Senran Kagura: Spectrum Versus - Determination of the Girls (閃乱カグラ SPECTRUM VERSUS -少女達の決心 Senran Kagura Spectrum Versus -Shoujo-tachi no Kesshin), or more commonly Senran Kagura: Spectrum Versus is an action/ninja/magical girl fanseries produced and created by Cure Wonder. The series focuses on a group of five good shinobi who are neurodiverse.
Confirmation and ProductionEdit
Senran Kagura: Spectrum Versus was created when Cure Wonder thought of an idea for a fanmade series of Senran Kagura due to no Senran Kagura Fan Wikia existing. The idea also included a group of shinobi who were forced to live like renegades due to their developmental disabilities yet they still had hope and believed in the saying "no excuses, no limits", a group of shinobi who strongly believed in helping others even if it would do more harm than good, a group of shinobi did not typically believe in helping others for free, and a group of shinobi who were fiercely independent and want to prove that they are worthy shinobi despite their physical disabilities.
Kurumi, Kuroiko, Miyuki, Yumeko, and Hisoka were students at Spectrum Extent National Academy. These five girls were the best students in the entire school. While their status as elite shinobi was well-known inside and outside the school, their developmental disabilities were kept secret and were only known inside of the school in order to protect them from others who would target them and/or mark them for death, from others who would force them to conform, and from others who would exploit them. Unfortunately, a teacher from a rival Aid Shinobi school who was (and still is) a rival to Sensei-oneechan as Kurumi, Kuroiko, Miyuki, Yumeko, and Hisoka call her leaked the information about the five girls having developmental disabilities. Once that happened, the teacher and his five favorite students chased them and their teacher out of Spectrum Extent National Academy while the other students and staff of the rival Aid Shinobi school took some of the Spectrum Extent National Academy staff to a prison-like place as punishment for causing a "conspiracy". Kurumi, Kuroiko, Miyuki, Yumeko, Hisoka, and their teacher barely managed to defeat the rival Aid Shinobi schoolteacher and his five favorite students; after the latter group's defeat, they told the former group to leave the school grounds and never came back. Then Kurumi, Kuroiko, Miyuki, Yumeko, Hisoka, and their teacher fled the school grounds and went to their hideout reserved for emergencies and situations like this; their hideout is where they currently stay at. The five former Spectrum Extent National Academy students are still trained by Sensei-oneechan to fend off the threats that they were once protected from.
