US Marines uses Waifu to Recruit

Marinha Americana usa Waifu para Recrutar Jovens

US Marines uses Waifu to Recruit! No more just Japan with its otaku posters to recruit young people into the country’s self defense forces, the United States of America is also using waifus!

It all started when a certain twitter acc posted this photo on twitter, saying that he found this when he saw a US Marine recruiting booth:

The image above was found at a US Marine recruiting booth. The photo went viral on Twitter with many people pointing out that this girl was Violet from the anime Violet Evergarden (I honestly think it’s a random anime girl).

Many people started to doubt the veracity of this, so the author of the original tweet published another picture, this time of the booth itself with the poster, according to the person who took the picture, this is in San Francisco, California.

The illustration in question was made in September 2020 by artist Daredragon (who is no longer active on his social media), who is an artist from Indonesia, people have been trying to get in touch with him to find out if he got paid for it.

But on the artist’s Deviantart page, he posted this here as the title of the illustration: “Comm2020: New US Marines Recruiting Poster”. There is a theory that a recruit who paid for the artwork and uses it at these events.

The illustration above is in turn based on a famous US Marine recruitment poster, which replaced the soldier with the anime waifu:

About the recruitment poster, the person who posted the pictures said that it is real, it was really there, he just can’t say if it is official, but we have this profile here, of a person connected to the marines that makes it seem that he was the one who prepared the poster:
