Everybody is in a frenzy for the soon-to-come last character of the SFV roster.
Many have conjectured about the entry of Zeku, mentor of Guy and master of Bushin-Ryu ninja style - I won't mention here his Final Fight link and the controversial Genryusai vs Zeku identity of Bushin-Ryu school's true master (something all fans know and nothing that a bit of retcon can't fix) .
If you ask me, I think this deduction is correct. And it's logic, since basically every hint given by Capcom so far is not so hard to read.
Let's take the new SF logo popped up lately: two lines crossing on a bamboo forest background. Each line has its color: red (left) and green (right). Any bell ringing? Maybe that Guy ending from SFA2... Actually it was one of the few times - if not the ONLY one - in which Zeku shows himself, challenging his pupil in a fight to determine the new Bushin-Ryu school successor. They jump crossing their legs in a flying kick... and the oblique lines they create in the sky are the same and with the same colors we see in SFV logo, the red one from Guy's suit, the green one from Zeku's suit.
Plus bamboo forests are a typical setting of ninjas' tradition.
Then, the shadow of the last upcoming DLC fighter. For sake of comparison I added a famous artwork by Bengus with Zeku and Guy and a MUGEN sprite in which Zeku is created over Guy's one from the Alpha series. His haircut is quite peculiar: double spiky bangs on the front and sharp, spiky long hair on his shoulders. The shadow shows those spikes in the mid of the head's outline as well as a part of that long hair behind the neck. The stance doesn't suggest us much, so it's a useless detail as of now.
Lastly, let's consider how Capcom loves to revamp the attention on obscure or less important NPC of its main series and make them playable - Kolin and Abigail got something to say.
I won't speculate any further. But, if these above are NOT just coincidences and if Capcom doesn't mean to trick us with an incredible "coup de theatre", 9 out of 10 SFV's last contestant will be a ninja.
One of the strongest.
