    Charm Point:		The "hold" of her hair
    School Life:		Went to a different middle school than Asuka, but

    			Karina stood out.
    Private Life:		Karina's family of three consists of herself and her
    			two parents: her father, an international pilot, and 
    			her mother, a former stewardess that now manages a
    			boutique. Her father is tough, but cool and popular.
    			The nature of his job often keeps him away from home.
    			Her mother is a self-confident combination of wit and
    			beauty.  Karina is shocked at how her mother can keep
    			such a tight hold on her father through all his time
    			away and bring the family together.  Both her parents
    			don't have enough time at home; since elementary
    			school, Karina has been doing much caretaking at the
    			house.  She admits her one and only best friend is
    			her pet frog named Kero-pyon.
    			Ever since the summer of her first year of middle
    			school, when Karina incubated and then hatched him,
    			Karina has been walking around taking Kero-pyon with
    			her.  Kero-pyon is the only one who eases her mind.

    				Kero-pyon makes a fiery leap into Karina's
    				opponent at her beckoning. (This is the

    				than the one performed with the "weak"
    				attack button, Karina follows up with a
    				backwards somersault kick.
    			Somersault Shoot -
    				Karina jumps up, and as the name says,
    				performs a somersault kick.
    			Kero-pyon Set Up -

    				keeps a fiery aura until he is used in
    				a follow-up attack.

    				At Karina's beckoning, Kero-pyon performs
    				the Kero-kero Attack, then rockets Karina's
    				opponent skyward with a vertical charge.

    				At Karina's beckoning, Kero-pyon and a
    				legion of frogs charge forward on her
    				opponent as a small crest of water
    				follows them.

    				Karina's standard throw technique; she
    				holds the opponent close, knees her twice,
    				then lets her fall onto her back.

    Future Dream:		To become a female pro baseball player,
    			and play as an All-Star
    Charm Point:		Striking sense
    School Life:		She's cheerful, and she gets respect from the fact that
    			her one-track mind tendencies are reflected in the 
    			seniors; a serious girl with a good eye for spotting
    			trouble among the juniors.
    Private Life:		She usually spends everyday healthy.  She takes a blow
    			to her ego whenever her name "Mitarai" is misread as 
    			"O-tearai" (Lit. washing one's hands, but it also a 
    			term to refer to "toilet/bathroom"). 
    			Kiyoko gets a little angry and wants to do anything 
    			and everything she can to someone when she hears that. 
    			She also isn't fond of the name "Wild Girl Kyon-Kyon".
    			(Kyonkyon is the nickname of a famous recording artist
    			 in Japan, Kyoko Koizumi. I guess it's because of
    			 her name being Kiyoko, and it sounds like "Kyoko" 
    			that she's called such a thing.)

    				Kiyoko rushes in with a backhand swipe
    				of her mitt, then jumps and dives down
    				tagging her opponent with the energy-
    				charged mitt for several hits. This
    				can also be done in the air (in which
    				case she just does the second half of

    End Notes: This didn't take as long as the Rival Schools FAQ did, having
    remembered lot of those kanji I looked up from translating that. Well,
    hope you all enjoy, I might add Fumimaro in a future version if enough
    people want to know about him. See you around next FAQ!! ---- Batsu
    Version 0.2: Well, now having played the game (and surprisingly, through
    its simplicity it's pretty good!) I needed to make a few adjustments. 
    More to come! --Batsu
    Version 0.3: Just got Tetsuko and Genichirou... and they kick butt!
    ...but man, 20 hours of game play. Those who have the game remember to
    save it every time you play it! Whew. Well, catch you later. I'll
    probably add Fumimaro in the next version.
    Version 1.0: Added Fumimaro... that guy's kinda weird, isn't he? 
    Heh. Well... hope you all enjoyed it... if any new translations need
    to be made, I'll make them sooner or later. This is Ichimonji Batsu
    the Hot-Blooded Transfer Student signing off!
    Version 1.1: Updated my E-Mail address. I've gotten a chance to play
    Asuka 120% Final, and for the PS users, it's pretty good. Adding the
    coolest things about the Saturn version (Limited), and even letting you
    use Ichiko! She's cool since she's the "Dan" of the game. But nothing 
    really new as far as characters are concerned.
    Version 1.2: Dang, it's been a while since I've done one of these updates.
    Needed to fix some shaky, shaky translations, and some other tidbits I found
    out about the characters (Kiyoko especially). What possessed me to put in
    another update? Well, there's a page out there with an older version of my
    FAQ being used (at http://www.geocities.com/Tokyo/Bridge/7475/index.html),
    and I thought "Whoa... that FAQ needs some work!" Enjoy!  
    Version 1.3: Seeing that my FAQ has been used in yet other places, I have
    decided to make even more corrections and descriptions to make this FAQ
    more complete. This may very well be the last update until I find something
    even more glaring to correct.
