Have you seen Jormungand? If the answer is no, then go do that right now! All right, now that you’re up to speed, let’s talk about my two favourite characters and how I’m going to shoehorn them into a spin-off series.
What’s going on?
I was holding off on this spin-off idea until I had republished my Jormungang reviews, but I’m going to be changing things up a little around here and that will be a part of it. More details on that in my Author Journey post tomorrow, if you’re interested. So, this was another title that I watched as part of my Anime A to Z challenge. Surprisingly there aren’t too many series that begin with J, but that doesn’t matter when this is what you’re left with. There are so many cool characters in this series that you’ve got to do something pretty special to stand out, so you know that this is going to be worth it.
What’s the pitch?
Koko and Kasper Hekmatyer had an interest in acquiring access to a particular set of weapons. The only problem was the person who held the keys was a reclusive billionaire who rarely left his island. Of course, he regularly shipped in large groups of girls to keep him entertained. This led Koko and Kasper to agree to a joint venture where they would each add a girl to the next boat and get what they needed that way. Of course, that meant that Koko sent Valmet and Kasper asked Chiquita to go. There are absolutely no guns on the island, but as both are skilled with blades they should be able to make it work.
They arrived on the island expecting to relax in the sun and fend off the occasional advance, but little did they know, this reclusive billionaire has some pretty twisted interests and they are soon being hunted across his island by him and his bodyguards. What should have been a quick and easy mission has turned into a fight for survival in the most extreme version of a fox hunt. It’s a good job both are always itching for a fight.
Where did the inspiration come from?
In the first season, Valmet caught my attention and not just for her incredible body. She was awesome and I’m glad that the final arc focused on her getting her revenge for her old squad that had been massacred. There was another that demanded some more screen time and that was Chiquita. Well, season two took care of that and showed us just how much of a badass she is, too. As soon as I finished the series, I knew that I needed to see something with these two in. They don’t exactly get along, but there is a mutual respect. I think that if they were thrown into a crazy situation, it would be awesome watching them fight back. It would be like Rambo in bikinis…
