Created by artist Buichi Terasawa, Takeru is a full-color computerized interactive manga. Follow the hero Takeru Ichimonji in his battle against an evil sorceress in the land of Yamato, sort of an amalgam of feudal and futuristic Japan.
Interaction consists of scrolling the mouse to uncover voice-over and action events, making choices that affect the direction of the story arc, and a few object-based puzzle games. Three chapters of the comic span 2 CD-ROMs, with over 50,000 frames of digital animation. Features a fair amount of violence and, of course, scantily clad female characters.
