Sky High (2003)(Toei Co. Ltd.)


Sky High (also known as Skyhigh) is a supernatural action film from director Ryuhei Kitamura. It is based on the manga of the same title by Tsutomu Takahashi and serves as a prequel to a Japanese television drama of the same name, and starring the same actress, Yumiko Shaku. Although the film is a prequel to the series, the film was made while the series was still in production, sometime between the first and second seasons. The film had a clear effect on the direction of the second season, as evidenced in the look and style of Mina/Izuko's second season costuming—more similar to the darker, edgier look she sports in the film, as opposed to the softer, colourful, kimono-like outfit of the first season. The film reveals how the somewhat meek Mina
became the heroic Izuko, as seen in the series (and the film’s action climax).

A serial-murderer is removing his victims hearts and taking them with him. Kanzaki is a detective on the case. The day he is due to be married his fiancé, Mina, is killed displaying the same MO as the other victims. He discovers geneticist, Kudo, and Rei, his evil "secretary" to be the killers. When they have six hearts they will be able to summon demons from beyond the 'Gate of Rage' to grant any wish, but darkness will fall upon the earth. Mina becomes Guardian of the Gate of Rage, and must fight Kudo when he is killed. Kanzaki enters the world of the dead to protect her.
