Naomi Oka, far right. I think her first pinky violence appearance was GIRL BOSS GUERILLA, where she has a shaved head. In fact, I've never seen her without a shaved head, although these films were made so quickly that I could hardly expect her hair to have grown out. I gather she made quite a few films at Nikkatsu at the same time, an IMDb lists about three dozen films, right up through a small role in A TAXING WOMAN. I would be very curious to know more about her, particularly the origin of her severe hairstyle.
Edit: Just re-watched part of TGHS: WOMEN'S VIOLENT CLASSROOM and she has a pretty bad wound on her arm. Another legend of pinky violence waiting to be told.

Is this the very first Reiko/Miki fight? I seem to recall seeing a poster for this film where their battle is played up. In any case, for me this is the definitive such brawl. Not sure why, as it does not take place in calf-deep water or go on until both parties are exhausted and have a new respect for each other. Maybe it's partly because it takes place in an elevated location with a beautiful panoramic view.
If this is their first fight, it's hard to believe it took so long for it to happen.
Edit: It's not.
