She’s here finally! If you remember the magazine scan from the beginning of this year, then you should know this Hobby Japan 40th anniversary project “Hyakka Ryouran Samurai Girls”. It is a join project of Nitro+ and Hobby Japan.
The first volume of the light novel just released by the end of February. From those people who read it, they said it’s like Ikkitousen+Samurai Guard+Negima!. As you can tell from the girls’ names, they’re the historical heroes of Japan’s feudal era but they live in the present day. They need to form some kind of contract between “Samurai” (侍) and “Shogun” (将) by kissing (or something belong that level). And of course, the girls’ clothes keep falling apart during the fight. Sounds really interesting, I’m really looking forward to the any manga or anime adoption. =P
