Geneon have announced the Japanese DVD and Blu-Ray releases of 'Assault Girls' for the 23rd June, 2010. Directed by Mamoru Oshii ('Ghost In The Shell'), the live-action feature stars Rinko Kikuchi ('Babel'), Hinako Saeki ('Trick'), and Meisa Kuroki ('Crows Zero') as three warriors in a post-apocalyptic future.
In the aftermath of global thermonuclear war, the Earth’s surface has been turned into a desert battlefield. Three beautiful female hunters: Gray (Meisa Kuroki), Lucifer (Rinko Kikuchi), and Colonel (Hinako Saeki) traverse the barren landscape armed with powerful assault rifles to fight a group of deadly sand-dwelling monsters called “sunakujira” (sand whales). When the the epic battle eventually seems to be coming to an end, the sparkle of muzzle flash dies down and assault ship flies overhead. Suddenly, a gigantic super mutation called “Madara Sunakujira” attacks.
