The lovely Eri Otoguro stars as Aya, a sword swinging babe who frequently discards her poncho to do battle in just her bikini; fighting at her side are her overweight male friend (Katsuji Tomohiro Waki) and buxom, leather-clad, shotgun-toting beauty Reiko (Manami Hashimoto). Between them, this trio of fearless zombie killers hack, slash and shoot a swathe through the undead in an attempt to find Aya's sexy little sister Saki (Chise Nakamura) and battle evil scientist Dr. Sugita (Tarô Suwa), the man who has been reanimating the dead.
It's amazing just how forgiving I can be when a film features several hot Japanese women in revealing attire kicking ass, as is the case with live-action manga Chanbara Beauty. The fact that the film suffers from a weak, muddled plot and unconvincing special effects certainly didn't stop me from having a pretty good time with this very silly zombie flick in which the women are as deadly as they are tasty. Otoguru looks absolutely amazing in her teeny bikini, Hashimoto's leather get-up shows off her great figure and cleavage, and Nakamura is hot in her schoolgirl outfit; none of their fighting looks all that convincing, but it doesn't really matter when there is so much eye-candy to enjoy.
