The Ancient Dogoo Girl - The Sexy Series Is Being Remixed Into A Movie

Fans on this side of the Pacific have been going bananas wanting to see episodes of Noboru Iguchi's delightfully sexy Japanese superhero series, "The Ancient Dogoo Girl" since I first unleashed the trailer on Youtube last September.

Come to find out, they were not alone. You see, many fans in Japan also missed out on seeing the series as well. The show, which starred the buxom 20-year-old Erika Yazawa as the resurrected ancient monster fighter Dogu-chan, aired on a minor Japanese cable network that was only available in select areas.

So what do you do when your show is in high demand and you can't reach your audience via regular broadcasting? You take select bits from the episodes and remix them together, add more skin, violence and gore, then release the whole stew as a movie.

And that is exactly what Iguchi is planning to do.

Four episodes from the television will be cut up and re-edited to provide 2/3 of the films content. The final third will consist of brand-new footage directed by Yoshihiro Nishimura, starring Asami, of "Robo-Geisha" fame, as a "phantom Dogu-chan" who is also brought out of a thousand year slumber to battle the Dogoo Girl.

The whole thing promises to be even more racy and violent than the television series, which says a lot.

Here is the basic story behind "The Ancient Dogoo Girl":

By chance, the withdrawn, and socially awkward teenage son of a bumbling archaeologist, named Makoto Sugihara finds a strange breastplate buried in the woods. When he places his palm on the breast plate, its design gets burned into his palm and awakens a girl named Dogu-chan, a hyperactive ykai hunter from the Jomon period. Because he had touched her breastplate, Makoto is now bound to Dogu-chan as she adapts to modern day life, forcing Makoto to go with her as she fights ykai in magic armor along with her animated Dogoo statuette companion Dokigoro while slowly prying Makoto out of his shell, whether he likes it or not.

"The Ancient Dogoo Girl" (series) has been released on DVD throughout Asia, but copies have been hard to find. I did manage to find a region-free copy with English subtitles through Amazon. I have posted a link to that at the bottom of this article.

First, though, I thought that you may enjoy seeing a couple more photos of Eika Yazawa in her revealing "Dogoo Girl" costume:

  1. Excellent news!

    I had no idea this show was available on DVD at all, let alone with subtitles. I'm straight off to order it now!
