So here are my suggestions for who should be what in TF2. It did occur to me that I can just plonk the cast of Coyote Ragtime Show down.. but let’s not do that. Too easy then.
Kagura from Gintama
She can run really fast, jump high, talk funny and beat people with a large stick. Though reporting correct information may be a bit difficult for this lovably moe-parodying loli… one of my favourite characters from my favourite series for one of my favourite classes.
Imagine Shinpachi as an Intel briefcase and Kagura jumping off the roof path of 2Fort… fits!
Revy from Black Lagoon
There are tonnes of anime females which fit into the soldier character, including Motoko from GitS, Mao from FMP etc because fighting females are a standard anime character type. Nevertheless, to fit with the rocket launcher, shotgun and warmongering, bloodthirsty personality, we picked Revy, who does essentially that in Black Lagoon. Badass.
She’s using a sniper rifle in this picture but I distinctly remember she used an RPG sometime.
Kannagi Ayane from Kaze no Stigma
The only flame-shooting girl I can think of at the moment. Wait, in Black Lagoon there was a flamethrower girl as well wasn’t there? But Ayane is considered significantly more attractive, being a high schooler and tsundere. Instead of the hatchet, she has the Enraiha. I don’t really fancy Ayane though just like I don’t use the pyro much. And I realised I should’ve used Shana. Oops.
At least she’s cooler than Shana.
Heavy Weapons Guy
KOS-MOS from Xenosaga
Xenosaga is an anime. Anyway, there exists no female with heavier weaponry than KOS-MOS, though it is debatable whether she is female. Her huge-ass minigun is certainly the key factor for her selection as the new Heavy Weapons Girl. As a medic player, I would rather uber a nice KOS-MOS than a fat-lard.
More HW than the HW guy!
Nice Holyfield from Baccano!
Nice is a bit obscure as she’s from Baccano, and is a one-eyed, heavily-scarred, charming explosives expert. She’s so hardcore she hides grenades in her eye-socket and bra. Surely the demowoman!
Even the eyepatch is on the same eye.. striking resemblance.
Yoko from Gurren Lagann
Who else? Seriously, Yoko is the defining sniper (though not the most realistic one) of the year 2007. We would be very pleased to see her babies bounce too.
The shades match too. I hate to use the Sniper but if the character model was Yoko, maybe I’ll use it all the time.
Miyuki from You’re Under Arrest
I had trouble coming up with good engineering girls. Kohran from Sakura Wars was one of the candidates, but I settled for Miyuki because I like her better. It would make more sense for her to be a player in Halo though, since you get to drive in that game.
It would be hard to imagine the current Engineer being yaoi with a Soldier, but Miyuki is OK.
Sakura from Naruto
I wanted Yanagi from Flame of Recca at first but I doubt you n00bs would know her. Anyway, the medic is a fighting hybrid class (I bonesawed many many people already) and Sakura can both heal and fight. So there.
Naruto is better than Bleach.
Wraith from Full Metal Panic: TSR
For the sneakiest class, we have the sneaky Wraith, who can disguise herself Mission Impossible style. She’s so spy-ish that we haven’t even seen her face at all. She also spies permanently on Chidori. And being from Mithril, you would expect her to be well-versed in the art of assassination and sapping key targets.
Spoiler from the novel! It was hinted in TSR (ok, not hinted but SHOWN) that Wraith was a woman who looks pissed off.
Valve really should change the character models into these, and I’ll play TF2 forever. So what will your anime TF2 team be like?
