Pink Eiga Returns with DVDs from Yôjirô Takita and Yutaka Ikejima
DVD label Pink Eiga is still flying the pinku flag high and strong. They have recently released two noteworthy titles: Yôjirô Takita's Sexy Timetrip Ninjas and Yutaka Ikejima's The Japanese Wife Next Door Part 2. If you like pinku, these release deserve your support.
Pink Eiga has become the "go to" source for those who want to peek deep into the pinku phase of Yôjirô Takita's career. First, they released two Groper Train films -- Search for the Black Pearl and Wedding Capriccio -- on DVD. Now, they are unleashing another Groper Train movie called Sexy Timetrip Ninjas. This film uses a time travel contrivance to transport warring ninjas, one of whom is played by Yukijro Hotaru, to Tokyo during the 1980s. As one might guess, the battle of the ninjas eventually ends up on a train. Groping ensues.
Japanese Wife Next Door: Part 2 was directed by Yutaka Ikejima, whose lifer status in the industry has earned him the nickname "Mr. Pink." The story line, which is about a businessman looking for a wife, picks up where the first film left off. Akane Yazaki is the female lead; Reiko Yamaguchi shows up in a special appearance.
Both DVDs are packed with the usual assortment of special features, including trailers, slideshows, exclusive interviews, and audio commentaries.
