Three Taiwanese politicians combine politics and anime to create a memorable Spy x Family Cosplay.
It’s a good thing that the Forgers are an extremely unconventional family, it’s not surprising that nobody would think that to see Spy Family cosplayers be elected officials.
Reddit reports that there are three Spy and Family cosplayers, Anya, and Yor, who made waves on TikTok for their portrayals of Loid as well as Taiwanese political people. The post states that the person cosplaying Loid is Tseng Wen-huh. Lai Pin Yu is the co-spy of Yor. Huang Jie is Anya. In the picture, each character has their own ‘weapon’ of choice: the Lord cosplayer is holding a newspaper since they are spies who collect data, the Yor cosplayer is holding her gold needles and Anya’s cosplayer is holding a magnifying glass. Interestingly, although Loid and Yor appear to be fake couples in the anime, Tseng and Lai are real-life partners.

Tseng serves as the Miaoli County Councilor and has helped expose corruption. Tseng became an independent candidate in 2020 and resigned from the New Power Party after a leak of audio revealed that the former chairman Huang Guo Chang had criticized Tseng for his talents, believing that he wouldn’t be able to win the party by himself. Tseng stated that the ideals of the NPP have changed drastically, and he could not remain.
Lai is a part of the Democratic Progressive Party and is popular for her support of the cosplay and anime industries. Lai was detained in 2014 after protesting against the Sunflower Student Movement. The protesters opposed the trade deal between Taiwan and the People’s Republic of China, believing that it would increase Taiwan’s vulnerability to China’s influence. Lai, in addition to Yor from Neon Genesis Evangelion, has also cosplayed Asuka Langley Soryu from Sailor Moon and Asuka Langley Soryu from Neon Genesis Evangelion.
