That sounds like music to my ears. Two of the greatest and most beloved TV shows from all time will return next year.

X-Files wraps up filming as Twin Peaks preps production

As one ‘90s revival TV show wraps production, another ‘90 revival TV show begins production. Over in Vancouver, season 10 of The X-Files is about to finish up production, while Twin Peaks is heading back to Washington state for its own long overdue revival on Showtime. Back in the ‘90s, viewers had a love for both FBI agents and the supernatural, at least according to the popularity of The X-Files and Twin Peaks.

The X-Files followed the lives of FBI agents Fox Mulder (David Duchovny) and Dana Scully (Gillian Anderson) as they investigate the paranormal and uncover the US government’s conspiracy regarding extraterrestrials. The show had nine seasons, spawned two feature-length movies, a comic book series, and is returning to Fox with a revival mini-series, which will be considered the tenth season of the show.

Scully_Mulder_The_X-Files_PilotThe good times are back again! Gillian Anderson and David Duchovny in The X-Files Pilot, originally aired on September 10, 1993.

According to YVRshoots, David Duchovny just wrapped almost three months of filming in Vancouver. The actor shot his last scene with costars Gillian Anderson and Robbie Amell; the latter will be playing a new character in the series, Agent Miller. The fan-favorite Lone Gunmen were also spotted on the set, but unfortunately, no photographic evidence was provided.

Duchovny flew out of Vancouver today after his last scenes:

From Canada to Washington state, the crew for Twin Peaks has started prepping for that show’s revival. The creative minds of David Lynch and Mark Frost brought Twins Peaks to ABC in 1990 and the show featured some of the most interesting surrealism to grace any broadcast network. As Agent Dale Cooper (Kyle MacLachlan) investigates the murder of high schooler Laura Palmer, he finds that the town of Twin Peaks is not quite what it seems. 25 years after the show was cancelled prematurely, Showtime and David Lynch announced that the series would be revived on the cable network. Despite issues between Lynch and Showtime, the show is set to premiere in late 2016 or early 2017.

As first order of business, the production crew has taken over Twede’s Cafe, the same diner used in the original series. To return the cafe to its Twin Peaks look, the neon lighting has been removed from the Twede’s sign:

While there’s no word on when actual shooting starts, actress Madchen Amick who played Shelley Johnson on the show teased her familiar waitress outfit on Twitter:

It’s all happening again!

With Twin Peaks coming back to TV screens, fans will finally be able to get the answers they wanted from the show’s season 2 finale. Because of the show’s cancellation on ABC, the finale left viewers wondering what happened to their favorite FBI agent for 25 years. That’s a lot of years to be left wondering and will bring the expectations for the next season at an ultimate high.

While it has not been as long for X-Files fans, it’s also prudent to approach the new revival series with caution as the last time we saw Mulder and Scully in the film The X-Files: I Want To Believe, the story failed to address or touch upon any alien conspiracies and this ultimately left fans disappointed.

With shows like Twin Peaks and The X-Files sporting dedicated fanbases, the creators of each series will need to meet lofty expectations and it may be a challenge to please everyone at this stage. The X-Files returns on January 24th, 2016. Twin Peaks will continue either in late 2016 or early 2017. Source: Screen Rant.

Welcome to Twin Peaks

welcome_twin_peaks

It’s hard to believe, but it’s true. One of TV’s most cherished cult series, Twin Peaks, will be returning to the small screen as a limited, nine-episode series on Showtime in 2016. The show’s creators, David Lynch and Mark Frost – who teased its return with “twin tweets” last week, each writing “Dear Twitter Friends: That gum you like is going to come back in style! #damngoodcoffee” – are currently working on scripts. Lynch is planning to direct each episode. The cast has yet to be revealed.

“The mysterious and special world of Twin Peaks is pulling us back,” Lynch and Frost said in a joint statement. “We’re very excited. May the forest be with you.”

kyle-maclachlanFans of the classic 1990s series will be happy to know that Kyle MacLachlan is now officially set to reprise his role as FBI Agent Dale Cooper! He commented his return in a twitter: “Better fire up that percolator and find my black suit.”

LauraPalmerFrost confirmed the news with a tweet linking to a video on YouTube, which shows the series’ deceased prom queen character Laura Palmer pointing at the camera and snapping. The words “25 years later” and “2016” are superimposed around the welcome sign into the town Twin Peaks. The original series ran for two seasons, totaling 30 episodes, between 1990 and 1991 before ABC canceled it.

