A kid's movie compared to the manga, but still manages to deliver some goods.
Mai Chan's Daily Life is possibly the most infamous Ero-Guro (gore porn) manga ever made and I was excited and little skeptical about this live-action adaptation. Seeing as some of the scenarios depicted in the manga are not only extremely over-the-top and ridiculous (the tiger scene) but some would be illegal to recreate with real-life actors (the depraved acts involving young children). Indeed, this was Teletubbies compared to the manga, but it does still manage to squeeze in a palatable amount of Ero-Guro goodness in its slim running time.
Finger-chopping, high heels inserted into open wounds and eroticised disembowelment are just a few of the niceties that lie within. Of coarse, there is also no shortage of titillation and maid fetishism for those who are into that.
Clocking in at barely an hour, the movie doesn't outstay its welcome, and it doesn't pretend to be anything its not. I would love to see what the director could do with a bigger budget. Sequel maybe?
