Last 1st of August the movie Rurouni Kenshin: Kyoto Inferno (Rurouni Kenshin: Kyoto Taika-hen) opened in movie theaters across Japan. It quickly became the highest grossing live-action Japanese movie release of the year.
It was the second of the trilogy of Rurouni Kenshin live-action movies. The action is set in Kyoto during the 19th century where an ex-member of the Shinsengumi plans a covert operation. Battosai finds out about what is going to happen in Kyoto and once again has to fight them using his double bladed sword.
Just one month later, on September 13th, Rurouni Kenshin: The Legend Ends (Rurouni Kenshin: Densetsu no saigo-hen, the third movie of the trilogy was released. The movie again has been a huge success and right now it still is the highest grossing movie of the week.
If you go to the gardens at Tokyo Midtown before the end of August you will have the chance to meet Godzilla. Well, to be honest, you will only have the chance to see half Godzilla with an exact height of 6.6 meters (22 feet). The statue has been built to commemorate the 60th anniversary of Godzilla and also to promote the latest Godzilla movie, which is being released in Japan next week. Yes! Many movies arrive quite late to Japan!
My brother sends me the trailer of the movie Hentai Kamen.
The Hentai Kamen movie is fairly new (2013) but the manga is a classic. It was published in Shonen Jump magazine in the beginning of the 90s and it defined the hentai (pervert) dressing style. The main character is a young man who practices martial arts (Kenpo) and that can turn into a superhero by putting some panties on his face.
The movie is quite bizarre but its plot, based on the manga, is quite good.
I recommend Hentai Kamen, a good “WTF movie” to go along with Robogeisha.
