As both humans and demons are only united by their common enemies, she points out, it’s almost inevitable that no matter which side wins the war, the various factions of the victors will turn on each other. However, if the adorable “King” had a collaborator on the human side, together they could end the war in a way that would ensure lasting prosperity for both sides!

That’s where birds of prey like Kylie, Reona, Chika, Emma, Kate, Zara and their Nakajima Ki-43 Hayabusa fighters come in. In a deadly business where a single mistake can mean instant death, the lady falcons of the Kotobuki Squadron will outfly and outshoot anything else in the stratosphere!

To further complicate things are her roommate’s rude maid, their cat-eared dorm leader, her roommate’s identical twin sister, and WAY too many other attractive girls, and the question is whether Kanako will die from frustration first, or her almost constant nosebleeds!

Cool I guess. At this point in life, I’m not a stickler for such things anymore. Unless it’s truly egregious, I’m fine with the older releases.

But again, that’s just me.

If it’s on 2 discs ( and it is) I’ll get it for the better video quality, as it was only on one when originally released
