The skyrocketing popularity of fictional English Teacher Ellen Baker has led her to the inevitable exposure to Rule 34. But Baker’s case is special and different; she was meant to be a tool in helping Japanese students hone their mastery of the English language, a feat that has only started to develop in the recent years.

Propelled by a single Tweet that started it all, soon, every Japanese illustrator was churning out fanart after fanart of Baker. The gaijin illustrators were not far behind.

Consequentially, Rule 34 or more commonly called ‘hentai’ (perverted) pics of Baker also sprung around, in every fetishes you can think of.

This is where Denchubo, Baker’s illustrator, aired his concerns.

“It has become a hot topic. I’m very happy, but on the other hand, worried, because they are teaching aids for schools. I’ve also become worried about whether or not I’d get bad impressions from people like parents and guardians who would find such objectionable parody of content meant for schools.”

Baker was meant to be an educational tool and her association with less than chaste and modest images may bring negative impact not only to herself, but to the entire New Horizon English textbook franchise.

W... what is this?! Those pictures! I don't do those kind of things! Denchubo was particularly concerned about possible backlash from parents chancing upon the proliferation.

This is certainly not the first time where character creators and illustrators aired concerns about R-18, porn and hentai depictions of their creations.

However, it should be known that illustrating Baker that way is not forbidden at all. It however, should adhere to certain guidelines and proper content tagging, as directed below:

There are some, but not all people that feel uncomfortable in certain (pornographic) illustrations (about Ellen Baker).

However, if parents and students are excessively exposed to inappropriate depictions of the characters in the textbook and trigger uncontrolled submissions of inappropriate content, it might create a negative impact among the academic community.

In the worst case, it may lead to tarnished reputations of the book series, the illustrator Denchubou and the publisher Tokyo Shoseki.

If posting R-18 content (of characters based from New Horizon), the illustration must not be accessible to minors by imposing viewing restrictions, and the tag ‘NEWHORIZON’, ‘New Horizon’ and other similar tags should not be used.

Other viewers or concerned persons can help by applying or modifying existing tags to illustrations as appropriate.

Requirement: For risque illustrations where browsing restriction is mandatory

In the Terms and Conditions (of Pixiv), such illustrations that fall under this group must impose viewing restrictions. See articles for Terms of Use for R-18 and R-18G (G is guro, or gore, mutilation, etc)

Recommended: Optional, but appropriate to impose browsing restriction

Although it does not infringe Terms of Use, some illustrations may contain sensitive elements that may be inappropriate for minors.

For example:
– Wearing erotic clothes
– Undressing
– Clad only in underwear
— Or illustrations of no underwear or total (artistic) nudity
— Other illustrations that may cause discomfort or emphasize nudity, wearing or exposing underwear, it may be necessary to impose viewing restrictions in this case.
– Indirect or implied genitalia exposure
– Illustrations that subtly suggest or imply sexual activity or violence
— Even if there are no intended targets of violence or the illustrated character simply wields a weapon, viewing restrictions may be imposed optionally
– Mere exposure of buttocks, chest or thighs, drawn in emphasized angles or methods

The criteria above may be modified or added to as necessary.

If you feel unsure in applying viewing restrictions or where it stands, rely on your best judgment if the illustration warrant restrictions or not.

As always, tags exist to label and segregate illustrations properly. Use it.

The New Horizon textbook is not for entertainment nor pasttime. It is used as a national education tool for students.

Please keep that in mind.

Rumors of Pixiv banning such illustrations out of respect were eventually disproved, with the release of the abovementioned guidelines. Stick with it so all students, perverts and teachers alike can enjoy the goodness that is Ellen Baker.

It is a wise decision, because as we have seen, enforcing modesty upon fictitious characters is already a lost cause.

KING OF PERVERTS, DO YOU HAVE ENOUGH BRAVERY?!

Not enough? Head to the site that celebrates defilement of everything that exists.

We’ve seen Kashima of Kantai Collection violated similarly in her tenure as a mascot cashier for Lawson. Please, let’s not have Miss Ellen end up like this.

If y'all didn't practice restraint, this could be where she might end up; A minimum wager with a kindred spirit. What good could possibly come out of this?

Well, there’s this thing that anything about Ellen Baker MUST include some English, or dialogues entirely in English. After all, that’s the whole point of her existence, right?

In an oasis in the sea of illustrations that’s exclusively Japanese, finally, an increase of content written in the global lingua franca.

And the Japanese won’t be able to bring up nonproficiency of English as an excuse anymore.
