What are Eroge Games?

An eroge is a Japanese video or computer game that feature erotic content, usually in the form of anime-style artwork. In English, eroge are often called hentai games in keeping with the English slang definition of hentai.

CG refers to anime-style artwork commonly used in these games, often distributed separately from the game, via the Internet, to people who just want to look at the artwork without playing the game itself.

Lei Fang Wallpaper

Character from DOA, Lei Fang has a strong dedication to self-improvement, both mentally and physically. Hoping to hone her own skills in DOA, she eventually wants to help others to do the same. At the same time, her age and general inexperience with the world around her can sometimes cause her to not fully think things through.

Somewhat arrogant, she doesn't hesitate to mock an opponent after a victory in battle. A common combo starter is the Renkan-Sho-Kind, which hits 3 times in succession, and depending on the terrain height and launch duration, can hit up to 6 times in succession.

Her kicks, similar to Gen Fu, are also excellent combo starters (such as Senren-Kyaku) and have an excellent execution and recovery time frame. Due to her varying attack string levels, she can be very difficult to counter against.

Her Chinese name, 麗鳳, means "beautiful phoenix" which is a common name for Chinese girls in Shanghai.

images above 400px by 73px

Air Gear is both a manga and an anime, and more recently it has been adapted into a musical.

Minami "Ikki" Itsuki, is a student and the leader of a gang. He is left a gift by his benefactors (the Noyamano sisters) who are keen on helping Ikki regain his confidence and pride. They supply him with a pair of Air Trecks, which he uses to settle a recent humiliation and in the process gets much more than he had bargained for. The Air Trek is a kind of inline skate, but it is customizable and even has an engine.
