Geisha is…Robot

I wasn’t sure what to think a few months back when I was given a link to the trailer of Cat Shit One with no further information.


It has this Watership Downish feel to it, and thus my soul keeps preparing to be depressed while watching that.

Apparently it’s based off a manga series, called Apocalypse Meow in English, by Motofumi Kobayashi. The manga was based in Vietnam; the movie is set in the Middle East. Hmm. It will be developed into an anime, too. It’s just that good.

But that’s not why I’m posting today. I’m posting because the ridiculousness of Japanese movies has led me to watch yet another bizarre trailer that I’m not sure I’d be able to endure for more than the length of 4 minutes:

Behold, RoboGeisha. NSFW! You might not want to watch if you don’t like gratuitous violence, including hip-katana-induced wounds, fried shrimp eye-gouging (although this was more funny then violent), female bleeding backsides, or Engrish voiceovers that may just make your ears bleed.

This movie would be ADORABLE if not for the masses of blood. It has a cute air about it, so the violence truly feels out of place. Amazing.

Designer, artist, author, comic enthusiast, and geek about visual design/video games/Japan/human rights. Among other things!
