Loid and Anya robbed a bank. But for what reason?

What is all this exactly? Basically Loid and Anya robbed a bank as part of training for the police in Nangang District, Taiwan, which aims to improve the security of financial institutions and the police’s performance in these incidents.

And to viralize the training, making more people aware of such act, they decided to make the robbers use cosplays of Loid and Anya from the anime SPY x FAMILY, it is worth mentioning that the two “robbers” are policemen just playing their roles in this training.

Below you can see the video of the training:

These were the reactions of the Japanese when they found out about such training:

“Wow! an example of Operation Strix failing”

“Anya is strong because she can read people’s minds”

“I really want a pink MAC 10”

“Anya robbed a bank to help with family finances”

“It was necessary for the police woman to dress up as Anya…”

I think another reason also for the two policemen to use SPY x FAMILY cosplays was so that the personnel who would be part of the training could easily recognize them, what if during the training, real robbers appear?
