I was certain this character was a she... that's clearly a feminine face right? Trickery! It's not the first time SNK has done this, and they fooled me again. What's that quote? Fool me once... lol, I'll spare you. Just picture George W. saying it. Alrighty, a traditional Aikido fighter fits into Buriki One pretty well. Aikido is a deadly martial art and I happen know some techniques in real life quite well (since it's similar to Hapkido). Long story short, Aikido is an awesome martial art, and I usually love any Aikido character in fighting games...

But let's address the elephant in the room, yeah... Takato is a painfully plain and boring design. It's insane that she-he even got his-her own card in Card Fighters Clash. So obscure! In any case, you gotta be a real fan to even know who this character is. lol.
