who knocks off the knock offs?

Pop quiz, hotshot!

Your rival movie studio has just released a movie called Yo-Yo Girl Cop, licensed from a 30 year old manga. From the buzz it looks like their movie's gonna make a mint, so what can you possibly do to trump them??

The answer is that you smirk, crack your knuckles, and spend a weekend making Yo-Yo Sexy Girl Cop.

Check, and mate.

Can you spot the differences between these two cover images?

(before anyone starts getting SUPER TECHNICAL on me, I'll clarify that, since both movies were made in Japan, they originally had different titles. The comparison still stands, though, because the Japanese name of Yo-Yo Girl Cop is Sukeban Deka (Delinquent Girl Detective): Code Name Asamiya Saki, and the Japanese name of Yo-Yo Sexy Girl Cop is Sukepan Deka (See-through Panties Detective): Virgin Name Moromie Saki.)

(Also, yes, I realize this sort of thing has been going on for decades in the US porn industry, I just think that this example is particularly hilarious.)
