Both cute and cool in the same time!! Kinda reminds me of Winry Rockbell from Fullmetal Alchemist and Yukina from Kotetsujou no Kabaneri

Extremely cute tomboy ! The pigtails, halter top, and baggy pants with mechanics belt combine with her girlish face and very fit figure to create an endearing character !

Now is your chance to win both published books in the Dark & Day series!

Step 1. Simple go to the Dark & Day Facebook page [link]

Step 2. Add your comment on the Wall with what it is about Dark & Day that interests you!
Is it the epic fantasy v. scifi style? Like the YA genre? A particular character? (like Jono? Commander Grail? the Sage of Ages?) or a particular art work? (Tyler Edlin’s City of Eies? Andrew Hou’s Withering Mark cover? Robert Kim’s Jono at Al Jebra? Lokman Lam’s Grown up Keiko?)

Step 3. Look for a winner on the Dark & Day Facebook page!

I really like this :)

Though I don't see the resemblance to the Atlantis character everyone's speaking about, other than that they're both mechanic girls with shoulder length dark hair.
