Yoyo Girl Cop

// 16 July 2007

Here’s one to look out for at the cinema: Yoyo Girl Cop, or Sukeban Deka. Based on a popular manga series from the late 70s to early 80s, Tokyomango describes it like this:

Boys loved her short skirts and girls loved that she was stronger and smarter than anyone around. The protagonist, Saki Asamiya, doesn’t carry a gun or a samurai sword or anything, just a yo-yo and a whole lot of attitude.

From the name alone, it’s obviously not going to be a very serious movie. According to Wikipedia, Saki Asamiya has a yoyo that doubles as a “deadly weapon”. Here’s the trailer:
