Chambara Hero Wonder Woman.

An explanation of "Chambara"--> [link]

Chambara Hero Wonder Woman is called 'Kaiketsu no Kimi'.

Himeko grew up in a secret enclave hidden in the densely forested and mountainous Tohoku region. The village was founded by the shaman princess Pimiko, the first Empress of Japan. The Empress was forced to flee the palace to this place after a coup by the nobility led by her own son. Forever soured to the male gender and the outside world, she sealed herself and her surviving personal entourage away in a remote hamlet. Her shamanic powers kept them all from aging, and when accidental death claimed one of their number, abducted male travelers could provide them with children.

The most recent child born in this way was the Empress' own daughter, Himeko. She was given the surname 'Daikichi', meaning 'Great Blessing'. And so Himeko was raised to be a princess, trained in the use of the sacred naginata, schooled in the ancient philosophies, and educated in the mysteries of the earth, rock, and tree.

Eventually, the headstrong girl began to yearn to see the outside world, and her daily wanderings began to take her to the forbidden borders of their village and beyond. This is how she came upon young samurai, Shichiro Toriba, as he was being pursued by bandits. Ignoring the laws strictly forbidding her from doing so, she swiftly dispatched the bandits and rescued him. Upon learning of her crime, the Empress was forced to banish her from the village-- though she also conferred upon her the task of representing the philosophies and principles of the village to the wider world.

Himeko now travels Japan, engaging in adventures while struggling to understand the confusing cultures of the people beyond her village. Rumors have labeled her Kaiketsu no Kimi, for her archaic speech and mannerisms and her breathtaking martial skill.

"Shichiro Toriba" I see what you did there.

Honestly thought all these look really awesome. And I like how you included her color scheme but it doesn't look remotely Star spangled banner. I really like the yellow obi, it breaks up the colors and yet brings them together. I never noticed how very primary Wonder Woman was until now. D'oh.

Thanks, she was a real headscratcher for a while. Female warriors in Japan don't have a clear parallel to the Amazons.

Thanks! The real meaning of the name is even better, but it's harder to translate into a normal sounding name.

OK, that was a great solution! :) Himeko means "princess", if my non-existent Japanese is right... so I imagine Kaiketsu no Kimi means "Stars and Shorts". ;)

Yes!

Kaiketsu is actually a pretty great term that is hard to translate into a name. It suggests a man of wondrous and mysterious skills.