Lynch and Frost first considered revisiting the series about three years ago, inspired by a scene where Palmer said, “I’ll see you again in 25 years.” “That suddenly seemed like an entry point,” Frost recently told The New York Times. “Everything flowed from there.”

The original series centered FBI special agent Dale Cooper, played by Kyle MacLachlan, attempting to solve the murder of Laura Palmer, as he faced a number of supernatural phenomena. The residents of Twin Peaks were also notable for their strangeness, including characters who carried logs and a shadow universe where one character spoke backwards. Showtime plans to rebroadcast both seasons of the original series in advance of the new season.

twin-peaks_1The new season would be set in the present day and would carry forward the story line, accounting for the quarter century that has passed. It will go into production next year. “What more can I say – Twin Peaks with David Lynch and Mark Frost on Showtime in 2016!” the channel’s president, David Nevins, said in a statement. “To quote Agent Cooper, ‘I have no idea where this will lead us, but I have a definite feeling it will be a place both wonderful and strange.'”

A Blu-ray box set called Twin Peaks: The Entire Mystery, which collected both seasons of the series and the prequel movie Lynch made, Twin Peaks: Fire Walk With Me – along with 90 minutes of previously unseen footage – came out earlier this year. Source: Rolling Stone.

Wonder-Woman

Wonder Woman is an iconic superhero, who ranks right up there with Superman and Batman in terms of name recognition. And after being sidelined by her male counterparts for years, it’s a particularly great time for Wonder Woman now that DC has decided to give one of the first female superheroes her own film in 2017, starring Gal Gadot (Fast and Furious 6). In the lead up to her big debut, she’s also set to make an appearance in Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice next year, which will mark the first time the trinity has appeared together on the big screen.

Who’s That Girl?

Wonder Woman is a fictional superhero from the American comic books published by DC Comics. The character is a warrior princess of the Amazons (based on the Amazons of Greek mythology) and is known in her homeland as Princess Diana of Themyscira. When outside her homeland, she is sometimes known by the secret identity Diana Prince. She is gifted with a wide range of superhuman powers and superior combat and battle skills. She possesses an arsenal of weapons, including the Lasso of Truth, a pair of indestructible bracelets, a tiara which serves as a projectile, and, in some stories, an invisible airplane, Mental Radio, and Purple Ray that could heal otherwise lethal injuries.

Wonder Woman was created by the American psychologist and writer William Moulton Marston. The character first appeared in All Star Comics #8 in December 1941 and first cover-dated on Sensation Comics #1, January 1942. The Wonder Woman title has been published by DC Comics almost continuously except for a brief hiatus in 1986. Her depiction as a heroine fighting for justice, love, peace, and gender equality has led to Wonder Woman being widely considered a feminist icon.

wonder_woman_by_jeffachCreated during World War II, the character was initially depicted fighting Axis military forcesas well as an assortment of colourful supervillains, the god Mars and his godly cohorts, though in recent years more emphasis have been placed on characters, deities, and monsters from Greek mythology playing an adversarial role for her story arcs. In the decades since her debut, Wonder Woman has gained a formidable cast of enemies bent on eliminating the Amazon, including classic villains such as Ares, Cheetah, Circe, Doctor Psycho, and Giganta, along with more recent adversaries such as the First Born. Wonder Woman has also regularly appeared in comic books featuring the superhero teams Justice Society (from 1941) and Justice League (from 1960). Source: Wikipedia.

Unlike Superman and Batman, she hasn’t had countless movie adaptations that allowed the average movie viewer to familiarize themselves with her background and powers. Now that she’s finally swooping back to the forefront of pop-culture, here is a list of 10 Facts You Need to Know About Wonder Woman to help you prepare yourself when Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice hit theaters on March 25, 2016.

10 Facts You Need to Know About Wonder Woman

She’s the daughter of Zeus

wonder-woman-first-lookGal Gadot as Wonder Woman.

As one of the longest running running comic book heroes, Wonder Woman’s continuity has gone through several changes over the years. For a long time, her origin story remained the same: her mother formed her out of clay and she was brought to life by the Greek gods, which meant she had no father. Wonder Woman’s superpowers were a result of her blessings from the Gods, including superhuman strength from Demeter (Goddess of the Earth) and super speed from Hermes (God of Messengers).

