Ok you know the drill.

Anyways, there's not many reasons why I prefer kof2k1 over it's predecessor. One of them is the elimination of abusable strikers. The other is Angel.

So why's Angel cool?

1. Just look at her, come on... really... she's giving Mai a run for her money.

2. Her moveset. It has to be one of the most original movesets I've ever seen. Her circle chain moves, are just cool since I have never seen such a moveset before. For the most part I find it awkward, but hey I have to give her mad points of playing unlike any other fighter I've come across.

So, to further prove my point about reason #1, I'll throw some pictures at you. Here it goes.

Also, if the pictures don't load, keep trying. My server has been going goofy lately.

Angel 1
Angel 2
Angel 3
Angel 4
Angel 5
Angel 6
Angel 7
Angel 8
Angel 9
Angel 10
Angel 11
Angel 12
Angel 13

It's my favorite game show!

She's very, very cool! I like the detail of the big boots (booTs I said), gives her an original look.

Thanks again for sharing these pics with us!

I hope she's a work in progress, because I absolutely love her character art and fighting style, but her sprite, especially her idle stance, just doesn't do anything for me. Among other things, why is her blouse zipped up on her sprite but not in any of her character art? It's not that I wanna see more boobies (well, I'd be lying if I said that wasn't a factor), she just looks weird with almost no clothes on her lower body and a blouse that comes all the way up to a straight collar around her neck. Also, you can't see her face at all. Anyway, I'm hoping for a sprite revision in the next game, and maybe give her a last name?

I'm sorry for all my bitching, but she is just so maddengly close to being my favorite KOF character ever, with only a few elements of her sprite getting in the way.

I still refuse to believe she's from Mexico. She doesn't look Mexican at all. Oh well, that's SNK for you. ;)

Those are really cool pics. She should make her outfit look like that one with the huge bellbottoms for 2002, with the proper color scheme.

Yeah, and the Japanese guys don't look Japanese, the Chinese don't look Chinese, the Americans don't look American...

It's not unique to SNK either, the Japanese manga/animation tradition creates mostly fantasy characters that don't have the racial characteristics of any race on earth. It's the understandable product of a culture that traditionally had no reason to think about racial characteristics.

Angels is the reasons why I'd get KOF 2k1, cause she just rocks alot. Her and Mei Lee, too...:)

But yeah, she does need a few gameplay and sprite animation polsihes to complete her and make her a truly rocking character. Still, mad points ofr orginality and style.

Eh??
What does that mean??? She doesn't look like Mexican at all??? Do you know how Mexicans look?? People from México is different, a person from the north of México is WAY TOO different from a person of the south...
People has different characteristics in México, it all depends of the region, and even so, people from the same region doesn't look the same all the time...

Not that I really want to get into this but... isn't this kind of a ridiculous rebuttle? I mean, yes speaking out against stereotypes is all good and nice.

The way you put it though sounds like you're trying to claim that mexicans don't look Hispanic. That's about as stupid as saying Japanese don't look Asian.

Though, yes she doesn't have to be Hispanic to live in Mexico. Though we all should know by now that country of origins in fighting games mean really little.

Mmmhh... I get what you mean, but it seems that you don't get what I mean...

Japanese people have very remarkable looks, they all have similar eyes (You know what I mean), but tell me one characteristic similar in ALL Mexican people...
What I'm trying to say, is that there is not a single characteristic (physically speaking that is...) that's present in all Mexican people, get it?

Let's see an example, I live in the south of México, does that makes me a little black guy? nope, I'm white and I'm 1.78 centimeters tall (and I have friends over here that are blonde, black, and ones that have very different characteristics, heck, I even know a couple of albino guys). My point is, not because Angel is from México, she has to look like something specific, I think there is a lot of variety over here.

This argument has done before. Its horribly stupid.
So, using this logic, if they make a character and is not blonde or black he is probably not American. Right?

I must be an SNK character too!

I love Angel! She's so unique! I still have yet to use her effectivley. But she's so cool! One of the best female designs out there!

BTW,I started a thread similar to this long ago,but it had to do with May Lee AND Angel.

Now! We need even more hot British fighting girls.

Oh, you're right! I'm a disgrace to my country! I need to go to the Gap right away and stock up on clothing that is five times as expensive as what I am wearing now and have been wearing for years!

Of course, I could be like Roy from Justice Gakuen and wear a shirt, tie, vest, jeans and basketball shoes.

Seriously, I understand Onslaught's point though I also agree that Mexican would not be the first guess of her race if I wasn't told.

It seems like pic 13 agrees with my NESTS=Western thoughts.

She's sexy, of course (if anything, she's trying to hard...the "cut away" pants should be a big clue), but right now she just doesn't intrigue me as a character. She was pretty much Igniz's crony in '01. Compare that to Mary, Mai, King, Yuri, etc.

Might have some promise, but I'll withhold my appreciation until I see more from her.
