Lisa Vannette hails from the original 1987 Bubblegum Crisis OAV series, which to this day remains one of the best Cyber Punk animé out there. She's aspiring photojournalist, who takes it upon herself to uncover the identities of the Knight Sabers. She's a pivotal character in the Episode she appears in "Scoop Chase".Lisa is spunky, and rather ditzy, but has formidable tenacity, much to the frustration of Nene Romanova. She's also the niece of A.D. Police Chief Todo.The person who designed this character was Kenichi Sonoda, who is a famous character designer and manga author. As far as I can tell, Lisa is the first of many 'authentically Black' Blondes in animé. It's possible that the trend began with her.I'd cast Lauren London for a live action version.
