Storyline

When two Girl Bosses fight each other over territory, their enmity is difficult to solve - they are equals in looks, strength, determination, and power of their respective girl gangs. So, the way is open to a mischievous Yakuza Boss who invites them for a peaceful way to decide their feud: a sexual challenge for him to decide who is the better Girl Boss. Trapped, both are subject to the man's lust and sadistic assaults. They escape by joining forces against the yakuza gang, though it costs one of the young women her life - when she was friends already with her former enemy. Written by Artemis-9

A Battle Between Two All-Female Gangs
12 February 2017 | by Uriah43See all my reviews

This movie involves two all-female gangs by the names of "the Pearl Gang" and a relatively new group to Kyoto called "the Black Lily Gang". The Pearl Gang is led by a woman named "Maki" (Reiko Ike) while the Black Lily gang is led by woman named "Yuri" (Chiyoko Kazama) and each are bitter enemies of the other. As it so happens, both of them are operating on the turf of a local Yakuza gang known as "the Kuroji Group" which limits their ability to be more than a minor nuisance to certain people here and there. In any case, when the Kuroji Group comes up with a plan involving these young ladies it creates a serious problem for all concerned. Now rather than reveal any more I will just say that this was a somewhat interesting crime-drama with several humorous scenes thrown in occasionally for good measure. On the minus side, it lacked cohesion from one scene to another and some of the fight scenes could have used some improvement as well. That being the case, I have rated this movie accordingly. Slightly below average.
