Busty Ninja’s Clothes Explode as Cooking Intensifies!


I had to do this at the start of the morning. It took quite a bit of time to really put these thoughts together. All jokes aside, the rhythm portion of this game? AMAZING.

Told you I wasn’t making it up.

Okay, so we need to have a talk. A week or so ago I wrote an editorial on the arrival of Senran Kagura: Bon Appetit on PC. It was originally a PS Vita game in the Jiggly Ninja Girl Franchise, Senran Kagura. However, this time around it’s a rhythm game, not a fighter. So that told me, maybe the fanservice won’t be as bad as I thought it would. Oh boy was I wrong. So. Wrong. The plot for the game is this: There is a legendary, powerful scroll. It can grant any wish that the wielder wants. So instead of the master using this for his own pervy desires, a contest is held! Yes, and of course, the Senran Kagura cast shows up to try and acquire this magical power! But it’s not a fighting tournament, as one might think. It’s all about cooking! And of course, the wielder of the scroll gets to eat all the food. A match has three phases, and each time he tests the food, a course of it, and whoever’s food is better. . . their clothes are spared. The loser of the taste test suffers ala strip poker, but with more anime explosions involved. Honest. The desires they have for this scroll vary wildly. Some want to instill order and decency across the world, some want the world to be covered in bean sprouts, and probably the weirdest, one ninja, Katsuragi, wants to be the “Queen of the Hooter Harem” and command over all the breasts in the world. I’m not making that up. Also, if you do exceptionally well [almost perfect], you receive a special reward: The girl who is defeated is dressed up in dessert items, like icecream and chocolate syrup.

I am not making that up.

It gets too hard to screencap the buttons. . . shut up.

There are a lot of different things you can do, like an Arcade Mode, where you just get down and dirty, so to speak, with the game’s action. You have an option to model various clothes and change the outfit of your Ninja, and you unlock more stuff with each win. Lingerie, costumes, accessories – you name it. And the girls can wear the clothes of other girls, so there’s no worries there. If there, you know, were any. And the girls comment on what you make them wear too! There are quite a few modes, and tons of songs. Not to mention, the story mode has three difficulties, Easy [why bother?] Normal [challenging] and Hard [I see what you did there. . .], and each of the main girls has their own story, rivals, and preferred meals they want to cook. The actual meal doesn’t seem to have any bearing on the challenge of the stage, as far as I’m aware.

Now that I’m pretty much done talking about breasts, let’s talk briefly about the gameplay! Play with a controller. Play. With. A. Controller. As the song plays, the girls run around and jiggle and cook [guess I wasn’t so done. . .] and you have two bars on the bottom of the screen, and arrows/buttons move right to left. Timing is key, because it’s a rhythm game. But both bars can have arrows/buttons, so you have to really get into the rhythm of it. You can tell how you’re doing by the HP Bar at the top of the screen. It moves towards whoever is losing. So the more of the bar that is your color, the better. And yes, again, clothes explode. If a girl loses her bra/panties, it IS censored though. A golden light over their crotch, or little faces over the nipples. It doesn’t appear to have an American voice cast, which just makes some of the dialogue feel that much more awkward. I had a very hard time picking screenshots that were appropriate.

Well played, Senran Kagura. . .

Should You Play It? Awarkness Aside, Yes [4/5]

Senran Kagura is lewd, it’s lascivious, it does not take itself seriously. But it is fun. But there is one thing that made me unhappy: The loli made me uncomfortable. The loli made me uncomfortable. It’s worth saying twice. This is not a game you’re going to feel comfortable playing around your family over Thanksgiving weekend. And if you can, you have deeper seeded issues than Senran Kagura. For the rest of us, this is the game that gives us reason to lock doors and close blinds. But I will say though, that nudity aside, this game was insanely fun to play. The rhythm portion of the game is tight, easy to learn, and definitely fun. The songs are catchy and fun and the arrows/buttons seemed to follow the beat pretty well. They teach you everything you need to know except the obvious question: WHY IS SENRAN KAGURA A THING!? It’s entertaining and light-hearted, but it’s definitely strange. Rhythm fans are going to enjoy it, as will some anime fans. You don’t have to do the costuming, or you can really delve in and go. . . I shouldn’t say balls deep, but you can. You absolutely can. There’s no sex in this game, but there is lots and lots and lots of fanservice. But that aside, the core gameplay is wonderful and I found myself playing it still anyway, no matter how uncomfortable I occasionally felt. If you like solid rhythm gameplay and are fine with very animated breasts exploding out of a blouse, you owe it to yourself to play Senran Kagura: Bon Appetit!
