This image can be used in educational encyclopaedia articles about 
anime/manga, (female) toplessness, contemporary art, fictional landscapes, 
depictions of humans in art, art produced on computers, debates 
surrounding any of these topics, and almost certainly many other uses too.

It therefore seems to me to be a very good example of educational material 
that Commons should be hosting.
