She, The Ultimate Weapon

I’ve just heard that “She, The Ultimate Weapon” aka The Last Love Song On This Little Planet or in Japanese SaiKano (Saishuu Heiki Kanojo) has been made into a live action movie. I just found out a few minutes ago and I’m stoked to say the least, because of 3 things:

A) The girl who plays Chise (Aki Maeda) also played the part of Noriko Nakagawa in my favorite movie Battle Royale. I thought she looked and sounded familiar right away in the trailer.

B) Back in 2003 I sat down and watched my first anime. It was the anime that this movie is based on also called She, The Ultimate Weapon and therefore is somewhat extra special to me.

C) When it comes to anime vs. live action I’d choose the latter any day. Few animes have truly captivated me.

Shuji and Chise are two Hokkaido high school students barely starting a relationship with each other. Then, with no warning, a squadron of bombers from an unknown country destroy the city of Sapporo. All hope is lost when suddenly, the bombers are destroyed by a small red light floating across the sky. At this point, Shuji finds out that the one responsible for eliminating the enemy forces is Chise, who reveals herself as a cyborg engineered for mass-destruction.

And here’s the trailer:


UPDATE: I’ve replaced the trailer with a version with English subs.
