A Kiss From Tokyo

Imagine Genndy Tartakovsky directing a mix of Danger: Diabolik and You Only Live Twice.

Imagine Genndy Tartakovsky directing a mix of Danger: Diabolik and You Only Live Twice, and you might come up with something close to this trailer for A Kiss From Tokyo – which is actually a promo for Seductive Espionage, The World of Yuki 7, an artbook chronicling the adventures of “swinging 60’s spy girl, Yuki 7”.

I’m a sucker for vintage and exotic spy cinema, so not surprisingly, I love how the trailer pays homage to that particular genre, from the grainy look and transitions to the background projected car chase and the John Barry-inspired soundtrack. I know Yuki 7 only exists within the pages of Seductive Espionage, The World of Yuki 7, but I wouldn’t mind seeing a full-length feature chronicling her adventures.
