Editorial Reviews

When you wake up half naked and covered with graffiti, your week's bound to go downhill quickly, but it's not just that this isn't the position she wanted. How did a girl like Mai end up coaching the worst sumo team in the history of Japan? Okay, sleeping with the sensei and those photos floating around the net might have something to do with it, but they're barely even a real sumo team! With only 3 members and not a single match in something like 7 years, if they don't get into competition this year there won't be a next one! Sounds like the perfect chance for a bright and energetic girl to inspire everyone and prove that she can make a difference, right? Well, not really, because these guys are REALLY bad!

Mai is a promiscuous, not-all-that-intelligent college student who shares an apartment with Hiromi, a smart girl, and a virgin. Mai, because of an teacher-student sexual affair she is having with a professor, is forced to become a manager of the college sumo wrestling club so she can graduate. Only two sumo wrestlers, who are more interested in eating sensei soup than competing, are in the defunct club, due to a bar brawl some years before. Mai, who has no interest in the club, gets Hiromi's 'boyfriend', Kazu, to become the third member of the team so the club can officially compete. This is the premise, and I will not give out more of the plot.

The DVD is a straight-to-video offering, with no really known actors or actresses. It looks to be shot on an HD camera, with poor sound work. The clothing does not change much, so, even though the movie takes place in a lengthy period of time, it looks to be shot within a few days. The acting is not great, but dialogue is delivered decently. The story is not original, although the setting is (come on, a silly movie about sumo wrestlers whose head is 30- years -old and skinnier than Sinatra in his early years?!?).

The movie's sound work is poor. The mic is too far away from the actors in many scenes. One can even approximate where the mic was located from the back-and-forth dialogue. The movie could be much better if remade. My one gripe is the softcore (and I mean softcore) sex scenes that appear about every 10 minutes of narrative. Both roomates are shown near-entirely nude (obviously the pubic area is never shown). The men have butt cracks, but usually keep their underwear on. These scenes are not all that erotic, and look forced. The scenes are not necessary (at least to me).
