(Police 09) Perseverance


Sometimes, it takes three decades to get your break in the entertainment business. 30 freakin' years~!
That is exactly how long it took for this Manzai duo, Uehara Haruka and Kanata.
To be honest, I don't know how they're doing now since this batsu game series is about 3 years old? I understand that the Haruka, who appears in this clip, had a role in the Matsumoto's directorial debut film "Dai Nihon Jin" or "Big Man Japan(US release)"
I always enjoyed Itsuji Itao's humor ever since the late 80's. He has this weird off-beat awkwardness to him that was always intriguing. He gazes at you with that blank stare, ever soliciting your smile or laughter. Matsumoto actually believes in him so much that back in 1994 when Itsuji got into trouble with the law (he had sex with a minor)and he went MIA, Matsumoto petitioned to have Itsuji come back on TV. And I believe Itsuji did come back after a year or so. His employment from Yoshimoto Co. was also saved based on the investigation which revealed that the girl had insisted that she was 18 years old and their affair was under mutual consent.By the way, this Indian girl in a clip is not Itsuji's wife in real life. Her name is Sherry. Just so you know...

  5. how weird, the version of the police batsu i've seen didn't have this drug scene, but it had robocop bringing in the bentos.

    Also that Itao wife thing has a different woman everytime he does the bit i think.

  7. Itao's is truly a great actor, he has many faces and is able to play on very different levels. You have to watch him in "Hanging Gardens" he's outstanding.

  8. Itao is also in Tokyo Gore Police as a mad scientist. I don't have this version of the police game, this is probably the DVD cut and I likely have the TV version. Where might I find this version of the police game?

  9. Itao is also the stink monster in Big Man Japan. And if she said she was 18, well, who's going to ask for ID in the heat of the moment?

  11. jinzo: search for a torrent named "batsu game.torrent" with "batsu" written in kanji. See if you can find it on mininova or d-addicts
