The title screen & an early boss.
The Chaste Full-metal Maiden -Leiria- is a freeware doujin Shoot 'em Up game, released by NonLinear for PC in 2009. In this game, players take control of the titular character, a Robot Girl named Leiria created by Joshua, a technician and one of the only surviving humans of a space colony incident. The game features a proximity-based scoring system, similar to CAVE's Ketsui, and near-seamless transitions from one stage to the next. Originally released as a retail game at Comiket, it later became a freeware title.

In August of 2011, the game received a remake with Leiria -Stargazer-, where the gameplay follows the lines of the Espgaluda series, while offering a retelling of the game's original story. Roughly a year later, said game went from a retail doujin game to a freeware game, just like its predecessor.

The original game can be downloaded here (mirror), and its remake can be found here (mirror).

This series features trope examples of:

  • Battleship Raid: In the second stage of Leiria -Stargazer-.
  • Bullet Hell: Especially in the remake. Though, even the original's bosses can easily litter the screen with projectiles, as can be seen in the page image.
  • Bullet Time: In the remake, given that it's an Espgaluda-clone.
  • Defeat Equals Explosion: It's a Shoot 'em Up in space, so all the defeated enemies cleanly explode without a trace (unless said trace is a pick-up item.)
  • Advertisement:
  • Energy Ball: These are frequently spammed by the bosses.
  • Eternal Engine: One is fought in the original game.
  • Mecha-Mooks: The basic opponents faced by Leiria.
  • Moe Anthropomorphism/Robot Girl: Leiria and Lobelia are both anthropomorphic versions of spaceship fighters.
  • Nintendo Hard: The original is already quite difficult, but the remake is much more so.
  • Sailor Fuku: Lobelia's outfit in the remake resembles one, complete with proper tights.
  • Scoring Points: Leiria gets points in the increments of thousands for destroying the enemies.
  • Voice with an Internet Connection: Leiria's dialogue with Joshua.
