Everyone is critical these days, even when it comes to children’s drawings.
Ever since Britney Spears’ son appeared on his mother’s Twitter account last year dressed in a Dragon Ball Z cosplay, anime fans around the world have been applauding the young man’s love for Japanese animation.
Here he enters the character of Lord Freezer.

At the time, Spears refrained from going into specifics about one of his two sons who wore the suit, which left us wondering if it was Sean, 11, or Jayden, 10. years, who was in the anime world. Still, judging by this post on Spears’ Instagram account a month earlier, it’s safe to say the two boys aren’t complaining about celebrating their September birthdays with the help of Pokémon.

The celebrity family continues to express their love of anime again this year, with this recent post showing off some impressive illustrations drawn by Spears’ son and his sister-in-law. Spears’ ex-husband Kevin Federline has three daughters – Kori, 14, Jordan, 5 and Peyton, 3 – and although it is not clear which of his sons and which sister-in-law is behind each work, it is clear that they have a talent for drawing.

On the first photo, we see Dragon ball protagonist Goku turn into sound Super saiyan form, with the character’s protruding muscles tearing his shirt off in a dramatic scene in the series.
Scrolling down to the second image we see a beautifully drawn sketch of Rem, one of the main characters of the twin girl from the famous light novel and animated series Re: Zero – Starting life in another world.
While it’s clear that one sketch is much more refined than the other, suggesting that it might belong to 14-year-old Kori, it’s a good surprise to see so much love for the world of Japanese anime. from two young children outside of Japan. Still, that hasn’t stopped people debating the quality of the works online, with Japanese people joining the conversation with their opinions on the two sketches.
“These are great! “
“Rem’s is drawn with the maturity of an adult.”
“I could never draw like this when I was a kid.”
“He made Goku’s thick neck well.”
“Maybe they can be animators in the future? “
“I bet these are traced.”
“Who cares if they’re traced?” It’s not like they’re selling art for commercial purposes.
“Those people who complain about it being drawn are just jealous that they can’t draw like that.”
“Why does it matter if it’s copied?” A lot of people copy the art they love when they start learning to draw. It’s all about the fun.
“What shocks me the most is the fact that they know Rem from Re: Zero!”
While some anime purists refused to tolerate the practice of copying artwork regardless of the children’s ages, others were just happy to see two young people having so much fun with the genre. And isn’t that what it is, really? A child who puts in the time and effort to complete a task while expressing their passions is something every parent would be proud of, no matter where they are from.
