    Description: No people ... Its not what you think ...
    IT IS NOT part of the "Yakuza Papers BOXSET" a.k.a " Battles Without Honor and Humanity " pentology which already exists here.
    This is the first part of the " NEW " Battles Without Honor and Humanity Trilogy !

    Part 1 of the New Battles Without Honor and Humanity Trilogy was exactly what I'd expect from Kinji Fukasaku; raw and very violent. This volume is star studded (Bunta Sugawara, Hiroki Matsukata, and the Tokyo Drifter Himself Tetsuya Watari just to name a few). The movie is set in Kure (same place as Yakuza Papers part 1), and the initial story once again revolves around the Yamamori clan. Boss Yamamori is the same whining, crying bastard you hate from the original series. The music is also the same, and it is set during the same time period, but the similarities stop there. It seems to me that Fukasaku just took a formula that worked (setting, actors, music,) and set it to a new story.

    In this new series Bunta plays Mikio Miyoshi of the Yamamori family. He is a similar type of character to the one he played in the first set of movies. These new ones are different though. There is a lot more (non - choreographed) gun violence. This movie also boasts a great double eye-gouge scene. In this movie there is more internal conflict and dissension in the ranks. I won't tell you too much more about the story in hopes you all get to see it someday, but let me tell you this: the end will leave you screaming "More ! More ! "
