The Senran Kagura-Themed Explosive Breast Ramen Festival is Taking Over Local Ramen Shops

To celebrate the encroaching launch of Senran Kagura: Estival Versus on Playstation 4 and PS Vita, Marvelous has enlisted the aid of local ramen shops and bars to cook up dishes only fit for the fans of the voluptuous ladies of Senran Kagura. The new report comes via Famitsu, so let’s dig in:

Beginning on March 21st, various ramen shops in the Akihabara and Meguro districts of Tokyo will be offering a busty new menu, complete with waitresses and cooks that are wearing Senran Kagura: Estival Versus-branded happi coats.

Meguro’s Ramen Bar Snakku Izakaya will kick off the new Oppai Ramen menu. For those unaware of what a snakku is, it’s a nightclub (in the old sense of the word) where customers of one sex (usually male) go to pay a bunch of money to sit and drink and chat with employees of the opposite sex.

As the leader, gravure idol Hayakawa Takako-san (pictured wearing the grey wig) and other explosive breast staff are leading the charge with the ramen shops. The way of doing this is with hot water cutting. High and low, shaking cups of ramen lead to an explosive breast hyper battle.

With Takako-san participating in the event, she was asked if she had to participate in Senran Kagura as a fighter, how would she fight. The answer was that since she loves alcohol, it’d be drunken boxing.

You’re probably wondering why Marvelous decided to have a tie in with Yumi’s school, and Takako-san dressed as her? According to Marvelous, among the leaders of factions, Yumi has the largest bust and as such, she gets her own dish:

Yumi’s Cute Ramen featuring bouncy cream. Oysters and chicken create a wonderful sensation. Yumi’s sense of cute as justice goes through with a white base adding the finishing touch of cuteness. In the middle, a raw cream flavors the chicken, and when blended in creates a creamy texture.

There’s also a baguette, which is served on the side with corn. There are a lot of clever ideas that went into making boob ramen that each of the famous restaurants considered.

There are extra goodies on hand, including an original lunch mat and a “gorgeous prize” that will be awarded in a breast lottery. Marvelous is really hyping up Estival Versus, dubbing this entire event the “Explosive Breast Ramen Festival,” in both Akihabara and Meguro.

Snakku Izakaya is currently preparing for the event, which runs through April 5th. They have warned locals that they may run out of ramen (always a possibility in ramen shops), and in that case, they hope for your understanding.

Senran Kagura: Estival Versus is hitting Playstation 4 and PS Vita on March 26th in Japan.

    Now that’s what I call advertising. 10/10.

    Wish more video games would do this. Seems like a well considered and fun way to advertise. Good thing shrill harpies will whine about this like they whined about the brilliant Bayonetta ad.

    “Might run out of ramen…”

    That’s fine. The food isn’t why I’d be going.

    Niche games always get such fun events in Japan.
    Busty sushi shop cooks or fantasy dressed maid cafes and that sort of thing.

    I wish we had something like that in the West, but it would probably cause more trouble than its worth.
