The visual shows the two main characters of the series, Sonken and Yamada Asaemon. Although both of these girls have the same abilities, their personalities cannot be any more different.

Sonken is a warrior whose capability is said to surpass even the S-rank, but it is still unclear. Yamada Asaemon is an A-rank warrior whose ruthless personality has led her to have no friends.

Ikki Tousen is well known for its fan-service-heavy content, and this new series looks no different. With a new protagonist, new turf wars are inevitable, and so is a new antagonist.

After all, it will be Sonken’s responsibility to keep the other factions at bay. Will she be as dynamic as her predecessor warriors?

About Ikki Tousen

Ikki Tousen, also known as Battle Vixens in North America, is a Japanese manga series written and illustrated by Yuji Shiozaki.

The manga was serialized in the seinen manga magazine Comic Gum from April 2000 to August 2015, and the first tankōbon was released in October 2000, with a total of 24 volumes available as of September 2015.

The story starts with Hakufu going to school being practically forced to be someone she is not, having to attend flower arranging class and failing miserably at it. She is then met with her first actual fighter, who she follows outside.

She is able to defeat the fighter quite easily, causing her mother to transfer her to Nanyo, where she meets a wide assortment of other fighters, both big and small. This in turn sparks the story of the young buxom heroine who wants to be the top ranked fighter.
