Born June 28, 1969 in Tokyo, Japan, Noboru Iguchi is a director/writer best known for his crazy Japanese B-movies and exploitation flicks involving insane violence, fanservice galore, and a whole lot of flatulence.

Notable films he's directed:

Recurring tropes in Noboru's works include:

  • Action Girl: His movies have a lot of them.
  • B-Movie: His films scream this more than his contemporaries.
  • Fanservice: There's a lot of naked women in his movies.
  • Gainax Ending: Plenty.
  • Gasshole: F is for Fart and Zombie Ass take this to almost fetishistic levels.
  • Gorn: His films have no shortage of blood, with most of his effects done by Yoshihiro Nishimura.
  • Grey-and-Gray Morality: His protagonists are either pathetic, or practically sociopaths who bully others, and sometimes his villains are not as bad as they seem.
  • Mind Screw: It's easy to say which Noboru film doesn't have an element of this, with RoboGeisha being his strangest to date. Just try reading the plot synopsis and try to make sense of it.
  • Refuge in Audacity: His works would be complete tripe if they weren't so over-the-top self-aware.
  • Sliding Scale of Idealism Versus Cynicism: Very cynical. No one is all that likable, the main characters are constantly getting picked on, nothing good ever really happens to anyone, and the villains aren't much better than the heroes.
