I liked the idea back in SCIV, even if they did just use other characters fighting styles.

Not necessarily Scheherazade, Angol Fear, Shura, Ashlotte and Kamikirimusi. It would be cool to see new character designs from different artists.

If they did use artists from different manga, which ones should they use?

Kentaro Miura and Kohei Horikoshi have my vote :)

I liked Shura and Kamikirimusi.

It's pointless if the bonus character's moveset is an exact copy of the main characters'

I'd liked Ashlotte. Wouldn't mind if she became an actual character.

Didn't care much for the others though.

Why not just do what Tekken 7 did and have guest artists design outfits for characters? SCV did this with Mari Shimazaki (the Bayonetta artist) which had her designing some outfits for it (the 1P costume for Leixia and the 2P costumes for Ivy and Tira).
Then again, Lucky Chloe was actually designed by Kozaki Yusuke, so there's that.

So that's why 2p Ivy and Tira reminded me of Bayonetta. The more you know.
And I like the idea for some 2p outfits to be designed by manga artists.
I'd love to see a Hirohiko Araki (Jojo's Bizzare Adventure), Kentaro Miura (Berserk), Shinobu Ohtaka (Magi) or Junji Ito (Uzumaki) 2p costume and see what they can come up with.

I didn't like it in IV because it wasn't done well. Ashlotte was the only interesting one design wise.

In 4's it was done very poorly IMO.
Almost felt like a CAS...
But if they improve on em and maybe give them a different fighting style (or at f***ing least tweak the copied fighting style to make it more 'unique'. Like idle stances and some visuals on attacks) then I'd be more than happy to see them coming back.

Yeah, I agree with you there. I would like at least some differences.
