We get to take another look at Arthur and Lancelot from the London Revue, alongside their Bridven mecha. 

Another screenshots shows their home base, the Great Imperial Hotel in near the Chuo station. 

The focus of most of the screenshots is on two of our heroines, Atsuho Shinonome and Claris and on their iconic red and green Mugen-type mecha. 

Atsuho’s wields a giant hammer, and Claris holds a magic book. 

Claris’ special attack “Arbitre d’enfer” can lock onto many enemies and shower them with magical projectiles. 

Atsuho’s special attack is Shinonome Jinja no Kagura Hammer and is related to her work as a shrine maiden.

Shininome Jinja is the name of the shrine that belongs to her family, and Kagura is sacred dance dedicated to the Kami performed at Shinto shrines. 

You can check out the screenshots below.

Proud weeb hailing from sunny (not as much as people think) Italy and long-standing gamer since the age of Mattel Intellivision and Sinclair ZX Spectrum. Definitely a multi-platform gamer, he still holds the old dear PC nearest to his heart, while not disregarding any console on the market. RPGs (of any nationality), MMORPGs, and visual novels are his daily bread, but he enjoys almost every other genre, prominently racing simulators, action and sandbox games. He is also one of the few surviving fans on Earth of the flight simulator genre.
