ALL THINGS CRAPPY DRIFTING CLASSROOM MOVIE

Clay, gaijin abroad and Same Hat reader, has (perhaps unwittingly) become the internet's star expert on the laughably awful, ridiculous movie adaptation of Kazuo Umezu's Drifting Classroom.



A few weeks ago, Clayton did a video review of the late-80s, multilingual film adaptation of this infamous horror manga. The review is hilarious, and is only outdone but the utter SHITTINESS and CRAZINESS of this film:



You can also view the review directly on his site. Most recently, Clayton was somehow able to score an interview with one of the child stars of this film, Arthur Johnson, who talks about his experience as an African-American kid in Japan starring in a Umezu adapation. in the Eighties. that was in English. Stuff like this is the why internet is teh best!!

Thanks again for the links and patronage, Clayton!

Here are 10 minutes of selected shorts from the film:

verticalite: Better than this??

clayton: keep the good stuff coming our way, and we will happily post it here :)

anonymous: I wish that clay would have asked him about it. Did the production staff import a sambo doll specifically for the movie? wtf??

joey: the start of a new, underage, tunic-wearing world.

mark: i'm sorry for the temporary invocation of 733t. but you gotta speak the language of the people if you want to get your message across! we'll return to normally-scheduled grammar laws in coming posts.

-thanks all!

Hang on, you're mocking the CRAZINESS of the film?

The original manga isn't a paragon of sanity and understatement, either. It's ALL CAPS ALL THE TIME!!!
