Armed and Dangerous

And more Japanese crazy goodness.

First is new Japanese TV series called The Ancient Dogoo Girl, and it was created by Noboru Iguchi, that responsible for The Machine Girl and this piece of bizarreness, that I mentioned before on this blog. But it seems that he has reached new limits of absurd storytelling and costume fetish. Again. Watch this ridiculously hilarious trailer and tell me if his is not the dumbest thing you've ever seen.

The series stars pop idol Erika Yazawa and is about ancient girl, who’s revived after 10,000 years to fight evil in modern-day society, while capturing the heart of a misfit teenager named Makoto.
This is her, and the reasons for her popularity are quite obvious, no? She is over 18 on the pics, so no complaints.

More trailers for other crazy projects - below.

Second is live action adaptation of the long running manga and one time anime Iketeru Futari, translated as The Hot Couple, and it's about sex-obsessed high school 16-year old boy who loves to fantasize about young beautiful women. 'Nough said.


Young girl in high school uniform running around with sword, decapitating heads, splashing blood. Oh yeah, it's Japanese. This is another live action adaptation of manga and anime - The Abashiri Family. The production seems extremely cheap, but what the hell. Set in the near future in Japan, the movie tells a story of a clash between gangster families, with some kind of experiments in mind control or something ridiculous like that.


And the last one is a little different than all the above, called Assault Girls, and it's a product of imagination by acclaimed Mamoru Oshii. It is about the aftermath of global thermonuclear war, when the Earth’s surface has been turned into a desert battlefield. Three beautiful female hunters travel across the burnt landscape armed with powerful assault rifles to fight a group of deadly sand-dwelling monsters.
This one looks pretty amazing and stylish, despite the low-tech effects.

Everything was found via Nippon Cinema.
