Namco Bandai Games has announced a free web series of five-minute shorts (with five episodes in total) based on its 1987 "beat 'em up" arcade game Wonder Momo. This news was accompanied by an announcement for a new game.

Warudemon, king of the alien empire, uses various tactics to hunt down Momoko and the people around her. Momoko decides to stand up against this aggression.

The first episode looks and sounds terrible...the character models are ok (But thank the original webcomic artist for that). Momo sounds terrible, non of the comics humor is in place Ep 1 was very dissapointing.

Wait, I've actually heard of this game.

I'm guessing there will be some light ecchi.
From the wikipedia page:
When Momo jumps, players can visibly see her panties. Also Momo needs to be wary of a photographer in the audience who is determined to get a peek under her mini-skirt. If he is successful, Momo will be "embarrassed" (stunned) for a short time. Additionally, one of the images that appears on the curtain (at the beginning and end of some stages) is Momo wearing only a towel

I dunno if I should watch this. The only good game-to-anime adaptations that I knew of are Devil Survivor 2, Persona 3 and Persona 4. ._.

I have lost hope in anime based on video games so I don't think that I will give it a try.

Too ridiculous, what's with that battle outfit? Gonna launch a boobs attack or what?


I was kinda disappointed to find out last night that it was a short ONA but I can tell you the game will most likely be good.

Weird premise. Might give this a try but not expecting much out of it.

The boobs will probably make me watch this.

Don't really like the art in the poster.
Hope the art in anime is better.

This seems neat. Can't be worse than most other video game adaptations.
