Fairy Fencer F Screenshots Will Blind You With Science

By Spencer . June 6, 2013 . 12:52am

imageCompile Heart revealed another Fencer in Fairy Fencer F. Harler is a researcher completely absorbed in her work. She’s a mad scientist type who is totally oblivious of her sex appeal. She doesn’t even care about her looks and dresses sloppily.


The news came with a couple more Fairy Fencer F screenshots of Fang, Tiara, and Alyn. Fairy Fencer F is slated for release on September 19 for PlayStation 3.

    I love the character art in the game already, well not that this isn’t expected since the last games Compile Heart made all had great art. The art, voice acting and anime character tropes are why I’m buying their games in the first place and they deliver on that.

    • Joshua Myers

      I started buying their games after Hyperdimension Neptunia loved that game series

      • Tyler Beale

        As did I (not the first one though, as it was a piece of shit).

        I’m looking forward to this game (and NISA picking it up…eventually), but due to the fact that pretty much every other CH game sans HN Victory has had technical issues, uh…..I’ll just watch it for now.

  • Epitome

    Lol thought I was looking at Sora at first.

  • $2445837

    Well, after seeing these shots, I wish I was blind but science has little to do with it.

  • Curan_Altea

    This game has my interest so far. Not saying I’ll buy it for sure, but at least worth following.

    Also Fang’s sword is so big and dumb. I love it though.

  • HerosLight

    Dat Mad Scientist, I love Tsunako’s character designs.

    I’m wondering, will Fang be the only playable-Male character in this game?

    Edit: Would appreciate it if someone found out Harler’s voice actor.

    • Koine Nacu

      Harler’s voice actor is Nao Toyama.

      • HerosLight

        Oh nice! Thank you very much!

        She did a great job voicing Yui (ROMCOM) and Chiho (Hataraku Maou-sama).

  • I’m blinded, but not by science XD

    • noctis_nox

      With what? Don’t tell me the twin valleys? :P

  • Testsubject909

    She can dress as sloppily as she wants.

    So.. I wonder what are the odds of a localization.

    • I think they’re pretty good considering it seems like a sister series to Neptunia.

  • DyLaN

    So she is the Pascal of FFF? I’m in.

    And the sprite art looks great! Still kinda hope not all sprites are “crop the character art and edit the facial expression” sprite. But something small like this is not enough to stop frm liking it. And Fang is looking very sleepy there.

    • We need more Pascals and Harlers in games lol =)

    • HerosLight

      It honestly reminds me of Raine from Tales of Symphonia.

      Harler goes “Scientist/Science Mode” instead of “Ruin Mode”

  • Favorite character already. The character designs are beautiful =^_^=

    • makubexnas

      i already blinded when i see the first pic.

      BTW,the title should be change to “Fairy Fencer F Screenshots Will Blind You With BOOB”. lol

    • Kai2591

      Very nice. and thanks for sharing :)

      Although personally, I prefer a more geekish look for the scientist character. But sexy underneath of course ;) ouehehehe~

    • Linhua

      … came here to say exACTly that… lol.

    • MrTyrant

      Great WE NEED SCIENCE! I like the character.

    • Radiosity

      She has some impressive assets. Just look at that purple book right there, yep, impressively purple and book-like *nodnod*

      On a slightly more serious note, I love Tiara and Arin but holy hell this girl is definitely my favourite too.

    • Demeanor

      Now imagine a beautiful girl COSPLAYING her… ^ ^

    • TyeTheCzar

      That’s sloppy? If sloppy is the new term for prostitute attire, then yeah, you can call that sloppy.

      Also a little reminder…

  • Detrimont

    *Blinded by plot

  • That’s sloppy-dress? Looks like she put a lot of effort into dressing this way. Like people who buy torn jeans ;)

    Well, I like :p

  • Kai2591

    in-game models looking pretty good.

    but will there be actual town explorations? or will you ‘explore’ merely by menus like previous compile heart games?
    Really hope its the former or it’ll be such a waste.

  • Lexaus_the_Alchemist

    That… doesn’t look like someone who doesn’t care for their appearance and dresses sloppily. I was thinking she’d look more disheveled …

    • puchinri

      I was too. I don’t mind at all that they made her sexy, but at least follow up on the sloppy part. ^u^;
      It probably would have made for a more charming and even sexier look and air about her, actually.

