Also can make a chick more badass because it's like "I'm so awesome that I can put aside potential humiliation and do what needs to be done."

One thing is reacting like a badass if you result stripped in the middle of a battle, if you overcome that then you're awesome. When it's you the one who comes with a striperiffic outfit the message is more like "i have boobs/panties and i'm kickass, you must obey".

A distraction by nudity doesn't have to be sexual in nature.

Aside from the fact she uses a sword, there's really no similarity to Signum.

Well, not entirely true; they both have the 'deadly and graceful' mystique about them, but that's not all there is to either of them, really.

Still not nearly enough to label her as "Signum 2.0" or "Signum Lite" or whatever.

Micaiah uses a sword, have a samurai-esque demeanor and is a "tall, dark and bishoujo" stereotype. Still there are some differences between her and Signum, the Wolkie leader isn't so openly entusiastic about battles.

To be fair, Signum is more Knight-esque than Samurai-esque =V

Still she have a pretty samurai-like behavior. Existing only to serve her master and treating battles and challenges as duty to honour the person she serves.

Knights of chivalry behave that way too. It's not exclusive to Samurais.

Cheers.

I think that after seeing the colored version, my opinion (which I've thus far not formed, since I wanted to get a better look at the effect than the B&W version showed), ends up in Kaijo's corner. Rather than panties, bloomers, or bikini bottoms, it looks like a cloth diaper. I think it's the color difference and the pinstripes making it look a little baggy. Maybe she's watched too much Ikkitousen and is just being Wrong Genre Savvy?

Yeah, I really have no clue how I feel about that. A rather odd choice for Barrier Jacket design.

No odder than some of Fate's choices.

Lutecia was obviously mentored by Caren Ortensia.

I find this pic very cute, poor Miura-chan, the girl don't know what to do with such a revealing miko outfit xDU

Are they trying to stablish a Miura + Micaiah friendship?
