11. REINCARNATION OF GOLDEN LOTUS (1990)
Country: Hong Kong
Original Title: Poon Gam Lin Ji Chin Sai Gam Sang
Director: Clara Law Cheuk-Yiu
Cast: Joey Wong Cho-Yin, Eric Tsang Chi-Wai, Wilson Lam Chun-Yin, Tan
The first and better-known of the Clara Law/Lillian Lee collaborations
features the sensationally beautiful Joey Wong ("A Chinese Ghost Story" and
Jackie Chan's "City Hunter") as the fabled Golden Lotus character of Chinese
lore, murdered anciently and reincarnated in present day mainland China
where she soon grows into stunning young womanhood, only to begin
reverting to her fatefully slutty self.

worthy enough representative of "erotic anime" to be listed here. Each of the
six, 45-minute episodes center on the adventures of a "half-demon, ninja
sex-warrior" named Miko-Mido as she fights for the honor and survival of
her clan against the rival Suzuka clan and the perverted tentacular
freakazoids of the underworld known as the Shikima.
Over the course of the six episodes, Miko's adventures become increasingly
bizarre, evolving an assortment of psycho-sexual encounters and fantastical
confrontations the likes of which would be unthinkable from any culture
other than Japan. Whether this is indicative of unspeakable perversity or
unequaled creativity on the part of the Japanese is hard to tell. Either way, it
