    Maybe they could convert this into an anime.

  2. bertodecosta says:

    While gamers got Project X Zone, comic book fans get this. (Gamer’s) Fan service everywhere.

  3. Kori-Maru says:

    The World’s Unite series looks promising but I wish there was a few Virtua Fighter reps to match up with the Street Fighter cast in the comic.
