The official trailer for TOO YOUNG TO DIE!, a supernatural comedy about an unlucky high school student who dies in a bus crash during a school trip only to be press-ganged into a demonic rock band in Hell, is now available online. The trailer details the plight of Daisuke (played by Ryunosuke Kamiki), who wants to confess his crush to his would-be girlfriend Hiromi (Aoi Morikawa), only to die unexpectedly and find himself in Hell. There Daisuke encounters the flamboyant Killer K (Tomoya Nagase), the lead guitar and vocalist of the infernal rock band known as Hells, and together they embark on a hard-rocking tour of the Afterlife in an attempt to get Daisuke back to the Land of the Living and the girl he loves.
17-year-old Daisuke (Ryunosuke Kamiki) has a crush on classmate Hiromi (Aoi Morikawa) and is thrilled to sit next to her on the bus during a school outing, but the bus crashes and Daisuke finds himself in Hell, although the rest of his class seems to have landed in Heaven. The rock'n'roll demon Killer K takes Daisuke under his wing and tries to help him find a way to get out of Hell and back to Hiromi, but the paths to doing so are never easy . This is an insane, hilarious comedy from Japan that has to be seen to be believed. The version of Hell is just completely wacky, and Daisuke's journeys to the world and back to Hell again are inventive and very funny. And the whole story is brought together with the use of various forms of heavy metal music, which of course just has to be the only music fit for Hell! If you get a chance to see this film, do so, you will be happy you did!
