Baseball prodigy Jubeh Yakyu (Tak Sakaguchi) is the most feared and dangerous juvenile delinquent in all of Japan. After accidentally causing the death of his father with a super-powered, deadly fireball pitch, Jubeh swore off baseball and became a criminal and now, at 17, has been sent to the Pterodactyl Juvenile Reformatory for hardened criminals. Headmistress Ishihara, the granddaughter of a World War II Nazi collaborator, runs the institution with an iron fist and the enthusiastic help of her sadistic assistant, Ilsa. After arriving at the hellhole, Jubeh soon learns from governor Mifune that his long-lost, younger brother Musashi had also done time there after a murder spree, but had since died mysteriously. Written by
Guy with a blazing fastball vs. Elsa's ugly stepsister.
A young man, Jubeh Yakyu, swears off baseball after his literally blazing fastball offs his old man. Later, as a young adult with the fashion sense of a biker and a Sergio Leone western, he is arrested for a 2 week spree of 54 crimes ("inluding dropping televisions on people"). With a promise of freedom, the governor sends him to "Pteradactyl Hall", a juvenile detention center run by a headmistress called Ishihara who has a thing for the Nazi period in her dress and manner. She is also the chairperson for a baseball tournament called "Juvie League". The governor suspects she's up to something and he wants Jubeh to find out what.
This movie is an over-the-top, cartoonish, scattershot of the absurd, ridiculous, and the stupid. This means that if one of them doesn't make you grin or laugh outright there's another not far behind that will probably do the job. Jubeh arrives at Pterdactyl Hall and later finds out that is brother, Mushashi, was there earlier and died. Ishihara, with some kind of contraption strapped to her to generate tears, gives him some sob story and tells him that his brother would want him to play baseball. Jubeh decides that he will play again. His team, the Pterdactyl Gauntlets, will play St. Black Dahlia High, an all girl team (Woof!). But it is not the game he and his teammates imagined. This movie is obviously silly, but "good" silly. Enjoy! Love, Boloxxxi.
