Much praise was given to the character Mako Mori in the 2013 movie "Pacific Rim" because of her personality and her unique narrative. Yet, a character very similar to Mako emerged decades prior to her: Yoko Tsuno, the main character from the eponymous comic book series. Mako and Yoko have much in common, including their Japanese and scientific background, as well as their composite close circles.
