Be a Man! Samurai School

A group of aspiring samurais learn that true honor doesn't come without great suffering - not to mention some good old fashioned humiliation - in actor-turned-director Tak Sakaguchi's adaptation of the Akira Miyashita's popular manga. Spineless Hidemaro isn't much of a man, so in order to gain some intestinal fortitude he enrolls in Otoko-juku. At Otoko-juku, students train to be samurais the old fashioned way - through sheer endurance. It certainly isn't a walk in the park, and precious few freshmen actually make the cut. Others, like Momo (Sakaguchi), seem to possess the strength and stamina of 10 men. Later, just as Hidemaro begins to get the hang of life at Otoko-juku, a ruthless former student returns to campus determined to overthrow the faculty, and impose his own brutal will on the current crop of pupils. With their backs against the wall, Hidemaro, his classmates, and their teachers prepare to take back the campus by force.
