I like it. Not sure about the metal design in the sleeves but overall I like it. I knew Nomura wasn't going to dissapoint. And most important, the cotton candy hair is still the same.

Slightly better view of the shield in the second picture.

Is her shield... the logo?


Dunno, but it looks like she has a necklace or something shaped like the logo.


^ beat me to it. It sure looks like the logo.


Question is how/when/where she got it. It'll probably just be a "forged by chaos" thing.

I'm only as good as you allow me to be.

one shoulder pad, oh you nomura.

I don't know what the heck is wrong with you people.
That armor looks much more practical than whatever characters like Ashe and Lulu wear.
It actually looks like something that is designed to, you know, PROTECT the wearer.

It makes sense since she's already using a shield.

Every crime-fighting superhero needs to wear their symbol on their chest.

I remember from the presentation they said something about how the monsters are mostly chaos infected, so I would assume it happened to Light too..

I like it even though I also think it's overdesigned........I love Gundam to death so shield doesn't matter, arm parts look weird and don't like the cape, looks better without it IMO.....

Are you blind?

Look at the chest piece. Look at it carefully. It's IMPOSSIBLE to bend in something like that, it restricts evasive movement.

I hear its amazing when the famous purple stuffed worm in flap-jaw space with the tuning fork does a raw blink on Hari Kiri Rock. I need scissors! 61!

Knights used heavy armour. Why?
Because they had to take as many blows as they could before they died.
Lightning is supposed to survive, so she should wear something that, you know, allows her to dodge attacks.
