#1895 “Budokai 2k12: Round 14 - Sakura X. Aino vs Ratchet Altair”
[22:25] <[gTV]Red_Crow> ♦ Today's match is a special one! The two competitors, Sakura Xadium Aino (neé Sakura Shinguji) and Ratchet Altair were teammates in the 1920's, as part of the Japan Imperial Assault force that used Steam Mechs to fight off demonic invasions!
[22:26] <[gTV]Aya-chan!> ♦ Back then, Ratchet showed up to help wind down Sakura's Era as the focus shifted to efforts in New York, where Ratchet helped take center stage!
[22:28] <[gTV]Red_Crow> ♦ These good friends face each other today in combat for perhaps the first time since 1926! Sakura, kept young by her Time Lord DNA, and Ratchet by a potion Kamesennin slipped her at, ironically, an earlier Budokai in 1934!
[22:28] <[gTV]Aya-chan!> ♦ Wow, that was the 17th Budokai wasn't it?
[22:30] <[gTV]Red_Crow> ♦ Yup, not that we could have seen it, we'd already made our Devil's deal with Galaxia at the time :/
[22:33] <[gTV]Aya-chan!> ♦ Since that time, the likes of master Chiun, Akkuman, Jackie Chun, Son Goku and The Immortal Mister Satan have all come and gone as champions! Will we see one of these girls rise up to be the next?
