        That's the German version I got, but you can even still get a new PEGI release around here. Nedgame has the PEGI version 2nd hand for €30 still, and the USK version I can find second hand for €25...

        KaiserDragon exactly my feeling. Some of these things I'd consider innocent in animes and games can have darker realities behind them that together form some horrible practices... It makes me apprehensive to invoke culturewide arguments in defending particular games, and makes me focus more on the particular content itself regardless of cultural backgrounds (cultural relativism is not my thing anyway)

        Retro8bit I think the US version's been out, as well as the streamed version. This was concerning a DVD rating for the UK release, which (I think) typically happens a LOT later

        But isn't that just short term thinking? After having finished the game with underleveled characters, won't I regret not having gone for the Exp boost??

        So far I'm still putting a lot of my materials on finding Bras and Panties in the hope I'll find striped panties with an Exp Boost to get the best of both worlds...

        I just got my copy in and am loving it so far! Controls much better than the original Bullet Girls, not nearly as floaty. And there is way more emphasis on straight up action, where as the original was a bit more slower paced and strategic. Awesome improvements in my opinion.

I like Senran Kagura etc. and I think they have a right of existence. I'm on the same team, but fuck, I can't stand those people that, every time a boob shows they go 'oh, this'll be censored because of SJWs' or 'this'll never make it over because of SJWs'.
