Oh man, if I entered I would do the Symphony of the Night intro just to see if I could get away with throwing a wine glass at the ground at the line "kudaran."

I would love to see THIS :)
and she could do it quite well

after this we can make second round with Emperor Wakamoto subbing some of Rie's character - I would love to see Taiga or Shana made this way

@Yarodomo
