Statement
A catastrophic earthquake hit Japan on March 11, 2011. Not only did this earthquake kill many people, but it has also called attention to a nuclear power plant explosion without precedence. This horrible tragedy occurred as a result of this society’s reliance on nuclear energy. Responsibility for this has thus been transferred from the adults to their children. Those who are born into this world are instantaneously burdened by an atrocity of whole-world magnitude. They are also required to save it. We must now face a new reality in order to live in this world.
Through images of children wearing such costumes as those of Superman or Sailor Moon, I am expressing indirectly problems that the world now faces.

I went to Japan earlier this year, in April. There I got a flyer with this image and I adored it so much that I put it on my wall when getting home. 
Then, just now, as I was browsing dA, I saw your most recent work and thought there was a similarity in the style. As I then went to look at your gallery, I saw that it was indeed you who created this as well.
I really love your art, keep up the fantastic work!

This is wonderful! almost as if it were lovable and ominous at the same time. Difficult feelings to convey into one piece.
