Plot Synopsis:

There are controversial movies, and then there's LOVE HUNTER. You may not have heard of it, but it was a cause célèbre upon its release in Japan in early 1972 and remains an important film there for several reasons. The Impulse Pictures release is the first-ever official release of LOVE HUNTER in North America and the first time it's been made available on Blu-ray anywhere in the world!

Twenty-year-old Kazuo is in love with his college girlfriend, Hisako, but he can't help but be intrigued by a mysterious older woman named Kyoku, a promiscuous woman unsatisfied with her marriage. As time goes on, both Kazuo and Hisako are pulled into the seemingly rules free, borderless world of Kyoku – with all of its many pains and pleasures.

LOVE HUNTER is a landmark film in Nikkatsu's history. Not only is it one of their earliest "Roman Porno" erotic productions, but it was so controversial for the time that director Yamaguchi and some executives of Nikkatsu Films were arrested. Employees of Eirin, the Japanese equivalent of the MPAA, were even indicted for allowing the release of this film! It took eight long years for all to be acquitted of the obscenity charges. Nikkatsu Films provided Impulse Pictures with a brand-new high-definition master of this unexpected and seductive classic.
