Kamikaze Girls 2004 (Japan), also known as Shimotsuma monogatari is Japan drama premiere on May 29, 2004
Momoko yearns to be part of the Rococo aristocracy. A shame then, as she was born two centuries too late. Ardent loner, Momoko was born into the Yakuza heart-land. She feels, however, more at home in Versaille than her distant town of Shimotsuma, Ibaraki. Her appetite for the lavish doll-like fashion known to its disciples as "Lolita" is insatiable.
The uber-rebel, Ichiko, is a Bosozoku motor-cycle-gang member. On a fifty C.C. scooter. Laugh at your own risk before she knocks your teeth out. Her Pony-tails gang is one of Ibaraki's "wild speed tribes" whose teeth-rattling customized bikes are decked out with fibreglass shields and bannered back rests. She, too, is decked out in her elaborately decorated Tokkofuku boiler-suits.
In a world as colourful as Momoko's sweet-filled lunch-box, the paths of these two incongruous girls cross one languid summer. Asses are kicked (and garments embroidered). KAMIKAZE GIRLS: where Rameau meets the Japanese underbelly on the summery streets of Tokyo. Meet some different Girls on a Motor-cycle that would make The Bride blush...
