Must be seen to be believed!
5 October 2010 | by sillyman-2See all my reviews

A very funny film about a new University student, Takayuki Yamada, who joins a club (even though he is not sure what the club is about) hoping to meet girls. It turns out to be a club that involves directing teams of Oni spirits (like little fat Pikachus) to battle other University teams in a sporting contest.

Cast against type as a geeky Physics student with uncool hair and oversize glasses is Chiaki Kuriyama. She reveals a real flair for comedy playing the desperate girl who fancies the hero who fancies another girl in the team who fancies the team jock.

The CGI is excellent. The film flags a bit in the middle but is very different to anything I have seen before and well worth getting. I bought mine from Amazon.
