Schlock at its best

This movie is crazy when you think about it. There's a non linear plot that still manages to arc, there are tonal changes throughout that actually are pretty smooth for the most part, and not to mention some pretty crazy characters. The plot for sure is unusual, it's mostly made up of shorter plots that wind up quickly wrapping themselves up. The tone here is really what makes this movie crazy. Most of it does have a comic tone, but then there's two soft sex scenes that this movie relishes in. The only bigger break from those scenes are the fact that this movie gets sad near the end. I won't say what or why, but trust me it happens. But, what's really crazy is with the exception of the sex scenes that go on for way too long, the tone of the movie actually ties together surprisingly well. While I don't think I could summarize the characters, all I can say is just about every supporting character is crazy in some way and does add to the comedy of the movie. This is a hard movie to summarize, but it's a funny and entertaining little Japanese direct to video movie which I'm sure is better here in the United States than it is in Japan. And I do have to mention one last thing, and that's the IMDb page for this movie- and that's the fact that most of the cast credits are for the English dub included on the DVD (which I didn't watch). Still the actual Japanese cast should have credit here everyone here is quite memorable in their own unique way. So if you see this review, check this movie out.
