0.00 avg. rating (0% score) - 0 votes
Greetings, anime fans, martial arts aficionados, fighting game devotees, and enthusiasts of all things about anime, martial arts, video games, and fighting tournaments. Antoni here with another written entry. It is no secret that I revel in my fourteen seven-anime-character martial arts team AU headcanon, as I have been developing this concept since a year ago. However, this concept has been tried and tested from childhood to adolescence to adulthood. From 1998 to 2009, I have been traveling with my family and by myself on a couple of occasions to various locales, encountered different television stations, and played a good chunk of fighting video games. Cebu and Manila in the Philippines; Oxford, England in the United Kingdom; Hong Kong; New York, New Jersey, Minnesota, California, Florida, North Carolina, and Hawaii in the United States of America were among the many destinations my family and I traveled to, especially when it came to searching for anime that I still hold dearly to this day. Whenever I tuned in to ABS-CBN, Adult Swim, Animax, The Anime Network, AXN, Cartoon Network, the Funimation Channel, GMA-7, Hero TV, QTV, RPN 9, Studio 23, Solar TV, Toonami, and even on YouTube, I have always kept my mind open to the characters I enjoyed the most and delved into a lot of the fan-related discourse on various anime and pop-culture magazines. Bulking this passion for anime with fighting video games I played on Play Station 1, 2, and 3 as well as in the arcades such as Tekken, Street Fighter, Mortal Combat, and King of Fighters also helped to feed the ever-burning flame. All of this led me to create the pipe dream of wanting to be a voice actor for anime and video games and even want to go the direction of announcing, being the performing arts aficionado I have always been. However, I am glad to have taken a more objective route with the visual media I care for the most in written-discourse and video-review forms. Cutting this long prelude short, I want to thank my family and extended family from the Philippines to the United Kingdom to the United States of America to Canada to various parts of the world for encouraging me to be open-minded, passionate, and maintain high interest in anime, martial arts, and fighting video games. I owe it to each and every one of you for giving me the drive and determination to create my anime martial arts teams AU headcanon. This anime fan-related AU headcanon concept has been on the backburner for over two decades, especially since I started to become a full-fledged anime fan as a 12-year-old sixth grader in 2004. Now that I am a 32-year-old man about to finish my Master’s in American Studies degree in a couple of months, I am more determined as ever to cherish my anime martial arts teams AU headcanon and learn a lot about the martial arts I have been providing to the anime characters I have always enjoyed on the small screen.
While I truly revel in my fourteen seven-anime character martial arts teams AU headcanon, I realized that some of the team-ups did not make sense in hindsight. Granted, I am still happy and satisfied with a good number of the team-ups. However, some of them must have the switch-up treatment. This has also extended to some of the martial arts I gave to a good number of them, which did not hold up as well as I thought it did. After much reflection, reassessment, and rethinking, I present you the fourteen anime martial arts teams I have formulated consisting of seven anime characters per team. The selected characters come from Inuyasha, Baki the Grappler, Shura no Toki, Shootfighter Tekken, Hajime no Ippo, Fullmetal Alchemist, Solty Rei, Ultra Maniac, Wolf’s Rain, Texhnolyze, Geneshaft, Chrono Crusade, Samurai 7, Kiddy Grade, Hungry Heart, Full Metal Panic, GetBackers, and Cardcaptor Sakura. Some of the martial arts choices I have come up for some of the characters might seem bizarre and contradictory to some of the anime series’ canon universes. Nonetheless, I can roll with those choices and thrive at them with all of my being. Furthermore, I am arranging the team members from oldest to youngest that include their main martial arts, their birthdays, and their ages as of 2024. With that said, let’s get ready to rumble and may this be a full house in the anime martial arts tournament arena. Osu! Hajime!
The Splendid Seven (Sesshoumaru, Shuran, Inuyasha, Hakkaku, Ginta, Ayame, and Shunran)
The arena resounds in triumph and majesty when Sesshoumaru, Shuran, Inuyasha, Hakkaku, Ginta, Ayame, and Shunran take center stage. Opponents would be foolish to trounce two dog yokai brothers in Sesshoumaru and Inuyasha, three spiky-haired yokai brothers in Shuran, Hakkaku, and Ginta, and two auburn-haired sisters in Ayame and Shunran. Sesshoumaru’s German suplexes, Shuran’s torture racks, Inuyasha’s piledrivers, Hakkaku’s upward headbutts, Ginta’s downward headbutts, Ayame’s elbow slashes, and Shunran’s leopard blows can cause collateral damage to their opponents and leave them half-dead.

