ONE (Dark Matter) = Rokuro “Rock” Okajima (Black Lagoon)
Like ONE, Rock comes from a well-to-do upbringing, having lived a sheltered, moneyed existence prior to the events that landed him among decidedly colorful company. From white collar careers to running with mercenaries, these two share similar fish-out-of-water experiences that force them to toughen up and mature if they are to survive.
TWO (Dark Matter) = Motoko Kusanagi (Ghost in the Shell)
Kick-ass, strong-willed, and smart, both women demonstrate a confidence and decisiveness that commands the respect of their peers. Natural leaders, their physical abilities – strength, speed, agility – are far superior to the average human’s owing to technological enhancements.
THREE (Dark Matter) = Sakata Gintoki (Gintama)
Obnoxious and self-centered, they’re always looking out for number one but, when the chips are down, they can be counted on to come through for the team – quipping and complaining all the way.
FOUR (Dark Matter) = Lelouch V Britannia (Code Geass)
Natural blue bloods, deadly masters of the blade, they share an affinity for carnage – and a dark streak that may cause even their closest of allies to take pause.
FIVE (Dark Matter) = Radical Edward (Cowboy Bebop)
As the tech-savvy mascots of both The Raza and the Bebop, FIVE and Ed are kooky, lovable, and oh-so-dependable.
SIX (Dark Matter) = Jet Black (Cowboy Bebop)
The classic big guys with the hearts of gold, they come from similar backgrounds in law enforcement but now find themselves playing parental roles to some of their ships’ more “immature” crew members.
Android (Dark Matter) = Astro Boy (Astro Boy)
Far-future Pinocchio’s with shockingly similar do’s.
