The series, which has been serialized in Comic High! since 2007, centers around a high school girl so obsessed with underwear that she starts a club devoted to the particular clothing aspect, hoping to spread happiness to the girls at her school through the effects of good “pantsu” selection.

Onechanbara DVD slated for Aug.

17 05 2009

JG OnechanbaraThose looking forward to the video-game based movie  Onechanbara: Zombie Bikini Squad won’t have to wait long — the DVD is slated for an August U.S. release.

Based on the Xbox 360 game, Onechanbara is about almost exactly what its subtitle suggests — a group of scantily clad females hack and slash their way through hordes of zombies before they take over the metropolis. The original game was panned by critics for its repetitive gameplay, though fans were not likely complaining.

The film will be released in anamorphic widescreen, with Japanese audio and English subtitles.  To see a trailer for the film, click: Here!
