YesAsia Editorial Description

Play wild, learn hard!

The first feature from comedian-turned-director Shinagawa Hiroshi, Drop writes the rites of youth in fistfights and turf wars. Based on a best-selling manga about Shinagawa's own experiences as a youth, the rough-and-tumble feature follows the Crows Zero and Gokusen formula of hot young stars and bloody rumbles. Narimiya Hiroki (NANA) leads the cast as a hot-blooded delinquent-wannabe who drops out of ordinary student life to seek trouble and excitement, while Mizushima Hiro (Mei-chan no Shitsuji) plays against type as the hardened gang leader. Prolific character actor Namioka Kazuki (Hero) and comedians Ayabe Yuji and Wakatsuki Toru finish the gang of wayward youth. Drop also co-stars actress Motokariya Yuika (Dear Friends) and Nakagoshi Noriko (Strawberry Shorcakes), popular singer-actor Kamiji Yusuke, and acclaimed actors Aikawa Sho and Endo Kenichi.

Hoping to live out his comic book dreams, private school innocent Hiroshi (Narimiya Hiroki) dyes his hair red and transfers to a tough public school. Begging for a fight, Hiroshi is quickly beaten up by the school's fair-featured, hard-hitting gang leader Tatsuya (Mizushima Hiro), but his persistence earns him entry into Tatsuya's crew. Along with Moriki (Namioka Kazuki), Wanko (Wakazuki Tetsu), and Lupin (Ayabe Yuji), Hiroshi and Tatsuya unapologetically pass their school days from one scuffle to another, and occasionally find time for romance. But can brawls and brotherhood save them from the harsh reality of growing up?

Juvenile delinquents will always be juvenile delinquents
While the men of Crows Zero spend their days skipping classes and worrying about fighting their way to the top of the school hierarchy, comedian Shinagawa Hiroshi shows you that real juvenile delinquents aren't really that tough in Drop. Loosely based on Shinagawa's own experiences during his teenage days, Shinagawa's directorial debut offers a surprisingly light, down-to-earth take on youth violence.


Doubling as Shinagawa himself is Hiroshi (Narimiya Hiroki), a private school student who dyes his hair red and transfers to a public school in order to fulfill his dream of becoming a juvenile delinquent. After joining a group of student thugs led by Tatsuya (Mizushima Hiro), Hiroshi discovers that his new friends are actually the only delinquents in the entire school. Instead of doing any real studying, the boys spend their days picking fights with delinquents from other schools and even biker gangs.


Despite its autobiographical roots, Drop remains a fantasy at heart, conveniently ignoring reality when it is a distraction from Shinagawa's story of friendship and street brawling. Shinagawa stages very brutal fights throughout the film (including a particularly messy one in a restaurant), but no one ever seems to require hospitalization or spend any time under police custody. Family members are also given only minimum consideration, as Hiroshi's family members all seem to react nonchalantly to Hiroshi's violent way of life.


On the other hand, Drop is also a hugely successful comic book film because of that distance from reality. Shinagawa uses actual frames of his manga series (which was in turn based on his original novel) as transition between scenes, constantly reminding the audiences that they're watching a comic book story rather than real life. Even though the violence onscreen appears serious (baseball bats and punches to the face are often shown), the film maintains a light tone throughout as seriously violent feuds lead to lasting friendships.


While Drop appears to be just another youth violence action film with lots of posing and punches being thrown, Shinagawa knows that it would only work if he tells the story with a heart. After the violence-filled first half to hook the audience, Shinagawa slowly shifts his storytelling emphasis to the comedic and the coming-of-age aspects in the second half. As its characters beat each other senselessly in the name of loyalty, they also come to learn about facing challenges head-on and treasuring the important things in life. The lessons may not always be clear, but at least Drop never feels less than sincere about telling an entertaining story that is also emotionally involving.


Most importantly, Drop is effective because it is a variation of Shinagawa's story. This being the third telling of his life as a juvenile delinquent, Shinagawa doesn't have to look too far to find an angle that works for the audiences. He would be equally successful in his second directorial effort Slapstick Brothers, which combines the art of Japanese stand-up comedy and street violence for an equally entertaining mix. Shinagawa doesn't try to branch out beyond what he knows, instead making solid films within the genres he's used to working in. This approach may not elevate Shinagawa to becoming an internationally renowned cinematic artist, but it will likely guarantee him a long, prosperous career as a commercial director for years to come.

People DO die that easily! Customer Review Rated Bad 8 - 8 out of 10
Warning: This is a VERY violent movie. It is not a teenage flick with the occasional fisty-cuff ragtag fight. We are talking about an almost constant stream of fights involving baseball bats, metal bars, wooden poles, the occasional 'decorative' sword, and even a 'hot' car!

Despite gang-leader Tatsuya's frequent catch-phrase “people don't die that easily” I have to strongly disagree. If any of the actors were subjected to the blows they receive in Drop they would be dead (several times over!) Yet apparently one bandaid to the face & perhaps a bruise at the corner of the mouth the next day accounts for everything!?

Despite its violent nature it's essentially a story of self-discovery and the transition to adulthood. And while I would hesitate to call Drop an outright comedy it certainly does have comedic elements.

Watching the preview for Drop I couldn't help laughing at the absurdity of Mizushima Hiro as a tough gang leader but surprisingly he does pull it off quite credibly. Although I never understood his motivation to fight he still felt like a real person, not the 2-D cardboard cut-out I was expecting.

I admit the reason I bought Drop was because it stars Narimiya Hiroki (the guy has talent & once again he brings it to the fore). Hiroshi is immediately likeable as a sissy high school guy who wants to join a gang before becoming a serious adult. His attempts to talk his way out of the many fights being in a gang inevitably entails are both amusing and endearing.

Being a coming of age film Drop does inevitably take a more serious turn towards the end. Hiroki once again pulls through and shows just what acting material he's made of (if you don't want to cry in public watch the end alone).

I haven't read the manga but I was impressed by the clever way it’s been integrated into the film. Images from the manga are shown as stills which then come to life in real action, & vice-versa.

The plot wanders aimlessly for a while in the middle (likely the result of being based on a manga) but it comes together in the end. So in summary, would I watch it again: at the Drop of a (pink) helmet!

Now for the technicalities of this version:

English Subtitles: Excellent – The subtitles are clear, easily readable and grammatically correct. I noticed no mistakes.
Picture Quality: Excellent – Crisp picture quality clearly showing every graphic detail.
Sound Quality: Excellent – I noticed nothing wrong with the sound quality.
Special Features: This version has no special features. At all.
