Star Virgin (1988)

Japan is under constant threat from monsters and so is Eiko’s vaunted virginity. So when Tokyo is in danger, she must put her innocence undr threat as well so that her super powers can activate and then things can get simple. I mean, the idea that a woman’s chastity has to be threatened to save a male-dominated country is such a multi-layered thing for my brain to wander around, but then things get simple and Eiko starts beating on frog monsters and taking bubble baths and you’re like, well, I guess I don’t need to use my brain any longer.

Maybe this movie is smarter than it looks, as Star Virgin fights the Statue of Liberty at one point.

This was made by Pony Canyon, who also made video games, and yes, of course there’s a video game tie-in.

You can watch this on YouTube.
