Senran Kagura cast
When Nintendo first announced its 3D-capable 3DS handheld system, what kind of in-your-face gaming experience did you imagine? A high-tuned Mario Kart? A new Pilotwings with skydiving so realistic it’d have you looking for a ripcord?

Well if you were video game producer Kenichiro Takaki, you thought of boobs. Takaki, along with lonely gamer lust, is the driving force behind the Senran Kagura franchise. The series follows Asuka, a high school girl who’s also a ninja protecting the citizens of Japan against other, less scrupulous ninja. Joining Asuka in her mission are her classmates and their prodigious busts.

Starting with a 3DS release in 2011, the series expanded to a comic and anime TV series before making its PlayStation Vita debut this February with its third titillating title, Senran Kagura Shinovi Versus. Takaki recently had an idea for a little downloadable extra, but first threw down a lacy gauntlet to the series’ fans to gauge their interest.

By now you’ve probably already figured out that as part of their fighting style, Senran Kagura’s ninja girls sometimes fight in their underwear. Of course they do. But Takaki noticed that the newest game is missing something: panties with a simple design. Not one to let this oversight go uncorrected, Takaki whipped up three pairs (Pure White, Pure Pink, and Pure Black). Pleased enough with his handiwork that he remarked, “I can’t control my lust,” he tweeted a picture of one design to his followers on April 23 at 5:16 p.m. He also let them know that if the picture was re-tweeted 820 times before the end of the month, the panties would be available as a free downloadable costume for Senran Kagura Shinovi Versus in May.

Despite a few tense moments when one concerned fan asked if bras would be included (Takaki assured him they would), the series’ fans responded with the urgency of a corps of horny Batmen responding to the bat-panties signal. Takaki, saying, “Oh wow! I expected this to take a whole week,” tweeted that the goal had been met at 6:16 p.m., exactly one hour after his request for re-tweets.

Of course, not every Senran Kagura fan owns a PS Vita. For them, there’s an upcoming set of rubber cell phone straps featuring the series’ cast. To make up for the fact that none of them are in their panties, the manufacturer promises that each carries “the subtle scent of boobs.”

Details are still vague on just what exactly that smell is, with one online commentator speculating “mildly sweaty, or perhaps like milk.” Given these characters’ bust measurements, our money is on silicone, but we’ll have to wait until the straps go on sale in July to find out.
