Daily Heroine: Kallan James

Today’s Daily Heroine is: Captain Kallan James from the 80s TV animation titled Thunderbirds 2086 (known as Scientific Rescue Team Technoboyager in Japan). As you might be able to guess, Thunderbirds 2086 is loosely based on Gerry Anderson’s well-known Thunderbirds TV show. It aired during school hours in my city, so I only ever got to see one episode as a kid, but I do remember really liking it; especially since, unlike the original Thunderbirds, it featured a female member. And a pretty one at that!😀 Unfortunately, I cannot be certain who voiced Kallan, because cartoons from that era are woefully vague when it comes to the voice cast, but in the Japanese version (where, incidentally, she went by the name Catherine Hayward) she was voiced by Manami Ito.

I’m always on the look out for new interesting and likeable heroines, so if you have a particular favourite, please tell me about her! Till tomorrow, au revoir, arrivederci and may the force be with you.😊

New “Resident Evil 3” Remake Trailer Released!

A new trailer for the upcoming Resident Evil 3 remake has just been released and it looks awesome! The focus of this trailer is Nemesis, the game’s monstrous antagonist, but you do get to see a lot of new shots of Jill Valentine, the game’s heroine, as well.

Resident Evil 3 is out on April 3, which is not very far away, but if there is any further news on it, I’ll definitely make a post about it. Till next time, au revoir, arrivederci and may the force be with you!😊

Daily Heroine: Princess Leia Organa

Today’s Daily Heroine is: Princess Leia Organa (played by the late Carrie Fisher) from the original Star Wars trilogy, which came out in the 70s and 80s (and also the more recent sequel trilogy). The Empire Strikes Back is my favourite movie of all time, so I guess it’s no surprise that Princess Leia has always been a big favourite of mine. She is feisty and fearless and very attractive, especially in Return of the Jedi. That sexy slave costume of hers is something that is etched into my memory for all eternity.😆

Daily Heroine: Jaime Sommers

Today’s Daily Heroine is: Jaime Sommers (played by the stunning Lindsay Wagner), from the 70s American TV show The Bionic Woman. I only have vague memories of watching The Bionic Woman as a kid, but I recall it being a fun action show (much like it’s parent show, The Six Million Dollar Man, starring the very cool Lee Majors). So, when I found out just last week that The Bionic Woman is currently available to be streamed here in Australia, I decided to watch the first episode. My thoughts? Well, Jaime Sommers was as beautiful as I remembered, plus she is quite sweet and charming.😄

Daily Heroine: Jill Valentine

Today’s Daily Heroine is: Jill Valentine, one of the main protagonists of the Resident Evil (AKA Biohazard) series of video games. Jill has appeared in many games over the years (20, if Wikipedia is correct), but the image I chose for this post is from the upcoming Resident Evil 3 remake, which will be released in under three months from now. I love Jill. She has been my favourite video game heroine for many years now. She looks fabulous and she is an expert in combat, but she also has a great deal of compassion. Just the kind of person you’d want by your side, should a zombie apocalypse break out in your city.😋

Well, that completes the first week of my new Daily Heroine posts. I’ve gone through all of my favourites in the seven different categories, so I’ll start choosing characters at random starting from tomorrow. Till then, au revoir, arrivederci and may the force be with you.😊

Daily Heroine: Mai Kuju

Today’s Daily Heroine is: Mai Kuju, from the 80s manga Mai, the Psychic Girl, which was written by Kazuya Kudo and illustrated by the great Ryoichi Ikegami. The cover you see is from the first volume of the three-volume 2003 Japanese edition of Mai, the Psychic Girl (which was simply titled Mai in Japan). Mai is a pretty, kind and innocent young girl, yet one who possesses a frightfully powerful special ability. Mai is one of the main reasons I got into Japanese comics (and by extension, Japanese animation) in my youth. Mr Kudo wrote such an amazing tale about her and Mr Ikegami drew her so beautifully that I immediately fell in love with her.😍

Daily Heroine: Sara Crewe

Today’s Daily Heroine is: Sara Crewe from the 1905 children’s novel A Little Princess, by the British-born American writer Frances Hodgson Burnett. The cover you can see is from the 1995 film tie-in version of A Little Princess, which is when I first read Sara’s story. For me, Sara is the absolutely perfect heroine. She is intelligent, compassionate and imaginative. But most important of all, she has an admirable inner strength that allows her to overcome the misfortune that life sends her way. It may be sheer coincidence, but I find that many of the heroines I create end up resembling Sara Crewe to some degree.🙂
