Featured reviews for

Samurai Pudding
(overall rating: 3.3 out of 5 based on 2 reviews)
Japan Times, by MARK SCHILLING - 3/5 source:
«His new film, "Chonmage Purin" has plenty of strangeness in it, but of the sweetly whimsical, TV sitcom sort. ... The real home for "Chonmage Purin" is the small screen, where the scrumptious- looking desserts and the buff Nishikikido will naturally attract eyeballs.»
