Acclaimed writer-director Kudo Kankuro keeps things loony in his highly anticipated second directorial effort The Shonen Merikensack (a.k.a. Brass Knuckle Boys). Known for his comedic writing in films like Ping Pong, Maiko Haaan!!!, and his own debut feature Yaji & Kita: The Midnight Pilgrims, Kudo works his magic on this ragtag rock 'n' roll comedy about an aging punk band staging a mighty comeback. Popular actress Miyazaki Aoi (NANA) is perfectly at home in this fun music comedy packed with Kudo's usual off-the-wall humor. Acclaimed character actors Sato Koichi (The Magic Hour), Kimura Yuichi (The Witch of the West is Dead), Taguchi Tomorowo (Tetsuo), and Miyake Hiroki (Limit of Love: Umizaru) ham and jam away as the movie's eponymous rockers. Plus there are hilarious appearances by Sho Aikawa, Santamaria Yusuke, Tanabe Seiichi, and Pierre Taki.
A step away from losing her job, record company employee Kanna (Miyazaki Aoi) comes across an awesome punk rock band called Shonen Merikensack on the Internet, and sets out to sign them. With her job on the line, she discovers too late that the video she saw is actually an old clip from the 80s, and the members - bassist Akio (Sato Koichi), guitarist Haruo (Kimura Yuichi), drummer Young (Miyake Hiroki), and vocalist Jimmy (Taguchi Tomorow) - are now all down-on-luck middle-aged fogies. As buzz for the mystery band grows, Kanna's record company, still in the dark about the truth, decide to launch a concert tour for Shonen Merikensack, and they want Kanna to be the band's manager!
