Girls, guns, giant robots and giant monsters!
All of the above blowing stuff up!

These things can be seen in this mindless and mind blowing trailer for the upcoming Japanese movie Assault Girls; a film that seems to have all the elements of an adrenaline pumping anime style, sci-fi action flick. Oh and I almost forgot, it has a story:

In the aftermath of global thermonuclear war, the Earth’s surface has been turned into a desert battlefield. Three beautiful female hunters: Gray (Meisa Kuroki), Lucifer (Rinko Kikuchi), and Colonel (Hinako Saeki) traverse the barren landscape armed with powerful assault rifles to fight a group of deadly sand-dwelling monsters called “sunakujira” (sand whales). When the the epic battle eventually seems to be coming to an end, the sparkle of muzzle flash dies down and assault ship flies overhead. Suddenly, a gigantic super mutation called “Madara Sunakujira” attacks.

Assault Girls will have a Japanese national premier after a limited screening on December 17, 2009.

Sophie - Wut

Sometimes imagination can run too wild, and nothing can simultaneously express the mixed feelings of attraction and confusion as being gender bent from one’s current sex into the other. The gender bending idea of some RR members came about when Nerese thought of the idea and did some concept sketches a while back which resonated positively among members. After a year’s worth of waiting, those sketches are finally up and the floodgates have opened.

Check out Nerese‘s concept sketches here.

iraya-sama has been kind enough to further this trend by making her own original water colored artworks of some RR gender bent characters in very good quality: Continue reading »
