First Impressions: Hakkenden and Senran Kagura


First Impressions: Hakkenden and Senran Kagura

Now for a fine selection of fanservice shows we have Hakkenden: Touhou Hakken Ibun for the ladies and Senran Kagura for the men. This post is not for children.

 Hakkenden: Touhou Hakken Ibun

Hakkenden: Touhou Hakken Ibun is about survivors from a plague that are not living in a church. They all have supernatural powers and the imperial church is trying to get the sword Murasume from them. They live near some dangerous woods that have uncanny creatures in them.

Hakkenden: Touhou Hakken Ibun has a variety of cute guys for the viewers to look at. Unfortunately that is at the cost of an interesting plot to watch unfold. The story so far has pieces of the story of the plague that killed the village, the church wanting the sword back, and the fox guys capturing the girl. None of these things are making a good whole story.

The characters in this show do not even have good personalities to make up for the boring plot. The two young boys are headstrong and they actually comment on how they are the same. They do not comment in the show about how all the other characters are bland and do not show any traits at this point.

Overall Hakkenden: Touhou Hakken Ibun is all about the cute guys and it is bad in a boring way. I was not even interested enough to watch the second episode.

Status: Not Watching. Wanted to poke out my eyes just watching the first episode.

Senran Kagura

Senran Kagura is about a group of high school girls in secret ninja training at their high school. They also have a group of rival ninjas that are from a poorer school that resent them for being rich.

Equal opportunity sushi roll eating, so this show can’t be all bad.

Senran Kagura is a series of action games with erotic elements for the 3DS, so not surprisingly this show does not have the greatest story. There have been several manga adaptations as well, but with a source like that it probably did not have the best story either. The draw of this show is not the story though, but the erotic elements.

The character designs are only for people who like one kind of body type and that is big breasted. Usually there is one small breasted girl so the show appeals to all kinds, but Senran Kagura does not care about people who like small breasts. You will watch big breasts and you will like it. It is really weird because one of the girls is obviously supposed to appeal to the loli loving type, but she still looks like a full grown woman. Who are they trying to appeal to there?

I took the time to cover my whole face, so I didn’t have time to cover my whole body.