These seven musclemen kings have the Bengal tiger’s strength and resounding roars to crush stronger opponents. Baki’s airplane spins, Ryoma’s powerbombs, Takeshi’s powerslams, Kiibo’s guillotine drops, Alexander’s Full Nelson slams, Ichiro’s Cobra Clutch slams, and Ippo’s fisherman drivers obliterate their opponents’ bodies.

These seven sinewy chiefs snarl, growl, and prowl around the arena like vicious leopards devouring their prey.

The combination of Ichise’s, Kiba’s, and Kintaro’s brutally forceful leverage and Ran’s, Cheza’s, Ayu’s, and Nina’s accurately precise focus is guaranteed to bring them to victory. Ichise’s rear-naked chokeholds, Kiba’s ground and pounds, Kintaro’s sprawls and brawls, Ran’s hammerfists, Cheza’s spinning backfists, Ayu’s palm strikes, and Nina’s nerve strikes are guaranteed to leave their opponents’ heads spinning and struggling for survival.

Their combination of vice-like grappling and precise leverage constitutes their repertoire of attacks they can launch at anybody who dares challenge them. Shido’s Kimuras, Ban’s Gogoplatas, Ginji’s Omoplatas, Himiko’s supinating wristlocks, Satella’s double leg takedowns, Beatrice’s kneebars, and Kaname’s armbars effectively paralyze their opponents to ascertain the high degree of precision and leverage needed to overcome them.

The Quick Quantums (Kyuzo, Heihachi, Sousuke, Tessa, Mizuki, Natsumi, and Remmy)

It is no wonder why Kyuzo, Heihachi Hayashida, Sousuke Sagara, Teletha “Tessa” Testarossa, Mizuki Inaba, Natsumi Mizuki, and Remmy Levi-Strauss are always prepared to let their attacks fly like butterflies and sting like bees. When they launch their attacks, the arena’s audience would cheer for them with all of their might.

Their expansive list of defences and offences make them shine brilliantly. Hige’s bolo punches, Chrono’s uppercuts, Shinji’s jabs, Akemi’s heel roundhouse kicks, Eclair’s downward roundhouse kicks, Sakurako’s straight leg roundhouse kicks, and Rosette’s spin back roundhouse kicks can ensure accuracy and focus complete with all the substance and a good amount of style.

If Mas Oyama were alive today, he would give medals of honor to Kyosuke Kano, Rafael Rodrigo da Silva, Koji Jefferson Sakai, Hiroshi Ichikawa, Katsushiro Okamoto, Eriol Hiragizawa, and Li Syaoran for preserving the fierce determination that Kyokushin Karate is defined by. Should any foe knock these seven Kyokushin lords down, they will strike back with a vengeance. Kyosuke’s liver punches, Rafael’s roundhouse punches, Koji’s vertical punches, Hiroshi’s low punches, Katsushiro’s lunge punches, Eriol’s palm heel thrusts, and Syaoran’s backfist strikes incapacitate their opponents and leave them bloodily bruised.

The Funakoshi family can tie gold ribbons on Joshua Christopher, Edward Elric, Ryu Amakusa, Kyu Renjou, Alphonse Elric, and Kazuma Narusawa. This is because these dashing and loyal princes have preserved the honor, dignity, accuracy, and poise that define Shotokan Karate’s reputation and physical demands. Joshua’s knife-hand strikes, Edward’s spear-hand strikes, Toboe’s scissor strikes, Ryu’s palm-heel strikes, Kyu’s backfist strikes, Alphonse’s dropping backfist strikes, and Kazuma’s mountain punches successfully take down their opponents, not with abundant brute force but with sheer focus and excellent timing.

The Kwon Kung Fu Ladies (Meiling, Sakura, Kuniko, Tomoyo, Myu, Luna, and Tiki)
Believing in miracles is one thing. Believing that Meiling Li, Sakura Kinomoto, Kuniko Touya, Tomoyo Daidouji, Myu, Luna, and Tiki Musicanova can execute a mélange of combat techniques at exceedingly rapid speeds is something else to behold with one’s heart, mind, and soul. This is because these fine ladies master various Korean and Chinese martial arts with finesse and excellence. Meiling’s tiger claw strikes, Sakura’s crane beak strikes, Kuniko’s eagle claw strikes, Tomoyo’s knuckle strikes, Myu’s chestnut strikes, Luna’s palm-heel strikes, and Tiki’s backhand strikes can effortlessly inhibit their opponents’ mobility.

On the outside, their techniques that implement Korean martial arts and Brazilian capoeira appear akin to watching an interpretive dance show. Lan Fan’s crescent kicks, Kirara’s open cartwheel kicks, Azmaria’s hook kicks, Mei Chang’s compass crescent kicks, Leara’s scorpion kicks, Lumiére’s split kicks, and Claus’s butterfly kicks can overwhelm their opponents and place them in an utterly compromising situation.
