world has fallen into zones, each controlled by different political
factions, the Just [a peace-loving, but technologically inferior group]
and the Crazy Dogs [a wild, power-hungry warring faction]. The bad guys
are led by Crazy Jo (Mitsugi Koga), a brute who simply wants to destroy
the weaker civilization. The secret protector of the "hippies"
is Kurisu [Chris] Saotime, an extreme fighter known as the Iron Girl
played Kiara Asuka. She is strong, heroic but cursed by amnesia.
loosely the same setting as the first film. Japan (perhaps the world,
as well) has imploded into a country of fiefdoms controlled by bounty
hunters and bandits. Chris Saotime, the heroic Iron Girl, is one of
the legendary bounty hunters. She's attempting to raise enough reward
money to buy a device that will restore her memory. Her conquests eventually
put Chris at odds against the evil Sparti gang and its leader, Poison
(effectively played by Asumi).

final entry in the Iron Girl trilogy finds Chris Saotime still looking
for [and ultimately finding] a key to her lost memory. Essentially,
it has to do with a friend and potential rival named Sara (Saki Akai).
Popular genre starlet Asami returns as adversary Poison, the Sparti
leader. The action boils to the top in an impressive three-way battle
between the machines, the military, and humans... resulting in a memorable
close to the trilogy.
Kenichi Fujiwara takes over the series with the second film and his expertise
is obvious from the opening shots. He understands action cinema and manages
to get the most from the genre. He has also spent a decade working with
his star Kirara Asuka, since the 2011 Sasori (Scorpion)
TV series Female Prisoner No. 701. Before that union, Mr
Fujiwara helmed the popular genre pics HITWOMAN
IN CHAINS and
ZERO WOMAN R.
