This is one of those characters that you've got for years, just sitting in your brain and being cool before they finally go and pick a form. I made Akantase in 7th grade and drew this picture at the end of 9th. Wow. -.- His name changed a few times, too. It used to be Acantase, pronounced, for some God aweful reason, 'A can tee'. Then I made it phonetic, so, 'A can ta cee', and finally I made it Japanese, changing the C to a K and making it 'A ka n ta se', like it's written.
