Bushido Blade 2


Page Updated:  Jan. 3rd, 2014

Tatsumi actually reminds me a bit of of Takumi from Initial D. While drifting cars and samurai fighting aren't exactly alike, the way Tatsumi's big eyes are drawn is definitely reminiscent of Takumi... not to mention his hair in some images.

For a "young fighter" type of design, Tatsumi was pretty cool in Bushido Blade. His blue "school" uniform works for him, although his odd yellow & black outfit is pretty damn ugly. lol. His fighting style in Bushido Blade 2 had a few unique moves and he was a solid all-around character.
