Those hack-and-slash Onechanbara video games have been made into motion pictures that, like the games, mix violence and titillation. A spin-off Chanbara movie goes straight to the titillation.
Out on home video this month in the West, Chanbara Striptease is what you'd expect from a movie called Chanbara Striptease. Though, the original Japanese title "Oppai Chanbara" seems to be slightly more accurate. ("Oppai" means "breasts" in Japanese.) From the BeyondHollywood.com review:
There are a couple of moments of inspired madness, the most memorable of which involves characters using their breasts to wield swords during a duel, and this helps to keep things moving along quite nicely.
Created by the folks that made the Onechanbara films, the flick follows 20-year-old Lilli as she is transported back to 18th Century Japan where she learns she can increase her fighting abilities by flashing her norgs.
Chanbara Striptease seems tame in the gore department compared to what is available on Japanese straight-to-video cinema — or even compared to the Onechanbara games! The film actually pre-dates the second Onechanbara film, which was released abroad as "Chanbara Beauty" and stars curvy Yuu Tejima. The first Onechanbara film was released in spring 2008. This one was made in 2008 and then released in Japan in February 2009. And as previously mentioned, it is getting released this month in the West.