But the origin story was changed significantly when Brian Azzarello rebooted the character as part of DC’s recent New 52 relaunch. In the New 52 reboot, Wonder Woman is actually the daughter of Zeus – King of the Gods. Charles Roven, one of Batman V Superman producers has said that the DC movie universe will follow the new origin: “Wonder Woman’s in it. We know that. She has powers, she’s a goddess. She’s a demigod. Her father was Zeus.”

William Moulton Marston created her to be a model liberated woman

wonder_woman_77Wonder Woman 77, October 1955.

In a comic book landscape dominated by male heroes, a consultant for DC named William Moulton Marston had an idea for a modern female superhero. The character that would become Wonder Woman was partially inspired by Marston’s wife Elizabeth, along with Olive Byrne, who lived with the couple in a polyamorous relationship.

Marston created the character to rival the strength of Superman, but also have all of the positive characteristics that he associated with females, such as fairness and loving of peace. He originally called her Suprema, The Wonder Woman, but her name was shortened before she made her comic book debut in All Star Comics #8 in December 1941.

Wonder Woman was granted her own series in 1942, and while it was meant to appeal to both sexes, the comic books included articles and advertisements designed to appeal to a female audience. She was quickly accepted into the superhero world, even becoming the only female member of the Justice Society (a precursor to the JLA). But it wasn’t all female empowerment, as she was quickly excluded from the team’s battles and relegated to the team’s official secretary. Men!

Marston had a hand in the creation of the Polygraph

marston

Marston wasn’t just a comic book writer and creator of Wonder Woman; he was also a psychologist, lawyer, and inventor. He is said to have invented a systolic-blood-pressure measuring apparatus, which eventually lead to the invention of the polygraph. Marston believed there was some connection between blood pressure and a person’s emotions, and he believed that women were more likely to be honest.

Although there isn’t any evidence of a direct connection, many people believe Wonder Woman’s Lasso of Truth, which forces anyone ensnared within it to tell the truth, can’t just be a coincidence. Some suspect it was designed to promote some of his psychological theories on emotions and truth telling.

She’s princess of the Amazons

ww_david_finch

Wonder Woman hails from Paradise Island, later dubbed Themyscira, which is home to the Amazons. Her mother is Queen Hippolyta, which makes her Princess of the Amazons. Inspired by Greek mythology, the Amazons are a race of warrior woman living free from men. The story of how the Amazons came to call the island home has changed over time, with one version saying that they parted from Greece to escape the evil deeds of mankind and another saying they are the reborn souls of abused women.

All of the Amazons are well-trained in combat from a young age, which makes Wonder Woman a formidable foe in a fight thanks to her combination of combat skills and god-like powers. At one point, Batman considered Diana to be one of the best melee fighters on the planet.

She is the Goddess of War

goddess_of_war

In the New 52, Diana spent a year of her childhood on the island under the guidance of Ares, God of War, further developing her skills in combat. When she refuses Ares’s orders to slay the Minotaur, choosing instead to show it mercy, she loses his favor and respect. But her tutelage and history with him becomes important later, when she is forced to kill her former mentor during a conflict with her evil half-brother. In the process, she herself becomes the new War.

While the extent of her powers as War hasn’t been fully explored, she can telepathically control and communicate with the world’s soldiers. Whether she also developed Ares’s former power to raise dead soldiers for battle is still unknown.

Her bracelets keep her powers in-check

wonder-woman-bracelets

Wonder Woman is one of the strongest DC superheroes, with superhuman strength that puts her at least in the same category as Superman. She has even overpowered Supergirl, who is sometimes considered more powerful than Superman, though Wonder Woman is admittedly aided by her Amazonian warrior training. It was long thought that her silver bracelets, which were created from the remains of Zeus’s shield, added to her powers since they are unbreakable and can be used offensively.

But in the New 52, Wonder Woman removes her bracelets in order to fight a God, explaining that the bracelets are what actually protected her opponents from her intense power. It remains to be seen how powerful Wonder Woman is compared to other superheros without her limiting bracelets on.

Her alias is Diana Prince

diana_prince

Wonder Woman’s secret identity is Diana Prince. In the Golden Age comics, the character was originally just an army nurse who bore a striking resemblance to Wonder Woman, but Wonder Woman arranged for the real Diana Prince to meet up with her fiance in South America in exchange for her credentials, and thus an alias was born. Wonder Woman continued to work for the army as Diana Prince, quickly attaining a promotion to lieutenant in Army Intelligence.

