Zeiram (1991)

Directed by Keita Amemiya, Zeiram follows two intergalatic bounty hunters named Iria (Yûko Moriyama) and Bob (Masakazu Handa) who accept a job to apprehend Zeiram (Mizuho Yoshida) on a planet known as Earth.

Upon arriving on Earth Iria and Bob set up an alternate dimension called a Zone to help combat and capture Zeiram. In order to do that they need to steal a large amount of electricity from the electric grid and soon company employees Kamiya (Yukijiro Hotaru) and Teppei (Kunihiro Ida) arrive to  investigate what is using so much power!

During their investigation Kamiya accidentally transports Teppei into the Zone. Which results in the pair soon meeting Iria who is not happy at their interference. Teppei finds Zeiram and gets chased by a monster that the creature summoned whilst Iria’s first attempt to capture Zeiram fails when she discovers he has a shield that makes him immune to bullet fire.

As a response to Zeiram’s immunity to bullets Iria decides to use her special combat suit. Bob’s protests to not fight him in close-range combat but Iria finally manages to capture Zeiram, Teppei comes across her. He asks her to free Kamiya, which she reluctantly agrees to. Zeiram causes a distraction while trapped, using one of his monsters to lure Iria back to Earth. The ensuing fight damages the teleportation unit. Teppei saves Kamiya from a sneak attack by the monster Zeiram summoned, but Kamiya accidentally shoots the lock to Zeiram’s prison, freeing the creature…
