Product Overview

Momoko yearns to live in 18th century Versailles, rather than in her back-country hometown of Shimotsuma. To escape, she loses herself in the dreamy, doll-like fasions of the "Lolita" scene. Her idol is Akinori Isobe, chief designer of Baby, the Stars Shine Bright - her favorite design house - and she frequently travels all the way to Tokyo to shop at the store.

One languid summer, to help fund her expensive hobby, Momoko runs a classified ad offering brand-name knock-off clothes for sale. She encounters a buyer named Ichigo, who happens to live in her neighborbood.

Super-rebel Ichigo is a "Yanki"-style member of the Ponytails motorbike gang, one of Ibaraki's Wild Speed Tribes, whose teeth-rattling customized bikes are decked out with fiberglass shields and bannered backrests.

Somewhat against Momoko's will, she and Ichigo slowly develop a strong friendship as they share their feelings on the odd going-ons around them.

Reviews
ReviewSource Los Angeles Times
Review As exciting for its beautifully specific and honest portrayal of teenage girls and their friendships as it is for its dazzling visual and narrative style, Kamikaze Girls is a glorious blend of kitsch, grit, humor and uplift that borrows freely from various Japanese subcultures and films such as The Outsiders and Kill Bill to tell the picaresque story of an emotionally repressed teenager with an active fantasy life who learns to open herself up to friendship.
