BOOM! And I’m back. I humbly believe that there is no better person to introduce JFF 2016’s action-packed titles than your resident Sion Sono fan, Saiko. Regrettably, there is no Sion Sono presence this year but there are a number of beloved directors from the slasher genre fame.

All cities will get a dose of the mischievous Koro-sensei in Assassination Classroom -Graduation-.
Brisbane, Perth, Sydney and Melbourne
Fans in Brisbane, Perth, Sydney and Melbourne, you’ll get a good dose of action and comedy with crime-fighting perv (I fail to understand how that makes sense) Hentai Kamen back on duty in HK2: The Abnormal Crisis.
You’ll also meet the legendary ninja and samurai warriors, the Sanada Ten Braves.
Takashi Miike does it again with a beautiful, hauntingly alien and appropriately cockroachy rendition of the manga TERRAFORMARS.
And last but not the least, the surprisingly dark and intense film adaptation of The Top Secret: Murder in Mind will be showing in Brisbane, Perth, Sydney and Melbourne. Directed by the man responsible for the Rurouni Kenshin Trilogy, Keishi Otomo, with a refreshing script co-written by Korean scriptwriters Kim Sun-Mee and Lee Sork-Jun.
