Giving Kim his own Team would be a chance to see Jhun Hoon back... Perhaps...

It would definitely sound more interesting to have them in different teams even for SNK's buiness... (splitting them in 2 different DLC)

Maybe. They'll use Kim's old assets again from 14 and Shingo shares a lot of moves with Kyo so they'll have more resources to spare for new characters like "Jhun".
I wish Shingo comes back with Oswald, Shen Woo or Duo Lon while Kim brings back Jhun and May Lee (NOT Gang-il, Chang and Choi). But who knows.

Yes, this idea...
I'm not missing Chang and Choi either ^^; J. Hoon and May Lee would be a good choice!

Kimberly is interesting. Good to see she's not completely the archetype of the downtown-street girl doing breakdance and wearing streetwear/sportswear. Good progress !

The fact she's using Guy's fighting style is an interesting thing, but it almost completely destroy any chance to see Maki coming back in SF6 just like Lucia or Abigail did in SF5...
I hate this decision for this reason...

But with the SF6 paint effect, and this girl using it in her moves, you can clearly see how Capcom reacted to give some kind of "modernity" to their choices. KOF's Isla painting stuffs already looked like a tentative from snk to give some "Splatoonesque" "modern" colorful feeling to their game. like, "come on, kids, KOF is fun, right? right?" , but this tentative from Capcom kind of makes me tired of this. (only my point of view, with average english)

About Juri. I used to like her a lot in SF4, so so in SF5, Now I didn't even "blinked" during her trailer. nothing really impressed me or makes me want to go back to her. Even her asymetric bangs looked a bit exagerated here... Her gameplay is certainly good.
Also, I'm pretty sure some guys will enjoy the focus on her feets in 4K -_-;

But again for Evo, they have to surprise the audience I think. They cannot "just" come up with "Vanilla characters" like Ken or Cammy...

I like the idea People who don't really know GG and only followed the "Smell of the game" trends will react like :"Oh, SHE's so cute, this brand new character is my main now!" LOL

Anyway, glad to see him back, but it was definitely not what I was wainting for... the most.
I'm still missing my Jam Kuradoberi... Johnny...

But I suppose In 2022 you have to make your communication with more "unusual" fighting game archetypes... (when Johnny and Jam are old gamers archetypes)

Also, Bridget was kind of fresh when he appeared in the past, but now, I have this feeling it's a male May with pallet swap and different moves.
(Because of May new design)
One more cute character archetype of this kind would not be a priority for me... (beside the fact he's a guy)

Anyway, I'll wait for Jam... to put my interest back to this game.

Nah, I say Shingo and Kim will be in separate teams.

Reason 1, they only teased rough drafts of Shingo/Kim, meaning they haven't even finalized their 3d models yet.
Reason 2, they have 0 connection and have no agency in the storyline to be together (if DLC chars are canon as people told me).
Reason 3, SNK is literally reusing assets for Awakened Orochi team and SamSho team so they'll be making new assets for the next season.

I second that! For the same reasons.

The only possible way for them to team up would be in some kind of "Justice team", but it will not happen.
Giving Kim his own Team would be a chance to see Jhun Hoon back... Perhaps...

It would definitely sound more interesting to have them in different teams even for SNK's buiness... (splitting them in 2 different DLC)

Hey, happy to help.

For starters, "All right" is two separate words. The non-separate version would be "alright", but it's used in different contexts ("I'm doing alright").

Regarding the first arrow: It's "shooting AT the crowd". I'd change the whole thing to read: "We won't hesitate to shoot at the crowd, either!"

Second arrow: There's nothing wrong grammatically with this bubble, but using "whom" is a bit too fancy, I feel. They don't seem like the type of people to know when to use "who" vs. "whom" (that might be shallow of me to say, LOL. For all I know, they're very well-spoken and eloquent "thugs", LOL). Maybe something like "We're former martial artists who have been defeated by you in the past through cowardly methods".

Last arrow: I'd use "that" instead of "this" right before "cowardly method". Heck, just to not say "cowardly methods" twice, you could say "...I had to use those kinds of tactics".

Hope that helps!

Thanks a lot Graphicus!

Yes, they should not talk so "perfectly" and in eloquent way ^^

I will update the text as you told me!
In this kind of sittuation, I notice my english is understandable, but not perfect! :)

I'm working on the translation of Videl's Chapter, my short fan manga in Dragon Ball universe.
As some of you know, I'm not a native english speaker, and I'm really not sure if my sentences are right.

I prefer you guys check it before I post it officially. Thanks!

exemple, perhaps : "SOME former martial artists" etc.

