Oshii Mamoru’s new live-action movie

Today was a PR event for Oshii Mamoru’s new live-action movie called "Assault Girls" starring actress Kuroki Meisa among others. Recently she denied a possible relationship between her and kabuki actor Nakamura Shido, thus reporters once again plastered her with questions regarding her love life. However, Kuroki had a very cool response. "Love? I’ll become a woman who doesn’t need a man."

Cool would probably be the best way to describe this movie as well. Kuroki, Saeki Hinako and Kikuchi Rinko all play woman who hunt down gigantic monsters in a vast desert. That’ pretty much the whole premise of this movie. Expect a heavy usage of CGI as usual for Oshii live-action movies.

"Assault Girls" will open in Japan on December 19.
