Go Nagai's "LION-GIRL" is a new superhero for a new era. In the year 20XX, humanity has almost come to an end. A tsunami of meteors bombarded the entire planet. There were a very small number of survivors. They kill each other for more food, more power, causing 30 years of bloody civil war. The meteorites contain a mysterious ray inside the rock. If a human being is exposed to this ray, the cells in the body mutate and destroy themselves, causing certain death. But in very rare cases, some humans survive the exposure. Those who get exposed to the space ray and survive undergo a metamorphosis into horrific "meteorite beasts". People call them 'ANOROC'. ANOROC hunt and kill human beings for their lifeforce. ANOROC are the true enemy of humankind.
Now, the Earth has the last defender of humanity against ANOROC; her name is 'LION-GIRL', a superhero Yakuza fighter and a true pursuer of Ninkyo.

The Apocalypse meets Cosplay meets Anime meets Manga - something for everyone
—Lamar Joe, THE PERFECT T
Kurando brings a colorful comic book world to life with stunning makeup, silly but satisfying fights, and the hallmarks of old monster movies and manga mixed into live action
—Keri O'Shea, WARPED PERSPECTIVE
A modern exploitation film like no other, and featuring story and character design by legendary Manga artist, Go Nagai (Cutie Honey, Devilman, Mazinger Z), alongside glorious practical effects, gratuitous nudity, and an utterly unhinged story, Lion-Girl
Lion-Girl is based on characters created by Go-Nagai who also gave the world Devilman, Cutie Honey and Mazinger Z among others so you can expect something wild.
—Jim Morazzini, VOICES FROM THE BALCONY
Go Nagai's LION-GIRL' is a new superhero for a new era
—Editor, THE FILM CATALOGUE
A bonkers good time! The creative team must've had a hell of a fun time making LION-GIRL. Punk Rock filmmaking at its BEST
—Joey Paur, GEEK TYRANT
goofy, exaggerated, cheesy, gory, boob-filled - and it was a blast and great fun to watch!
—Caleb O, LETTERBOXD
a sci-fi, postapocalyptic, Blaxploitation-stained superhero fantasy that has a grindhouse feel that bubbles over into gonzo territory
—Editor, THE NEW YORK TIMES
