Watch Murasame Flail Around And Be Awkward In Senran Kagura 2

By Sato . July 24, 2014 . 10:31pm


Marvelous recently streamed a special “Summer’s Big Breasted Festival” to celebrate the upcoming release of Senran Kagura 2: Deep Crimson, where they shared a look at the series’ first playable male character, Murasame.



If you’re not too familiar with Murasame, he might appear to be a talented and handsome young man, which would make sense considering he’s the older brother of Ikagura. Unfortunately, he’s actually kind of a klutz.


This is immediately noticeable at the start of the video, where you can see the kusarigama-wielder face-planting around and being awkward in general. He’s not exactly a ninja, and he doesn’t transform, so gender aside, he’s still a little… different.


Murasame doesn’t exactly excel at anything, but he still has what it takes to give enemies a beat down (in his own way). Players can get Murasame by using a save data from Senran Kagura Burst or by purchasing him as a DLC.


You can also read our earlier interview with producer Kenichiro Takaki about why he decided to put Murasame in the game.


Senran Kagura 2: Deep Crimson is slated for release in Japan on August 7, 2014 for Nintendo 3DS.

    Haha, that’s actually really hilarious. Nothing cooler than a guy trying to be cool! He’s totally fine though. That was intentional, he promises.

    • idrawrobots

      I was not thrilled about a guy being playable but this is amazing. He is so lame. He is the Luigi if the game and it makes me wan to play as him.

      • mockturtle

        Say that again, I dare you.

        EDIT: Aaaaand my Luigi death stare pic has vanished into the ether. Pretend there’s a Luigi death stare right here.

        • Limbless

          Man, I must have a great imagination.

          • mockturtle

            LOL I don’t know why it’s back now.

        • idrawrobots

          I love Luigi, but I don’t deny his greatness comes from overcoming just how awkward and how much of a coward he is.

  • Suicunesol

    Darn, they didn’t show the stripping cutscenes…

    …did I just say that?

    • AkuLord3

      Oh you know what you said. Search your feelings, you know what you want!

  • British_Otaku

    This game has online play according to the eShop profile and I made a number of notes on the game’s nearly three hour livestream here:

  • KuroNathan

    but he got 2nd place in a junior kusarigama competition!

    • MXC

      Actually it was 7th place… and it was a local competition not national or anything like that so…

      • KuroNathan

        woops, been a while but lol. He keeps repeating it like he’s so proud of 7th in a local competition.

  • Ritsuioko23

    Oh a guy in this game!

  • Mecha_the_Hedgehog

    Well Senran Kagura meet your Dan/Mr.Satan for your series. Dont really know if I’ll play with him.

  • Namuro

    I’m liking this guy already!

  • Armageddon

    Haha be awkward.

  • NeptuniasBeard

    He’s not clumsy, he’s falling with style!

  • Michael Richardson

    No transformation sequence in the game for him? I’m mildly disappointed.

    The game is looking quite a bit better than Burst, though.

  • Neppygear

    2014 year of Murasame

  • Little does everyone know, Murasame’s weapons are made out of plastic so he can’t hurt himself lol

  • I wonder which will ultimately be lolzier, the video or the comments~.

    Either way, it’s interesting and amusing to me that they kept him infused with moe too.

  • I think they chose a good character for the male. He’s a total joke character. Even in the anime he gets his ass kicked by girls.

  • Lumi

    Wait what? Why a DLC character??? Or I have to buy the previous game???

    I just realised that if there was a NA physical release I could find a friend to borrow the cartridge for 5 minutes to do the unlock…

  • Halexies

    Goodness he’s freaking hot. I’m all for some male fan service this time around.

  • Kayriss Wins

    Damn, why would they cut off just before the Haruka-sama battle?
