Ikkitousen: Xtreme Xecutor Promo released!

It hasn't been a great weekend for yours truly.  In fact, it's been pretty lousy... but this went a good way towards making it better.  The promo for the upcoming Ikkitousen series came out tonight, and wow, it looks great!  Or awful, depending on your point of view.

It should go without saying that everything "below the fold" is NSFW, but I'll say it anyway:


Okay, right off the bat we're introduced to a new character, Bachou Mouki, and here's the first look we get of her:

Yup, it's Ikkitousen all right! Sorry about the mismatch on the screencaps, but it appears that the animators have discovered the concept of perspective.  Her face?

Ryomou may just have a challenger in the "Wonderduck's favorite Ikkitousen character" all of a sudden.

Of course, it wouldn't be Ikkitousen without constant pantsu, and boy does the promo deliver.  Everywhere.  All the time.  This is a feature, not a bug.

It also wouldn't be Ikkitousen without Hakufu the moron.  Unfortunately.

Hello!  Must be chilly.  We're going to finally get the ultimate fight: Kan'u Unchou the unbeatable vs...

...the person fated to kill her, Ryomou Shimei... and their individual dragons are involved, too.

Oh, I cannot wait.

UPDATE: here's the new bad guys.

You can tell they're bad, because they're not in schoolgirl outfits.

1 I didn't know Kan'u had a dragon.

2 After rewatching the promo, I think it'd be better to say that Kan'u was manifesting the spirit of the original Guan Yu, as opposed to a dragon.  Though there's the whole Jade Dragon thing from Series 2...

3 ...I don't know if I'll be able to stand watching another Ikkitousen series.  I realize I am committing otaku heresy by saying this, but panchira and shredded seraa fuku can only sustain my interest for so long, and --

hey!  no!  That's-- give me back my otaku union card!!!
