If you've been checking my site, or Click Stick's, you probably know about Cave's upcoming shooter, Ibara.

This seems to be a solid shooter from them, in the lines of DoDonPachi, but it would be fair to say that visually it doesn't innovates as much as their previous creation, Mushihimesama.

What is really interesting, is the character art, by Styleos, artist famous for working for SNK and creating characters like K', Maxima or Angel. Unfortunately SNK never had him do illustrations, but Cave knows better and he did the art here (and in Mushihimesama).

A friend helped me translating the profiles for the villains, notably fanservicey girls.

Pretty tough actually, I love this style.

Well, keep this short. I chose Lace because if it was a fighting game or something, I'd probably choose her.

Lace, because like deisied said, if she were in a fighting game I'd choose her first.

She also reminds me a lot of Vice, which is never a bad thing.

I totally agree with you, his drawing style is awesome!!

And refering to the girls, I chose Teresa, because she's the hottest one. Seeing her design just reminds me of unwrapping one of those expensive and sweet chocolates...

Does the first guardian look reminiscent of Mushihime or is it just me.

I like Midi. She's the cutest with the coolest costume and no bikini bottom. Lace is, indeed really cool, but I don't like her pants.

Lace has a lazy eye...
I like Kasumi myself. Plus, she's a designer.
Also, Midi is a bokuko, and I just hate bokuko.

Shasta or Kasumi, but I picked Shasta because she's flashing her rump.


I think it is still only assumed that Styleos did Mushi, but it's definitely a safe bet. It should be listed on his site though...

I pick Meidi, but not before adding the short skirt the (very cute) cosplayer of her used at AOU.

I have to pick only one? Kasumi. There.

I like the short skirt of Meidi. Midi doesn't look much of a tomboy to use "boku", but eh. (Most girls I know of who use "boku" tend to be tomboys.) Whether or not Shasta posing like that means she'll end up being the Marilyn Monroe of the game, I don't know. Lace's pants could be improved a bit. I have nothing witty to say about Teresa other the fact that she's sassy.

As opposed to Meidi's mini skirt which is not even a skirt. She's pretty though. I pick Midi cuz she's upbeat and cool.

Is says that she refers to herself as Boku in the profile though =) (maybe you knew and then I'd feel like an asshole for pointing it out).

But yea, I am so confused between Shasta and Kasumi, I mean, both of them in one character would rock =) I guess to balance out the Kasumi love...

Also Shasta is the name of a shitty Coke imitation (well actually it's ok) that you can buy in California.

I have to say, when I read the translated profiles earlier today on your site, my favourite was a tie between Kasumi Rose and Shasta Rose. So, when I came upon this poll, I decided to just vote for Kasumi (her name comes first, alphabet-wise...), but now it looks like Shasta needs my support more. -_-


Kasumi:
1) She uses "watakushi" just like Sumire oujousama~
2) Her picture makes her out to be really elegant!

Shasta:
1) She sounds feisty. =D
2) I like the aggressive-types!

I vote for Kasumi, and Shasta would make a 2nd place easily.

Wan't his name on the credits? (saw them on one of the videos posted on your site). Not sure, I shouldn't have deleted that.

I know girls who use Boku ... =P

Usually it's associated with a deep voice ... very 'non-cutsy' image...
