Hollywood has long realized that beautiful women carrying heavy armaments works well on the silver screen.
It even works well in real life. I remember back in early college days, when a friend from high school confided that his mother had returned home after a long absence. She had been belly-dancing in Idaho for a number of years, and indeed, her and her family quickly assembled a belly-dancing floor show that I witnessed at an Albuquerque cafe. Afterwards, we all went to a party where people were freely passing around machine guns (parties in the ABQ can be a bit different than in California), and she posed with heavy armaments in her belly dancing costume. Quite compelling!
But people have always got to press for more, more, more! These Japanese folks have completely 'jumped the shark' with the idea.
