posted on by Crystalyn Hodgkins
The July issue of the Hobby Japan magazine is revealing the main cast and a key visual on Monday for the Bikini Warriors television anime series. The series is based on Hobby Japan and Megahouse's fantasy figure line of the same name.
The main cast includes:
Yōko Hikasa as Fighter (designed by Cute Devil Girlfriend manga artist Hisasi), a professional in hand-to-hand combat who is especially skilled at using close-range weapons. In fact, she actually doesn't have any other special skills except for that. The Fighter overcomes her adversaries with just muscle and will.
Kana Ueda as Paladin (designed by Alice Soft's Onigiri-kun), a knight who uses every weapon in order to save the weak and defeat evil. It's often thought that this class is far above rank in comparison to the Fighter, but her weakness is being held down by large amounts of foes. She also has the weak point of not being able to understand views of the commoner, as a majority of paladins are born from high-class families.
Ai Kakuma as Mage (designed by Ninja Slayer From Animation character designer Saitom), a class that is unskilled in close-range combat, but can take out an enemy in one hit with their powerful magic. She's the bag of knowledge for the party, but isn't very good at communicating.
Chiaki Takahashi as Dark Elf (designed by Non Oda), a beautiful race that can use an extravagant sword and combine it with magic. She is quite good with her hands, and also has very good hearing. She can use her many skills to adapt to various adventures. However, she never gives her full effort in any situation.
Other characters in the figure line include:
Hunter (designed by Black Lagoon's Rei Hiroe), warriors that live in the wilderness. At times, she will hunt wild beasts, and at other times, she will make them her allies. She has much experience with the bow, and there is no one that can top her in survival tactics. On the other hand, she has little knowledge of modern tools, and it's said she doesn't even know how to shop.
Valkyrie (designed by Shining Hearts character designer Tony). It is said that ones that can be part of this race must be born with high levels of talent, or must have large amounts of experience. It is also said that they can only use spears chosen by God. She appears to have more powers than just the spear, but she won't show those skills off so easily.
The series will premiere on Tokyo MX TV in July.
The official website describes the project as follows:
The setting is a an RPG-style world with swords and magic, where adventurers form a party to challenge the demon king's right to rule. But, the adventurers all have beautiful breasts, enormous breasts, and bikini armor!!
The figure line's official website is posting short dialogue stories that chronicle the bikini warriors' adventurers. The website notes that a manga and a game are also planned alongside the television anime series.
