Wolf (狼) (Japan, 1982) [DVD] - 2.5/5
"Running is sex!" A wolf guy runs around Tokyo raping women and punching Renji Ishibashi until he finds a wolf girl (the lovely Megumi Saki from Red Violation and Rape Ceremony) to eat bloody steaks and have sex with. A Banmei Takahashi pink film with a strong Sogo Ishii punk vibe, especially in the punk rock score. Original, but ultimately there isn't that much content other than running, raping and disco partying with an animalistic aroma. Originally released in pink triple bill with Saraba aibo and The Harem Valentine Day, the first productions by Director's Company.

There's a bit of confusion about the titles since the "X is Sex" taglines (?) tend to get attached to the the titles. The film title screen simply says "Wolf".

There's running

partying

raping

and eating

Image

in typical pink film fashion, the main character is barely featured in the poster has he happens to be a man

The screencaps are from the DIG triple feature DVD. Saraba aibo and The Harem Valentine Day reviews to follow. The prints are a bit rough and dark, but quite alright considering the nature of the release. No problems with the audio. New trailers (no originals) for this and other releases are the only extra on the disc (not sure about the packaging since I rented the dvd).

So Long My Partner (さらば相棒) (Japan, 1982) [DVD] - 2/5
"Rock is sex". Part 2 in the Director's Company pink triple bill, about a wanna-be rocker and his two friends. Rock, sex and friendship struggles. Ryo Ishibashi stars, Rikiya Yasuoka is a yakuza, and Yuya Fuckin' Uchida (that's how he's credited) a junkie in a 20 second cameo. Also contains tons of other rockers from ARB, ANARCHY and others, playing roles like Rape Guy A, B, C and D, and Drunker A, B and C. And it was written by Kiyoshi Kurosawa, produced by Banmei Takahashi and directed by actor Ryudo Uzaki. And yet the film is rather dull, executed without the kind of energy that would grab you by the balls. It's watchable with some cultural-historical interest stemming from the cast and crew and the era, but the drama doesn’t work and you won't be left with much... except Yuya Fuckin' Uchida.

Harlem Valentine Day (ハーレムバレンタインデイ) (Japan, 1982) [DVD] - 3.5/5
“Blood is sex”. Death Power director Shigeru Izumiya's cosmic cyber punk pink film set in post Sino-Soviet war future (the film opens with low budget battle footage). A crazed, back-from-the-war soldier wanders in the night searching for his lost girlfriend, who has become a prostitute in some kind of Sogo Ishii / Yoshihiro Nishimura / Shinya Tsukamoto style Blade Runner world. He ends up killing most people he encounters. Like Death Powder, I am not sure if this is a good film, but it is odd, visually stunning and fascinating (especially the soundtrack). Guaranteed to leave even the jaded cult film aficionado wondering "what the hell did I just saw", I can't even imagine how the unsuspecting pink film audiences responded when this opened as the final part of the Director's Company triple bill.

That's what I expected you to say :lol:

I'm sure you'll enjoy Harlem Valentine Day, and hopefully you'll get something out of the other two as well.

August 2nd Happinet BD/DVD covers. As far as Happinet covers go, they did a pretty solid job this time! Obviously what they did with poor Circuit of Sorrow is bullshit but I think the Delicate Skillful Fingers BD looks OK and I'm frankly shocked by how much I like their cover for Secret Book: Sleeve and Sleeve.

BD:

Delicate Skillful Fingers (白い指の戯れ) (1972) dir. Toru Murakawa

Koichiro Uno's Wet and Riding (宇能鴻一郎の濡れて騎る) (1982) dir. Junichi Suzuki

DVD:

I think I'd be more satisfied with the Delicate Skillful Fingers art if the original poster and re-issue DVD arts hadn't been so great... I really love them both!

Image

Same with Modern Prostitution... the art is alright, but why not stick more closely to the poster art which is magnificent?

1. Female Delinquent: A Docu-Drama (実録不良少女 姦) (Toshiya Fujita, 1977) (genre: violence / delinquent girl)
Ultra-realistic and ultra-violent bad girl drama. Imagine Kinji Fukasaku directing a Sukeban film with Toshiya Fujita ‘s usual youth film themes and social commentary. Fantastic performances, innovative cinematography and a stunning rock soundtrack.
I don't know exactly when but this great film is now available in an absolutely stunning new HD transfer on amazon!
I'd say a DVD or BD release in the next year or two is very likely.

Great! Let's hope so! Maybe Uchida's death will help get this on disc.

