Senran Kagura “May Tone The Sexiness Down”

Sexy-Bikini-Sensei-Homura-by-YaegashiNan

An interview had with Senran Kagura‘s producer Kenichiro Takaki has revealed that the franchise’s sexiness may get toned down in exchange for features that will “better suit” the western market, whilst additionally evading the issues that sensitive SJWs in the west love to fine with such “offensive” games.

Kenichiro’s response when asked about whether he has thought about toning down the franchise’s sex appeal:

A little bit. The game started out very small and that was the big selling point in order to move units.

Now that the franchise has grown, and is getting more popular, it might be worth considering having features that differ depending on where it’s being sold.

That way it might be able to sell better in certain regions where it would be problematic to have that kind of content.

On the other side of the fence, Kenichiro also addressed one-sided reviews that would bash the Senran Kagura games solely for their gratuitous service:

However, there are also reviews that ignore the games due to the sexual content, and write it off from the start, so those aren’t very helpful.

If you’re going to write it off due to a main component then that game just isn’t for you, and that review isn’t really useful as feedback.

Naturally, hardcore Senran Kagura fans can’t help but feel betrayed over the fact that future games may be less sexy as a result of all their steadfast support of the series over the years…

    Looks like he instantly changed his mind.

    "I'd like to make it clear that it is not my intention to tone down the content in Senran Kagura overseas."

    I was gonna tell him don't change SK, but I'm sure plenty of people already have.

    Sadly, this is where "I was forced to do so" tends to surface after the fact.

    "It is not my intention", "it might be worth considering"....what is this, government elections? Such ambiguity would just make people even more worried. The "future games may be less sexy as a result of all the steadfast support of the series over the years…" is just icing (if not "coup de grace").

    It was a shitty article with no original transcript, probably mistranslated/interpreted or taken out of context.

    All he was saying is they have to comply with rating boards, and other than that they'll do whatever they please.

    Don't be dictate by Hypocrite. Senran Kagura is fine as it is and keep it up! Overseas Western are bunch of fake! They lost and can't make a profits. So they attack on Senran Kagura creators. All this overseas ???. Tone down your art work is just all out jealousy. This is gamer generation those overseas group want to control the freedom to video game! If talent is in Japan why must stop?

    That's cool. I mean the Senran Kagura series never really interested me mechanically or thematically, but to see a creator change his vision JUST because he wants more people to accept it is kinda disappointing. If I did decide to check out Senran kagura at some point, I'd rather get the full experience. And you definitely shouldn't bend to SJWs, they don't even fucking play games anyway!

    have only bought sk estival vs enjoyed the shit out of it that is the only game i've platinum'd, i probably wont buy a sk game that has less fan service than estival vs.

    ffs ppl and/or sjws if you dont like something dont bitch about it, just ignore and enjoy your pretty fucking sad life

    either have the option in game to tone it down or up either works, or parental control which parents dont use cuz they are even more ignorant and stupid than they realize

    Don't you dare fucking betray me...

    Very few games remain a pillar of "if you don't like sexy girls, then fuck off; it's not for you."

    Let's hope SK stays on that list.

    Exactly.

    You're not going to win over SJWs by trimming out a bit of the most, hmmm, titillating content. Anything more revealing than a heavy burlap sack will be denounced as sexist and exploitative, and they still won't buy your game.

    All you're doing is ticking off your fans.

    You said it. The rise of supermodel male character rose while supermodel female get characters in games get ducked on.

    The source was a playstation life interview by gaijin who likely sensationalised it with FAKE NEWS.

    Something so important would never ever be told to filthy gaijin ahead of famitsu and other JP sources.

    Beware of FAKE NEWS.

    "having features that differ depending on where it’s being sold."

    Just the plain definition of censorship.

    I do believe that people who are not into such games shouldn't do reviews for them. Why would you want to make review of a game that is against your own ideas and interests? However people nowadays are really into hate culture, which is looking for products to just hate on them. There will always be people who enjoy and ones who hate on products. If you don't like it, just leave it, why do you try to destroy something you don't even care for. Specialy for people who do care for it.

    What you have said is the core of SJW hate culture where it is now trending so much. Basically they can stand firm on moral ground, and bitch on everything they hate, use large media forces like SJW WSJ, ISIS sympathizer BBC to stir everything to hell to create their safe space, and it is ok when they do it. Search for "PedoGAF" (previously NeoGAF) for SJW commit pedo crime.

    And now otaku can't even create content and enjoy themselves, as their triggering blast zone is so big it keeps harass developers, they have to tone down the service to avoid complain from the side.

    bullshit, the SJWs are a bunch of fucking idiots. everybody knows that SJWs just look at the box without knowing what the game is about and make up bullshit about it. go ahead, and ask them questions to see how quick. they are at dodging and bitching. what the west really want is hot steaming 100% uncensored tits and pussies. give us, naked women or fuck off, cunts.

