Cosplay Defenders is like a page out of a manga (Japanese comic book). It features two characters in cosplay (dressing up as a character) and their faithful robot considering the approaching kaiju (giant monster from Japanese science fiction films). One character attempts to remain optimistic as a large shadow looms over the trio. The viewer of the painting gets to decide their fate.
