It seems that fashion today is to launch plagiarism accusations to the game for smartphones developed by Shanghai Manjuu and Xiamen Yongshi, Azur Lane. The indication arrives on this occasion to an illustration of the IJN Naganami character, specifically in the next, where she appears reclining in a quite provocative pose.
If you wonder where the plagiarism was pointed out, it was not anywhere in the character, but in an element of its surroundings. Specifically, the design of the teddy rabbit on the left is completely identical to that of an official teddy available for sale in different online stores.
If the reader believes it is a random design of a stuffed rabbit, it turns out that it is not. That design is part of Yosuga's Multimedia Franchise No Sora: In Solitude, Where WE Are Least Alone, and is one that Sora Kasugano, the female protagonist, always carries. This design has even been used in several official figures of the character, such as that shown below launched in 2017 by the Alter company.
