    Keitai Sousakan 7 - Thoughts & Opinions

    This was an unusual series but considering it was directed and produced by the master of the unusual, Takashi Miike, although it wasn't over the top unusual, but there was an interesting juxtaposition, because it combined the thrilling sort of high tech espionage action of a series like say...
