NFSW ninja hack-and-slash action game Senran Kagura has lots of over-the-top saucy scenes. When the franchise finally makes its transition from TV game to TV anime next year, the saucy scenes will stay, but “over-the-top” goes out the window, as censors need to ensure that the programme is at least decent enough to go on TV (even though it’ll be airing in the middle of the night).

That, in my opinion, may actually be a good thing.

Just watch the trailer below, and see if you don’t agree.

No? Still don’t agree? You really want to see what I mean by “over-the-top”?

Sure, help yourself then [very NFSW]. That link will take you to the trailer for the upcoming PlayStation Vita entry in the series, Senran Kagura Shinovi Versus, which actually looks like a pretty fun game.

If this is the first time you’re hearing about Senran Kagura, the series is about two factions of modern-day ninjas – our heroines are students in the state-recognised Hanzo Academy for young shinobis (国立半蔵学院), and their adversaries are from the Viper Academy private institution (秘立蛇女子学園) – carrying out missions for clients that inadvertently clash at some point.

There’s more to the plot than just that, of course. The story in the Senran Kagura TV anime series will follow that in the 3DS games, and lead into Shinovi Versus, a sequel that features ten new characters never before seen in the 3DS games (and anime series). Five of them have been revealed so far (pictured below).

Senran Kagura the TV anime is slated for a January 2013 broadcast date. Senran Kagura Shinovi Versus comes to the PlayStation Vita February 28, 2013.
