Defying all prototypes of Marvel or DC superheroes, Inuyashiki is the true one who can save the world! A middle-aged wimpy salaryman, transformed by a mysterious light into a cyborg with incredible powers, becomes a selfless hero fighting against a cold-eyed teenager who devolves into a super killer terrorizing the nation. Sato Shinsuke’s turbo-charged, hyped screen adaptation of Oku Hiroya’s hit comic after Gantz , converting Shinjuku into an urban landscape of scifi fantasy. An anti-ageist thrust that balances thrilling action and apt social observations, and unexpectedly heartwarming.
