I remember renting this one anime...don't know the name. The main character was a bit of a generic anime type; red hair, attitude, and always looking for trouble. The co-star, however was different. The co-star is a crossdresser with expertise in the martial arts...I'm not thrilled about having a crossdresser as an important role, but it was still a cool movie. It had action and comedy. I remember there was some big muscular guy that helped them out, too (though that kind of info isn't very helpful). I think the villain in the movie was elderly, but he could still kick your butt. The ending fight scene between the good guy (who always fights with his fists) and the bad guy ended when the main character caught the blade of the villain's sword and broke it...actually, he might have gotten stabbed and the blade broke off when he tried to twist it to inflict more damage..I'm not sure, but anyway, the sword broke. The hero took the broken off end of the blade and stabbed the bad guy.
I really hope someone knows what movie I'm talking about. I vaguely remember the last scene. They were in a subway waiting for a bus and the transfestite took the main character's hat, wore it, and struck a pose. He asked "how do I look?" to which I believe the main character replied "umm...great!" There are only two other scenes I remember. One took place outside a church, and a priest was talking about Jesus...that's about all I remember about that part, and the other was when the main character met the transfestite. He was checking "her" out until he told him he was a man. He freaked out and shouted "You're a dude?!"
Does anybody know this movie? I saw it when I was ten or eleven years old, so I don't remember it well. I found it at a Blockbuster, but they don't have it there anymore. I don't go there anymore either.
