So the lovely ladies over at GirlsDrawinGirls have "manga heroines" as their weekly theme going on now. Of course I cannot pass up an inspiring push to draft one of the baddest bad-asses of Japanese femme fatales. Battle Angel was a huge influence on me when I was a teenager, and really still is today. Alas - I am not a member of GDG, but I will post my hawt girl here anyways.
If you've never picked up a book from this series I highly suggest, nay, PLEAD with you that you do - even if you're not a fan of anime or manga.
