Arakawa Under the Bridge - Takeshi Iizuka (2012)
Hikaru Nakamura's manga "Arakawa Under the Bridge" comes to life in Takeshi Iizuka's live-action comedy. Kou is a young up-and-comer who one day accidentally falls into the Arakawa River. He's saved by the beautiful Nino who asks that in return for saving his life Kou loves her. Kou has no other choice but to honour her wishes, but finds himself in a zany world peopled by star-faced superstars, parrot-headed yakuza and the mythical kappa. "Arakawa Under the Bridge" is set to be released in Japanese theatres in February.
Girl Boss Blues: Queen Bee's Challenge - Norifumi Suzuki (1972)
Chiyoko Kazama plays the Girl Boss of Osaka! Reiko Ike plays the Girl Boss of Kyoto! The two must fight to see who will be in control of the underworld, but they're matched not only in cunning and ferocity, but in beauty as well. Leave it up to a yakuza kingpin to make the final call -- whichever Girl Boss is better in the bedroom will win! "Girl Boss Blues: Queen Bee's Challenge" is another classic Toei Pinky Violence film with a NSFW trailer!
