Blaxploitation in Japan


Found this ill book on Ebay today. It’s a Japanese  Blaxploitation poster book from 2001 called Soul of Black Movie (I love a title peppered with a hint of Nippon style broken English).  It’s a little pricey for me and I wasn’t able to pull the trigger but it is a great cover and I’d love to have it in my collection. Given the Japanese  obssesive attention to detail, it’s sure to be Blaxploitation porn!  I may even learn to read Japanese because of it. Bonzai!

  1. Yo whats up cousin! Thanks for comin thru to the Hot Peas and Butta party last week, definitely good to meet a fellow collector. We gotta build in the future and compare some notes!


    • Yeah, dude. I had no idea it was that deep until I saw the blog pic but Im sure that just scratches the surface. Must build soon!


  2. This book came out 4 or 5 years in a row with starting in (I believe) 2000?? With different covers and some different content. I have like 3 or 4 of them and havent been able to track down the others yet. And there always expense. But definitely good for research.


    • Yes. Always will be an expense. I found one for 70 bucks so I may pull the trigger on that one. Can’t have enough! You know how that obsession goes!


  3. Yo B, drop me a line at my email so I can send you my digits and we can exchange notes!


  4. Hi, I’m researching about black representation in Japan and I’m interested in this book (series?) — do you have more information about this book, like publisher, exact year of publication, and the content (commentaries by Japanese authors)? Thanks much! =)

    • Dont have any additional info, Yayoi. It just came up in a search I did on Ebay. Skeme Richards (whose comments are above) has some copies. He may be able to help.
