Saki (Yoko Minamino) has long quit her job as Sukeban Deka (= yo-yo armed undercover cop posing as a highschool student), but then she learns about a school on a secret island where principal Hattori (Masato Ibu) trains his students to be the perfect, sheep-like soldiers for his coup d'etat, and when she sees one of the deserters from this school (Shinobu Sakagami) shot before her very eyes, she knows she has to do something about it ... so she gathers a few girls - her successor as Sukeban Deka Yui (Yui Asaka), her friends Okyo (Haruko Sagara) and Yukino (Akie Yoshizawa), and Megumi (Ayako Kobayashi), the sister of one of the students at the school -, gets a special all-powerful yo-yo from the Sukeban Deka organisation, and off she and her friends are to the island school.

Once ther, everything goes a bit too easily for our five heroines, and eventually they have to notice they have walked into a trap, a trap Hattori could send up because the girls had been betrayed by one of them, Megumi, whom Hattori promised the return of her brother (Tetta Sugimoto) in return. Only when Megumi finds her brother a lobotomized idiot does she realizes what she has done, and she frees her friends and helps them free the students and blow up the school, even if it costs her own life. And in the finale, Saki fights Hattori, and finds out he's a robot - but using her special yo-yo that almost crushes her own shoulder due to the impact, she ultimately manages to electrocute him.

With Hattori out of the way, there is no reason why this movie wouldn't have a happy ending (and it has, too).


Above all else, this film is fun in a campy way, and though the film takes itself pretty seriously, I advice you, the viewer, not to - after all, this is a film about five girls in schoolgirl uniforms armed with yo-yos attacking a paramilitary camp. If you can se this movie's humourous side though, you'll be richly rewarded by some crazy action that might make little sense but is great fun nevertheless.
