I think Giovanna is interesting... specifically because she's a character design who seems to be inspired primarily by FIGHTING GAME characters. One could make the case that her design uses elements from fighting game characters, exclusively. Her general appearance has obvious comparisons to Vanessa from KOF... and her wolf-spirit friend is similar enough to Unknown from TEKKEN. (Must add this to TFG's "If You Crossed" section asap.) The "paw prints" on the underside of her boots were also inspired by King's... King did it first, anyway.

Giovanna has some "90's vibes" going on. She's cool. Not so sure about the pants though. Her moveset is pretty fun and well-rounded, although I was expecting to be "wowed" a bit more, considering she's an ArcSys / Guilty Gear character. Finally, shoutouts to Giorno as well. JoJo references when?
