There are protagonists being transported into another world troups in anime. I will get to that toward the end of this post. Naofumi is a shield warrior and the chosen one. He is one of the chosen warriors to save Melromac. There is a spear warrior (Motoyasu), sword (Ren) and bow (Itsuki). These four warriors have to save the Kingdom of Melromac from Catastrophe. Naofumi early in the series gets used by the King’s Daughter named Matly. Matly travels with Naofumi and uses him. Naofumi was dumbfounded and mistrust people after being setup by Matly.

Eroge video games is visual novel about sexual intercourse and act. Visual novel have subgenres and hidden content in their games. Before we talk about adult games and eroge. I will not post links nor 18+ pictures in this post. Hopefully keep it clean in this website and make readers turn heads. That being said, in the anime and manga community. We know about ecchi because it’s non-adult content. Sometimes ecchi goes beyond than it portray to be. There is another term called Hentai which is the same as Eroge. Hentai means pervert in Japan and adult content. It is very popular in Japan and grounded in the US. Video game developers make titles that suits gamer’s fantasies. You are a main character surrounded by beautiful girls with different bra sizes.
That’s call a Harem game, although it’s overplayed in anime. There are couple of games that have adult content. 1990s Sogna with their Viper series, School Days and Variable Geo. Those games have adult content and not suited for children. Honey Select Unlimited is a VR eroge game that allows player to create a partner. There are different eroge genres and styles of the games. It doesn’t always revolve around Visual Novels. You guys will have to google and see what’s up. Did I mention that some video game hosting sites like Steam, Nutaku and others have them? There is a new article about Steam talking off uncensored games.
What is the problem with video game live action movie adaptations?
Video game live action movie adaptations becoming stalagmite throughout the years. In the early 80s movies have been booming with action-packed, drama and love story. When it time to make a video game adaptation. Developers get little time to prepare it. They want to release it before or after the film. Normally, these adaptions get mediocre reviews and little recognition. Directors and producers cut some parts of the source materials. Want to create their own iteration of the film. The first movie adaptation is Super Mario Bros film (a very bad one). Super Mario Bros is based on the same name of the Nintendo game. In the movie, there is no Mushroom Kingdom but an unknown underground city. This film is notoriously bad and consider the worst video game adaptation ever.
Mortal Kombat film was average and faithful to the source material. The acting was subpar and the characters were portray well. Mortal Kombat: Annihilation was awful with their CGI animailty and abysmal fight scenes. Street Fighter (1994 film) was another cult following movie. Where Raul Julia’s character M.Bison says (of course!). I think the movie is better than Mortal Kombat and Super Mario. Ryu is not the main protagonist but Colonel Guile (Jean-Claude Van Damme). Street Fighter: The Legend of Chun-Li was the hero in this movie. I have watched Street Fighter but no The Legend of Chun-Li. In my opinion Street Fighter: Assassin’s Fist web series is the best out of both. The web series explore Ryu and Ken past with their master Gouken. Later on Street Fighter: Resurrection is based on Street Fighter V and both series is on Machinima.
