Dragon Garow Lee is a manga artist with a particularly adaptable visual style. He became internet-famous drawing mashup and doujinshi like One-Punch Man x Dragon Ball, and his sense of humor and ability to match the drawing style of so many different series landed him a gig with Shonen Jump Plus authoring the Dragon Ball Spinoff The Case of Being Reincarnated as Yamcha.
In recent years he’s stunned Japanese Twitter with elaborate group illustrations assembling characters from dozens of series around a central theme. This weekend he debuted this illustration for Mother’s Day depicting many of the most famous moms in anime and manga:
Readers will immediately spot mothers from many more popular titles like Castle In The Sky, Crayon Shin-chan, and Dragon Ball… but others will be harder to identify. For example, Neon Genesis Evangelion‘s Yui Ikari and Fullmetal Alchemist‘s Trisha Elric were dead prior to their stories’ beginning, so they never got much screen time and are harder to recognize. Toriel from Undertale is included, despite being from an American indie game. Others worth noting are Gundam’s Amuro, Puella Magi Madoka Magica’s Junko, Sailor Moon‘s Queen Serenity, and Clannad’s Sanae, but we won’t spoil them all for you.
Dragon Garow Lee previously did “fathers of anime” and “older brothers” illustrations in similar fashion:
