"What can a high school student like me do in a crazy battle between crazy monsters?"
A Japanese gorntastic romantic horror comedy from the year 2009, directed by Yoshihiro Nishimura and Naoyuki Tomomatsu.
It follows the the Ordinary High-School Student Jyugon, who finds himself caught in the middle of a Love Triangle between the vampire Monami and (after the halfway-point) Frankensteinian Keiko.
In this crossfire of love we find:
- Alucard: Monami Arukado (Alucard).
- An Axe to Grind: When bodyparts are needed for Furano's experiments, Midori will grab the axe.
- Asshole Victim: The first person we see Monami eat is a creep trying to pick up underage girls. The second is a peeping-tom. That these are her only on-screen human victims keeps her from crossing the Moral Event Horizon.
- Battle Butler: Igor, Monami's partner willing to fight for her when the going gets rough.
- Big Bad: Furano is the closet thing to one, being the one responsible for several murders throughout the story, and is the creator of the titular Frankenstein Girl.
- Blackface: The ganguro clique, who are comprised of Asian women pretending to be African. Their leader, Afro Rika, is revealed to cherish African culture, seeing them as the dominant race.
- Bloody Murder: Vampire blood is capable of independent movement, and its owner can shape it into anything from blades to bullets to wheels.
- The Cameo: Like the director's previous flick, director Takashi Shimizu appears as the Chinese teacher, who at one point, rambles on about the Ju-on series.
- Camera Abuse: The screen gets covered in blood plenty of times.
- Covers Always Lie: Some DVD covers make the movie seem more sexier than it actually is.
- Crucified Hero Shot: Abducted Jyugon is tied to a cross when Monami comes to his rescue.
- Crusty Caretaker: Igor is portraying one.
- Dirty Old Man: Mr. Uchiyama, who goes around taking photos of high school girls. This naturally, gets her killed by Monami when he tries to take candid photos of her.
- Dual Wielding: Used by both eponymous combatants.
- Dull Surprise: Even before he was turned into a vampire, Jyugon reacts to everything around him with the same bored, tired expression and voice.
- Even Evil Has Loved Ones:
- Subverted. Furano at first is saddened by Keiko's death, but is immediately happy about it because that means he can experiment on her body and use her for his research.
- Subverted with Monami. She initially seems to genuinely love Jyugon, but in the end it turns out that she only wants him as a new slave.
- Eyepatch of Power: Monami is wearing one in the opening.
- For Science!: Furano's motivation.
- Ghost Memory: Monami projects her memories on Jyugon's mind when he tastes her blood.
- Gorn: From the makers of Tokyo Gore Police! Bring an umbrella.
- Hospital Hottie: Midori, Furano's assistant, who gets attention from all the male students.
- Mad Scientist: Furano, the crazed Kabuki scientist, is willing to do anything for his experiments.
- Mad Scientist's Beautiful Daughter: Keiko, Furano's daughter, though he doesn't seem to really care for her.
- Monumental Battle: Monami's and Keiko's climactic duel takes it place on top of the Tokyo Tower.
- Non-Action Guy: Jyugon, an average joe who doesn't pull any punches, especially compared to Keiko and Monami.
- One-Winged Angel: Furano, after being Impaled with Extreme Prejudice and later being revealed to be Not Quite Dead with the use of Monami's blood, he becomes a Franken Advanced Composite Life Form, a grotesque Kaiju-like monster. The movie ends just as Monami begins to fight Furano once more.
- Oral Fixation: Furano biting his nails. It leads to him discovering the properties of vampire blood when he actually bites his finger.
- The Renfield: Igor, who serves Monami.
- Roller Blade Good: Monami's mother uses her blood to create rollerskate during her fight against Sumo From Hell.
- Sadist Teacher: Mr. Uchiyama, whose first scene involves him cruelly taking away his student's chocolates... on Valentine's Day no less!
- Sequel Hook: Monami confronting Furano's One-Winged Angel form.
- Serious Business: Being a ganguro and wrist cutting.
- Shock and Awe: Both Furano and resurrected Midori use electrically charged weapons.
- Stylistic Suck: Likely intentional, the movie is a throwback to b-horror movies so it has a few cases of obvious Special Effects Failure as early as Monami attacking the creeper when she goes to her Game Face, with it being fairly obvious her wide-mouth monster form is a puppet and of course all the fake limbs being lost through the film and Gorn. Part of the fun though of course.
- Skeletons in the Coat Closet: Igor dons an armour made of bones when he goes on the Battle Butler mode.
- Supernatural Gold Eyes: Full-powered vampires have these.
- Unusual Weapon Mounting: The Sumo From Hell, whom Monami's mother fought in the past, is shown having a gun on top of his head.
