anima is an action hack-and-slash umbrella game loosely based around the Warriors series created by Koei Tecmo. The game is being worked on by Jake(Talk) as a sort of parallel timeline of the Partial Macrocosm known as the Partial Totality.
Similar to Koei Tecmo's Warriors series, anima places players in a large battlefield alongside a large amount of enemy minions and captains, with the goal of capturing keeps and defeating the enemy commander. Unlike Warriors titles, though, players can use the Wii U gamepad's touchscreen to create paths for their allied forces to travel and create guards for their captured keeps. Unlike Warriors games though, the game does not solely feature action sections as some puzzles must be completed to open locked gates. Perhaps the most different aspect of the game is the Capture system. Spirits can sometimes appear on the battlefield, and approaching it will teleport the spirit and the player into another plane where they fight in a one-on-one battle. To Capture the spirit, the player must defeat them in a more challenging battle of several stages.
The spirit's first stage is the Cracked. Cracked spirits are fast attackers who very rarely let down their guard, making them hard to defeat. After defeating the Cracked, the spirit then transforms into its Unbound form, where it becomes a large deity with extremely powerful attacks but next-to-no defensive capabilities, making them easier to defeat. The last form is the Freed form, which can not attack and just tries to flee from the player. During this time, the player has five minutes to kill the spirit before it reverts to a weaker version of its Unbound form. Successfully killing the spirit frees it, unlocking a new playable character. Once all playable characters are unlocked, defeating spirits releases large amount of money and can even drop a new weapon.

Her special attacks have her using her M9 Vertec pistol.
