    So, I noticed the disturbing lack of a Senran Kagura thread on this board.

    I thought that I'd fix that.

    The game series is fantastic. It's got great gameplay, great aesthetics, and great fanservice.

    Estival Versus is out. I got the Gessan girls for my trading cards.

    How about you guys? What cards did you get? How do you feel about this game series?

    Senran Kagura's pretty rad.
    I played the 3DS version and while there was slowdown and weakness at times. It was over all a neat experience and I wanted to play the rest.
    Never got around to getting 2, Shinovi Versus, or Estiviel tho

    The only one that I've played is Estival.

    I love how there's a character that's just Jotaro with boobs.

    She was a boss in Senran Kagura one who no bullshit had an instant kill move.

    Please tell me it's some time stop related thing.

    Also, she's playable in Estival.

    Looks pretty fun, will probably give it a shot one of these days.

    I wish there were more flat/small chested girls. That's my fetish. I don't like the ones that I've seen. But I hear one of the games lets you edit breast size in dlc or something so I guess that's good enough.

    There are at least 3 flat chested girls in Senran Kagura.

    I mean, one of them wears a padded bra when she goes into transformation mode, but still.

    Yozakura's level 1 super is really, really strong.

    Like, holy shit.

    I took down like 2 bosses with one blow.

    It felt like I was Saitama.

    I actually got 1.5 of the vita games: Versus and Bon Apetite (no "expansion" pack :PUJNA:).
    The rhythm game is legit good. I just wish they toned down the plot a bit. Blasphemy, I know, but it'd be a good game even without the cheesecake.

    Senran Kagura is underrated imo, but it's like SFV R.Mika or DoA as a whole. Fun to play, but the choice to make it more fanservicy gives it a bad rep and turns a lot of people off.... the remaining people are really freaking dedicated though.

    You never know, might not have had a fanbase in the first place if they didn't pander.

    I don't mind fanservice overload so long as the designs are good. I don't think the designs in DOA or Senran are particularly good though. But they're not bad either. Good enough I guess. And the gameplay looks solid.

    If it sells it sells. And you shouldn't really complain about the fanservice because it's clear what game your buying.

    It's so odd because Senran Kagura actually has a pretty good story about the life of a Ninja

    So has anyone else hit that love/hate point yet with the moveset changes in Estival? I know change is good for the game and all, but one or two of those characters (RIP Mirai) kind of feel like they just got gutted compared to other versions.

    Yeah, the story of Estival is surprisingly deep and emotional.

    Like, not all of it is fanservice.

    Oh, I agree to an extent.
    Like I said, the fanbase it has is very dedicated.
    And I can get over the fanservice as long as it doesn't go too far for me; different people have different limits, of course.
    But at the same time, I feel that too many games (not SK in particular) are using fanservice as a crutch......a crutch with a built in machine gun aimed at the wallets of a select few, but a crutch never the less.
    Senran would still be fun with toned down cheesecake imo, but I'll play it as is.

    That's a bit silly to me. I mean, can I only talk about aspects I like? :/
    I just don't see how that mindset would invalidate any criticism.
    And It's not like I'm asking for a refund.
    Senran is a fun games series to me, but I think it has flaws.
    I got senran because the fan service wasn't bad enough to kill the game for me and it was on sale.
    It doesn't change the fact that I think the fanservice is still a bit much.

    2 3DS games
    3-4 Vita Games (the second rhythm game was an expansion outside of Japan)
    1 PS4 game and
    1 Mobile Phone game

    Even if we count the two EV games as 1 and the two Rhythm games as 1, that figure will be split between 6 different games.
    And considering one was a mobile game, it's suprising that the sales aren't higher. And does that figure include the anime?

    But in any case, the series is still profitable, I'll give you that. And while I personally hope that they'll turn the fanservice in future games down a notch, I'll keep supporting it until it goess too far for me. Until then I honestly wish the best for the series and hope it improves.

    This sales figure is from August 2015.

    Keep that in mind.

    A fair point, so I won't count EV. But again, does that number include the anime. Or even the manga series I just remembered. There's like....six; give or take. Those numbers are still spread out. That said, I did admit that the series is profitable enough, regardless of how the sales numbers are spread out. But that may be due to excellent budgeting.

    Anyway, I think it's safe to say that we're all fans of the series, even if it may be for different reasons.

    I like Senran for the fact it doesnt hide the fan-service. it knows who it wants to cater to and they have made their name because of it.
    also, Ikaruga is my favorite Senran.

    I like the gameplay and the outrageous, silliness. Even though there are "serious" moments, the overall feel is very light hearted and energetic.

    My favorites are: Katsuragi, Daidoji, and Hikage. Yagyu and Miyabi are in my top 5 as well.

    I also love the depth of the characters.
    I've only been able to play Hanzo, and have yet to play Hebijo (even though I love Mirai)
    but all of the girls seem to actually be characters with their own problems and personalities that get really fleshed out.
    especially Ikaruga.

    Oh wow a Senran thread. SV and EV is pretty fun on my Vita. Yomi is fun to use with two hand sword + her range weapon options.

    Want to get the Ayane dlc since one of my fav DoA characters.

    I'm kinda looking forward to playing Senran Kagura 2 and Shinovi/Estiviel and just see how much changes
    I know Senran Kagura 2 is the "true" sequel.
    All i know is they pretty massively rework Haruka.
    Originally she didn't have any robot, and her strength increased a lot when you transformed, but the downside was that A LOT of her moveset was only with her scientist transformation, and once that was gone, you were even weaker than since before you transformed.

    Yo we got a Senran Kagura thread? Word!

    I like Ikaruga. It's just there are so many waifus in this game, that some tend to fall behind.

    You should read the SK Spark manga, it gives a really good backstory with her and Katsuragi.

    Oh, and her Heart mission in EV is oh so sexy!
