Roujin Z (1991)

The Ministry of Public Welfare unveils a new high-tech bed that can take complete care of elderly patients and they get an oblivious Mr. Hasegawa to test it out. His nurse, Haruka, is extremely surprised but feels that an automated bed is not the best way to take care of him and so marches in to the grand public unveiling to make sure Hasegawa is okay.

7/10

This is a fun, agreeably over-the-top satire-cum-action mecha movie which is highly unusual through featuring a nurse’s professional relationship with her patient (and that’s not a euphemism). This is yet another Japanese animation where you can legitimately say that there’s nothing else quite like it.

This movie contains Unpleasant scenes, adult dialogue

Classified 15 by BBFC. Suitable only for persons of 15 years and over.
