Without spoiling anything for someone who hasn't seen this film yet, the story is basically about a growing terrorist plot which the police are unable to solve giving them no choice but to turn to the troubled daughter of the original Sukeban Deka giving her the choice of either cooperating with the government and investigating as an undercover agent or have her mother remain in custody in America facing espionage charges with the government doing nothing to negotiate for her release. The only clue they have to go on is an underground website named "Enola Gay" which has begun a countdown to an unknown horror. With ass kicking martial arts skills and a deadly yo yo, Ayaya investigates Seisen Academy.
Okay I know what you're probably thinking…deadly yo yo?! But this really does work! I was kind of wondering if this film would be too over the top but it really isn't at all and in fact this film is driven with a serious edge and heart with a good dash of humor too. I won't give anything away it's too funny! But it's also filmed in kind of a dark way at times and I give the director credit for doing that. The action sequences are filmed very well with flair and style along with good special effects while maybe a couple of explosions could have been done a bit better, really it isn't anything to complain about after you've watched this entire film. I'm not talking awards or anything as this film is what it is, an action film and if you're looking for great entertainment then I recommend this movie.
H!P fans or more specifically Ayaya, Charmy, & Biyuuden fans are in for a real treat with this action film. Who wouldn't want to see Ayaya kicking some serious butt while dressed in seifuku or cool looking armor gear? The director didn't hold back either in capturing a realness with the graphic violence as well as the language used. You've never heard Ayaya swear like this ever! She curses and dishes out the pain! Rikachan is most impressive too playing Ayaya's main rival! One of the cutest villains ever in cinema history. 🙂 Rikachan looks smoldering and plays the role to perfection! And with her extremely cute "anime" voice she's also a delight for the ears. That combination is pure magic and she will have some wishing that it was them who were getting their butts kicked by Rikachan. lol. Absolutely smoldering I kid you not! Ayaya not to be outdone is equally as great in her starring role where her powerful demeanor heats up the screen. Even a bloody Ayaya is ultra cute! With good no nonsense pacing this film will hold your interest and when Ayaya and Charmy go head to head all of that action and cuteness flood the screen. Heheh check out Charmy giving Ayaya a couple of good kicks in a few pics below.
As an added bonus this film's theme song is GAM's single "Thanks!" and the special features include a making of segment which is also subtitled in English. I hope you enjoy this film as much as I did!
