Bomber Girl (ボンバーガール Bonbā Gāru?) is a Japanese manga series written and illustrated by Makoto Niwano.

The series is about Emi Rashomon (羅生門エミー Rashomon Emii?), a bounty hunter who uses her sex appeal to defeat enemies. Guy Kurosaki (黒崎 ガイ Kurosaki Gai?) is a police officer who initially opposes Emi's methods.

In Japan it was published in Weekly Shōnen Jump by Shueisha's Jump Comics division. The series was published by Gutsoon Entertainment in the United States.[1]

Reception[edit]

The series received very negative reviews from Anime News Network. John Jakala said that the first instalment of the series was okay, but the second was even more amateur. He referred to a car panel as it looked like something an elementary school child would draw in the margins of his math notebook.[2] He also noted that he does not want to pay for work of such unprofessional quality. He cast his vote against Bomber Girl on an online survey.[2] John Jakala continuously made fun of the series in the later reviews.

There's a questionnaire on the last page that directs readers to the Raijin Comics website to register their opinions, but so far the survey is still directed at the preview zero issue. I'll keep checking back to cast my vote against BOMBER GIRL.

—John Jakala, [2]
