I'm off for Tokyo today. You know, Tokyo would be a fantastic setting for a story where Cass takes on the yakuza. I just typed that sentence and I'm already envisioning several set-pieces-- an all-out fight in a pachinko parlor in Kabuki-cho, a night time roof-top battle above some other part of Shinjuku, an outing with Steph to Roppongi where they meet some sleazy American dudes at a dance club and deal with them in a humorous way, more comedic relief in Harajuku where Cass experiences rori culture then things take a turn for the violent and weird when she fights a pair of amarori assassins, concluding with a thrilling climax atop the Tokyo Sky Tree. We need a cohesive plot to tie all of that together, right?
It would beat the pants off that Chris Claremont/Frank Miller Wolverine mini-series.
I doubt there's a single Cass-related item for sale in Tokyo these days. You know why? Because I BOUGHT THEM ALL! But I'll take a look and buy whatever I see, then tell you about it here.
Happy Holidays to all you Cass fans out there! And good will to the Steph supporters! And a Happy New Year to DC! Bring both of those characters back and make the season bright!
