Sailor Moon Cosplay Gone Wrong in a Movie!

And Completely in the Wrong Context!

The following article contains material best suited for a mature audience.

Ubisoft's Fantasia Film Festival began in Montreal on July 5th, and runs until the 22nd. The film festival showcases the best in international genre cinema. Highlights of this film festival include two live-action Death Note movies (1 & 2), Ghost in the Shell: Solid State Society, and two documentaries, one about Hayao Miyazaki and Studio Ghibli, and the other about Otaku. We'd like to see if that's better than the pitiful Otaku Unite! Side note - if you are okay with Otaku being portrayed as manic obsessive, then OU! is for you, otherwise don't waste your time! Back to the subject at hand, while we were doing our newsrounds, we found a very odd Sailor Sighting with respect to a film at this festival.

The Korean film, Dasepo Sonyo (Dasepo Naughty Girls)is a terribly bizarre, teen sex musical comedy. One reviewer said that he enjoyed it over most teen movies he had seen , but we get a little queasy reading about the details from his review. It is based on the popular webcomic of the same name, and takes place in a high school. The Sailor Sighting in this movie concerns the character "Poverty Girl", who pays off her mother's debts by joining a gangster and dressing up like Sailor Moon (it's her prostitute uniform =O). Every teenager has sex on the brain and the bizarre colors and songs in this movie have made it a hit among a very specific audience. There's more but we're not really sure about seeing this movie (but are letting the fans know nonetheless should any of you want to watch). If you want to watch some trailers, click here with caution. Don't say we didn't warn you!

I saw this about 4 months ago. Not a bad movie. Pretty funny in parts, even for a foreigner.

The director also made a TV series based on the same thing at the same time. 26ish episodes I think. It was 4 DVDs, I haven't watched that yet.
