A story of girls devoting their youth to jet races, with character designs by Hanaharu Naruko. The girls make friends and form bonds through their shared love of jet racing in this ensemble coming-of-age story. Jet races are contested by teams of two, offering accessible strategic action that anyone can enjoy! A range of weapons and jet machines is at your disposal in these exhilarating races through a fictional near-future Tokyo. In a world where jet racing has become a major sport, teams of Jetters and Shooters know how to make a splash. The Jetter pilots the jet machine, while the offensive Shooter attacks opponents with water guns. Enter Rin Namiki, a young lady whose mother was once a legendary Jetter. She dreams of becoming a jet racer herself, leaving her home island and setting out to Asakusa, Tokyo. She encounters the aloof and beautiful Misa Aoi, and the two become partners. Little by little, the two deepen their bond as they race against their rivals.

    Kandagawa Jet Girls is a joke in the same way that Senran Kagura and The Bad Touch song that I quoted at the top is: it relishes in being brazen to the point that it knows it's going to draw some eye rolls. It also knows that many of its fans will enjoy both the brazenness and the eye rolls from the puritans - it's edgy like that. But, really, it's great. It's an excellent blend of "kart" racer and jetski playground, and it is built with a level of precision and eye for detail that I think will surprise and impress many. In other words, it is yet another hit of the kind of breezily entertaining experience that, like so much of Takaki Kenichiro's work, deserves more respect than it's going to get.

    Combining some fun mechanics unique to surfing the waves and a little gunplay to keep your opponents from getting too close, Kandagawa Jet Girls offers a compelling racing experience.

    Kandagawa Jet Girls won’t appeal to the masses, but those who enjoy lighthearted anime (and of course, SENRAN KAGURA) will find a lot to love. The visual novel elements outweigh the flaws found within the racing mechanics just enough to make Kandagawa Jet Girls a splash.

    I can’t help but think that Kandagawa Jet Girls is a rather half-baked attempt at a new media franchise to please Senran Kagura fans. With a more prudish approach to the looks and the game, the possible audience might even be wider than before but that would require a great game as an incentive. Beneath their lewd surface, Senran Kagura games were excellent third-person action games. Unfortunately, Kandagawa Jet Girls is a mediocre racing game at best as it fails in the essentials of the genre. It simply lacks the speed, the excitement, and the challenge to make it to the top.

    Kandagawa Jet Girls is not a good racing game, it’s not even a good fanservice game. Nothing from the developer’s previous works can be found here, and we are left with a dull and uninteresting experience. The quality animations and unlockable content can’t save this game, which makes me wonder why it was localized at all.

    Kandagawa Jet Girls is exactly what you expect and still offers a fun time for those invested in the genre. For everyone else, there’s absolutely nothing to see here.

    It’s a real shame that even though the game looks so bright and colorful the whole package is just incredibly dull. With only a handful of game modes, a bland story, and no local co-op mode to spice things up a bit, it’s not going to take you long to tire of this. Even if you’re a fan of the anime it’s probably better to give this one a miss.

    as for DLC there are 4 pairs of girls from the Senran kagura series as guest characters for $10 each or $30 as a bundle. as much of a fan i am of the series i just don't think the price is justified for the quality and content of the game .
