Based on the blockbuster manga “Funohan” by Arata Miyatsuki (story) and Yuya Kanzaki (artwork) serialised in “Grand Jump Magazine”, this live-action film adaptation is directed by Koji Shiraishi of “A Record of Sweet Murder” and “Sadako vs. Kayako.”
What is a "Funohan”? A premeditated criminal act leaving no physical proof — such as a murder in which the victim appears to be “cursed” or “brainwashed.” In such cases, the act goes unpunished, even if the victim actually dies.
The battle between a beautiful detective and a mysterious assassin, between hope and despair, light and dark, good and evil, begins now!
