  • Before making a single edit, Tropedia EXPECTS our site policy and manual of style to be followed. Failure to do so may result in deletion of contributions and blocks of users who refuse to learn to do so. Our policies can be reviewed here.
  • All images MUST now have proper attribution, those who neglect to assign at least the "fair use" licensing to an image may have it deleted. All new pages should use the preloadable templates feature on the edit page to add the appropriate basic page markup. Pages that don't do this will be subject to deletion, with or without explanation.
  • All new trope pages will be made with the "Trope Workshop" found on the "Troper Tools" menu and worked on until they have at least three examples. The Trope workshop specific templates can then be removed and it will be regarded as a regular trope page after being moved to the Main namespace. THIS SHOULD BE WORKING NOW, REPORT ANY ISSUES TO Janna2000, SelfCloak or RRabbit42. DON'T MAKE PAGES MANUALLY UNLESS A TEMPLATE IS BROKEN, AND REPORT IT THAT IS THE CASE. PAGES WILL BE DELETED OTHERWISE IF THEY ARE MISSING BASIC MARKUP.

File:Tokyo gore police mb09.jpg

The use of the word "gore" in the title is very, very appropriate.

In 2008, Yoshihiro Nishimura, fast making a name for himself amidst those the likes of Noboru Iguchi, Shinya Tsukamoto, Takashi Miike and Yudai Yamaguchi (and like them, probably more so abroad in the west than in Japan itself), decided to break ahead from being a mere artist of gore effects and take the reins of a film all of his own.

Tokyo Gore Police (東京残酷警察 Tōkyō Zankoku Keisatsu) was the result.

It is Twenty Minutes Into the Future. Tokyo has became a cyberpunk dystopia with a privatized police force, where blades for cutting one's wrists are advertised on television and civilians can partake in the execution of prisoners via remote control from their homes. Going around murdering prostitutes is a mad scientist called "Key Man", who has created a race of mutants called "Engineers" whose injuries immediately transform into biomechanical weapons. By resurrecting those he murders as Engineers, Key Man is amassing himself a small army. The police officers are finding themselves hard pressed to deal with Key Man and his mutants.

One such police officer is Dark Action Girl Ruka, whose habits regarding her wrists would put Ebony Dark'ness Dementia Raven Way to shame. Ruka has been such a soul since her father was assassinated on the day the police were privatized many years ago. She now seeks to find her father's killer so that she might avenge him.

What ensues is almost two hours-worth of decapitations, dismemberments, disembowelments, katana, chainsaw duels, penises that double as guns, vagina monsters that eat people, breasts that squirt acid and people propelling themselves into the air with gouts of blood among other things. And then, Ruka discovers that the one who murdered her father is the Key Man's father... Let us just say that the use of the word "gore" in the title is very, very appropriate.
