Quick Draw Okatsu (Yoen dokufuden: Hitokiri okatsu) (1969)

This sequel to Female Demon Ohyaku is where the heaven begins. Quick-Draw Okatsu is the cream de la cream of violent female swordplay movies. Junko Miyazono returns in different role as a woman raving for revenge. Although she gives a very solid performance she’s actually the weakest link in the cast. The first super delighter is Reiko Oshida, Toei’s purest gift to the female action genre. Appearing in one of the early roles of her career, she plays the mysterious samurai girl character with her trademark energy and delinquent attitude. Both girls handle the sword well, but are naturally overshadowed by the sword god Tomisaburo Wakayama. This time he’s not casted as the comic relief or respected yakuza boss but his own badass himself. The lone wolf, a one man army.

Okatsu The Fugitive (Yoen dokufuden: Okatsu kyojo tabi) (1969)

The final part the trilogy feels almost like a remake of Quick-Draw Okatsu. The storyline starts from the beginning, just like last time, with Miyazono playing a new lead character. While the trick didn’t hurt the second part, third time is starting to feel a bit too much already. The basic concept – Junko with a sword – works of course, but quality has gone down from the terrific previous intalment. The last 25 minutes offers a satisfying conclusion, though, and the supporting cast features some good actors such as the charming Reiko Oshida (doesn’t kill anyone this time) and Tatsuo Umemiya.

Synapse presents all three films nicely. The first film shows edge here and there, but it’s not terribly distracting. Otherwise I can’t really find anything to complain about. The sequel even avoid this problem, and looks just amazing. The same applies to the third film. All transfers are very sharp. Audio is clean on all films as well. As mentioned before, the covers are fully reversible with the original poster arts on the reverse side. Extras are sparse but okay; Chris D commentary for the first film, and trailers, poster galleries, biographies and 4 page booklets for each film.

Note: while the first film is more or less pinky violence - although not quite as we know the genre - the sequels are pure chambara. Basically these reviews are in the wrong thread.

I thought the first film was good but not anything amazing.

From your review it looks like i'm gonna have to order the second one and could probably live with skipping the third.


Have you watched Blossoming Night Dreams?Reika isn't so pure :wink:


Hopefully we hear something on the Ginza Watadori films soon.

Once Bohachi comes out next week their won't be any new subbed pinky violence on the horizon. :|

Oh definitely. It is pure greatness. You can't live without it.
Classique wrote: and could probably live with skipping the third
Well, I thought you might want to see it because of Umemiya? And of course Reiko is in it, too, but her role is very small. But yeah, the film is only good, not amazing or anything.
Classique wrote: Have you watched Blossoming Night Dreams?
Yes, I have. I just thought three reviews was enough for last night... And I didn't want to post any Reiko pureness earlier in the middle of the Nikkatsu sleaze...

I Love her.

Delinquent Girl Boss: Blossoming Night Dreams (Zubekô banchô: Yume wa yoro hirakua) (1970)

Kazuhiko Yamaguchi is slowly but unsurely becoming one of my favourite directors. I’ve enjoyed every film I’ve seen from him, and Blossoming Night Dreams is no exception. While not as good as Worthless to Confess, this opening part in the series is an enormously entertaining girl gang pop film. The cast is excellent with Toei’s crown jewel dynamo Reiko Oshida playing the lead role, and reliable genre actors such as Yukie Kagawa and Nobuo Kaneko giving support. The most impressive supporting performances are given by Tatsuya Umemiya and Junko Miyazono, who plays her role as the leader of the gang with charisma that reminded me of Junko Fuji.

Exploitation Digital’s dvd is okay. Soft, definitely, but no other major problems. Colours are quite alright, even if a bit reddish at times, and edge enhancement doesn’t exist. Progressive, too. Of course this could’ve been better, but I don’t really see reason to complain too much. Exploitation Digital is one of the few companies in the world that care enough to even release these great films on dvd.

Yes.You know things are getting a little dried up when you have to go for Nikkatsu stuff. :(

Good point about Umemiya in the third Okhatsu film.Him and Miyazono have pretty good chemistry together so i'll probably get it eventually just not gonna rush out.

Enjoyed the Blossoming review.I'm still gonna stand by my original feeling that that it's overall better then Worthless To Confess except for the ending.
So much quality fanservice in Blossoming Night Dreams.Reika riding that bike in the beginning.I need to rewatch it again tonight :twisted:

hehe, true, although lately I've managed to find a couple of Nikkatsu movies that I've really enjoyed (Retreat and Painful Bliss). I also have high hopes for pop director Koyu Ohara's Pink Hip Girl, which I have on order.

Thanks. Good to hear there's still at least one person reading my writings. I probably angered all the Nikkatsu fans already, lol.

