Goofs

Saki chases a bomb-carrying classmate into a shopping mall. It's bright sunshine outside when they enter the mall, but on several occasions inside, skylights are visible showing that it is night outside. As the DVD featurette reveals, the mall interior sequences were filmed late at night. See more »

2 thirds soap opera potboiler and 1 third live action anime
6 July 2008 | by TerryMcCSee all my reviews

This remarkably silly film is taken dead seriously by the performers in it which helps in getting though a film that seems to be two thirds soap opera potboiler, and one third live action anime.

Anyway, it seems the authorities know they have only 3 days to stop a mass suicide at a high school by bomb and so of course do this not by closing the place down but instead by placing an untrained street urchin, with rad moves of course, undercover in the school in (she only agrees to do this so they'll let her mother out of lockup in American.) Armed only with a cell phone and a yo-yo, no really a yo-yo, and the occasional aid of the Colombo of Japan, she gets to the bottom of the whole affair.

However don't expect too much yo-yo fu, in fact we have to wait until the last 20 minutes before there's any real yo-ing battles.

Amusing if you don't expect too much from it
