      I gotta say it's funny that for a series called KING of Fighters, it's mostly Mai and the other ladies who are popular and well known. Mai's terribly overrated though.

      I learned it from playing Capcom vs SNK 2. I knew who Terry, Joe, and Mai were thanks to that Fatal Fury anime from the 90s, and I recognized Haohmaru as the cool samurai dude from Samurai Shodown (there was a SS arcade machine at my local Round Table growing up) EVERYONE else on the SNK roster I had no idea who they were. Eventually learned to love them in CvS2, then tried out KoF games via emulation and here I am today, huge KoF/SNK fanboy.

    Ya know, Mai's a real hottie and all, but the other SNK ladies (and the guys, if you like that) need more lewd love on this site.

    Eh, whatever, imma read me some Saigado stuff to fix that, at least he adds some variety into his work.
