Prepare for an onslaught of the senses: Mamoru Oshii’s adaptation of robot story TETSUJIN 28 – released simply as 28 1/2 – is bound to become another extravaganza and rare live action movie from the anime master. Aesthetically, 28 1/2 looks like a direct successor to ASSAULT GIRLS, blended over with a touch of 20TH CENTURY BOYS.

While Oshii directs, the cast includes Erika Okuda, Momoko Tanabe, Masahiro Sudo, Kenji Mizuhashi, Shuuji Kashiwabara, Kaho Minami, Narushi Ikeda and Diamond Yukai. Check out the website for more details.

EVIL NINJA is another take on the ninja movie genre, rather B but still most likely enjoyable for fans. It’s a quasi-sequel to Seiji Chiba’s IGA NO RAN once again starring Masashi Goda (MITO KOMON TBS historical drama series) and telling the story of the Iga ninja fighting against the Koga ninjas with early biological weaponry in the form of deadly diseases. You can catch the movie now in selected cinemas across Japan. Directed by Seiji Chiba, starring Masashi Goda, Shuuji Kashiwabara, Mitsuki Koga, Daisuke Nagakura, Mei Toyokawa, Jerry Fujio, Kentaro Shimazu and Masanori Mimoto.