Oh yeah, and a glorious panty shot, too (didn't want to "spoil" that with a creencap. But that bicycle shot in in the beginning is definitely my favourite).

btw, the film crew must be huge Ken Takakura fans since in the first film Reiko is doing the girl gang greeting in front of a Takakura movie poster, and in Worthless to Confess they're watching Abashiri Prison... which remided me of: In Nikkatsu's Painful Bliss not only is there a Takakura poster, but the film also features the theme song from Worthless to Confess at the end.

It's funny how iconic Ken Takakura really is/was.He's probably been referenced in more movies then he's been in and more then any actor ever.
From Delinquent Girl Boss to even Postmen Blues his image is still present to this day.

Considering how small the amount of toei pv fans their are i'd warrant a guess their are even less Nikkatsu fans to offend. :lol:

Btw speaking of the bike riding how about Reika up against that rock on the beach in Blossoming Night Dreams?
Pretty hot scene.Much better then Miki digging her feet in a pile of dirt in Girl Boss Revenge.

While were waiting i'm gonna get off my butt and post some caps from the first Gincho Watadori film this weekend.
Meiko spends most of the second movie in a kimono but in the first she gets to wear alot of cool outfits. :)

Nice!

I have a hard time picking a favorite out of the series.

I love 1,2,3,5 and enjoyed 4 and 6 but felt they paled a little in comparison.

I do remember the third having one of the better Wakayama appearances.

Part 5 would have had his best appearance if they woulda showed him wielding a sword in all his skilled glory a bit more.

Btw is you avatar from Taifu Club?I need to finish watching that one of these days.
Botched the sub alignment for the custom I made and could only take it for about half the movie.Gonna get off my arse and re-do it again one of these years. :lol:

Anyways better late then never.

Little warm up for synapse to release this hopefully sometime this year.

If you like Kazuhiko Yamaguchi I don't think you should even begin to wonder if you will enjoy this movie.

First is the must have girl gang greeting being performed in a familiar setting.

Heres the rest-

Hopefully these came out all right.

The source is nothing to write home about and I had to use a ghetto builtin windows vista dvd player with print screen. :lol:

Sukeban (Girl Boss Revenge) (1973)

The fourth film in the seven part Sukeban series is also the last one directed by Norifumi Suzuki. Although not quite as good as Sukeban gerira (Girl Boss Guerilla) but it’s another highly enjoyable exploitation piece. Suzuki serves his usual mix of action and silly humour, this time spiced with some sadistic violence. The cast is quaranteed to make any genre fan cheer; Miki Sugimoto, Reiko Ike and Ema Ryoko all leading a girl gangs of their own, and Toei’s number one bad guy Bin Amatsu as the treacherous villain. Tatsuo Endo and Yoko Mihara and also make brief appearances.

Exploitation Digital’s has given the film a satisfactory release. The image not very sharp but looks rather pleasing and doesn’t feature any major problems (except the sides. Look at the caps and you’ll see something weird going on. But unless you have a zero overscan TV you won’t be able to notice anything). However, what makes this dvd a must buy (aside from the film itself) is the new 14 min Norifumi Suzuki interview. Although not as indepth as it could be it’s still a great pleasure to finally hear the director speak. I believe this is the first time ever Suzuki appears on dvd extras. The disc also contains a nice photo gallery. The trailer is not original, but a disappointing new promo.

The Swedes are releasing Sadao Nakajima’s Journey to Japan (1973), starring Christina Lindberg. There’s even a good change it will be released in Finland, too (Nordic dvd releases are rarely limited to just one country). But even a Swedish disk with Swedish subtitles only would be a notable step up from unsubbed R2J's (which for this film does not excist, as Studio S Entertaiment's release is a Världspremiär på DVD!).

They are also releasing Sex & Fury. Both discs are coming in Summer 2008

I don't know how final this is but the site is now showing this pic:

I wish they had used the orig poster instead. Journey to Japan will be released 27.8.2008.

Music from the film was featured on Hotwax's Sadao Nakajima CD.

I don't know if it's very profitable anymore. They would lose the japanese customers and other people who are getting the Toei discs. But of course I wish they would release them.

Btw, subs for the first Sukeban film are available, and in my possession.

Half of Toei’s pinky violence movies are still not available on dvd. These include well know films by directors like Ishii and Suzuki, but also films that are practically unknown in the west. I’ll try to list some of them (more posts to come)

This film is directed by Motohiro Torii, who may be better known as screenwriter. He participated in writing Red Peony Gambler 3 and The Street Fighter, among others. The film stars Reiko Ohara, Junko Natsu, Tsunehiko Watase, Nobuo Kaneko and Asao Koike

The next two films are directed by Makoto Naito, who also did 13 Steps (get it on dvd already, Toei!) with Etsuko Shihomi, and several Furyo Bancho movies.

Discotek's Bohachi Bushido has been delayed a few times, but it seem like the disc is now available from their website. Other retailers mention 20.5 as the release date.

So, everybody who doesn't own the film yet, order it now. It's the best chambara film to come out since Lone Wolf and Cub.
