Gah! I'm so torn! I honestly can't decide between these two!
I love the Gessen girls so much! Their backstories are heartbreaking, so seeing them as such a big loving family is so touching. On top of that all of them are so unique. I relate so much to Murakumo being shy, wanting to draw comics, and having an alternate personality as a defense. I love how Shiki can look the way she does and talk like a valley girl, but still be so sweet, smart, and kind as she is. Yozakura's got my favorite weapons and is such a responsible, motherly figure, but still tries to cut loose. Minori always makes me smile... until she cries. My face always matches hers. And Yumi, I admittedly didn't like at first, but she's gone through such great character development. I'm not kidding when I say that I almost cried like three or five times while playing through their story!
But the A.R.C. Angels are just so cool! I love that they all have weapons in their instruments rather than just using the instruments themselves, I love the kyou twins' hilarious identity crisis, I love how Tachibana is afraid to talk so Karasu offers to speak on behalf of her, I LOVE TSUBAKI'S AMP GAUNTLETS!!! Still, they're really relateble too. Ukyou wanting to be more free-spirited, Sakyou wanting to be more mature, (why are there TWO base players?) Tachibanna always being cautious of how she words herself, (and I think she digs giant robots from the cards I've seen) Karasu's "wild-child" attitude and friendly, playful disposition, (and she plays videogames)... I don't quite understand Tsubaki though. She want's to live alone, yet she joined a ninja team/rock band? I can only assume that if New Wave had a story, she would develop just like Yumi, and grow out of that loner state of mind.
* sigh * Ok, I think I've decided... Murakumo's my favorite character, I love all of Gessen, and they really do stir my emotions, like great characters should... but if I were to imagine all the New Wave teams available for a Versus game... I'd main in A.R.C. Angels. Their gimmick suits my style, their character traits are great, and theirs something that can be learned from each of them. Plus:
(I wanted to find the picture with Tachibana sitting on the giant robot's shoulder, but Google Images hates me)
