To be honest with you I have absolutely no idea who Casshern is. I looked him up to try and educate myself on it and all I needed to see were that he's a 2004 Japanese Superhero and a few reference shots. That gave me enough background information I think. -_-
Before we get started I'd like to thank the author for naming their readme something besides 'readme'. Giving it a unique name means that you don't have to constantly overwrite readme after readme after readme. I'd also like to point out that he put all the files (PK3, readmes, and screenshots) in one folder (So even if the readme didn't have a unique name you wouldn't have to overwrite anything with it) and then zipped that folder up. These are GOOD PRACTICES, PEOPLE. Anyway here we go.
The skin overall is well done; the textures are nice and aesthetically pleasing, however there are a few qualms I have with it. First of all, he looks like he's wearing an inverted tuxedo and I couldn't find a black undershirt or underarmor showing on any of the pictures of Casshern on Google. >_> Secondly the mask is supposed to be metal and jut out kind of like a birdie's beak. That can't be accomplished very well with this model since his mouth and nose are still clearly visible on his face. Also, the mask shouldn't even cover up his nose. In the pictures I found it ends just below his nose, but in the skin it covers up his nose (But leaves the underside skin colored and with nostrils) He also just isn't armored enough (Or Asian enough) to look like Casshern.
New sounds are included (Though they're a bit too... over-acted for me.) Also, a note to the author: You need to change the sounds.cfg file in your model folder to match the name of the new sounds folder for your skin. For example, if the folder your sounds are in is called 'casshern' you need to make the sounds.cfg file have 'casshern' too instead of 'kyle'. I've fixed it for you and packed it all back up but this is the second time I've come across this today. (Both with Japanese-related skins. >_>) There are no team skins or bot support; try to include those next time. Overall, a good effort and a good skin but it just doesn't do justice to the character it's supposed to represent.
