    Thanks Marshall. Glad to see Kurotokagi is still alive but I didn't see anything in the latest batch that I have to get.

      Well, after almost three years of dating I finally showed my girlfriend some pinky violence movies during the Christmas vacation. She's a typical Japanese girl born in the 1990s in the sense that she grew up watching sterile television dramas and never saw boobs in a Japanese movie before.

      I wanted to start off easy, so I chose Delinquent Girl Boss: Worthess to Confess (1971) which puts a lot of emphasis on comedy and melodrama and is quite restrained with sex and violence. She liked it and thought Reiko Oshida was cute!



      The next day I showed her Criminal Woman: Killing Melody (1973), which packs more sex and violence (and a chainsaw scene) but is quite a well made girl gang / revenge movie. She actually liked it even more. She said she's never seen such badass girls in Japanese cinema before. To be honest though, Criminal Woman is quite a bit less sexist than some other films in the genre despite the copious amounts of sex and nudity.



      My plan was to go all the way next with Terrifying Girls' High School: Lynch Law Classroom (1973) but we ended up not having enough time for it. Oh well, maybe next time. And should probably show her some films in the Sukeban series.

      I don't think I'm gonna try some of the sleaziest or more experimental stuff, though. I'm just so happy she doesn't object to my odd films. A Chinese girl I once dated freaked out when she saw (a photo of) my Japanese exploitation film collection Because of that I even hired a friend to hide a few of the more risque titles from my collection before I took my current girlfriend to Finland for the first time Turned out it wasn't necessary

        Ha, I kind of get where you're coming from. Obviously Alison is fine with this stuff but once my parents and grandparents came to visit me when I lived in Portland. It was rather uncomfortable when my mother found my Angel Guts boxed set. She was concerned that if I left it lying around that my grandfather, a retired minister, would freak out. I tried to explain that it wasn't porn, but she wasn't having it, she 'knew better' without having ever seen or heard of any of those movies before, haha.
        Rock! Shock! Pop!

          I'm starting to get a little impatient with the lack of Pinky Violence releases. There are quality DVD releases for TERRIFYING GIRLS' HIGH SCHOOL and DELINQUENT GIRL BOSS films that lack English subtitles. Anyone have any insight into how we can get these translated and subtitles created? Anyone know of someone who would create subtitles for hire and how much it would cost? I believe I read that the subtitles for the SUKEBAN films and many other Toei PV films were fan made. Anyone know who is responsible for them? At this point, I'd be willing to pay for some subtitles and I'm guessing I'm not alone.

            SUPER GUN LADY (Supa gun redei Wani Bunsho) (1979) is a sleazy good time. Filled with serious WTF moments and depravity. As crime film the plot is a bit hard to follow and the resolution seemed weak, but the film stays entertaining from moment to moment. The lead, Emi Yokoyama, is a real stunner. Its a shame her IMDB page doesn't show more work but I did notice she has a bit part in a Sonny Chiba/Etsuko Shihomi film (ROARING FIRE) that I'll be tracking down.

                I finally got round to buying and watching the Girls' Junior High School series... mini-reviews to follow. I would not necessarily label all of these as pinky violence... the first one maybe, but the other two not, but since they often get mentioned in the pinky violence context I will post these here.



                Girls' Junior High School: Dangerous Games (1970)

                Nikkatsu's lesser know bad girl series lacks the excessive sex and violence of its Toei contemporaries, which is only fitting for the series being set in a junior high school. There's no lack of bad behaviour, though, from frequent delinquent antics to shower room fights and strip gambling (none resulting in anything more than girls in underwear). Junko Natsu stars as a new student who enter a school where the girls are framing their poor teachers for rape and hanging out with a silly a yakuza gang running a strip club. There's a lot of good stuff going on during the first half, but the film somewhat runs out of steam towards the end. Also, it should be mentioned the film is just as much a comedy and drama as it is a bad girl flick. Still, it comes with many good moments, plenty of nostalgia, and an excellent, energetic turn by Natsu.

