This film is one of several adaptations, both animated and live action, of a manga of the same name. It tells the story of a girl named Mayumi who has been accepted to a finishing school for future journalists. The school is also a haven for sadism and students are regularly punished in absurdly violent and erotic ways, with obvious campy intentions. For instance, Mayumi is being punished by way of taking a flogging while strapped to a rocking horse in nothing but her underwear when the film's heroine appears: Kekko Kamen, savior of the mistreated. Completely nude except for red boots and a red mask with long floppy ears, she roughs up the faculty so that Mayumi can pursue her dream of being an anchorwoman. The film parodies itself in its low budget and sexually explicit nature, going so far as having a character suggest that another character take some action because it will "advance the plot." ~ Cammila Albertson, All Movie Guide

Not very clever by zimmerman January 19, 2006 - 3:22 PM PST

The animated series is strange, funny, kinky, and clever, but this live action video misses the point. The writing lacks wit, the scenes are amateurish and frankly it lacks the ability to titillate. Considering that it lacks all of these things I consider it a waste of a cast with potential. You're better of with the cartoon.
