We have previously talked about yue wanga Canadian artist better known as “sakimichan“, recognized for her digital illustrations and her unique style, especially in which she draws fanarts of video games and popular characters, and the creation of GIFs for her fans with voice acting. Wang was involved in a controversy in the internet community last month after drawing an adult version of Anya Forger of SPY x FAMILY with his sensual and characteristic style.
At the time, the criticism of the artist did not matter, since shortly after that well-known Twitter community exploded in anger at her publication, she wrote: «A hug and affection, all the support is appreciated. I will continue drawing what I find interesting even if it is not to everyone’s liking. I will also continue to learn and improve my skills».
Shortly after, he would also publish a set of illustrations now based on the character Yor Forger.
But then it occurred to her to have Anya and Yor switch roles, posting an illustration of Anya Forger as a 31-year-old housewife, evidently in quite a revealing outfit:
This did not leave that sector of the Twitter community happy, who once again bombarded his publication with comments such as the following:
- «I love what you do but fuck please stop using that character».
- «I love how specific she has to be to clarify that she is 31 years old in the drawing».
- «Sakimichan is passive-aggressively spitting on fans».
- «I don’t know how to feel about this».
- «For those of you who can’t handle this, you better get rid of your kids before they grow up, because they’re going to get old and eventually fuck someone.».
- «Absolutely not, why the hell didn’t you choose Yor?».
- «It is not the fact that a girl has been aged, but the fact that a girl has been specifically aged to be sexualized».
- «Right now, he is drawing her because he draws a lot of attention to his account. it is understandable».
- «If people put the same energy to defend children for real, it would be great».
- «No offense, but you could literally have made any adult, pink-haired anime woman and it would still have the same effect you wanted (people appreciating your work, which does have a lot of skill put into it). Why Anya? Simply remove the hair things from her in the shape of a cat ear and do not associate your illustration with her».
- «Those who see a girl in this are the real pedophiles».
- «I think people don’t get it, it’s not that she’s aged, it’s the thought process of seeing a child character and saying “I want to sexualize her”».
- «There is no hate, I love art… but something feels wrong when an artist looks at a girl and thinks “I am going to age her so I can draw her in a sexy way”… Why not draw her, the girl, just like that? Why does it have to be something suggestive?».
- «You could have used the character from “Rengoku no Ashe” that inspired Anya and who is an adult, but no, it had to be the little girl».
- «I’ll be honest, I like his work, but personally, when I see someone age a girl just to be a little lewd, it makes me question humanity.».
Synopsis for SPY x FAMILY
For the agent known as “Twilight”, no order is too high if it is for the sake of peace. Operating as Westalis’ master spy, Twilight works tirelessly to stop extremists from unleashing a war with neighboring Ostania. For his latest mission, he must investigate Ostanian politician Donovan Desmond by infiltrating his son’s school: the prestigious Eden Academy. Thus, the agent faces the most difficult task of his career: getting married, having a child and playing family.
Twilight, or “Loid Forger”, quickly adopts humble orphan Anya to play the role of a six-year-old daughter and prospective Eden Academy student. As a wife, she meets Yor Briar, an absent-minded office worker who needs a fake partner to impress her friends. However, Loid is not the only one with a hidden nature. Yor is actually the deadly assassin “Thorn Princess” and for her, marrying Loid creates the perfect cover. Meanwhile, Anya is not the ordinary girl that she appears to be; she is an esper, the product of secret experiments that allow her to read minds. Although she discovers her true identities, Anya is thrilled that her new parents are cool secret agents! She would never tell them, of course. That would spoil the fun.
