Welcome to JPH!P, Mucca! Man, I can't believe I'm no longer the only Pinky Violence fan here lol. Anyways Meiko's Scorpion series is pretty brilliant and her Stray Cat Rock series has a couple of gems too. I dig both Ike & Sugimoto but if I had to choose between them I'd pick Reiko for her genre defining nude fight scene in Sex & Fury. By the way, you got any recommendations? I'm really interested in Sugimoto's Zero Woman but I haven't been able to find it
Thanks for the welcome! I love Sex & Fury, too -- in fact, it was the very first Pinky Violence movie I ever saw (the local video shop has a decent selection)! Christina Lindberg is pretty nice in that one, too. I saw its sequel in a store once, but I didn't buy it...and haven't seen it anywhere since
So yeah, Reiko's definitely awesome, I just prefer Miki a little bit more.
The Panik House box set is a really good place to start if you don't have it already. I know they've released a few more titles since that box set, but I've only seen one (Delinquent Girl Boss: Blossoming Night Dreams, which isn't nearly as good as the Delinquent Girl Boss title in the Pinky Violence box set...too much bad slapstick). Beyond that, I own Meiko's Stray Cat Rock: Sex Hunter and Zero Woman. Zero Woman is pretty darn good, and definitely worth tracking down -- when a movie starts with the heroine shooting a guy in his junk, you know you're in for a wild ride!
I've also been interested in seeing some other stuff like the Rica series, but so far I haven't found them for purchase (though I'm pretty sure Amazon has them for sale).
It's good to find some other fans of this stuff; they're trashy as hell, but they're so much fun.
Look up anything related to the Roman Porno (short for "Romantic Porno") stuff by Nikkatsu. It's all a bunch relatively high budget softcore porn movies in all kinds of genres. The angel guts series is all kinds of fucked up and pretty good.
It's all pretty different from pinky violence but I think you would like it.
I own the Angel Guts box set (five movies, I believe). They're definitely fucked up, and not necessarily in a good way. I mean, lots of the Pinky Violence movies have questionable stuff in them -- and I'm not the type to get squeamish easily -- but the sheer amount of rape in the Angel Guts movies makes me uncomfortable (one film in particular is about a female reporter covering rape cases, so you get uncomfortable scene after uncomfortable scene of women being gang-raped).
I suppose if you can get past that, some of the Angel Guts films have some sort of social commentary that the regular Pinky Violence flicks lack...but man, I'm not a fan of all that rape at all.
