Tantric Stripfighter Trina - with a story by Ken Faggio and art by Fernando Furukawa - is definitely not for everyone. However, if you like lots of action, a little sci-fi, and a plethora of big boobs, this is definitely the manga for you.

Trina Devi, a Tantrika - or warrior skilled in the art of stripfighting - is the last left of her kind after her home planet was destroyed by mercenaries. Now Trina is on a quest to find the men who killed her family. The Trantrika way opposes killing, but that does not stop Trina from roughing up the bad guys with the help of her new apprentice, Chrome Abbey. The further she gets on her quest, the deeper the government conspiracy against the Tantrika seems to go and the closer Trina comes to losing herself.

Faggio's tale of intergalactic politics is more fun than most sci-fi manga, and Furukawa's artwork has some depth to it not often seen in manga, either Eastern or Western, where the main point of the story is fanservice. These two points really carry Tantric Stripfighter Trina, making it bearable for those readers who are not interested in the partial stripping of the unrealistically busty Trina.
