Sailor Suit and Machine Gun (セーラー服と機関銃 Sailor-fuku to kikanjū ?) is a Japanese novel by prolific author Jiro Akagawa. It was well-received and adapted into comedy/action film originally released in 1981. A satirical take on yakuza films, the storyline of the film involves a teenage delinquent schoolgirl named Izumi Hoshi who inherits her father's clan. The title is a reference to a scene where the main character shoots several rival gang members with a submachine gun, while wearing a sailor-fuku, a traditional Japanese school uniform. The film stars Japanese idol Hiroko Yakushimaru as the main character.

Sailor Suit and Machine Gun is relatively well-known in its home country, and spawned two television series based and expanding upon its story, one in 1982, and one in 2006. Outside of Japan, it is popular in some cult film circles, but has not garnered much mainstream attention. It has been released on Region 2 and Region 3 DVD, the latter being its first release that featured English subtitles.[1]
