Director Kinji Fukasaku's cult 2000 film "Battle Royale" has been rereleased in 3D, with Anna Tsuchiya, 26, singing the theme song. Tsuchiya's song is titled "Checkmate mash up Anty the kunoichi Volta Masters," and was released on Nov 17.
Joined by one of the movie's stars, Taro Yamamoto, Tsuchiya appeared at a screening this week, wearing a black miniskirt resembling one of the junior high school students from the movie who get dragged into a survival game. "I think I've created a song that reflects the raw tension of the movie," she said.
When asked by a journalist what she would do in the event of a real face-off, she answered, "No one would shoot a girl as cute as me." Of her own high school days, she said, "I just hated it and would constantly think of ways to get out of going. Unfortunately, my mom was the chairwoman of the PTA, so I used to get busted immediately."© Japan Today
