Cover Description: It is the year 3113. Thirty centuries have
passed since the Earth was consumed by toxic pollutants, forcing mankind
to flee into the galaxy in search of life-sustaining habitats. Enter
Advancers - brave explorers who risk their life exploring new uncharted
worlds for humans to live on. To unite these new worlds, a new interplanetary
government was formed, with all new planets and space colonies falling
under it's jurisdiction: The Allied Earth Government, the Domestic Union
of Arms (DUA).
When the DUA sends out Advancers to explore a mysterious planet called
Omega 13, one by one, Advancers pay the price with their lives-never
to return from their mission. Mugal, a top DUA officer proposes the
job to an unlikely candidate: Tina Owens, a renegade Advancer serving
a 2,000 year sentence for blowing up an entire planet.
The mission is simple: locate habitable land on Omega 13, If Tina doesn't
accept the job, she'll will rot in prison. If Tina accepts, her sentence
will be slightly reduced, with the risk of death. While there's no doubt
the trip to Omega 13 is filled with peril, nothing can compare to what
awaits the crew once they arrive on the deadly planet. Will they make
it out alive? In the tradition of Alien and Fist of the Northstar, be
sure not to miss Advencer: Tina!

I think I know where American Movies get their plots...
Advancer Tina reminds me of an American movie I saw a while
back. I don't remember the title but it had Val Kilmer in
it, and he was heading toward planet Mars. I wouldn't be surprised
if Hollywood did try to rip off Advancer Tina because not
only does AT provide an eventful and gripping thriller, it
was also able to give ample characterization to its key players.
While many of its tentacle scenes had me looking at anywhere
but the screen, the action-packed battle sequences had me
glued to the tube. The artwork is pretty decent and the animation
is fluid for its time.
Beyond the action scenes lie a decent plot. In fact, I could
say that Adventure Tina is one of those rare hentai that actually
has a story. You have Tina, a sort-of space mercenary with
a kick-ass personality, who goes into battle in and struggles
against a bunch of tentacles. In her quest, she meets people
whose lives are are defined by simple tragedies and what have
you. Tina is sure one heck of a heroinenot the typical
airhead you mostly see in h-anime. She also knows how to choose
the right companions. I especially liked Akira. He was like
Fatal Fury's Terry and Street
Fighter's Ryu rolled into one. The only downside to this
is that there were a lot of interesting angles that were left
There were two major questions that had left me hanging,
though: (1) What really happened to the notorious bandit that
Akira was looking for; and (2) when will Tina be shown doing
it with an actual human being? I only hope to see more of
the Advancers. Maybe then I'll even get to see my favorite
dude finally get lucky.
