For anyone tired of visual novels that feature the same stereotypical super emo high school characters, settings and melodrama, MangaGamer's upcoming June release of Overdrive's Dengeki Stryker! should be a bishoujo fans delight. Featuring a storyline that will appeal to fans of Joss Whedon's the Avengers, a young protagonist who wishes to become a superhero, Dengeki Stryker! is a visual novel that should be on everyone's radar.
Full press release after the jump.

Nearly everyone shares certain memories. Memories of a time when we admired superheroes, those who fight for justice and defend the weak from evil. Memories of a time when we were weak, and couldn't protect the things important to us. Memories of a time when we longed to be the heroes we admired. Memories of promises we couldn't keep. Precious memories, every one of them. Memories which make us who we are today. The price young Yuuki Yamato must pay when he makes his wish to become the superhero he always longed to be: Dengeki Stryker!
What challenging perils await our bionic hero, Dengeki Stryker?! How far will the evil Balbora Empire go in their quest to conquer the peaceful nation of Japan?! Who will aid the mighty Dengeki Stryker in his struggles?! New Stryker Units?! Giant Robots?! Texan Ninjas?! You won't want to miss a moment in this exciting tale of charged action-packed battles, with animation directed by Watanabe "Nabeshin" Shinichi! Vocal Tracks byAiRi, Hashimoto Miyuki, and JAM Project's Maaaki Endoh! And even voice acting from Evangelion's Ogata Megumi!
For every one of us who has ever admired a superhero, let this tale shine a light on those memories you may have lost and remind you how precious they truly are.

Yuuki Yamato has modeled his young life after the superheroes he loves. When his best friend Haruna is teased by bullies, he always tries to defend her -- but his life is not a comic book, and things never work out as planned.
One day, after yet another failure, Haruna tells Yamato that she is moving away. She asks him to come and see her off, but Yamato -- his pride still wounded -- cannot find the courage to face her. When Yamato is feeling his lowest, an old man appears before him. He is known as the Memory Collector, and he will grant one wish in exchange for a memory. Yamato makes his wish: to become Dengeki Stryker, his favorite comic book hero.
Years later, an army of cyborgs from the Balbora Empire appear in the city where Haruna now lives. With the police and the army powerless against the Empire's mechanical might, it falls to a single hero to stop them -- a hero who looks remarkably like Dengeki Stryker!
