I actually checked out the first Karas anime movie before the release of TVC, so I was surprised when he made the cut to the game... I didn't realize he was Tatsunoko at the time. Anyway, I thought the movie was decent, but not what I'd call one of my favorites. I think Karas is maybe a little too intricate as a design visually, and lacks personality in some ways... but otherwise, he undeniably is a badass character in Tatsunoko VS Capcom. Awesome animations, moveset, and overall fighting style. He fits into Tatsunoko VS Capcom perfectly as one of the only "dark & mysterious" fighters.
