Senran Kagura Burst “Energy Drink” Will Help Keep Your Sword Pointy

By Ishaan . September 4, 2012 . 2:40pm

One of the promotional items Marvelous AQL came up with while promoting the original Senran Kagura: Portrait of Girls was an “energy drink,” created in collaboration with the Akahige Pharmacy, which deals in pharmaceuticals to help make your time spent with your significant other more… energetic.

 

Now, they’ve doing it again, to promote Senran Kagura Burst: Crimson Girls. A limited run of 1,000 “Second Round” energy drink bottles have been manufactured, and went on sale last week alongside Senran Kagura Burst’s release in Japan.

 

Additionally, one can find signboards for the Akahige Pharmacy within the game, too:

    What if my sword stays pointy for longer than 4 hours after I try this stuff….

      Go see a doctor.

      Well then congratulations, my friend. Make the most of it.

     I….uh…what?

    Pointy sword *giggle” Ohh I’m so childish.

  • ShawnOtakuSomething

    Otakus would buy anything to do with Anime and gaming  that they like watch this sell like hot cakes XD

  • Zonic505

    I think we all know the REAL reason to drink that stuff.

    ….it’s so we can play the game longer & better and get higher scores, right?

    • PoweredByHentai

      Longer, yes.  Better and higher scores?  Depends on the person and their aptitude.

    • Ryos

      Given the target audience, it’s doubtful they’d be using it for the “intended” purpose.  But ah yes, here’s a chance to gain another level before being banished by drowsiness!  

      On an unrelated note, I’d totally put down Bursting Boobs Producer on my resume.

    • Anesia Hunter

      the only thing that didn’t get used for it’s actual purpose were those facial tissues in the tissue box where the tissues came of homura’s cleavage.

  • Luna Kazemaru

    I don’t even know if I can comment on this…

    • Darkrise

      You just did. =P

  • Roubjon

    Boner Juice for everyone.

    Whoever is in charge of these marketing ideas deserves a promotion.

    • http://www.siliconera.com/ Ishaan

      I’m fairly certain that’s Takaki, since Kagura is his brainchild. 

  • MrRobbyM

    I think that was the dirtiest title I’ve seen on Siliconera.

    • Nitraion

      Damn straight…XD

    Dat Double Entrende

  • Darkrise

    It seems this article really has drawn out some perverted minds here. Makes it hard to whip out a good pun.

    • M’iau M’iaut

      Long as a bottle comes with a free yardstick, I am sure all will be fine.

  • Tom_Phoenix

    I guess if you’re female, it will make your…..”assets” bigger than usual.

    • amagidyne

      Or…

  • M’iau M’iaut

    This comes from the same mindset that sees Peach Princess include a pack of tissues with all their shipments. 

  • http://www.siliconera.com/ Ishaan

    You guys are all making a big joke out of this, but that “energy drink” is exactly what the headline says it is. :P

  • personablaze

    ………Um…….Hm…….I…..I dont know what to say except…This is the best title I have ever read :p

  • http://epiclyamazing.wordpress.com/ AzureNova

    Also, best title on Siliconera so far lol

  • Crok425

  • Hinataharem

    Ishaan has the best headlines. Period.

  • Mrgrgr and Unacceptable World

    Sword pointy ehh?^_^ Ishaan you one sly fox.^_^

  • XypherCode

    I presume the keyword for this post is “pointy”. XD

  • British_Otaku

    Bursting Boobs Producer, Kenichiro Takaki is my hero.The wonderful ways in which Senran Kagura is marketted knows no limits, anime, manga, tissues and… energy drinks which get posted up with amusing titles by Ishaan (you earned some points there).

  • Just Tim

    And what’s the ingredients list on this one?  I hope it doesn’t have high fructose corn syrup, as regularly used on their bottled ramune.

    For the record, Amp has HFCS.

  • https://twitter.com/mikedo2007 mikedo2007

    I read about this on Kotaku and ANN, I wonder if viagra is one of the ingredient for this.  I would like to have something like this in US so when my girlfriend and I take it to the next level, I can at least have something to help make my “relationship” more interesting for my girl.
