Kekko Kamen (Review)

[It's Kekko Kamen Fridays!!! Thanks to Insano Steve, for the next few Fridays we'll have a review of the Kekko Kamen series, a sleazy, Skinemaxish superhero movies straight from the headquarters of the strange, Japan. Insano Steve spared no expense in fleshing out the movies and you'll find his reviews stimulating and penetrating. Pun so intended!]

Kekko Kamen

Kekko Kamen (NEW!) (2004)

Directed by Takafume Nagamine

Japan is a country with no natural resources. It's basically a bunch of barren rocks floating in salt water. But the Japanese have made the most of this unfortunate situation by working 18-hour work days and maintaining a conservative culture. This obviously takes a toll on the Japanese psyche so there must be some outlet for these repressed overworked souls.

Hello Hentai!

Hentai is the happy collision of cartoons and pornography.

The Japanese really love their hentai because:

1) They're perverts.

2) One resource they have is great imaginations. Japan is the most technologically advanced nation in the world. They can't just watch the same old porn over and over.

3) They are youth-obsessed. Hello-Kitty/J-Pop crap is a freaking big deal there. And so are cartoons.

Let's take a look at my favorite hentai (well hentai minus the penetration), the wonderful Kekko Kamen. This was an anime that was ironically turned into a series of live-action movies.

Kekko Kamen (which means "Big Tit Avenger" in English), is the story of a girl, Mayumi, who attends the boarding school, "Toenail of Satan's Spartan Institute of Higher Education".

The school is run by sexual deviants (the ManGriffons/MFG) who use the school to grope, peep, molest and torture the students for their own sexual gratification (hey, like the Catholic Church!).

The students' only protection from the pervs is Kekko Kamen. Our heroine wears only red boots, a mask (with rabbit ears!), gloves, scarf, and her trusted nunchakus. So she's always fully frontally nude.

Oh Yeah!

Her special attack is her flying headscissor move, the "Muffication", which works by asphyxiating her enemy with her radioactive vagina. Kekko’s civilian identity is the one non-pervert teacher at the school. Though this is not technically pornography, it is certainly perverted (in a good way of course) and plenty of fun.

Here's a rundown of the first film in the series Kekko Kamen.

Kekko Kamen has the best theme song ever. All movies start and end with this super-catchy theme. My favorite line is "Nobody knows her face, but everybody knows her nipples". That's good shit.

These movies are like only 70 minutes long and have a budget of maybe $200 each. Somehow, they make it work. That’s Japanese efficiency (we have much to learn).

In this episode, Mayumi is attending "Anchorwoman School" for aspiring tele-journalists. Sadly, Mayumi is kinda dumb so she gets punished by being tied up and whipped half-naked on a rocking horse.

There's also some forced extreme teeth brushing (don’t ask).

Later on, Kekko saves Mayumi from a sexually charged eel attack. She also returns all the panties that the school had been harvesting from the student body.

Alas, Mayumi does not get to be an anchorwoman and the ManGriffons escape with the help their teleporter (which is shaped like a dick).
