The world is in mortal peril. Sir Noi Crezant, the Lizard Knight, has been sent to gain the aid of the great warrior Amamiya Yuuhi in hopes of finding the Princess Samidare and protecting the planet from the incredible "Biscuit Hammer" poised to crack the Earth in two. Unfortunately Yuuhi wants no part of it, and the Princess doesn't prove to be the shining "hero of justice" role model that Noi had hoped for.

As a forewarning, this is my second review and consequently I’d like to try something a little experimental, so this review is going to be very Trope Heavy. For those of you who don’t know what that means: pull up a tab and go to, then, when you emerge some hours later blinking into the sunlight, head on back over [and congrats on breaking free of your Small Secluded World].

Lucifer and the Biscuit Hammer [also referred to as Hoshi/Wakusei no Samidare] is basically what would happen if you took What the Hell, Hero? and made an entire story around it. Hoshi no Samidare read more

At first glance The Lucifer and Biscuit Hammer may not look like anything special, however looks can be very deceiving. It very quickly blossoms into one of the most engaging, funny, and at some times tragic stories that I've ever had the pleasure of reading.

The story may not be anything particularly original, but it easily makes up for its lack of originality with numerous twists and quirks that make for an enjoyable read that never fails to surprise, right up until the last chapter. Little things, such as the Princess' motivations for wanting to save the world, or unexpected character designs keep it interesting. One read more

An alien guide appears and tells a small group of humans that the fate of the world lies on them. A series of duels between them and foreign entities will take place, and loss will result in the destruction of the world. But this is a group of flawed humans, and they are neither united in their cause nor equal in their abilities. How they deal with the continuing battles while losing allies and finding out more about the nature of the fights is the focus of the story.
Samidare is more interesting to watch, as everyone participates in the battles, but they are similar in the degree to which they cover the psychological battles they all must face. The characters in Samidare are a bit more off the deep end though.
The two of them are both battle shonen titles, and yet both have a darker sort of tone to them, and an excellent setting.
