If anyone knows who drew these and if they made more, please let me know. This is just amazing.

EDIT: Thanks for the info (All 3 of you)! This art was made by user TKG on pixiv.net. http://www.pixiv.net/member_illust.php?id=1364988 Note: you may need a pixiv account to view it.

Oh god I don’t deserve all these notes, this isn’t even my work. But thank you all for spreading this around. I hope to get just as many notes once I start publishing my own work. I hope you’ll like it!

I don’t think you guys realize how important Codename: Kids Next Door was.

The majority of our (basically) canonical couples were interracial, the greatest Supreme Leader the KND ever had was a female, and so many actually strong female characters like Numbuh’s 3, 5, 86, 362, and I even count Lizzie because of how chill she was about getting trapped in a mirror reality.

The undertones of respect Numbuh 86 had for Numbuh 362 even when, as far as the rules went, Numbuh 362 wasn’t in power and Numbuh 86 still obeyed her.

I’m also pretty sure Numbuh 1 was going through chemo, either that or he was just a bald child.

Lets not forget how there was never a moment in this show that made a snide remark or hint about the female operatives not being able to do something or it being too dangerous for them. The few times some jerk adult mentioned something even remotely insinuating they confronted the comment and called them out on how ridiculous it was, and then surpassed whatever stupid line was set.

Also, there was none of that “I won’t hit you because you’re a girl”, or “you can’t hit me I’m a girl”, everybody beat the crap out of each other, fought over the remote, helped each other out, and asked each other for help regardless of anything.

I’d screen cap for you but literally every episode has an example of it.

Screw writing “strong” women. Write interesting women. Write well-rounded women. Write complicated women. Write a woman who kicks ass, write a woman who cowers in a corner. Write a woman who’s desperate for a husband. Write a woman who doesn’t need a man. Write women who cry, women who rant, women who are shy, women who don’t take no shit, women who need validation and women who don’t care what anybody thinks. THEY ARE ALL OKAY, and all those things could exist in THE SAME WOMAN. Women shouldn’t be valued because we are strong, or kick-ass, but because we are people. So don’t focus on writing characters who are strong. Write characters who are people.” – Lori

based on this. i wanted a version with appropriate diversity and my kind of ladies.
