In no particular order, here's what I figure:
Misha: A Harley-Davidson. It just seems to fit. And Harleys are known for their distinctive noise, after all.
Hanako: Also a motorcycle, but something more along the lines of a Kawasaki. A crotch-rocket, in other words. And of course, she'd wear the kind of helmet that completely conceals the face.
Shizune: A BMW Z4 roadster, or something similarly powerful, expensive, and well-engineered.
Emi: A Mazda Miata.
Rin: A VW Beetle, either old or new. Which she would be constantly forgetting to maintain.
Kenji: A Volvo station wagon, festooned with political bumper stickers.
Lilly: Something comfortable and reliable, but not showy or flashy. Maybe a Mercedes or Lexus.
Hisao: Actually, I could see Hisao relying on public transport or his own two feet for the rest of his life.
Mutou: A beat-up, but still well-maintained, old Toyota Corolla hatchback.
Miki: Something fast and expensive. Corvette or somesuch. Or a

.
Meiko: Well, she's just this side of a soccer mom, so - minivan.
So the next time I see an Aston Martin tearing down the highway with a suited, blonde female driver, toting an MP5, I'd know to duck out of the wa- oh, wait. Sorry; wrong media source.

Still, it probably wouldn't have been above Akira to possess an Aston Martin or some other 'super-car' once she's well up on the promotion ladder .... I think (?)
Akira wasn't on my list for the simple reason that she's already established as owning a Lancer Evo.
Also, on the subject of disabled drivers, something I should have linked to in my previous post.
Yuuko > Akira > Miki > Meiko > Sae.

Ah, I stand corrected. Must have slipped my mind. Hrmph - the minor details that slip through the cracks of memory.

...when you go to the most isolated, spacious hill you can find and give the world a hug, like Rin. Feels real good, especially when it's clear and dark :)

When you can lie awake at night, trying to go to sleep, and still hear Caged Heart somewhere in the back of your mind.
Characters: Shizune > Lilly > Rin > Emi > Hanako
Routes: Lilly > Rin > Shizune > Hanako > Emi

Replaying now, so subject to flux. Except Shizune. Shizune is best.

GAAAH, I'm plagued with this some nights. Either that, or Wiasno.

When the sub-par movie 'Paul Blart: Mall Cop' reminds you of a certain narcoleptic from 3-3...

Calling Paul Blart: Mall Cop sub-par is an insult to par.

That's definitely true. It was like a poor man's Observe and Report without any of the actual comedy. More importantly though, what in that awful movie could possibly remind you of Suzu? :lol:

He has a similar condition that I can't remember the name of. You would know if you watched the movie...

I don't recall any mention of him having narcolepsy. Then again it was such an awful movie I think I purposely shut most of it out. :lol:

I thought it was hypoglycemia which made him pass out during exercise. Not quite the same as narcolepsy.

But hell if I'm ever going to check. When did I even watch that affront to cinema?

I acknowledge it as a bad movie, but it's not unbearable.

Whatever it is, it's just an ongoing fat joke in practice. "HAHA, HE HAS TO STUFF HIS FACE ALL THE TIME, ISN'T IT FUNNY!" - Suuure, movie. Hilarious.

Ugh.

To the thread: You watch a Persian get his arms hacked off and think "Rin in a past life". (Guess who saw the 300 sequel? :D)
I love the interpretation of Pac-Man where he's a just a lowly worker retrieving golf balls left all over the course by the rich masters and the ghosts are all previous workers who got conked on the head and killed by incoming golf balls in the line of duty.
