Goofs

In the opening scenes, Michiyo, the girl who is tortured by the Disciplinarians, escapes from them and hangs from the edge of the roof of the school building before falling to her death. From an aerial shot, we see a brief glimpse of the ground below her: rough gravel. In the next scene, after she has fallen, we see people cleaning up the blood from where she fell and died. But the cleanup takes place on paved driveway in the front of the school entrance, not at all matching the rough gravel we saw in the previous scene. Also, she fell straight down from the edge of the building, but the cleanup of her blood is taking place out in the driveway in front of the entrance - a good distance from the edge of the building.

Girls looks rather old, but movie is good
23 October 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

In the '70s, Toei studio has switched completely from their samurai movies into Yakuza, and Sukeban type movies. They might have done some disservice to the Japanse culture for glorifying violence during that period. Reiko Ike and Aya Sugimoto were their stars at that time.

A group of girls belonging to Kibou Gakuen high school decides to battle the corrupt management of the school they're in that killed Michio Akiyama the friend of one of the girls. In between the girls engage themselves in lesbian escapades.

Girls that look awfully old to be a student appear as high school students in these movies.

Toei used to make samurai movies in glorious color. Their great photographic technique is evident in these movies as well.

Lot of interesting scenes in this movie, as are other movies made by Toei at the time.

The movie is tame in violence and sexual contents compared to the movies of today (frontal nude was illegal in Japan at the time), but this was the cutting edge in the '70s Japan.

BTW, the girl that appears on the box of Pinky Violence Collection is Reiko Ooshida, and does not appear in this movie.

A good movie from the '70s Japan.