  • gamefreak86

    NISA, come out to plaayay. My wallet is waiting.

  • Gotta say, while the ingame models are like the ones in Neptunia, they look so much better thanks to the coloring and shading, I’m actually impressed!(I already liked the models in Neptunia, but they were too bright imo).

    New character sounds and looks also very awesome, sexy mad scientists are the best scientists~!


    Its looking good.

  • Sentsuizan_93

    And all of a sudden, Science just got more interesting. :P

  • Someone here knows the manga Vampire Knight? The uniform of the guy on these screenshots looks pretty similar to the ones worn by the characters in VK!

  • XiaomuArisu

    For Science!!!

    • personablaze

      For Bewbs!-er i mean yea science xD

      • XiaomuArisu

        Thats the spirit!

  • IshimaruKaito

    i think ima import this

    • Radiosity

      Already got my pre-order up, this’ll tide me over very nicely until October when Symphonia HD comes out.

  • fyi1191

    I’m interested in that girl who looks like Kotori from Date A Live.
    Fang looks like a dead man in battle.

  • Yan Zhao

    Want to play this just for the art. Cmon NISA or Arksys, dont leave us westerners hanging~

  • Very excited for the release of this game. I love the art style, always have, and am very pleased to see it being used again. I mean, it is the only reason I am sticking with Date A Live…

    Anyways, I cannot wait to see a full trailer showing off the gameplay.

    • ShadowDivz

      Artist is Tsunako. In the off chance you don’t know.

      • Thank you for that information, I do tend to forget the artist’s name… Not a good habit, but it does happen…

  • Mavalex

    -sees all the jokes have been made-
    aw…..But damn girl, that is some serious plot she is wielding

  • Keko

    Delicious, as expected from Tsunako.

  • puchinri

    It kind of irritates me when their description/intent of the character clashes with their design. Like, if she really dressed sloppy, she’d be in sweats or overalls or something (and that’s not even going to the sloppy/casual gear that’s science-aimed for fantasy characters). She still looks too dressed up (and she must be really dumb/oblivious if she doesn’t get how her boobs at least would draw attention).

    Really can’t decide if it’s the fashionista or the writer in me. Does make me think of Style Savvy though. They should have made her like Cyrene (was it?), who just rolls her eyes at people who swoon over her. It is fun to have mad scientists characters though, and I’m fairly interested in her~.

    As of now, I don’t see how this will be significantly different from anything else they’ve done (as far as character personalities anyway), but I am pretty curious and intrigued, so I intend to keep following it! ♥

    • Seems more like the sloppy in “dresses sloppy” is used a euphemism for the idea that someone is oblivious to how sexually desirable they are, as opposed to fashion sense.

      • puchinri

        It says she doesn’t care about her looks and dresses sloppy though, so I can’t see that being the case.

        And I’d still have a hard time believing she couldn’t see/understand some of her sex appeal (at least with the top and how huge her bust is). If she just didn’t care, that’d be one thing, but to be oblivious? Nuh uh~. lol

        • Well, yeah:

          “I don’t really care how attractive I am, I’ll dress however I want.”

          Sloppy doesn’t have to mean “poorly.” It can just mean “in poor taste.”

          “A euphemism is a generally innocuous word or expression used in place of one that may be found offensive or suggest something unpleasant.”

          They’re certainly not gonna write: “Dresses like a slut.” I’m saying that they could be doing it tongue in cheek, or just saying “She’s REALLY only 13 years old.”

          • puchinri

            Given the context, I would say sloppy was meant to imply messy/haphazard/not particularly stylish. At the very least, like she didn’t put time into her outfit (and picks stuff that lets her move comfortably and as a scientist, be somewhat covered).

            To me, sloppy would imply that top being longer and not tied up, but maybe halfway tucked in. Or her jacket is worn in a more casual (or ridiculous) manner. She looks put together. Like, I would not assume she did not care about her appearance (or that she’s a scientist). That means they kind of failed with their description.

            Now, if they said she realized she was sexy but indulged/didn’t care about others’ seeing it, that’d be something different and would fit pretty well (and be quite cool). But they didn’t. They chose a very specific description (and design). At the same time, if they can’t better convey what they’re doing, that’s still a problem, right? ^u^;

          • Whatever the case, I’m not convinced of their explanation lol.

