    Nice! But I really wish the samples were bigger. Most of the time the pictures are so small that you can't really see what you are buying (in this case the background graphics for example).

    ^Agreed, I'm only really interested in the fantasy character versions, and I can't get a good look at the style/variety of faces and sprites. Gonna have to pass on this for now.

    Still no FSM stuff. :( Still, I really like both of these packs and will be getting them.

    I agree with the above posts, the sample images are far too small. They've been too small for a long time. It's hard to get a good idea of what you're buying.

    Well, the character busts are nice and I could probably use them on Visual Novel Maker, but as there are no guys, it might not work.

    As for the weapons, they are pretty cool. Though, there are probably free resources that are just as usable.

    Really like the Medieval Weapons pack. Would have loved more quirky weapons like shovel, broom, candycane and the like but it is still an attractive pack ;D (Edit: Btw for anyone looking, whtdragon has amazing joke weapons, and hiddenone has lovely non-typical weapons too!)

    Just my two cents. Usually I'm able to get a close look at the preview samples by increasing the website font up to 200% and then click on each screenshot, but even then this time I can't get a clear look at these previews.

    Out of curiosity, will there be more Male or even Monster Character packs in the future? Thanks for all the hard work.

    That battle girl pack seems awesome and I'm so tempted. But like others have said, I want bigger previews. I can't even make out the backgrounds as is. It's ridiculously small!

    I'll probably get the Battle Girls pack at some point. It would be really great to see a future Battle Boys characters pack, a Beast Kin characters pack, and a NPC characters pack.

    I'd like to see another battle girls pack AND (I guess) at least one battle boys pack done by the same artist. And if we get more I'd REALLY want the new packs to include more sci-fi backgrounds.

    I actually jumped the gun and bought this pack (on STEAM) and it was pretty good. There are some alignment issues with the busts (you can fix them yourself) and the backgrounds are decent at the very least (higher resolution originals would have been nice). The choice of locations, perspective and so on could also have been better for some of the backgrounds. However, modern/futuristic backgrounds/battlebacks are not very common, so for me the pack was worth it just to have the background images for VN cut-scenes.

    ...but the girl busts were quite decent as well. At least higher quality than many other bust-packs sold as DLC for MV.

    The busts and what not are fantastic in the Battle Girls pack, but I didn't like the animated battlers and sprites. There's something about them that doesn't look quite right. I think they might have slightly different proportions than typical MV sprites and battlers. I was also disappointed to find out that there's no sprites or battlers for the non-nurse and non-school girl characters; the girl with the night vision goggles gets no sprite or battler.

    Now when you mention it, yeah the sprites are kinda off. Unfortunately, that can be said for almost all of these packs (fantasy heroine pack are the same). They don't have the same smooth polish as the RTP sprites, unfortunately. And yeah, the google-girl looks cool but she got no sprite.

    These are some nice packs! I'm really interested in those weapons. It will be really useful for loot! I would also like to see an expansion that includes armor, skill books, items, etc.