    I remembered something specially stupid. When a certain "world cup revision" of a popular soccer videogame by EA come out, a bunch of very vocal critics dissed it for not including women's team, even tough it was about the men's championshio. They "fixed" the problem in the next iteration, adding 10 women's team and got a lot of praise from the same critics. The only problem is that it did NOT include the teams that actually won the former euro and world championships, just the national teams of the countries where the games were most popular. The critics didn't even notice, showing their deep knoledge about the women's sports they were fighting for...

    They should also include every top tier HS boys teams, since some random top tier HS boys team decimated the world's top women team.

    If they hate anime so much, they should not bring anime plots into reality.

    Fuck these SJW bitches, they're a butthurt minority trying to fuck everything that doesn't stand in their fucked up morals, if you have problems with SK then why not with porn ? senran kagura are usually R18 games, so instead of ruining for everyone, how about you fucking parent control your little shitstained little sperm brats on what they buy online with your credit cards?

    FYI to people:

    Some of the most vocal complainers about the fanservice arent...."sjw" but some of the "fans" of the series. If you ever been to the Maverlous forums you would see some people consistently trying to get the fanservice such as finishers and sexy outfits removed because they think the series wont become mainstream because of it. They have ongoing conversation with the western publishers about this and if the idea and thoughts get to the developers its probably because of that.

    The series absolutely shouldn't become mainstream.

    Because then it(the sexy stuff) will just be removed completely, to cater to kids and family.

    Look at Nintendo. Their stuff is mainstream/family friendly, and now people are complaining the latest mario game is racist because he wears a sombrero.(google it)

    Mainstream attracts idiots. All that added attention just attracts more SJWs and people who never stfu about politics and other such nonsense.

    I was on Gfaqs the other day, and people were accusing P4 of "food shaming" Chie. Making fun of girls who have a large appetite. (I didn't even know food shaming was a thing.)

    Is that what you want for SK? People bringing up the dumbness crap imaginable and pretending it's a "legitimate concern"?

    Totally agree. A lot of these great fanservices game are truly "for someone who enjoy fanservices ONLY", as their initial intention.

    Well it is hard not bring to mainstream as your product get famous and company growing large, that developer have no choice but need to place it on open shelf in SJW infected countries.

    Now SJW Extremist Journalist (or blogger when they feel like it) are everywhere, as their article title is really attractive click bait, which makes them tons of money, and their content create so much hate. All SJW done is only censorship to content which everyone hate, super intensified racist towards each other, extreme hate towards low pay cops and other hate culture.

    For me I suggest to make it slightly family friendly, they can make the game box design less fanservices. Also they can make options to turn off fanservice and they can play the game while SJW family member are around.

    Welp, looks like we'll have to import non-US-region versions of the games to get our racy content.

    Nope. This was all a misunderstanding due to shitty SJW "journalism" and "localized" translation.

    And they wonder why we need GG.

    A big nosed rabbi must have tried to stuff a large bag of money in The Director's lap to make Him help the jewish-crusade to rob Asian Men of Self-Affirmation and Confidence (including in Their Own sexuality). The director may have been tempted for a second, but remembered that unlike a hollywood hebrew or rabbi He has principals.

    Good on Him for ultimately sticking to His principals, but all the same: jews proving hitler right since 1945.

    Really wish people just grow some fucking tougher skin for this kind of stuff. Both the FANSERVICE AND GAMEPLAY are the selling point for this series. If you hate the fanservice just play another game because its literally built into the gameplay. Reviewers bashing game for fanservice would gladly see this game forced into import stores like Dead or Alive Xtreme 2. Would blacklist these reviewers with no hesitation.

    Well, its not that simple. A lot of the girls are pretty young and Mirai is absolutely tiny, giving the player the ability to dress her up in skimpy outfits and making her spread her legs for viewing pleasure is counter western society. I dont dont have a problem with it, I just know that its not as simple as "grow a pair" whatever that means in this situation.

    Dude are you serious? Most of the girls in the series are underage (also FICTIONAL) and the games can be legally sold in the west *including the petite Mira and Ryobi fanservice*. Could give a rats ass whether people approve of whatever poses Mira (or Ryobi makes) when I'm enjoying game. If you want to play japanese fanservice you can either nutup or hand in your balls to the sjw. Problem most people have nowadays their afraid to stand up for their sleaze. Well good sir I love my sleaze very much.

    Probably your comment would have any weight if you were posting on a site that didn't advertise porn games and movies. Personally love all this shit and pretty comfortable with were I'm at in life. Though keep fighting the good fight keyboard warrior!

    lol that's good for you darkjoe, be proud of something so dumb and shameful. You're an inspiration for all basement dwelling losers that care about awful fanservice in their crappy anime games.
