and anime series Haikyu!!, Hinata Shoyo is a first year student at Karasuno High and a member of the school’s volleyball team. He has a cheerful and exuberant personality, which he uses to win others over. He tends to do poorly in classes due to his focus on volleyball.
Arataka Reigen is Mob Kageyama’s mentor and boss from the anime/manga Mob Psycho 100 created by One Punch Man creator ONE. He is the self-proclaimed “Greatest Psychic of the 21st Century” as well as owner and operator of the Spirits and Such Consultation Office. Though not a real Psychic, he is a master at conning others and faking a business. Despite his dishonesty, Reigen is a kind hearted and well meaning mentor to Mob, and he gives Mob guidelines to live life as a normal kid despite having immense power. He is hardly ever seen without his trusty Mob by his side, so it’s wise to make this a partner cosplay.
In Katekyō Hitman Reborn!, Kyoya Hibari is the leader of the Namimori Middle Disciplinary Committee, prefects who are in fact a group of delinquents. Hibari himself is a violent delinquent with little care for others who uses his status to harass other students.
Mob is the protagonist of the MOB PSYCHO 100 webcomic and anime series. He is an 8th grader with strong psychic abilities. He hides his emotions to keep his powers in check, and he rarely uses them. He works alongside Reigen, professional con artist and self proclaimed psychic expert. Together the two serve as the cheapest but strangely most efficient exorcism team in Japan. When Mob’s percentage reaches 100, he ‘explodes’, resulting in spiky hair and uncontrollable anger. Spiked wig optional for this version of Mob.
Mob Psycho 100 is from the same creator as One-Punch Man which means it can make for a cool duo cosplay.
Robert Edward O. Speedwagon is one of the major allies in JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure Part 1: Phantom Blood and Part 2: Battle Tendency. He starts the series as a street urchin but quickly becomes Jonathan Joestar’s closest friend. Eventually he forms the Speedwagon Foundation, which assists the Joestar family even after his death from Part 2 to Part 6. Initially a comic relief character, he grows into arguably the most loyal and important side character in the whole franchise. He even plays a key role in the video game spin off JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure: Eyes of Heaven and is playable in it. Because of all this, he is universally beloved in the fandom and he makes for an easy beginner JoJo cosplay. Could go nicely with a Young Jonathan Joestar cosplay
