WMU JAPAN CLUB

Hello Japan Club members after some reviewing of what would be a great first movie to set off our movie extravaganza we the e-board members had decided on

Bokuchu” Us vs the Police: 700-Day War

summery
the setting for this story is a country town in 1970’s Japan. One day, Saijo-kun, one of the biggest trouble makers of our school, was caught speeding on his scooter. As his friends, “we” commenced our counterattack on the local resident police officer. Our opponent was a newly appointed, motivated, and young Chuzai-san (resident local police officer). Chuzai-san kept getting back at us with his clever counterattacks! To boot, this Chuzai-san had a young and beautiful wife! Our prank war escalated, and its circumstances wrapped the whole town in confusion. This is the heartwarming (?) story about “our” relationship with “Chuzai-san.”

There will be something else for you to do to help out – I PROMISE.
