Earlier this week Platinum Dunes, unhappy with the negative coverage their line of slasher remakes received on this site, bought the rights to Retro Slashers. The new owners have one simple rule: NO MORE SLASHER COVERAGE OF ANY KIND. So it is with great sadness that we must report Retro Slashers is no more. But we are proud to announce the birth of our new website Retro Mini Moni and we hope our loyal readers will continue to visit this new site. Sometimes change can be a sad thing but we are really excited about the new direction the site is taking. Oh, if you could only see our faces you’d know just how excited we really are.
Future posts will include performances by Mini Moni on Music Station (Mini Moni Telephone Rin Rin Rin) and Hello! Morning (Jankenpon). We will also post the entire infamous episode of Do You Want To Get Some FUN Tonight featuring Ai Kago and Tsuji Nozomi’s profanity laced outburst directed at one of the hosts. Special thanks to Mr. Michael Bay for finding and sending us the rare footage. The newest member of the Retro Mini Moni crew, Tokyo Vice author Jake Adelstein, is working on a series of articles describing Mini Moni’s cultural impact on Japanese fashion and Tokyo Go-Go Clubs. And there are many more exciting posts and interviews for all of you Mini Moni otaku in the very near future.
If you would like to get in touch with any of the Mini Moni ladies you can do so by clicking on the following links. Just be sure to tell them Retro Mini Moni sent you. We haven’t been able to track down Mika Todd so if any of you Retro Mini Moni fans know where she is or how to get in touch with her please drop us a line and let us know.