For a period in 1960’s, Wonder Woman actually lost her powers and lived as Diana Prince, opening a trendy fashion boutique in New York’s Greenwich Village.

She is a founding member of the JLA

jla_wonder_woman

The initial lineup of the Justice League of America, which debuted in 1960, included only one female superhero: Wonder Woman. Also included on the team were Superman, Batman, Martian Manhunter, Flash, Green Lantern, and Aquaman. Eventually, more females joined, including Zatanna and Hawkwoman. Wonder Woman is almost always depicted as a founding member, sometimes even acting as the groups leader along with Superman and Batman.

However, during one reboot, Wonder Woman was replaced with Black Canary as a founding member of the new Justice League. Wonder Woman was eventually given her founding member status back though. The latest version of the Justice League in the New 52, which drops “America” from its title, features Wonder Woman as the only female founding member once again, but Atom (Rhonda Pineda) and Elemental Women also join the team.

She’s wielded Thor’s hammer

wonder-woman-hammer

Thanks to the success of Marvel’s Cinematic Universe, almost everyone has heard of Thor’s hammer, Mjolnir. On the hammer’s side reads the inscription, “Whosoever holds this hammer, if he be worthy, shall possess the power of Thor.” In Avengers: Age of Ultron, much to do is made over the fact that Thor is the only character who can lift the hammer. But you might be surprised at the number of characters who’ve wielded it in the comics who aren’t the God of Thunder, including Wonder Woman.

During the 1996 Marvel vs. DC crossover that pitted Marvel heroes against DC heroes, Wonder Woman gets the opportunity to try her hand at lifting Thor’s hammer. In the comic, Thor loses control of Mjolnir during a battle with Shazam/Captain Marvel. When Wonder Woman stumbles upon it, she is deemed worthy of the power and easily able to lift it. But Wonder Woman, not wanting to give herself an unfair advantage, chooses to discard the hammer when it comes time to battle Marvel’s Storm, and she ultimately loses that battle when Storm zaps her with some lightning.

Previous live action adaptations

There have been many attempts at creating a live action Wonder Woman, most of them unsuccessful. In 1967, there was a failed TV pilot entitled Who’s Afraid of Diana Prince?, which was meant to have the same campy feel as the successful Batman series of the time. In it, Linda Harrison played Wonder Woman, while her alter ego, Diana Prince, was played by Ellie Wood Walker. Then, a made-for-TV movie starring Cathy Lee Crosby hit the small screens in 1974.

Just a year later, Diana would return to the small screen played by Lynda Carter for a new television show on ABC. It was cancelled after its first season, but CBS resurrected the show and kept it on for two more years. In 2011, NBC attempted to bring Wonder Woman back to television with their own television reboot. Adrianne Palicki, who now plays Mockingbird on Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., was cast as Wonder Woman, but the project was cancelled before the pilot could even air. Source text: ScreenRant.

The first Wonder Woman We Never Forget

Diana_Prince_Wonder_Woman_1967_TV_PilotThe first attempt to translate Wonder Woman to the small screen occurred in 1967. The success of the Batman television series led Batman producer William Dozier to commission a pilot script by Stan Hart and Larry Siegel. Batman writer Stanley Ralph Ross was then asked to perform a re-write, after Hart and Siegel’s script was deemed unsuitable. A portion of the pilot, under five minutes in length, was filmed under the title Who’s Afraid of Diana Prince? The piece starred Ellie Wood Walker as Diana Prince, Linda Harrison as Diana’s “Wonder Woman” alter ego and Maudie Prickett as Diana’s mother. This pilot episode was never transmitted on television, and the project was not taken any farther. The pilot has been circulated on the Internet, however, and is of interest to Planet of the Apes fans for the early appearance of Linda Harrison, who would later go on to play Nova in the first two films of that series.

ww-cathy_lee_crosbyWonder Woman’s first broadcast appearance in live-action television was a television movie made in 1974 for ABC. Written by John D. F. Black, the TV movie resembles the Wonder Woman of the “I Ching” period. Wonder Woman (Cathy Lee Crosby) did not wear the comic-book uniform, demonstrated no apparent super-human powers, had a “secret identity” of Diana Prince that was not all that secret, and she was also depicted as blonde (differing from the black hair established in the comic books). The pilot aired originally on March 12, 1974 and was repeated on August 21 of that year. Ratings were described as “respectable but not exactly wondrous”, and ABC did not pick up the pilot, although Crosby would later claim she was offered the series that was eventually given to Lynda Carter.

