Dengeki recently revealed that Ro-Kyu-Bu!’s star heroine, the Shiny Gift Tomoka Minato, will be joining the ranks of other light novel characters in the upcoming fighter Dengeki Bunko Fighting Climax. Here’s a look at some of her moves, along with the other new support characters, courtesy Dengeki Online.


Tomoka Minato (from Ro-Kyu-Bu!):

She may look small and fragile, but Tomoka has what it takes to keep up with the likes of Shizuo Heiwajima from Durarara!!. Her moves in Dengeki Bunko Fighting Climax revolve around a variety of tricky attacks that involve getting help from her fellow teammates of the Keishin Academy girl’s basketball club.


Next, a look at some artwork and details of the five new support characters that were recently introduced.


Hinata Hakamada (from Ro-Kyu-Bu!):


Tomoka’s teammate, the “Innocent Charm” Hinata Hakamada, will be joining her in Dengeki Bunko Fighting Climax as a support character. She’ll be providing support by using a charm effect to have some sort of effect on the opponent’s movement.


Koko Kaga (from Golden Time):


It is said that Koko will have a splendid appearance when she shows up in the game, and will throw her bouquet of roses as an attack. She also has an attack where she blows a kiss that has an effect of diminishing the target’s super meter.


Kino (from Kino’s Journey):


As a support character, Kino will show up with speedy movement and attack with a powerful gunshot. The attack will work against your opponent regardless of whether they’re on the ground or mid-air. After hitting, she rides away on her motorcycle, Hermes.


Mashiro Shiina (from The Pet Girl of Sakurasou):


In Dengeki Bunko Fighting Climax, Mashiro uses her mysterious ability that allows her to to draw something and have it appear out of thin air. As to how it’ll affect opponents, that’s still a mystery for now.


Erio Towa (from Denpa Onna to Seishun Otoko):


Erio sounds like she will provide support with the use of her futon for offensive and defensive actions. She can wrap the futon around you as a way to guard attacks and can also use it to hit enemies.


Dengeki Bunko Fighting Climax is set to launch in spring 2014 in Japanese arcades.

    Koko Kaga from Golden Time….
    I wanna play it now!

  • Servant BerserCAR

    FYI, Koko Kaga’s flower attack is very VERY painful. I… better not talk about this any further… *shiver*

  • Virevolte

    That artwork of Kino isn’t bad at all.

    • neocatzon

      Is it me or she looks more adult than in anime/ova?

      • DyLaN

        Maybe its the improved art style of Kouhaku Kuroboshi?

        • neocatzon

          *Googling the name* Holy.. original character design for Shigofumi and Sekai Seifuku. Pixiv..pixiv..

      • Virevolte

        Yeah, not much older, but the change of style brings out more of her femininity.

  • Arcana Drill

    You know, i’m more interested in the support characters than the playable cast D:

  • Crevox

    Sonic stage

  • Otoya

    What I really hope is that they will port into console or handheld in the future XD

    • AkuLord3

      What fighter isn’t ported to console and handheld (PC) after a while in Arcades? There are maybe some idk about but most of the times it does

      • Kelohmello

        French Bread’s never ported any of their fighting games from arcade onto a handheld before. only PC and two PS2 games.

        • ForteWily

          I don’t think that it’s French Bread’s/Ecole Software’s call to make… There only “for hire” on this one, I would suspect that that call goes to Sega. Which could mean anything, really.

          • Kelohmello

            You’re right, but all the same really only capcom and arcsys do ports of modern fighting games onto handheld.

  • Hagaren

    Only 7 playable characters so far, but 14 supports? I’m still looking forward to this game, but we really need more playable characters to be announced.

    • Probably like Arcana Heart where the support combinations with the main allow for different fighting styles or something along those lines, who knows.

      Game looks to be getting better and better tho, cant wait for some more actual footage instead of just screens. I wanna see more support video ^ ^

      • Hagaren

        Yeah, I’d also like to see some more actual gameplay. And a confirmation for console release would also be great!

  • AkuLord3

    Erio-swan <333 i know what support i will be using alot

  • ronin4life

    So many support Characters that should be MAINS, and so many mains that should be SUPPORTS…

    Also, This is the same Publisher that does the Dengeki Daioh monthly, right?

    If so, Make Yotsuba playable and everything will balance out.

    • Kelohmello

      It’s called Dengeki BUNKO for a reason though. Light Novels only.

  • HerosLight

    If it ends up having more supports than Playable, I think it’ll be fine.

    Just think of the first Marvel vs Capcom game, It had more supports than playable.

  • DragKudo


    • ronin4life

      Badass with a weapon and fighting skills = support

      Incest powered imouto = Main


  • Eder García

    right now support characters > playable characters

  • MitsukiIX

    /throws a vending machine at tomoka/

  • Kornelious

    Hmmm, looks pretty good, hopefully we’ll get a localization since we got Aquapazza (And a physical release none the less :0 )

  • DarkLight

    Wonder if they’ll bring out a console version?I think so and hopefully they bring it over to the west.
