Just in case the utter insnanity of the trailer wasn’t enough to slake your thirst for Japanese cult madness we’ve just scored a trio of stills from Noboru Iguchi’s RoboGeisha. Here’s how I described it when we released the trailer a little more than a week ago:

RoboGeisha is the latest collaboration between Iguchi and special effects man Yoshihiro Nishimura - himself the director of Tokyo Gore Police - and it bears all of the now-classic hallmarks of the duo: outrageous special effects, grotesquely hilarious gore and weapons where weapons just should not go. Machine Girl had the mechanized arm. Iguchi’s earlier Sukeban Boy had leg and breast cannons. Nishimura’s Tokyo Gore Police has the infamous penis cannon. RoboGeisha? This one boasts what the trailer graciously describes as hip-katanas, though the swords are actually placed considerably lower and more to the rear. Yes, Iguchi’s latest has ass-swords and women who aren’t afraid to use them. And that’s not even mentioning the giant robot-building, the transforming geisha-tank or the fried shrimp rammed into eye sockets.

Somehow I forgot to mention that even the buildings spout enormous geysers of blood when damaged in this one and I’m sure there are one or two other moments of true lunacy in there as well. You’ll find the trailer below the break if you missed it the first time, and you can get stills from the link below.
