Above is a sales poster for Yoshikatsu Kimura's Karate Girl (KG).

As I previously mentioned on The Ancient Dogoo Girls (Kodai shjo-tai Dogn V) thread, Karate Girl stars Rina Takeda. According to allcinema (Stingray Co. Ltd. / K.K. Sutingurei), it co-stars 13-year-old Hina Tobimatsu (not "Haruna Tobimatsu"), Tatsuya Naka, Noriko Iriyama, Kazutoshi Yokoyama, Richard Heselton, Saori Takizawa (PDF file), and Keisuke Horibe. Fuyuhiko Nishi wrote the screenplay for, produced, and was the action director for it.

Here's a description of Karate Girl from Nippon Cinema: "Rina Takeda and Haruna [sic] Tobimatsu co-star as sisters Ayaka and Natsuki Kurenai, the youngest descendants of a legendary Okinawan karate master named Shoujirou Kurenai. As children, they live a happy life with their father (Tatsuya Naka) who encourages them both to practice karate. However, one day a mysterious group breaks into their dojo - killing their father, kidnapping Natsuki, and stealing the black belt which has been passed down in their family for over 200 years. Several years later, Ayaka is living the humble life of an ordinary high school student in Yokohama. Natsuki, on the other hand, has been trained as a killing machine by the mysterious group that kidnapped her all those years ago. Soon, Natsuki and the group begin to take aim at Ayaka. Out of love for her sister and with the teachings of her father still in her heart, Ayaka decides to do whatever it takes to get Natsuki and their family's black belt back from the clutches of the mysterious group."

CJ Entertainment Japan K.K. (CJEJ) and T-Joy Co. Ltd. (K.K. Ti Joi) are scheduled to release Karate Girl theatrically in Japan on February 5th of next year.

The official website for Seiji Chiba's Kunoichi is now functional.

The screenplay for Kunoichi was written by Chiba (who also edited the movie). The movie stars (listed order corresponds to order on cast/staff page of official website) Rina Takeda, Mitsuki Koga, Masanori Mimoto, Yichi Sat, Mayu Onomura, Shiho Fujisawa, Kotono, and Kentar Shimazu (Shimadu Kentar). Kensuke Sonomura (second listing) was the movie's action director.

Nippan (Nippon Shuppan Hanbai Inc. / Nippon Shuppan Hanbai K.K.) is scheduled to release Kunoichi at the Theater N Shibuya in Tokyo on March 19th.

Note that Kunoichi has a running time of only 65 minutes.

Happy birthday to Kotono, who turned 26 years old today (February 24th)! She previously was in such movies as Ysuke Narita's Flower & Snake 3 (Hana to hebi 3), Yoshihiro Nishimura, Tak Sakaguchi (Sakaguchi Taku), and Noboru Iguchi's Mutant Girls Squad (Sent shjo: chi no tekkamen densetsu), Shichir Masumoto's roman porno Any and Every Which Way (Ushiro kara mae kara), and Naoyuki Tomomatsu's pink horror At the Mercy of the Darkness: Ayano's Bizarre Delusions (Yami no manimani: hitozuma Ayano no futei na ms). She appeared in her birthday suit in several of those movies...

The English-language title of Kunoichi is "The Kunoichi: Ninja Girl". Distribution rights for the movie are now being offered for sale by CREi Inc. (K.K. Kurei).

Here's a synopsis for The Kunoichi: Ninja Girl from CREi: "Behind the battle of the Iga versus Koga Ninjas, the footsteps of Flesh Trading Ninja's Conspiracy and Betrayal approaches... The flesh trading ninjas kidnap women from enemy ninja group's villages, and use the women as tools of temporary comfort for themselves. The Iga Ninja member Shimotsuki (Mitsuki Koga) and Hyotsuki (Masanori Mimoto) ordered to kidnap the women, are in the process of transporting Kisaragi (Rina Takeda) and three other women from the Kouga village. Suddenly an unknown man (Yuichi Sato) appears, cuts the tied ropes of the women, and sets them free. Shimotsuki and Hyotsuki chase the women running amuck as if they were playing a game. As one by one the women fall prey to the hands of these men, Kisaragi will discover the truth and the real enemy that lies behind this evil practice."

A teaser trailer for Another has been added to YouTube.

The screenplay for Another was written by Sachiko Tanaka and Furusawa, based on the aforementioned serialized novel by Ayatsuji. The movie stars (listed order corresponds to order on official website) Kento Yamazaki, Ai Hashimoto, Yoshihiko Hakamada, and Ai Kat.

Here's a synopsis for Another from Kadokawa Pictures (Kadokawa Shoten Co. Ltd. / K.K. Kadokawa Shoten): "One after another students die in horrific ways. No one can escape from this chain of accidental deaths. Koichi Sakakibara moves to his maternal grandparent's house in a small town, because of family circumstances, and encounters a pretty young girl with a mysterious eyepatch. He meets her in the junior high school class that he transfers into and talks to her, but finds that for some reason the other students in the class and even the homeroom teacher behave as if 'she absolutely does not exist.' In the midst of this, a classmate dies in a mysterious accident, and what's more other classmates and their families die in horrific circumstances... What curse is leading to this succession of deaths? And what shocking ritual has become part of his junior high school?!"

Toho Co. Ltd. (Th K.K.) is scheduled to release Another theatrically in Japan on August 4th.

Those who are interested in Another may also wish to watch the theatrical trailer for Ksuke Hishinuma's Life Is Dead (Raifu izu deddo).
