Eureka to release another Sonny Chiba double-hitter: Bodyguard Kiba 1 and 2

Written by Richard Durrance on 07 Dec 2023



Yes, folks, Eureka are keeping rolling with their Sonny Chiba releases, announcing for March 2024 the release of Bodyguard Kiba 1 and 2.

By now I think we know we're in for just in lovely new HD restorations but in case not, read on (courtesy of Eureka):

Based upon the manga by celebrated writer Ikki Kajiwara, Bodyguard Kiba follows the eponymous karate master and professional bodyguard (Chiba) as he is hired to protect the mysterious Reiko (Mari Atsumi), a woman embroiled in the world of organised crime. Kiba’s involvement with Reiko brings him into conflict with the yakuza, leading to a final bloody showdown.

Then, in Bodyguard Kiba 2, Kiba is released from prison after taking revenge on the rival martial artists who blinded his sister Maki (Etsuko Shihomi). Back on the streets, he takes a job working for shady nightclub owner Akamatsu (Shoki Fukae), once again forcing him to take on Japan’s criminal underworld.

Want to see what you might be getting, well, Eureka have once again given us a brand spanking new trailer:

As always, recommended to buy directly from Eureka, they always arrive a good week early.
