Editorial Reviews

Yosuke, a typical slacker kid dozing his way through school, showing nothing in the way of ambition as he quietly mulls over the death of a close friend the year before. He is clever enough and full of smart comments but just doesn't seem to see the point of much in life. That changes when he meets Eri by chance, late one night. She is a beautiful young girl, herself nursing a tragic loss, and for Yosuke it is love at first sight. So what to do when a giant falls from the sky, determined to do battle with Eri (the young girl armed with a brace of hidden knives, as this is obviously a regular occurrence)? Yosuke finds his purpose-he must help the girl he loves, never mind the fact that she is far stronger and better equipped for this battle than he.

3 of 3 people found the following review helpful By Zack Davisson HALL OF FAMETOP 500 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on September 9, 2010
Format: DVD
"Negative Happy Chainsaw Edge" (A direct transliteration of Japanese title "Negatibu happi chenso ejji") was an entirely different and better film than I was expecting. From the name and cover, I was looking forward to a cheesy Japanese chainsaw slasher flick with a healthy dose of panties. Instead, I got a sweet superhero-themed romance tinged with some grief psychology.

I should have known better when I saw that "Negative Happy Chainsaw Edge" is based on a manga and novel by Takimoto Tatsuhiko (Welcome to the N.H.K.). Takimoto generally deals with deeper social and psychological issues under the veneer of slick pop culture, and that is exactly what he delivers here.

High school student Yamamoto Yosuke is a self-confessed wuss. He lives in a tiny one-room school dorm with a roommate who wants to be an artist but never finishes anything he starts, and both of them live in the shadow of their friend Noto. Noto was the cool guy, the leader of their trio who even went out James Dean-style dying in a high speed motorcycle crash that left him forever young and cool. Without the spark of Noto in his life, Yosuke is slowly sinking down into depression and surrender. Suddenly, he runs into Eri, a beautiful "Pretty Soldier" who seems straight out of a comic book. In her schoolgirl uniform and doing impossible martial arts, she battles a massive, dark Chainsaw Man each night, who vanishes when Eri manages to penetrate his exposed heart with one of her knives but reappears again the next night.

Eri (Megumi Seki) is a Japanese schoolgirl mourning the loss of her family. Yosuke (Hayato Ichihara) is a Japanese schoolboy who seems to have no particular ambition and who is mourning the loss of a close friend. When he first encounters her, he decides that he must protect her--from a black-clad, chainsaw-wielding monster who seems to descend from the moon intent on killing Eri.

Based on a novel by Tatsuhiko Takimoto, "Negative Happy Chainsaw Edge" is an at times beautifully filmed and not altogether shallow story. But it is the title, of course, that first drew my attention. How can something called "Negative Happy Chainsaw Edge" not be enjoyable? (The answer comes from the Korean film Teenage Hooker Becomes Killing Machine in Daehakro, which inexplicably was marketed in the U.S. under the shorter title "Killing Machine.") Fortunately, this Japanese film does live up to its title.

The monster that arrives to fight Eri seems to thrive on her sorrow. His arrival is heralded by out-of-season snow, which falls, pauses above the ground, and then disappears as the man with the chainsaw appears. Fortunately, for reasons that are far from clear, Eri is endowed with super abilities herself and generally can vanquish the monster with knives she pulls from her stockings.
