The burned remains of a young woman discovered in Shinjuku, Tokyo. The police comes to the conclusion that its the work of a pyromaniacal serial murderer. The murder victim is identified as Mayumi Tamaki, a native of Ishigaki, Okinawa. As the investigation unfolded, her former boyfriend, a former rider of a motorcycle named Chōei Mikawa emerged as a suspect. But Kano did not agree Mikawa is the suspect. Kano started conducting the investigation himself to search the real criminal person.

Sonnys' on top form in this very ace and very 70s cop flick from Kinji Fukasaku. Chiba stars as the country bumpkin detective bought to Tokyo to solve the case of a 'dead' girl who may or may not be a rising young singer.

The plot and characters are by the book, but since this is a Sonny Chiba film that doesn't matter.

There are several outstanding action set pieces which are frankly superb, while Chiba may lack the elegance of more traditional martial arts stars but he more than makes up for it with sheer power.

Fukasakus' verite style captures a sleazy side of Tokyo wonderfully, yakuza, psycho cops, bikers, strippers and pimps populate the film and the strong cast give excellent performances.

There is a scene in 'Doberman Deka' where Sonny practically gets raped by a stripper after giving her his pig, and if you can't appreciate that then you have forgotten what cinema is all about!
