Last week when the first photos from Yudai Yamaguchi's big screen version of the TV Tokyo/ manga-based TV series “Elite Yankee Saburo” started popping up online I said that the trailer must be imminent, didn't I? Now less than a week later Kevin Ouellette over at Nippon Cinema has got it! Not that you need my two cents worth, but it looks like fans of Yamaguchi's first two off-the-wall high school manga adaptation, "Battlefield Baseball" and "Cromartie High: The Movie" won't be disappointed with this one. Juvenile deliquents, singing high school girls, explosions, faked seppuku and, most importantly, Riki Takeuchi. This one's got it all. Click here to see it all.
"Elite Yankee Saburo" is set for release in Japan on February 28th.