                Enter Junko Natsu

                  Girls' Junior High School: Trouble at Graduation (1970)

                  This second film in the series was released mere five weeks after the original - and oddly enough, produced by a different studio (Academy Pro). The latter may explain why the supporting cast is mostly different, while the former is likely the reason why the film isn't all that good. This time the girls are given homework regarding sex education, which results in a couple of fun but not-all-that-naughty jokes. The film mostly plays out like a mediocre schoolgirls coming-of-age comedy. There's a bit of anarchy at the climax when the girls let the teachers have what they deserve, but this scene too pales in comparison to what would come in Toei's exploitation films in just a few years. The real highlights are the opening scene and a great montage later on, both utilizing the terrific song 'Seishun no uta' by Takuro Yoshida. Director Yukihiro Sawada had a talent for creating that kind of cool scenes, as evidences by several other films he made (e.g. Melody of Rebellion, 1970; Sex Hunter: Wet Target, 1972; Assault, 1976).

                  In case anyone is wondering what the DN logo at beginning of each of these films stands for, that's Dainichi. Dainichi was a distribution company joint venture by Daiei and Nikkatsu. Both companies were facing financial trouble in the early 70s, and probably because the standard back then was to release films as double features, they thought it would be a good idea to join forces. They would be able to distribute double features that contain Nikkatsu and Daiei films rather than trying to produce enough films alone to make a Nikkatsu double feature or Daiei double feature. Obviously the attempt failed: Nikkatsu shifted to Roman Porno in late 1971, and Daiei went bankrupt around the same time.

                      • Girls' Junior High School: Too Young to Play Like This (1970)

                        The last film in the series is a slight improvement over the previous movie. This one, too, is pretty much a schoolgirl drama/comedy from start to finish with little in terms of bad girl action. The most amusing part involves three school boys sneaking into the girls' bathing facilities. There's a highly politically incorrect (by modern standards) joke when a big breasted girl gets up from the bath tub and a subtitle saying "15 years old, and she's got such big..." appears. Another good, and completely ridiculous, sketch features the girls fooling two teachers into believing the other person's got a crush on him/her. Star Junko Natsu also gets her share of the cameraman's love, especially during the last 15 minutes, which feature plenty of idol-like footage of her walking on the streets. Despite these strengths, however, the film isn't all that exciting and far outstays its welcome even at just 82 minutes. But, you gotta love the title!

















                        The DVDs by Nikkatsu look fine other than being interlaced (odd for a 2013 release). My screen captures somehow look a little inferior; I may have screwed up some compression setting, or maybe I'm just imagining things. The DVDs include original trailers as well as cast and crew info. There's also a Junko Natsu interview divided into three parts, apparently conducted via phone because there's no video footage other than clips from the films. The DVD covers are not reversible, btw. Original artwork would have been preferable. There's also a photo booklet which is a box set exclusive but frankly, unless you're a huge fan I don't think you would miss it so much. The box set design, while ok, isn't that special in my opinion either.

                        I'd probably recommend purchasing the first film first, and then deciding whether to get the rest or not, unless you think these films sound exactly like your cup of tea. I already sold my DVD set, but if I had owned the stand alone releases, I probably would have kept the first film.

                        • I'd probably enjoy these. Fingers-crossed someone creates English subtitles. Love the poster for the third.

                          • Ok, so I'm several decades out of sync with this genre, but I'm just wondering if any Pinky violence films ever made it to blu-ray, or are there any hints that this may be so.

                            Having recently bought and enjoyed Lady Snowblood and its sequel, along with Blind woman's curse, was considering going Pinky Violence with Sex and Fury and its sequel, but as far as I'm aware they are only available on dvd.

                              • Yeah annoyingly I missed out on the Uk release, not because I wasn't aware of it, just because I wasn't interested at the time. Now I kind of regret it. Its completely out of print now pretty much everywhere. I guess If I want it will have to get Arrow's US release, and import it.