          • puchinri

            I’m not either, nor are a few others apparently, haha~.

          • Radiosity

            Take a look at Tiara’s outfit. Now compare to Harler’s one. Sloppy in this instance seems to mean ‘sloppy compared to what other girls are wearing’, and it’s definitely not as intricate as Tiara’s outfit.

            It’s a different world, after all, different standards apply. Sloppy from their point of view might just mean casual compared to the overly detailed and gothic style of dresses the others wear.

            At a more basic level, they probably wanted a specific personality type for her but also realised that dressing her in overalls or something wouldn’t have sex appeal and went for something of a middle ground :)

  • wolfflame21

    This better be localized. I also hope that the promised cloud game thing from Sony will actually happen so I can play this on my PS4.

  • […] a researcher completely absorbed in her work.
    […] totally oblivious of her sex appeal.
    […] doesn’t even care about her looks and dresses sloppily.

    […She looks too dressed-up to give that impression.]

    • Landale

      Well, we know that she’s a Fencer like Fang, and Alyn is his weapon. It
      stands to reason that Harler’s Fury is a person as well. They’re
      probably the one that keeps her in line, given that “Mad scientist who
      can’t take care of themselves but somehow still looks good” is usually
      justified by a person there to do so.
      If they DON’T go that route though, then yeah definitely a WTF moment on character design.

      • Yes, it’s certainly a possibility.

      • PoweredByHentai

        It isn’t that she can’t take care of herself but more that she doesn’t care about social conventions as in dress codes mean nothing to her.

  • Demeanor

    Wow, that sword model is amazing. Although the wielder looks like Sora sleeping on the job XD Maaaaan what science she’s packing, I suddenly all interested in orbs physics! XD Also, loving how there are personifications of the weapons, gives me a Swordian vibe all over again!

  • Sergio Briceño

    “She’s a mad scientist type who is totally oblivious of her sex appeal.”

    My dream girl.

  • Alestaos

    Any series from this maker out in EU on vita or ps3? Never heard of compile hearts, this sounds intresting. So any games that have made it over here?

    • ShadowDivz

      Hyperdimension Neptunia. All 3 games, despite the negative reviews the first one got.
      And others that don’t come to mind since im staring at boobs.

      • Alestaos

        What are those game about? And are they good rpgs?

        • ShadowDivz

          They’re…. okay. Really hard to describe.

          It’s mostly about moe versions of the current gen console doing….something. I think they are looking for something, i don’t really remember it’s been awhile.

          Google some gameplay.

        • DyLaN

          The first game can be safely ignored. Basically “Console war on moe”.

          Second game is a reboot. The four goddesses and Nepgear are captured while trying to take down ASIC. Three years later, Nepgear is freed. She must now save her sisters and hopefully succeed at taking ASIC down this time.

          Victory: Taking place sometime after the second game, Neptune is kicking back and enjoying the peace from Arfoire’s defeat when she finds herself sucked into a portal and awakens in an alternate dimension. This world is a version of Gamindustri set in a time similar to the 1980’s, under siege by a group of enemies known as the Seven Sages. Teaming up with this world’s CPUs, Neptune must figure out a way to get home and defeat these new enemies.

  • Richard Evans

    OBJECTION! She’s totally oblivious of her sex appeal but she dresses like a slut? Girls oblivious to such typically dress modestly like men.

    • ShadowDivz

      First rule of logic in video games:WE DO NOT TALK ABOUT LOGIC!

    • puchinri

      Please refrain from slut-shaming, even as a joke or serious~. (Also, I know some very immodestly dressed fictional and real men, so I wouldn’t put all men in that category; and more power to them for it.)

      It’s hard to say whether they just didn’t realize what in the world they were talking about, or. . . they just don’t know what they’re doing between the design and what they’re talking about. x’D;

  • ShadowDivz

    I can already imagine it.

    Harler makes a guess lecture at some university.
    Friend:So how was the lecture?
    Harler: Really good. Everyone was totally captivated by the lecture, they didn’t look away for a second.
    Friend: You don’t say….

  • 愛憎

    Am I the only one seeing Sora’s apathetic twin brother?

  • Riseabovethesky

    That guy looks like an older Sora (from KH).
