How far will you go get your hands on a rare collectible figure? If you’re Yuji (Hideaki Ito), a young man who is obsessed with the “otaku” (sci-fi) subculture, nothing seems more important than the hundreds of plastic action figures he has collected over the years, still pristinely encased in the original blister packs. He may even love his collection more than his girlfriend, Mami (Masumi Sanada). When Yuji hears about a figure called the “Hellbanker,” the rarest plastic collectible figure in the world, he is determined to get his hands on it. But what happens when his search for this elusive collectible takes him deep into a mystery that defies time, space and even science fiction? “Blister” is a 1999 Japanese film directed by Taikan Suga.
