->''A little war in the brand-new Earth''
-->-- The opening of ''SUGURI''

'''''SUGURI''''' is a horizontal ShootEmUp for Windows PC developed by the doujin circle of Orange_Juice. It stars the title character, Suguri, a girl armed to the teeth with a variety of powerful weapons working to protect her home world from similarly adorable girls who are under orders to wipe out all life on the planet and take it as their own. The game features an auto-targeting system which allows the player to fire in directions other than the usual "straight ahead", a dashing system which can be used to charge up a Hyper Gauge to unleash a [[LimitBreak Hyper Attack]], a variety of unlockable weapons, and multiple different modes of gameplay.

A sequel, ''Acceleration of SUGURI'', and its {{expansion pack}}, ''Acceleration of SUGURI X-Edition'', were later released in Japan for PC. Unlike its predecessor, ''Acceleration of SUGURI'' is a one-on-one hybrid of a BulletHell shooter and a FightingGame, with both single-player modes with local and online multi-player modes. It features the same cast as the original game, and presents the player with short "WhereAreTheyNow" cutscenes for completing the Arcade Mode for certain characters of the game with a single credit. The ''X-Edition'' expansion pack adds two additional story modes and multiple new characters.

The entire series has been localized to the United States by doujin game publisher Rockin' Android for PC with ''SUGURI - Perfect Edition'' compilation and individually through digital distribution via [=GamersGate=] and [=Direct2Drive=] in 2009. ''Acceleration of SUGURI X-Edition'' was later released for the PlayStation3 by Rockin' Android on February 15th, 2011 as a downloadable game on {{PlayStation Network}}, which features [[ArtShift new character artwork]] by Keiko Sakurai, [[CosmeticAward PlayStation Network Trophies]], and the ability to share replays on Website/YouTube, although it loses its online play unfortunately and certain [[UnlockableContent character unlocking conditions]] where changed for the [=PlayStation=] 3 version due to being a combination of both the base game and the expansion pack.

Rockin' Android later released an [[UpdatedRerelease HD version]] of ''Acceleration of SUGURI X-Edition'' for PC on {{DESURA}} on June 25th, 2012 with the option of using the original or updated [=PlayStation=] Network graphics, higher native resolution, and the online multiplayer absent from [=PlayStation=] Network version. A digitally released compilation of the series along with their original soundtracks, aptly-named ''SUGURI Collection'', was released via [[http://www.ricedigital.co.uk/store/suguri-collection Rice Digital]] and has been [[http://www.steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=105716878 greenlit]] for {{Steam}}.
