Daughter of Twenty Faces
« on: May 19, 2008, 03:24:08 PM »
On a somewhat related note, the above series features a young Japanese girl in the lead role who is, in many respects, what Kirika would have become if Altena had taken Prozac: a brilliant, charming young woman who can flip out like a ninja and has one heck of a traumatic upbringing. Best part of it is you actually get to see her BECOME this woman, because the show starts when she's 10 and ends (by the looks of it) when she's 18. I'd almost go so far as to say that this is an alternate universe Noir where instead of being raised by the Soldats Kirika's adopted by Lupin crossed with Roger from the Big O.

Highly recommended. And fanfict worthy!

I know not whence that came.

Humm, humm, I think I already posted the Kirika and Chiko similarity in the BT lookalike thread... The show is awesome btw. And Chiko is voiced by Hirano Aya-sama. %)

This show seems to have a few different names, hard to keep track. ??? I've seen the first episode but will wait until I see some more before I offer an opinion.

I've seen four so far:

- Chiko
- The Daughter of Twenty Faces
- Nijuu-Mensou no Musume
- Heiress of the Phantom Thief

Plus, any combination of the first one and the rest. :)

Btw, why is this thread in the Noir forum? Only because of the similarities? I thought that non-BT series are discussed on the ET board...

Episode 6 was heavy sh*t btw. :-\ I don't think
Spoiler: show
that Twenty-Faces is dead, however. And neither is Angie. I think she'll return later as Chiko's nemesis. If it were Bee Train anime I would've said "as a psycho lesbian stalker" but with Bones, I know better than that. :D And Skipper may also survive but the chances aren't as high.

Probably because Section was comparing it to Noir...something I'll forgive him for one of these years *coughs*.

(Actually, I'm coughing because I have bronchitis. I.e., I'm actually not as mad as I would be were I healthy. I.e.... *cough*.)

Very much so.
 
And I'm having V for Vendetta flashbacks when Twenty Faces mentioned that he wanted to create another person like himself...

I'd move it if I could, but I can't so I won't. Nyah.

Yay, Chiko went back to school! Now all she needs is a blond French girl who'd whisk her away to Paris to start a suggestive love-hate relationship. %) But no, instead she get two rivals: a badass detective and a "jealous-but-good-in-her-heart" schoolgirl. :-\

And could that robot guy thing possibly be Twenty-Faces or someone from his team?

Now the ED animation makes some sense... Not exactly the direction I was hoping for though.

Spoiler: show
I think it's too soon to be one of the teammembers. It's just an unrelated ancestor to the E-Frame.

Heh, E-frame. :D Does that mean that Neosapien ancestors are on their way, too? 8)

The blue pendant woman must be Mireille in disguise.

Has anyone seen the novels with the Acheki and Twenty Faces? The fat detective, on the other hand, is too hopeless to be a team member,

Spoiler: show
but Twenty faces probably left some hints for him so he'd be on the train to bring Chiko back to safety

Man, that was a good show, I wish I'd had the sense to see more of it

Actually, I meant Akechi. ^^ That guy just radiates badass IMO.

...oh, and so does Chiko after all her training. ;)
