    Takashi Miike's Yatterman is to be released in the UK on DVD & Blu-ray this May

    Inline Image
    Classic seventies anime series Yatterman flies to the silver screen in a brilliant crime-fighting explosion of candy-coloured camp, over-the-top adventure, and pure popcorn entertainment. Directed by legendary cult director Takashi Miike (13 Assassins, Ichi The Killer, Audition) and featuring a brand new plot and re-imaged characters, this live action debut of Yatterman will re-define the robot action adventure genre.

    Gan, the only son of a toy shop owner, and his girlfriend Ai are just normal teens who like to tinker away with robotic inventions - that is, when they're not out keeping the world safe from evil! Together with their giant robot dog Yatterwoof, and their small incompetent robot Toybotty, Gan & Ai transform into crime-fighting duo Yatterman to fight for world peace. Waging battle against perennial nemesis, the Doronbo gang (formed by sexy villainess Doronjo and her lackeys Boyacky, and Tonzra), the trio will stop at nothing to recover the powerful wish-granting Skull Stone, but they'll have to get past Yatterman first!

    Yatterman is released in the UK on DVD & Blu-ray by Eureka Entertainment on 21 May 2012
