Tomorrow’s Joe (2011), DVD release date: Aug. 19, 2011
Based on Ashita no Joe manga. directed by Souri Fumihiko, who also directed Ping Pong (2002), which I consider to be the greatest sports comedy of all time.
Starring, Yamashita Tomohisa, Karina, and Kagawa Teruyuki etc. The cast is star-studded.
There’s already an English subtitle floating around with a leaked rip, but it appears to be re-translated Indonesian subs (it’s actually very good for correct lines, but had over 50 critical errors throughout the movie), so I decided to go ahead with it anyway. Our release should be ready in about a week.
As for the movie, there are some corny / over-acted scenes, but as a seinen film, it’s an excellent GAR movie. Well-directed as expected, and the budget appears to be pretty high, as there’s quite a bit of special effects. Subs + rip should be ready in about a week.
