They should have named this movie "Young Girl Learns How To Swim" instead of "Kekko Kamen Returns". Sure, that alternate title would have drawn (even) less viewers, but at least it would have been more honest and fewer people would have felt so disappointed after seeing the film. Because the title character appears no more than 3 (yes, 3) times throughout. I actually liked the new actress playing Kekko Kamen: she might be a little slower with the nunchucks than the previous one, but she has a more athletic build. However, most of the time we're just watching cute Japanese girls in swimsuits (OK, it doesn't sound bad so far!), talking, seeing ghosts, training to enter a swimming competition, and occasionally being tortured by their pervert teachers. I think this is all supposed to be funny and heartwarming, but it's creepy and boring instead. I'm still not sure if the original material cannot be transferred well to film, or if it just fell into the wrong hands. 0.5 out of 4 stars.
