From the director of Meatball Machine comes AKANBO SHÔJO which is based on the serial manga of the same name. "A beautiful girl, Yoko, gets lost one night during an air raid and is taken in by an orphanage. Eventually, she is reunited with her own family and goes home to live with them. But there, an unexpected fate awaits her as she is subjected to horrific brutality from these people who are tortured by a past mistake. In the original comic series, the character 'Tamami' left many readers traumatized, and it is interesting to see how Yudai, a proven talent at adapting comics for the screen, chooses to portray her." Going head to head in it's theatrical release on August 2nd with The Machine Girl in Japan, it will also be having it's US premier at the NYAFF. Unfortunately I can't see the trailer very well at work due to 2 lcd screens which are pretty dark, but from what I can see it looks pretty sweet! Check it out after the break.
