Everyone loves competive shooter Overwatch’s Dorito Demon D.Va (CV Risa Taneda – Gate’s Rory Mercury). Among the folks flooding social media with tributes are some Japanese pop media notables, and not just kuso (crap) manga boy Bukubu Ookawa. This week, So-Bin, light novel artist and original character designer for Overlord, and Akira “Akiman” Yasuda, designer for Street Fighter, Turn A Gundam and Bodacious Space Pirates.

Meanwhile, there’s been a fan remix of Roadhog (CV Naomi Kusumi) as an otaku, and Cliff Bleszinski (Unreal, Gears of Wars) did his part to spread the joke.
