Impossibly-Cool Cover Art: Rape-man of Edo

There are a great many films from Japan that will never be released in America.  It may be due to social relevance, international awkwardness or content.  This is most definitely the latter...
Wow, that's...the creepiest version of Batman ever- Frank Miller be damned!  Oh yeah, this thing is also a bit of dark comedy.  Yeah, I don't get it either.

Next up, a movie about killer birds shows you how to sell a movie properly.  Kaw indeed.  Stay tuned...


  1. Oh man, I was scrolling down to see what I missed and I started cracking up, best title ever. EVER!!!

  2. I have surfed to Wiki to find the Rapeman. Although this one disregards human (eh ... women's) rights without remorse, the character concept of the Rapeman made me LMAO for god-knows-how-long minutes! Actually I first found out about the Rapeman from

    Now that the Rapeman does his rape ... *ahem* ... trade as a business, maybe he should ask his uncle: 'Hey, uncle! I got a question. Should I rape as an individual or as a corporation?'

  3. I've watched two rapeman films, they're surprisingly good, the original manga seems fucke dup beyond belief, but the movie versions are pretty light hearted, and well made. There are actual plots and well developed characters. Of course, rape is wrong, but the film doesn't dwell much on rape, despite the name. They were well made and successful enough to make nine films, having seen 3 and 4, I can say they aren't even porn, despite the fact that three starts out with a sex scene. I think the manga is porn though.
