Chanbara Beauty: The Movie on DVD this August

Media Blaster's Tokyo Shock sub-label can always be counted on to provide us with those off the beaten path DVD gems you simply can't find elsewhere. And come this August, 2009, they'll be releasing Yohei Fukuda‘s Chanbara Beauty: The Movie (aka Onechanbara: Zombie Bikini Squad).

Thanks to NipponCinema.com we have a look at the box art and synopsis for the film:

Based on a hack-n-slash video game series, the story revolves around a scantily-clad girl named Aya (Eri Otoguro), her little sister Saki (Chise Nakamura), and a mysterious gun-toting leather chick named Reiko (Manami Hashimoto) who must protect their dystopic metropolis from a marauding zombie attack. In addition to English subtitles, the disc will include a commentary by co-writer/director Fukuda.

Those who have played the video game know exactly what we're in for. The rest of you won't want to miss the trailer below.

And the movie is all sorts of gorgeous. I already have the import, and the movie is just great. I weeped openly, and will gladly admit it cause this movie was damn near perfect(minus the final battle type thing).

I think I may weep openly. That trailer was all kinds of beautiful.
