From NetEase:

Chinese manga artist beauty becomes popular in Japan, quickly wins over otaku

Summary: Recently, a Chinese female cartoon/anime artist named Xia Da, owing to her delicate and refined drawing style and her refreshingly bright appearance, has become the love of Japanese otaku and known as “China’s cutest female anime artist”. Recently, with the manga she created 《子不语》 [“Zi Bu Yu”] officially entering Japan, it became the only domestic original manga to have become domestically popular and then enter Japan’s top manga magazine.

Comments from NetEase:

网易四川成都网友:

Really pretty.

网易美国网友:

Too pretty, too cute, marry me!

网易黑龙江大庆网友:

Hehe, why is it that all I see is “pretty girl + Japan”?

网易天津网友:

As long as it is a pretty girl, NetEase’s perverts will definitely come out in full force.
NetEase’s Second Law.

网易欧洲网友:

Why is it popular in Japan?
Becase Japan is full of perverts?

网易广西柳州网友:

Is there going to be a “Xia Da Gate” incident later?

网易广东广州天河网友:

I swear, if NetEase does not close the comments, I will never come to NetEase ever again! Simply a bunch of animals!!!

网易火星网友:

Perverted Japanese pigs definitely like this type of female character. I hope there won’t be a day where we see her being tormented in a pornographic film!!!

网易欧洲网友:

It is still too early to tell if she’ll become an artist. This so-called pretty girl is just a child. Our [Chinese] people need less self-consoling and more clear heads.

网易湖南吉首网友:

The look she has in those photographs is like my wife 10 years ago…too bad my wife now has also become a stereotypical gossipy and nagging middle-aged woman.

网易辽宁沈阳网友:

Japanese high school schoolgirl uniforms cannot simply be worn, especially by such a pretty Chinese girl. It’s better to leave it to Japanese high school schoolgirls. The implications attached to Japanese high school schoolgirl uniforms these days are not so good.

网易贵州铜仁网友:

Supported by a perverted people, this girl is so sad/pitiable.

网易江苏扬州网友:

I faint, doesn’t look like born in 1981 no matter how I look at her.

网易浙江金华网友:

Xia Da, not bad, being able to do what one likes to do, pretty fortunate.

网易广东梅州网友:

Truly pretty, but you must not go to Japan and end up filming that “thing” [porn]!!!

Through her tireless translation of popular Chinese internet news and phenomenon, her English has apparently gotten dramatically better. At least, reading and writing-wise. Unfortunately, she's still not confident enough to have written this bio, about herself, by herself.
