The official website for the forthcoming live-action film adaptation of Shin Sawada (story) and Renji Asai’s (arts) action comedy manga Violence Action has posted a main visual and a 60-second full trailer featuring the theme song “Clash” by four-member Japanese rock band [Alexandros].


The Kanna Hashimoto (Kagura in Gintama, Kaguya Shinomiya in Kaguya-sama: Love Is War)-starring film is set to be released in Japan on August 19, 2022. The shooting was already wrapped up in February 2021. The film is the first Japanese film to use the cutting-edge “volumetric capture technology” developed by the Sony Group. By converting the cast members shot by dozens of surrounding cameras into 3D digital data, it realizes inexhaustible camera work and creates powerful action scenes.

Main visual wit the tagline: “This assassin is a part timer, but she is super invincible.” 





The original manga has been serialized on Shogakukan’s Yawaraka Spirits website since April 2016 and has released six tankobon volumes so far. Over 500,000 copies of the tankobon books have been printed, while online access has exceeded ten million PVs.


Its story centers on the protagonist with a short pink bob, Kei Kikuno, who is working hard at a part-time job while attending a vocational school in order to obtain her Level 2 Nissho Bookkeeping Certificate. Her part-time job is as an assassin by appointment only, and Kei is a very skilled assassin who boasts the highest appointment rate. She is unafraid to kill her target, no matter who it is. And one day, she receives the worst request in her career…
