Girl-on-girl fightin' action, upskirtage, large breasts AND a perfectly executed German suplex. This manga has everything, yo.
On a whim, while lookin' for something a little different, I started reading Battle Vixens the comic book (manga) by Yuji Shiozaki. What can I say...I love it!
The story centers around the super-chesty and tough-as-nails Hakufu and her rough-ass life at Nanyo Acadamy. Everyone at Nanyo (including her blue-balled cousin, Koukin) is a toushi: fighters that have each inherited a Magatama ( a jewel that draws out the full fighting potential of its owner). It gets a tad more complicated after that...I'll leave it to you to find out more n' shit.
What y'all really need to know is this: it's a hoot. The action sequences (there are many) are perfectly rendered and plotted out. I'm in awe of Shiozaki's drawing ability. He's created a manga title that appeals to the fan of action and naughty bits (there are copious upskirts and semi-nekkid to nekkid breasts...yummy.). Go get it, sucka.
