Asuka (飛鳥) is a playable character from the Senran Kagura videogame series. She makes her debut in Senran Kagura: Portrait of Girls. A 2nd-year Hanzo student, Asuka is energetic and willing to work as hard as she can. Her grandfather was apparently a great ninja himself, whose influence contributes to Asuka's earnestness about her Kunoichi training.
Asuka is a small statured girl who has her black hair tied in a medium sized ponytail with a white ribbon bow. In her turnover costume, she dons a uniform composed of a yellow vest, green plaid skirt, and a white shirt with green tie. Around her neck is a small red bandanna worn like a scarf. She has red armguards on her forearms with bandages underneath, and straps around her waist to hold her two swords. On both legs she wears thigh high socks and brown formal shoes.
Asuka's grandfather and mother were ninjas however her father was just an ordinary person that attended law school at a prestigious university. Her father dreamed of becoming a lawyer however he was charmed by Asuka's mother whom he married and decided to open up a sushi shop with. When Asuka was growing up, she had a reputation for getting into fights and beating up boys and girls alike, to which Hanzo told her was an independent sword, without a compatible shield.
Skirting Shadows/Burst Edit
During this arc of the franchise, Asuka dreamt to be a legendary shinobi like her grandfather. Ever since her talk with Hanzo of the sword-shield pairing, she has aspired to become a full-fledged shinobi, while also learning the meaning of her grandfather's cryptic advice.
Asuka was able to first meet Homura while the Hebijo student raided Hanzo in search of Hanzo Academy's Super Secret Ninja Art Scroll to achieve ultimate power. After their battle, Homura had disgraced and questioned Asuka's "Path of the Shinobi", causing her much to think about.
When all of the girls of Hanzo went out to challenge their Hebijo rivals, Asuka battled Homura once more on the riverbank of the town. However, there was no definite winner. Although, it is implied that Asuka ended up on the short end of the stick. This caused her to train much harder and perfect the Hanzo-Style Full Bloom Art, her strongest in the story.
Asuka fought Homura one more time at the Hebijo stronghold on top of the roof, where Homura's loss of the other Hebijo weighed heavily on her, causing her attacks to be quite uncoordinated and weak. Though through self-motivation and sheer will, Homura invoked the Hebijo Super Secret Ninja Art Scroll, causing her to become Crimson Homura, now fully aware and even more powerful. Asuka and Homura had one more battle, leading to Homura's defeat and the monster Orochi's awakening. Asuka and the other girls fought valiantly against the monster and won, and after a short celebration, witnessed the Hebijo Elite walk off into the sunrise, implying a later appearance and more battles with her newly proclaimed, "strongest friend."
She uses two Kôdachi, or short Japanese swords although one sword is slightly longer than the other, in combat. Her Ninpo utilizes the power of toads.