Though not successful at the first attempt, ABC still felt a Wonder Woman series had potential, and within a year another pilot was in production. Keen to make a distinction from the last pilot, producers gave the pilot the rather paradoxical title The New Original Wonder Woman. Scripting duties were given to Stanley Ralph Ross, who was instructed to be more faithful to the comic book and to create a subtle “high comedy.” Ross set the pilot in World War II, the era in which the original comic book began.

lynda_carterAfter an intensive talent search, Lynda Carter, who had done some minor acting jobs and had been the 1972 Miss World USA and a Bob Hope USO cast member, was chosen to play the lead role. For the role of Steve Trevor, the producers chose Lyle Waggoner, despite his brown hair not matching the comic’s blond Trevor, who at the time was better known as a comedic actor after several years co-starring in The Carol Burnett Show. He was also known to Ross as having been one of the leading candidates to play Batman a decade earlier, but it went to Adam West. Waggoner was also considered a pin-up hunk, having done a semi-nude pictorial in the first issue of Playgirl.

Although the pilot followed the original comic book closely, in particular the aspect of Wonder Woman joining the military under the name Diana Prince, a number of elements were dropped. It mainly omitted Diana’s origin including her birth on Paradise Island. The comic book Diana obtains the credentials of a look-alike nurse. Although the pilot shows Diana briefly as a nurse at one point, Diana takes on the identity of a Navy Yeoman Petty Officer First Class. As it was set during World War II, many of the episodes involved Nazis and war events.

One change, which was later to become synonymous with the show, was the transformation of Diana Prince into Wonder Woman by spinning. During the filming of the pilot, producers were trying to figure out a way to show how Diana Prince became Wonder Woman, when Carter suggested that she do a spin. The spinning transformation was later incorporated into the comics and into animated appearances such as Justice League Unlimited (prior to the Carter series, the transformation was depicted in the comics by way of Diana spinning her magic lasso around her body, with the lasso changing her clothes, or by simply changing at super speed).

During season one, Wonder Woman has the ability to impersonate anyone’s voice, which came in handy over the telephone. She did not use this ability during seasons two and three.

wonder-woman-lynda-carter-1

Unlike the earlier pilot, the comic book origins of the character were emphasized by the retention of the character’s traditional uniform (the design of which was interpreted by Donald Lee Feld, credited as “Donfeld”) with original setting and through the use of comic book elements. The series’ title sequence was animated in the form of a series of comic book panels featuring Wonder Woman performing a variety of heroic feats. Within the show, location and exposition were handled through comic book-style text panels. Transitions between scenes and commercial breaks were marked by animated starburst sequences.

Wonder Woman achieved solid ratings on ABC during its first season, but the network was reluctant to renew the series for another season. Wonder Woman was a period piece, and as such, it was more expensive to produce than a series set in the present day. Also, ABC thought that the 1940s setting limited possible storylines, with the major villains being Nazis. ABC did not renew the series, so Jerry Lieder, then-president of Warner Bros. Television, went to CBS with the notion of shifting the series to the present-day 1970s, which would cost less to produce and allow for more creative storylines. Unlike 20th Century Fox Television’s Batman, the series was produced without having a theatrical feature film in the middle of its production. In addition, none of the villains had recurring appearances. CBS agreed and picked up the show in 1977, and it continued for another two seasons. Source: Wikipedia.

The One and Only Wonder Woman

Wonder-Woman-lynda-carter-2Just like no actor who donned the uniform of the Man of Steel was able to achieve the success of Christopher Reeve, we are still waiting for an actress to match the fame of Lynda Carter as Wonder Woman in the public imagination.