Hello everyone, i have recently developed a crush on Hitomi Kozue and i'm trying to collect as many of her movies as possible. I have all the common ones that you can find online (e.g. Naked Rashomon, woman in hell series etc.) but the more obscure ones i can't find. Can you point out to the best place to purchase dvds or vcds of these rare pinku movies and shipping international? For example i am aware that dmm has many pinku films and many of the ones i'm intereted in, but from what i know there is no way to order from there if you are not in Japan.
So does anyone know of a site/shop where you can order internationally?
Thank you
Alex

Thank you for the recommendation. Although from the list in cdjapan i have already 3 of them.
The other you included (the last link) "the Gokiburi". What is that? It's not mentioned in her imdb or in any other list that i saw. How do you know she stars in that?

Also has anybody been able to order from dmm outside Japan?

Anyone gotten the Delicate Skillful Fingers BD yet? I'd like to know if it's worth the upgrade? A screencap or two would be hugely appreciated.

I haven't bought anything from the August batch yet and to be honest I don't think I will upgrade Delicate Skillful Fingers. I liked the film OK but I must say I'm fine with sticking with the DVD.

Meanwhile, the DVD/BD covers for November have gone live and they're mostly shit, as usual:

November 2nd:

BD:

Mika Madoka: The Woman Who Wets Her Fingers (美加マドカ 指を濡らす女) (1984) dir. Tatsumi Kumashiro

Image

This film was previously only available on VHS/VOD

Nun in Rope Hell (団鬼六 修道女縄地獄) (1984) dir. Katsuhiko Fujii

Image

This film was previously available on DVD.

DVD:

HPBN-150 Wet and Crying: Based on Aiko Nakayama's School of Widows (中山あい子「未亡人学校」より 濡れて泣く) (1977) dir. Katsuhiko Fujii

Image

HPBN-151 Sex-Crime Coast-Piranha School (肉体犯罪海岸 ピラニヤの群れ) (1973) dir. Shogoro Nishimura

Image

HPBN-152 Hirusagari no joji: Susurinaki (昼下りの情事 すすり泣き) (1977) dir. Shinichi Shiratori

Image

HPBN-153 Sex highway: onna no chushajo (SEXハイウェイ 女の駐車場) (1974) dir. Tadahiko Isomi

Image

HPBN-154 Cinderella Ecstasy: Kuroi Hitomi no Yûwaku (シンデレラエクスタシー 黒い瞳の誘惑) (1988) dir. Yoshihiro Kawasaki

Image

HPBN-155 Iro wa sera-fuku (情婦はセーラー服) (1981) dir. Shogoro Nishimura

Image

The only two I find acceptable are Mika Madoka and Sex Highway.

So, I bought Norifumi Suzuki’s book Toei Guerilla Senki (東映ゲリラ戦記) and the 1st chapter is called “The 16 Year Old Enchantress” and it’s about Reiko Ike and the making of Hot Springs Mimizu Geisha (温泉みみず芸者) (1971).

Suzuki says he and producer Kanji Amao were scouting for fresh faces for the film in Kyoto but weren’t finding anyone. Finally they spotted a good looking girl in a magazine that was doing semi-nude photos of young women. But all the models had fake names. Suzuki went back to Tokyo to talk with the publisher and found out the model’s real name: Reiko Ikeda. During production they decided to drop the “da” from Ikeda. Miki Sugimoto was found the same way, she was also doing modelling.

Suzuki describes his first impressions of Ike: “Strong eye shadow and heavy make-up, vibrant red lips, big bust, smoking a cigarette, and underage”.

And there was the problem. Ike was 16. Suzuki says he and Amano had a serious talk with Ike and told her she was never to reveal her real age. They were especially worried that if someone casually asked Ike’s animal zodiac and she replied truthfully, that would give away her real birth year. To which she replied “don’t worry, don’t worry, I’ve had big boobs since 6th year elementary school and I knew how to dress [like an adult] since junior high 3rd year. Women can lie with make-up, can't they?”. And she said all that while holding teen magazine Seventeen in her hand!

It’s not specifically stated, but I think the “official birth date” of May 25, 1953 that you see everywhere was fabricated by Suzuki and Amao. I think May 25, 1954 is her real birth date. The liner notes on Nikkatsu’s Black Panther Bitch M (黒い牝豹M) (1974) DVD state she was born 1954. I also have a Jan 15, 1972 issue of Heibon Punch which states Ike’s age as 17, which would also make it 1954.

I guess we should be glad the films are still legal. And I second the request for a continuation. I'm glad at least a few books like this exist, given the chronic lack of Interviews and commentaries on Japanese catalogue title releases.

