This is the trailer for Assault Girls, directed by Mamoru Oshii, and put at the top of his to-do list by Roman Polanski (haha, good one, Jay!). It opens December 29th in Japan and the trailer’s all in Japanese except for a couple of lines. But as my old home ec teacher Mrs. Stevenson used to say, the language of hot chicks blowing up dragons with guns is universal. It also has robots and J-pop, because why not. And the monsters are vaguely phallic, which I’m sure was totally accidental. I wish Octopussy had been made in Japan. It’d be about a girl with eight vaginas getting raped by an octopus. Works on multiple levels, you see.
