Buso Renkin, Vol. 1

Review by Tom Good

Buso Renkin may be the first manga ever to provide a good reason why its female lead must always wear a miniskirt. The heroine Tokiko uses a magical weapon called the Valkyrie Skirt, which consists of four articulated robot arms with swords at the ends. Visually it reminds me of the mechanical arms of Doctor Octopus in the Spider-Man comics, but in an odd and disturbing twist, the appendages do not attach to Tokiko's torso, but instead emerge from her thighs. Since those giant arms would never fit beneath jeans, a miniskirt is the practical choice. [more]
