See the (wo)Manly Side of Ar Tonelico 3

Gar indeed


So, we've covered Ar Tonelico 3 a bit. While the name might remind you of how the main characters take off their clothes to become more powerful, that's not the point of today's address. Actually, well, at least I hope its not.

Meet Mute. She's a military leader and probably more of a man than every adolescent male in this game combined. But, if that wasn't enough... She'll be voiced by Ikue Ohtani. You might remember her as the Japanese VA behind Gash Bell or Pikachu... yes, Pikachu will be the voice of this muscular matron.
 
Oh (wo)man, this game just continues to sound like more and more fun.

I...don't know what to say. 
 
Except hearing that character with Pikachu's seiyuu would probably make me buy the game.

Kind of reminds me of Chun Li in Street Fighter 4 but with the steroid dose amped up.

I love Muscle women in and out of anime but this one might be a bit much.  Why not something more like this.
