In Japan, people watching events unfolding in Crimea appear to have become captivated by the region's newly-appointed attorney general.
Clips of a press conference with Natalia Poklonskaya have been shared widely on Japanese platforms, says website Rocketnews24. She was appointed to the post on 11 March and formerly served as a senior prosecutor for the city of Simferopol.
In particular, one video in which Poklonskaya listens to a reporter's question has been viewed nearly 300,000 times since it was posted to a Japanese YouTube channel. There is no translation of her answer. Some people appear to be so taken with the seemingly charming prosecutor, they are turning out manga images and anime fan art inspired by her.

This has become, literally, a kind of cartoon.
However, the defendant is definately not guilty.
Until I see a rendition of Poklonskaya in 1970s-style Tatsunoko anime, I’ll pass on seeing the pic (again).
I have to admit, she is the closest real female I’ve ever seen that looks like a character out of an anime....that doesn’t look like they’ve been infused with a ton of silicone.
The uniform clinches it.
Something like Inspector Detector's hot daughter (or considerably younger boss)? Yep, that would work. It would definitely need to be a recurring character.

You know she’s a beauty when she looks that good without makeup or revealing clothing.
She’s attractive, yes, but I;m not falling out of my chair just yet. Her Judicial Eyes are either those of an introvert forced to interact with the public, or those of a very cold person resigned to the tedious duties of her mission for Putin and The State.
Not surprising, she bears a striking resemblance to a character on a popular anime, Fullmetal Alchemist. Google Riza Hawkeye and you’ll see why.
It's what's inside that counts. She's an enforcer for the NeoSoviet Empire® That almost certainly makes her portrait in the attic a nightmare.
Is that from Girls Und Panzer?
I wonder if they are going to have to create a new character for Hetallia, ie. Crimea and Ukraine...?
It was a cute series, surprisingly informative, are they trying to train Japanese schoolchildren to run tanks....
Well they probably need to since we won;t do anything to slow china down...
The funny thing is the pictures of “Gaddafi as an anime woman” actually looks like some of his bodyguards....
Girls und Panzer is awesome. Go to anilinkz.com to watch the series. It is hugh as well.
No, I think its just another variation on school-girl fantasy voyeurism for geeky Japanese guys.
