Hana to Hebi 3 Meets the Press Aug. 4
The date draws near for the release of Hana to Hebi 3, aka Flower and Snake 3. I'm not sure where I'll be on Aug. 28, but I suppose quite a few bondage fans will be sitting in a theater someplace watching Komukai Minako get herself all tied up in the latest homage to the novel Dan Oniroku wrote nearly 50 years ago.
Before that, though, on Aug. 4 at Shibuya Duo Music Exchange, Komukai will appear along with Arisue Go, who once again tied the ropes for the movie, for a media event. Things will kick off at 18:30 and it appears that Arisue will show a bit of his rope technique on the lovely and busty Komukai.
A photo book is supposed to have been released on July 1 and it looks like they'll be coming out with one of those "teaser" DVDs like they did for the 2004 version of Hana to Hebi which starred Sugimoto Aya. The DVD looks like it's about 45 minutes long. Make sure you don't confuse it with the DVD of the actual movie when that eventually comes out.
We now have a website for the movie. Interestingly, it's being hosted by DMM, a company I've written about in the past, which may have the distinction of being the largest provider of AV in Japan.
Here's the direct link to a short video of Arisue Go demonstrating his shibari technique.
