R-Rated hero comedy movie Strega brings out the badass sidekick


Don't ask her about doing "Night Moves"

[Update: I added some images of Mai Miori's character courtesy of Garage Hero.]

2018 may be shaping up to be a good year for tokusatsu, but I'm still waiting for the one who may top them all. Nothing against the other shows, but Bueno and Garage Hero continue to bring us a great take on the genre as they hit us with a new trailer for their R-Rated Henshin Hero comedy movie, Strega.

This time, we're introduced to Sayuri/Virsago, the heroine who'll act as Soma's partner in the film. She is played by AV actress Mai Miori, who appeared in the 2018 Netflix film, The Outsider, as well.

Now that we got a better look at the secondary hero, I love how Miori's character gives off a serious tone that conflicts with Soma's goofy personality. This sort of combo tends to work well in titles themed around partners, which is another thing for me to look forward to when the film comes out. Just like its predecessor Gun Caliber, the movie will get the Web series treatment. One thing for sure, when I get to watch it, I'm certain it'll be one of my favorite things of the year.
