Akira Kazama Rival Schools Art

Akira Kazama is one of the Rival Schools and Project Justice Characters.

She made her debut in the arcade version of RS back in 1997 and is playable in two forms, her normal clothes and her motorbiker suit with a few slightly different special moves. She uses mainly Tai Ji Quan as her fighting style with the addition of someTaikyoku-ken movements. Akira is the younger sister of Daigo Kazama, and a pretty badass girl. She was supposed to be a character in the cancelled Capcom Fighting All-Stars fighting game.

Akira Kazama is one of the characters in the browsergame Onimusha Soul too which was released in 2012.  Since no new Rival Schools game was released since 2001 though, she is more or less one of the many video game characters of the past

..at least for now

There are relative many official artworks of her and also some beautiful fan art and cosplays too, some even from 2013 which is pretty cool considering how old and quite unknown Akira Kazama is.
