I like her a LOT. Maybe it's for her voice and her attitude, looks like she's angry, and she likes to win. She was hard to use at first but she became one of my principal characters.
i liked her at first. i had fun kicking my friends' asses with her when i first learned how to use her ... then there was the period i stopped using her, and the short period i got my ass beaten BADLY by a turtle Maki player. THE ASSHOLE GOT HIS FRIENDS TO TAP ME ON THE SHOULDER RIGHT BEFORE HE DID HIS GOD DAMN LVL3 THROW SUPER ARGH!!! naturally, i turned around, thinking it was my friend and that something was wrong, but no one was there except for my opponent's friends -- my friend was across the arcade, talking to someone he hasn't seen in a while, and when i turned back around (this all took about less than a second), i heard Maki's warcry and my guy was being mangled (it knocked him out)
now ..... i can't bear to play as her or even look at her any more -_-

I'd love to see a new Final Fight with both Maki & Guy in it (along with the rest of the cast, Haggar, Cody, Carlos, etc...) doing SoR style team up attacks. Bushin tag power!
New Final Fight would be more than welcome, and it could have a nice home on the GBA. Heck, even if they redid Final Fight 2 with a CvS Maki sprite (a la the Alpha form of Cody and Guy) I'd want it!
And yeah, Maki rocks and all, and nice fan art. And I still like Mai, too...:)

I love Maki as a fighter, she's quite original, very surprising (again a human opponent, since she's completely useless against the CPU) but.... but.... SHE'S SO DAMN UGLY!!!
She made me understand how I was wrong to call Sakura a gorilla... how can you find sexy a girl with this stupid victory pose where she says ha-ha-ha-ha-ha with this stupid expression on her face?
And the before match again Mai... how can she tell this to Mai? Has she ever seen a mirror?
Anyway, I'm quite happy she's in the game, at least she has the personality of a fighting woman (ahem... Sakura...), and I'm sure she would hang up with King much more than Ryo. (speaking of what, it would be so great to have Poison in that game... with, King, the transvestite team)

Sakura Ganbaru isn't official, but Capcom loved the thing so much that they actually took things from it and MADE it official.
Things from Sakura Ganbaru that Capcom took and ported to the official storyline include Karin in her entirety, Sakura being Dan's not-so-student student, and Blanka saving Dan's life when Dan was a child. There are probably more, but there are a few things they didn't port (Cammy from Sakura Ganbaru is quite different from official Shadaloo Cammy, for one thing).
To reiterate, the comic was never official or even close to it, but AFTER the manga was made and released, Capcom saw it and loved it so much that they took chunks of it for use in the official story (not all of it, though, but a whole lot).