I want to ask about this Abigail. Maybe could be just a Hugo spriteswap but I don't lose anything asking who made this and if it is online or not

Also, I keep my past question about which is the most famous Sakura out there, maybe it's POTS but I still read other opinions

If I remember well, this character is named "Birdie" (Yes, I know it's weird...)
Basucally it's a sprite swap of GM's Hugo.
I remember playing it in the past. (I think someone just renamed this Birdie into Abigail when he appeared in SFV)

Sorry, I don't have this character anymore. but it's not really worth.

Good job on these characters ! Gaira was good!

Will we see some more moves for Iroha? I hope she's not finished ^^
Even some custom, non-existing animations?

-I think she would need some more kicks, different poses from the existing ones. (all her kicks look the same^^)

-Perhaps giving her some command/special throw of your creation, some anti air throw as well? (A bit like Shermie?)

Good luck with the updates!

Yup; I'm like 99% sure that both the 2000 and 2001 winposes are him singing lyrics to various anime OPs and/or EDs. I'm just not sure what they might be.

Nice! It gives Shingo some Geeky/fanboy of classic anime.
I kind of like this detail :)

Here is a concept for the special intro vs Sakura I plan to add:

Nothing here is final, I might decide on something else, but I think this would work pretty well.

I've been otherwise finishing up sorting through his various voice rips; I even figured out how to rip from Dreamcast games so that I could get rips of KOF 1999. No, not the first game in the NESTS saga, I'm of course talking about The King of Fighters: Dream Match 1999. Yes, Dreamcast has two games named KOF 99.

Anyways, I ripped those voices because they're much higher quality than the compressed and tinny-sounding sounds used in the Neo Geo versions. It's unfortunate that SNK didn't use any of the higher quality recordings featured in the console ports of this era for the UM games, but it's likely that they simply lost that data.

The 98 rips will be the primary source I'll be drawing voices from, but I'll also naturally have to use stuff from other games for moves/winposes/etc. that Shingo didn't have yet in 98. This lead me to checking out rips from KOF All Star (since Takehito Koyasu—Shingo's VA—is one of the very few VAs who was not purged and replaced by nuSNK for games starting with KOF XIV), and I found a really cool voice sample that is a really nice showcase of Koyasu's range.

I'd love to find some way to use it, but I don't actually know what he's saying, and there are unfortunately no translations of All Star dialogue that I could find. If anyone happens to be able to translate it, I'd really appreciate it.

And on the topic of translation: did you know that Shingo has a bunch of references to mecha anime in his voice lines, beginning with KOF 99? I was able to recognize a few obvious ones, but I'm like 99% sure a few of his other voice lines are references to... something. I just don't know what. I'm planning on doing something a little special to celebrate these references in the character, so I want to make sure I'm getting everything.

winpose where he starts singing, KOF 2000 said:
拳にやどた、命の炎が...あいて、まだ終わってないて!
Kobushi ni yado ta, Inochi no honoo wo ga... Aite, mada owatenai te!
"The flame of life, enchanted by my fist... Wait, it's not over yet!"

winpose where he starts singing, KOF 2001 version said:
赤、青、黄色、紫の、拳にやどだ...あ、まだだのに。
Aka, ao, ki iro, murasaki no, kobushi ni yado ta, a, mada da no ni.
"Red, blue, yellow and purple, enchanted by my fists... Ah, not yet."
These are all sourced from the SNK wiki, and as such can't be relied upon as exact, correct transcriptions of the dialogue. An additional point of difficulty is that for the quotes I was able to recognize, Shingo's rendition is not 100% accurate to the original quote (for example, his NESTS saga taunt has him quoting First Gundam's famous "Brightslap" scene, but Shingo says "not even my parents ever hit me!", where Amuro instead says "not even my father ever hit me!").

These two reasons made it pretty impossible to just Google the phrase and do some digging, but hopefully someone out there is able to recognize what the two remaining things are quotes of. If they even are quoting something...

I absolutely love all of that!

I liked 2000 song particularly... with my almost inexistant understanding of japanese language it always sounded like :
A song about the way of fighter/fighting... (because of "kobushi ni") then blablabla. then It's not finished yet (because of the "mada da" part)

Again, this version of Shingo looks more and more complete than ever...

Not sure if this one can be considered "forgotten" if people probably didn't know it existed in the first place. The name is just "Monster" and its essentially a fighting game with furry characters. Found it was a thing recently because I found three characters from it in MUGEN, if those are anything to go by, the gameplay is pretty fun.

Oh! I remember! Yes! I think most pre-steam doujin games can be considered obscure!
I was quite surpised to see mugen characters based on this game!