Girl and the Wooden Horse Torture (Japan, 1982) [VoD] - 3.5/5
Between 1974 and 1988 Nikkatsu produced nearly 40 adaptations from SM author Oniroku Dan's novels. Most of them were intellectually underwhelming, morally questionable, and tiresome at best. But what would happen if one of the best Japanese screenwriters of the 1980s, Takashi Ishii, adapted a Dan novel and handed it to first time director Fumihiko Kato, who later became known for his atypical Dan films?

Despite the misleading title, this movie bears all the trademarks of Ishii's psychological erotic thrillers and could be an SM-oriented entry in the Angel Guts series. The protagonists are Nami and Muraki: a bullied high school girl and her terminally ill teacher. The opening scene sees Nami saved from violent delinquents by her teacher, who however then collapses in front of her. She leaves him there. The experience haunts her in her dreams, which begin to merge with reality. Years later they meet again after Muraki has been fired and has hit the rock bottom. The film never loses its psychological tension, even though the prolonged SM finale - and a few other bits - may be a bit much for the casual viewers. The overly simplistic Oniroku Dan conventions are nowhere to be found. The film also looks pretty good with the usual urban and occasionally surreal Ishii imagery.

Very nice! I strongly suspect this and EXOTIC MASK IN HELL are due for a BD release next year. Probably the only Oniroku Dan BDs I could get legitimately excited about.

Sex-Crime Coast: School of Piranha (肉体犯罪海岸 ピラニヤの群れ) (Japan, 1973) [VoD] – 1.5/5
Male and female delinquents dubbed as “Piranhas” (no, not the Toei guys) have sex on beach, take captives in a house, then have sex the house. Hitomi Kozue is the main bad girl getting jealous when shag partner Ryuji Nakamura gets intimate with rich girl Masumi Jun. Dull home invasion Roman Porno with a Sun Tribe flavor and a bit of gang content. Director Shogoro Nishimura merely slaps the genre premises together and proceeds to do nothing with them. Last reel action aside, it's embarrassingly unambitious for an early Roman Porno.
I watched this as well by way of the recently released Happinet DVD and liked it marginally better:

Sex-Crime Coast-Piranha School (肉体犯罪海岸 ピラニヤの群れ) (Japan, 1973) [DVD] - 2/5
A gang of no-good youths calling themselves "Piranha" terrorize a seaside community by breaking into rich folks' mansions, stealing and raping everything in sight. Even at a mere 67 minutes this film by Shogoro Nishimura overstayed its welcome. The influence by the likes of Straw Dogs (1971), Clockwork Orange (1971) and Last House on the Left (1972) is obvious but what's on display here doesn't even touch the better rip-offs of those films. There is an attempt to show that the rich folks are no better than the youths by portraying them as a bunch of backstabbing, cheating cretins. Masumi Jun, as the rich patriarch's rebellious daughter, has the sole good line of the film, when she tells her dad that "fathers are also like piranha, they relentlessly devour those around them". If only the rest of the film had been that interesting. Instead we get a climactic rape scene inside the mansion, with all the youths sporting mime make-up and incredibly incongrous oriental snake charmer music blasting away on the soundtrack.

This is the recently added DMM HD stream. As you can see, the colors are all fucked up. Most of their recent Roman Porno HD upgrades and new additions have this same shit look based on the trailers. I always wondered if it was just the previews, but Sex-Crime Coast proves it's the entire film!
The DVD has much more natural colors, so this must be a DMM/FANZA thing.

Cinderella Ecstasy (シンデレラエクスタシー 黒い瞳の誘惑) (Japan, 1988) [DVD] - 4/5
Yoshihiro Kawasaki (Hell in Bottles, Madame de Sade) here gives the classic fairy tale a late 80ies Nikkatsu sex flick update. A woman named Reiko stumbles into a shoe store and is given a pair of red shoes that the owner tells her bring good luck. Just before, he refused to sell those same shoes to another woman named Sheila, who is a "Rock Queen" and hangs out with her buddies Kiss and Bowie in their rock den when she's not fronting her band. The shoes soon work their magic as Reiko meets and falls for a motorcycle racer but Sheila is still after the shoes herself and eventually kidnaps Reiko's man. Overlong sex scenes are the only thing I can hold against this otherwise very entertaining film. Kawasaki directs with a lot of style and the characters are all interesting in their own ways. The ending, which sees Sheila asking the rolling ocean waves who is the prettiest woman in the whole world before exploding in a geyser of blood is also quite amazing.

Legendary actor Koji Yashiro (in his final film role) selling Reiko (Mizuki Kano) the shoes:
