HERE COMES A NEW CHALLENGER, ASUNA YUUKI

View attachment 382350
  • Series: Sword Art Online
  • Original Publisher: ASCII Media Works (Publishing Company) / Dengeki Bunko (Publishing Imprint)
  • Character Theme: Crossing Field (Sword Art Online)
  • First Appearance:
    • Novel - Volume 1: Sword Art Online 1: Aincrad, Chapter 5 (April 10, 2009)
    • Manga - Aincrad Manga Stage.001 (September 27, 2012)
    • Anime - Episode 001. The World of Swords (July 7, 2012)

While Kirito probably makes more sense, due to him being the general protagonist of Sword Art Online, Asuna is about equal, or even superior to him, in terms of popularity when compared to him or even other SAO characters. She's another female fighter, too, which is always good to have. She'd fight similarly to how she does in Dengeki Bunko Fighting Climax, where she's a speedy and commanding swordfighter able to lay on pressure and close distance like no tomorrow.

Her series also inspired the likes of Teen Titans and Avatar: The Last Airbender, to give an idea of its influence.

I’ve been bringing up this series a lot, but I promise I’ll stop doing it constantly from hereon after this last bit.

Originally considered submitting "Cutie" Honey Kisaragi, but assuming someone else would do that later, I decided to go for an another 1970's magical girl before Usagi Tsukino (Sailor Moon) even existed, or in this case, an alien princess.

Job #34: New Magical Girl Fighter - Lum Invader


Lum Invader is the deuteragonist and female protagonist of the romantic comedy/slice-of-life manga franchise Urusei Yatsura, which was written and illustrated by Rumiko Takahashi for Shogakukan in 1978, focusing on a un-lucky teenage boy, Ataru Moroboshi, after he was randomly chosen by an alien race known as the Oni, who arrived on Earth to invade the planet by giving humans a chance to fight for it's rights by taking part in a tag-like competition, facing against the alien leader's daughter, Princess Lum herself, who he accidentaly proposed to, after winning a competition (having promised to Shinobu Miyake earlier), making her fall completely in love with him, even though she often violently electrocutes him whenever he flirts with another girl or insults her.

Urusei Yatsura sold about over 35 million copies in circulation and even received the 1980 Shogakukan Manga Award, making it one of the highest selling mangas of all time. It's first anime adaptation in 1981 has been credited for introducing the format of using pop songs as opening and closing themes in anime shows, alongside four theatrical films. It pretty much launched Takahashi's career, leading into other creations such as Ranma ½ (which we already have represented in a roster) and Inuyasha themselves (like how Dr. Slump started Toriyama's success and creation of Dragon Ball). It even influenced multiple other "geek gets girl" works including Tenchi Muyo! and Love Hina. Lum herself is so pretty popular that she even has her own life-size bronze statue erected at Ōizumi-gakuen Station in 2015 and appeared in clips of Matthew Sweet's music video "I've Been Waiting". A new anime reboot series has recently aired on Fuji TV in October 14th, 2022, about forty-one/41 years after the original's premiere.

In Anime FighterZ, Lum is capable of utilizing her powers of flight (able to soar in the air for a short period of time) and electricity (charging herself with electricity to shoot lightning bolts, fly either forward or diagonally upwards inside an electric aura to tackle her opponent and send out multiple super-charged shocks around herself by storing big amounts of electricity as her body glows blue/gold before shouting her signature "DARLING NO... BAKA!!!" aloud in one of her Level 1 super moves, working similarly to Thor's Mighty Tornado and Chun-Li's Kikosho). She can also increase her teeth and horns' size for stronger melee attacks (besides slaps/kicks regularly and pulling maces, axes, giant hammers or throwable chairs out of nowhere), heal herself with those same horns, summon her cousin Ten, who breathes fire in-front of her and even make use of her inventions/devices such as creating illusions to trick an opponent, bring inanimate objects or plants to life, use a supernova's subspace fragment as a detonating bomb, change the direction of gravity with G-Con, lock them in subspace, use electric dolls to cause them pain by attaching into their head, briefly increase her attack damage via strength pills, etc.
You know, what if Lum had a super where she summons Benten and Oyuki to help her out? One big team combination between the three of them. That could be her Level 3.

Here's two more Arcade Mode teams:

• On the Wrong Side of the Law (criminals): Luffy, Lupin, Tetsuo

• Dead or Alive (bounty hunters + a former one): Spike, Vash, Zoro
