Thanks for reading Cheer Raider & SABRE Panther: Cold Front! It's been a great ride creating the series.
In the end, perhaps the only thing more insane than assigning opening and closing theme songs to a prose story is choreographing a fight scene to a song in a prose story. All the extra work on the animations and such was worth it, but I hope it's a long time before another story inspires me to that level of crazy.
And yes, the opening with the self-referential movie is a rip-off/homage to the first Naruto movie.
...And thanks for reading Cheer Raider & SABRE Panther! I hope everybody enjoyed it!
So if that was supposed to be analogous to a 13 episode television "season", it does raise the question, will there be a season 2? Well, the answer is no. But, popular anime series that have reached their conclusion do often get one other type of continuation: a movie! So I'm going to do something along those lines. What this means is a giant-sized stand-alone adventure that I will publish in one start-to-finish piece on or about March 3.
For anybody not familiar with mecha musume, which Jennifer became for her final battle power up, I shall now bore you at length explaining it and giving examples:
Mecha Musume, or Mecha Girls, is all about sexy girls wearing armor. Not full body armor like you see in Bubblegum Crisis or Iron Man, but partial armor that shows off most or all of their feminine curves. Oftentimes with large wings, rockets, or weapon structures mounted on their backs. Sometimes it actually is a smallish mecha they are piloting, but with an open-air cockpit to keep their sexiness on display. Another common subgenre uses armor themed after WWII military vehicles.
The originator is Japanese artist Mika Akitaka, whose MS Girl artwork put girls in armor inspired by mecha from the Mobile Suit Gundam series. These days it's not uncommon to find mecha musume fanart for any popular mecha series, like Super Robot Wars, these Zoids girls from artist Ueyama Michirou, and Transformers girls from artist Shibamura Prime a.k.a. Silas Zee.
Some video games with mecha musume are Triggerheart Exelica (with some pretty nice looking H-doujin out there) and the Cosmic Break / Cosmic League series of MMO games. I even found some mecha musume themed hentai games, but no English versions, so all I can say is thank goodness for the people that upload dumps of H game CGs to gallery sites because these are amazing: Iron Maiden Hagane no Otome (CG gallery & manga), Mecha-Mimi (CG gallery), Madou Souhei Kleinhasa (CG gallery).
Recent toy lines with mecha musume include: Busou Shinki from Konami, which had a variety of artists design them in pairs. The toy line was originally connected to an online game, and eventually saw Playstation Portable games and an anime. Frame Arms Girl from Kotobukiya, a series of model kits based on their own Frame Arms series of original design Mecha model kits, also with a recent anime. (Special mention to another Kotobukiya model kit series, Megami Device.) Armor Girls Project from Tamashii Nations, which does characters from a variety of series, including Gundam in the style of Mika Akitaka. Desktop Army from Megahouse. Also a trio of bunnygirl Haruhi Suzumiya figures from Composite Ver Ka and a Zoids Shield Liger girl from Figutto.
Then there's the cosplayers, oh my God. If I saw a girl in a costume like these at a convention, I think I'd follow her around the rest of the day leaving a trail of drool behind me.
Here are some gallery sites collections of mecha musume artwork, with sometimes broader definitions of what's included.
Did I say no rape monsters earlier? And you believed me?
The eyes rolled back, mouth hanging open expression that Jennifer takes on once she is overwhelmed is a particular favorite of mine. The Japanese term is ahegao, a lot of the image boards use the tag fucked_silly for it too. You may recall the same expression in "Interview" after Claire's first double-vaginal-double-anal tentacle fucking.
I would like to thank everybody who has been reading week by week as these were first released, because I got to cliffhanger the fuck out of you.
The pacing on this one is admittedly a little weird, what with rushing through not one but two timeskips, but too much more of Matt without Jennifer around wouldn't have served any purpose either.
Bringing in an army base is kind of a throwback to my original concept, which would have had them on a base from the start. The military would have been using found super-tech to fight aliens or whatever, the magical girl was more a Clarke's Third Law girl, and the mech that came with it could only be piloted by some civilian guy because of reasons. The magical girl would have been fresh out of training but also the base commander's daughter for needless drama, and would have gotten together with the pilot at the end of the whole thing, probably after a lot of belligerent sexual tension. But I tossed all that out to convert it to porn, and I think for the better.
