Anko Mitarashi
 
[PANG] is just too weird a word. Kinda sounds like what your opponent will hear inside the head when that client, or that mission, gets discarded. It's a good effect, IMO. Also, she's got good stats, maintaining a good combat in both modes. She's also a Proctor, making her good for that kind of deck. Also, she carries the Snake combat attribute. In limited, she could be good. In constructed, even better. Try it and see!

N-836 Anko Mitarashi [PANG]
 
Another day, and things just keep on moving forward...pokemon is a fun game to play, and if you wish to play with Mr. N. Jolly...well, I don't know how that'd work, but I'm betting it's somehow possible.  How about it, science?
 
I actually like this preview card a bit, which is odd, as Bandai hasn't been to generous with good preview cards for most other places.  But this Anko isn't bad, a good sideboard card.  Without further adu, let's check out this card's power, shall we:
 
T3 HC0 Lightning
Leaf l Special Jonin l Female l Mental Power: 1 l Proctor
4/2 4/1 CA: Snake/Weapon
Set 17: Common
 
A few cool keywords, mental is always nice, even in low doses.  Female is the most useful word on her right now, as Special Jonin doesn't really help her play anything, and there's really no proctor card worth playing now.  Her stats have gone up a bit, which is nice, and Snake CA is not bad either.  Just on her stats, she's pretty good.  But now let's look at her effect, shall we:
 
[PANG]
Valid: During the Mission Phase, you can move this Ninja to your Chakra area.  In that case, discard 1 in-play non-Ninja card.
 
As was pointed out earlier to me by one of the Naru Shippu Live guys, this feels like a somewhat worse reprint of Anko [BLOCKING THE AMBITION], which was great mission hate.  While this card cost itself to kill a mission or client, it's still probably the only way lightning will get to hate on missions, which is something worth taking.  The biggest problem this card has is fighting for T3 with Kid Jiraiya and Naru.  If this were a T2, it'd be totally worth it, but at it's turn, it can't really contribute anything to the deck unless you're fearing some big perm mission or client.
 
Limited: 1.5/5 I can't see any card worth stopping yet,  but it's nicely stated
Constructed: 1.5/5 Too slow and not better than Anko BTA
Block: 2.25/5 A decent sideboard if your opponent has missions worth being afraid of in their deckArt: We always see Anko exhausted and pained in her pics.  I'd like to think the artist just likes drawing her that way, but this is because I am a horrible person/5

===========================
4/30/10 N-836 Anko Mitarashi [Pang]
===========================

Today we have our second Will of Fire preview, Anko Mitarashi [Pang]. For starters, she has a small stat boost from her predecessors with one extra support in Healthy and injured status. Her effect is an interesting one that allows you to send her to your Chakra Area to kill off an in play card that is not a Ninja (basically, Missions and Clients) during either player's mission phase. This effect is pretty good since you can kill off some annoying permanent missions or clients that went into play before you pulled her out and it's valid which is very nice. This card is very similar to Genma [Hidden Passion]; kill it off kill a mission or client except Anko is better since you don't need her to go on a suicide mission to kick off her effect and she becomes chakra. The only downside to this card is that it can't negate the effect of a mission being put in play, but it is useful sideboard material.

Personally, I like Anko [Blocking the Ambition] and [Chase] better than this but [BTA] can't kill clients and is not block legal, so this will have to do.

Limited: 3/5 It's common and a ninja with a decent effect.
Constructed: 2.75/5 Good for sideboard but T3 is reserved for Naruto in Lightning decks.
Block: 3/5  Better here since [BTA] is not here.