Lynda Carter was born Linda Jean Córdova Carter in Phoenix, Arizona, on July 24, 1951, the daughter of Juanita (née Córdova) and Colby Carter. Her father is of English and Scots-Irish ancestry, and her mother is of Mexican, Spanish and French descent. Lynda Carter made her public television debut on Lew King’s Talent Show at age 5. During high school, Carter performed in a band called Just Us, consisting of a marimba, a conga drum, an acoustic guitar, and a stand-up bass played by another girl. When she was 16, she joined two of her cousins in another band called The Relatives. The group opened at the Sahara Hotel and Casino lounge in Las Vegas for three months; because Carter was under 21, she had to enter through the kitchen. She attended Arizona State University and after being voted “Most Talented”, dropped out to pursue a career in music. In 1970, Carter sang with The Garfin Gathering. Their first performance was in a San Francisco hotel so new that it had no sidewalk entrance. Consequently, they played mostly to the janitors and hotel guests who parked their cars in the underground garage. She returned to Arizona in 1972.

lynda_carter_2

In 1972 Lynda Carter won a local Arizona beauty contest and gained national attention in the United States by winning Miss World USA, representing Arizona. In the international 1972 Miss World pageant, representing the United States, she reached the semi-finals. After taking acting classes at several New York acting schools, she made her first acting appearance, in an episode of the 1974 police drama Nakia entitled “Roots of Anger.” She then began making appearances on such TV shows as Starsky and Hutch and Cos and in several “B” movies.

Carter’s acting career took off when she landed the starring role on Wonder Woman as the title character and her secret identity, Diana Prince. The savings her parents had set aside for her to pursue acting in Los Angeles were almost depleted, and she was close to returning to Arizona when Carter’s manager informed her that Joanna Cassidy lost the part to her. Carter’s earnest performance endeared her to fans and critics, such that Carter continues to be closely identified with Wonder Woman.

wonder-woman-3

In 1978, Carter was voted “The Most Beautiful Woman in the World” by The International Academy of Beauty and The British Press Organization. During the late 1970s, Carter recorded an album, Portrait. Carter is credited as a co-writer on several songs and she made numerous guest appearances on variety television programs at the time in a musical capacity. She also sang two of her songs in a 1979 Wonder Woman episode, “Amazon Hot Wax”. She was cast in the role of Bunny in Apocalypse Now (1979), but delays in the movie production forced her to back to the United States for Wonder Woman third season and her scenes were re-shot with Colleen Camp.  At one point in the Redux version of Apocalypse Now, a glimpse of Carter’s pinup is visible, as the only nude work ascribed to the actress outside of Bobbie Jo and the Outlaw.

When the series was canceled, Lynda Carter, upset by the overexposure of his image in the media as a sex symbol, has decided to invest more in his career as a singer and model for Maybelline cosmetics. Later, she starred the crime drama television series, Partners in Crime with Loni Anderson. She also made several works on television in the 90s, because of the re-syndication of Wonder Woman on such cable networks as FX and SyFy, and founded her own production company, Potomac Productions.

lynda_carter_todayLynda Carter latest works as actress include The Dukes of Hazzard (2005), Disney’s action comedy film Sky High (2005) and a return to the DC Comics’ television world in the Smallville episode “Progeny” (2007), playing Chloe Sullivan’s Kryptonite-empowered mother. In a recent interview to Today (watch here) to promote her tour “Long Legged Woman”, Lynda Carter said she still has her Wonder Woman costume and talked about the release of the new digital-first DC Comic book Wonder Woman ’77, the digital-first series that continues the adventures of the Lynda Carter Wonder Woman television series.

takamori_haruka_1

takamori_haruka_2Takamori Haruka is a female character and main protagonist in the Eroge game Beat Blades Haruka, produced by Alice Soft in 2008. She is also the main character in the Hentai three episodes series Beat Blades Haruka, produced by Milky, in 2009 and aired from Aug 25, 2009 to Sep 17, 2010 . She is voiced by Harumi Sakurai.

In the plot, Takamaru is a student at the Ten Treasure Academy, living an ordinary school life, seeking romances which are constantly interfered by Shihoudou Narika (the daughter of his apartment manager). One day, he fell in love at first sight with a transfer student named Takamori Haruka. On that very night, Takamaru and Narika became pursued by a group of mysterious ninja. Just when they thought all hope is lost, Haruka appeared in kunoichi attire. Haruka referred to Takamaru as “young boss”, and asked him to do “H” stuff towards her. This gave her superhuman power that enabled her to defeat the mysterious ninjas.

If you just like me, you don’t know much about the Hentai universe, Beat Blades Haruka (also known as Choukou Sennin Haruka) is a Eroge game (or H-Games, a kind of video game that has sexual content, that are very popular in Japan), and in almost all Hentai stories the heroes and heroines usually get their superpower after some sexual stimulation.
