Dear all,
I'll take advantage of Marco's post to introduce myself, give a  
couple of titles and ask a question to you all. My name is Laura  
Treglia and I am a PhD student at SOAS (London). My project focuses  
on female outlaws in yakuza eiga (e.g. Hibotan Bakuto and Gokudō no  
Onnatachi) and Tōei so-called 'pinky violence' films.

@Marco: Isolde Standish's "Myth and masculinity in Japanese cinema:  
towards a political reading of the 'tragic hero' "
                  Marc Schilling's "Yakuza movie book, a guide to  
Japanese gangster films
                  Chris Desjardins' "Outlaw masters of Japanese cinema"

are a must have.
There's also an article by MR Novielli in Asiatica Venetiana entitled  
"Le stagioni dell'eroe. Un culto in divenire tra jidaigeki, chanbara  
e yakuza eiga".
These are the very first that popped into my mind, but you'll see  
there has been written a lot on the topic. Hope this helps for now.

I would also like to ask a question about where could I find audience  
data about 'pinky violence' films reception in 1970s Japan, or  
Japanese cinema journals that may have treated the topic/reviewed  
some films
(e.g. Yōen Dokufu Den series, Yasagure Anego Den, Furyō Anego Den,  

Thanks very much in advance

All the best
