Okay, viewers. Quick question. What would happen if you combined one awesome and super strong dog hanyo, one fun-loving, sweet and rather kickass wolf yokai, one lovable dumb muscle of a martial artist, one gorgeous virgin, one fiery mechanic chick, and one feisty witch? You would get a crossover BroT6 that is absolutely fun, badass, charming in its own way, and so beautiful! If you cannot already tell who they are, they are Inuyasha and Ginta from Inuyasha, Kiichi “Kiibo” Miyazawa from Shootfighter Tekken or High School Exciting Story: Tough, Rosé Thomas and Winry Rockbell from Fullmetal Alchemist, and Maya Orihara from Ultra Maniac.
Moreover, here are their ages in this piece of fan art.
Inuyasha, aged 35
Ginta, aged 34
Kiibo, aged 34
Rosé, aged 32
Winry, aged 30
Maya, aged 29
It should come off as no surprise that I not only enjoy Inuyasha from time to time but also the three-episode OVA Shootfighter Tekken, both Fullmetal Alchemist and Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood, and to some extent Ultra Maniac, mostly because Maya steals the show. These shows were a part of my life growing up all thanks to these characters.
When making this piece of fanart, this begged the question. What would happen if Oton not only had Kiichi or Kiibo as his son but also adopted Inuyasha, Ginta, Rosé, Winry, and Maya as his own children and took in Pinako as the grandmother figure? I’m pretty sure this would be the most badass, kickass, awesome, and extremely grand family to ever walk the Japanese anime world.
I can certainly see how everything unfolds as an anime crossover AU. As children, all six of them would be trained rigorously in the art of Nanshin Shadow Style by Sensei Oton and would always have each others’ backs whenever trouble comes afoot. As teenagers, they would balance school with their martial arts training whilst getting themselves into the usual drama that teens face like getting to a great university, getting great grades, having first dates, and more. Finally, as adults, all of them would become the greatest martial arts team known to man and end up married.
The way I see the familial relationship in my AU is the following.
Oton is the big, stern patriarch who ensures discipline on his six children by training them every day in the art of Nanshin Shadow Style. When they are not training he does like to unwind with them once in a while even though he does not always show it. Regardless, he deeply cares for all six of his children and finds something unique in every one of them.
Grandpa Miyazawa and Pinako Rockbell are the wise grandparents who give their grandchildren great advice and can still open up a can of whoop-ass even in their old age.
Inuyasha is the large-and-in-charge eldest child who leads with an iron fist. Despite having a gruff exterior, he does show his unconditional love to his younger siblings and goes out of his way to protect them. He enjoys all of the wrestling, beatdowns, and posedowns he has with Ginta and Kiibo and he is very tender towards his younger sisters, Rosé, Winry, and Maya. He has also been happily married to Ayame for seventeen years with five children. His eldest sons Kenta and Keita love being around Ginta and Kiibo, as they spar and train together with their father. His younger son, Kaito, and his daughters, Momoko and Maya, love being around Rosé, Winry, and Maya, as they also train with their mother and have quiet walks in the forest.
Ginta is the meek, charming, loving, and comforting second child who is a foil to Inuyasha’s brand of impulsiveness. While not as macho and gruff as Inuyasha, he can still be assertive whenever his older brother does something rash or foolish or whenever he says something he does not agree with. In spite of the arguments he has with Inuyasha, he still considers him to not only the greatest brother he ever has but also his true friend. He and Inuyasha also consider Rosé and Winry to be their favorite little sisters, as they can show that they are as tough as their big brothers. Ginta has been happily married to Shunran for sixteen years with five children. His eldest sons, Minoru and Manabu, have a very close-knit friendship with Kenta and Keita, as they not only do a lot of training together but also have fun like many other active teenage boys. His daughters and youngest son Sakura, Kokoro, and Sentaro enjoy hanging out with Kaito, Momoko, and Maya, as they like to race each other in vast open fields and even hang out with their uncles, aunties, grandfather, and great-grandparents.
