It was only last week that we got news that Mamoru Oshii was going to finally get to make the film he'd ruminated so long over - a full length feature based on the "Assault Girls 2" segment that he contributed to last year's omnibus film "Kill = Kill". Starring Meisa Kuroki, Hinako Saeki and of course Rinko Kikuchi "Assault Girls", as this upcoming film has been dubbed, promises action, action and more action, and now we can get a peek at exactly what all this action will look like.
The folks at Affenheimertheater and Raku of Asian Media Wiki were kind enough to email me a link to a full gallery of stills from "Assault Girls" and they look pretty darn amazing. If any of you have seen Oshii's 2001 film "Avalon" you'll know that he gives his live-action work a lovely soft focus effect and is camera just loves beautiful women, and these assault girls fit that bill perfectly.
