The illustration is very beautiful and shows a very beautiful girl delivering a chocolate, she wears a skirt and shorts under the skirt. Her hair is colored and she wears some accessories.

That’s it, that was all it took for some nasty comments to be said in Minori’s illustration shares:

“Choker, bandana and shorts fully visible. gals don’t wear short hair, blunt bangs or interior color.”

“Where’s the gal?”

“There is no such gal kkkkkkkkkk”

“inner collar, bandana made out of weird stuff, funny shorts, choker… if a woman designed this, it’s the end of the world”

As you can see, Minori Chigusa made an art of a “gal” giving chocolate, but some people started complaining, saying that gals don’t dress like that.

Minori Chigusa is an illustrator, in 2020 she published on her profile that she was still in high school and that her illustrations were made in view of her vision as a high school girl, we don’t know her exact age, but she is very young yet.

If she’s still a high school girl, and she says she’s a gal, doesn’t that mean that current high school gals dress that way?

Japanese reaction:

“I guess they didn’t get chocolate”

“Gal police?”

“Complaining like that about 2D drawings is honestly crazy”

“I’m describing the ideal gal, not a real gal”

“If I write that I like this kind of fashion, the gal police will catch me”

“I draw a lot of gals and I didn’t know I would give this problem to a famous illustrator, I’m glad I’m an unknown artist”

Anyway, this is just one more episode in the long list of “people who don’t know how to differentiate 2D from reality”.
