Did you know that the Senran Kagura anime is actually an adaptation of a super-popular video game series? The first game was produced by Marvelous Entertainment and developed by Tamsoft in 2011. The theme of the entire series revolves around a group of female high school ninjas who train to fight against rival shinovi. Due to its erotic content, these video games fit perfectly into the Ecchi genre.
