Akisame has received a rather neccesary upgrade...
About this creation
Name: Akisame. Unlike the others, he has no second or last names.
Nickname: The Bugman
Akisame had always been against the use of weapons. He prided himself as a capable martial artist who was able to defeat almost anyone with just the use of his own capabilities.
Lesorassk on the other hand, had finally accepted Akisame as a true fellow member of the team and knew for sure Akisame was putting himself in severe danger going out nearly unarmed. He challenged the red Bugman to a sparring match and won easily, thanks to his weapons. It was then that Akisame himself realised the flaw of his ways: Mastery over Weaponry was a part of being a Martial Arts Master too, and thus, Akisame entrused Lesorassk to teach him the ways of the blade.
After mastering the usage of a sword combined with a large underhanded knive, Akisame had the two weapons custom-made just for his personal use and also used his wages to equip himself with some upgrades. Now, Akisame feels more confident in his own skills then ever, but will not make the mistake of lettign his own arrogance fool him ever again!
This rather extensive upgrade of Akisame encompasses alot of things. His lower bosy is, save for the base of the waist, entirely new. Further upgrades include more spikes and blades troughout, better proportions, upgraded armor and ofcourse his new weapons.
This was all reached thanks to the incredibly harsh people over at ItB. They told me all that was wrong with this moc and made me uprade it into what you see here. That being said, this upgrade is a few months old already, so Akisame's look has already changed ever so slightly ;D
On another note, I'm not dead. Stay tuned for moar!
Impressive story, I like how you emphasized the fact that Martial Artists also have to be masters of not only using their hands and feet, but any tool around them. The design of the character and weapons is great too.