Kiibo is the lovably goofy dumb muscle third child who loves to spar and have posedowns with his older brothers and likes to tease his younger sisters. There are times Inuyasha does tend to be annoyed by Kiibo and his simple-mindedness, goofiness, and overall act first think later type of personality and Ginta does find him to be annoying in a rather endearing way but his younger sisters, Rosé, Winry, and Maya, find him to be cute in a hilarious way because they just love seeing their big brother flex his muscles. As the muscle of his siblings, he does his part in making sure that they are safe from any harm and is always of assistance when it comes to the heavy-duty work. Moreover, he and his older brothers have become martial arts trainers to aspiring fighters, thus learning a lot from their father. Kiibo has been happily married to his childhood sweetheart, Akemi Takaishi, for twelve years and they have four children named Motomu who is eleven years old, Keiko who is nine years old, Takuma who is eight years old, and Ryoko who is six years old. As a father, Kiibo may be lax in his parenting style but he has enough unconditional love to give to his children, as Akemi is very much the much sterner disciplinarian and she can be simultaneously nurturing as a mother to her children. Motomu considers Inuyasha to be his favorite uncle, as he aspires to be as strong and tough as he is. Takuma absolutely adores Ginta as his uncle, as he is absolutely hilarious and loves his sense of humor. Keiko considers Rosé and Winry to be her favorite aunts because of how strong they are. Finally, Ryoko loves playing with her favorite aunt Maya, as she loves to look pretty around her.
Rosé is the compassionate, loving, merciful fourth child who serves as the badass pacifist of the family. Whenever her older brothers get into a heated argument, whether it’s Inuyasha vs Ginta, Inuyasha vs Kiibo, Ginta vs Kiibo or having all three big brothers at each others’ throats, Rosé will be the one to resolve these problems in a calm and peaceful manner. Even though she does enjoy the company of her older brothers, she is so much closer to her younger sister, Winry, as they not only like to spar with each other but also meditate together and have lively conversations. She also enjoys Maya’s company, as she is a foil to Rosé’s diplomacy and Winry’s toughness. When Rosé is not participating in martial arts tournaments, she is a qualified English and History teacher in an international school. Rosé is also a single mother of three children named Noah who is fourteen years old, Miriam who is thirteen years old, and Jonah who is twelve years old. Rosé has no prospects of marrying as her career as a martial artist, her teaching career and children are her priorities in life.
Winry is the tough, relentless, spitfire fifth child. She is more tomboyish than Rosé and she loves to wrestle, spar, and hang out with her older brothers. Even though Inuyasha, Ginta, and Kiibo tend to be overprotective of her, she constantly reminds them that she is more than capable of taking care of herself. She and Rosé are extremely close to Inuyasha and Ginta, as they enjoy each others’ company and they know how to give good advice to their favorite younger sisters. Given her experience in technology and mechanics, Winry is often reliable in fixing damaged machines and is fascinated by the sciences, thus making her the genius bruiser of the family. Through her intelligence, she has gotten herself into one of the best universities and has ended up at the top of her class. She has been happily married to her childhood friend, Edward Elric, for nine years and they have five children named Theodor who is nine years old, Nina who is seven years old, Clara who is six years old, Michael who is five years old, and Samuel who is three years old. Moreover, Winry works as a mechanic and physics teacher aside from her endeavors as a martial artist.
Maya is the mischievous and snarky youngest child. She may be the baby of the family but she hates feeling like she has to be infantilized by her older siblings for the sake of annoying her in a playful way. While she may not have Inuyasha’s, Ginta’s, and Kiibo’s muscles, and Rosé’s and Winry’s strong build, Maya bears a lithe, sleek figure which makes her a very speedy and agile fighter. Her speed is very commendable to Oton, her grandparents, and her older siblings, as she is able to throw attacks effectively and cleanly. She loves to meditate, as it gives her great concentration, and she loves learning about the supernatural. She also knows a lot about medicine and she is essentially the family paramedic. Whenever her father has a serious injury, her siblings have bruises and wounds, or if her grandparents have something bothering them, she will always be the one to find a cure using her unrivaled knowledge. Maya has been happily married to her childhood friend, Yuta Kirishima, for six years and they have three children named Reiko who is five years old, Satoru who is four years old, and Tomomi who is two years old. Moreover, Maya is a qualified nurse and paramedic having been passionate about medicine and magic ever since she was a teenager.
So, there you have it. A very grand-looking BroT6 for life consisting of six of my favorite anime characters of all time. I hope you enjoyed taking a gander at this piece of fanart and reading my post and have a lovely summer. Take care.
