Revisited S & M Hunter last night by way of the Pink Eiga disc, great movie. Just kinky, wacky, funny and awesome in every way it should be. Hadn't seen it in a few years and had forgotten how much screwy fun it is.

I know there are a few other films in the series but haven't been able to find much in the way of English language info on them.

The IMDB lists:

S&M Hunter: Wife to Be Molested

S&M Hunter: Office Lady Kidnapping

S&M Hunter Begins

S&M Hunter Chronicle: The Legend of Yakuza

Has anyone seen any of these? Are they in the same vein as the one that Pink Eiga put out on DVD (the 2nd pressing of which features cool art from Mr. Bougie)?

OK, some fairly convoluted but helpful information archived here (http://s8.invisionfree.com/MHVF/ar/t10073.htm).

Apparantly Nikkatsu owns the other films (Impulse... help us!) and they got VHS releases in Japan but there's no mention of any DVD releases (though that thread is old).

Dig the VHS cover art!

And a trailer for the Pink Eiga release for those not already convinced that this movie is FUCKING AWESOME.

The first one was a lot of fun.

Haha I thought for a second before I scrolled down that you were gonna do a "now look how BAD the dvd cover art is!" and show my cover, ala the "ugly dvd cover art" thread. PHEW!

And no, I haven't seen any of the sequels, sadly. Would love to, though.

Pink Eiga released a pretty good selection of films when they started, including that S&M film. I had hoped that they would continue releasing a mixture of the old & the new. I haven't cared for their last I-don't-know-how-many titles, so I stopped paying attention to them. I think the 1st Japanese Wife Next Door was the last one I liked.
Anyway, it would be nice if someone released the rest of the films in the S&M series--I'd buy them!

It would appear that Pink Eiga are prepping a release of S&M Hunter Begins (finally!).

If you go to their NSFW Tumblr page (http://pinkeiga.tumblr.com/post/28852482394/coming-soon-s-m-hunter-begins) you can check out a promo video for it. No release date or details yet but hopefully it's coming sooner rather than later.

OK, they got back to me quickly:

"S&M Hunter Begins is coming out on Sep 27th. For now it's only a digital release."

That looks like fun, I bought the first film when Pink Eiga first put it out but still haven't watched it!

You need to correct that asap, cause it's fucking awesome.
