Attackers started as an independent ("indie") studio but is now one of the companies that make up the large AV group, the Hokuto Corporation, which distributes Attackers video products through their DMM website. The Attackers studio released its first four videos in February 1997 on the Shark label numbered SHK-001 to SHK-004. The studio usually releases a total of about 10-15 original and compilation videos per month and in mid-2009, the AV distributor DMM listed over 1200 Attackers titles in their catalog. The general manager of the company is Michio Maruyama (丸山道央).
The company specializes in videos portraying simulated rape, torture and bondage. The two main bondage genre labels are Jabaku (蛇縛) and Ryubaku (龍縛). The Jabaku series often stars well-known actresses and uses high production values and elaborate sets. The emphasis is on bondage and gagging with some light S&M. The Ryubaku label was introduced in 2000 as a softer version of the Jabaku line with more consensual action and fantasy role-playing.
The "Les Noir" series consisted of 5 original videos released from December 2005 to March 2007 on the Attackers Inmad label plus a compilation video from July 2007 on the Attackers Best label. All dealt with lesbian sadomasochism and bondage (BDSM) themes and all starred Sakura Sakurada as a dominant woman forcing young girls into lesbian acts. All five videos were directed by former AV actress Yui Koike (小池ゆい).
The "Slave Island" series began in December 2005 with the release of Slave Island (龍縛監禁凌辱スペシャル 奴隷島) on the Attackers Ryubaku label (RBD-045). The video, starring Syuri Himesaki, Ryoko Mizusaki & Kyōko Kazama, and directed by Kenzo Nagira, won the Attackers Award at the 2005 Moodyz Awards. A total of 12 original "Slave Island" videos were released between December 2005 and February 2008, all under the Attackers Ryubaku label. Two 8-hour compilation works were also released in October 2008 under the Attackers Best label. The plots involve girls being kidnapped by bogus recruiters and brought to an island where they are imprisoned and turned into sex slaves. The films depict a mixture of bondage, humiliation, simulated rape, forced fellatio and urination involving both lesbian and heterosexual sex.
Beginning in 2004, Attackers took part in the annual December Moodyz Awards. In 2004 and 2005 the studio presented separate awards to its own staff but from 2006 they have taken part in the general awards process with several other Hokuto Corporation companies.
Attackers was one of the studios participating in the 2008 AV Grand Prix with the video Female Ninja Torture Rape 3 (くノ一拷問凌辱3 椿姫・極秘輿入ノ章) [AVGL-002] starring Rin Aoki, Megu Ayase & Rin Hayakawa, and directed by Katsuyuki Hasegawa.
For the 2009 AV Grand Prix, the studio nominated the video Young Female Student Confinement Rape - Brute Gang Rape (女子高生監禁凌辱 鬼畜輪姦 レイプの傷痕) [AVGL-102] with Yuuka Kokoro, Mari Hida, Kasumi, Rin Agazuma & Hiyori Wakakusa, and directed by HiroA.
