Review: Senran Kagura Reflexions

September 12, 2018 1 min read

The Senran Kagura franchise has always straddled the fine line between ambitious hack-and-slash and straight-up filthy fan service. It’s never been one to shy away from its more questionable content and each subsequent release has basically doubled down on everything the series holds near and dear, which is to say, big boobs and putting anime girls in compromising positions. It’s objectionable for sure, but all a bit too silly to be taken seriously.

Senran Kagura Reflexions strikes a different tone. It’s not very amusing, and it’s certainly not a fast-paced action game. Instead, developer Honey∞Parade Games is taking a softer approach, creating a more intimate setting. It strips away all of the muscle memory requirements the past games have imbued in me in favor of pure fan service.

It also strips away the fun.
