Storyline

Inuyashiki Ichirou is down on his luck. While only 58 years old, his geriatric looks often have him written off as a pathetic old man by the world around him and he's constantly ignored and disrespected by his family despite all that he's done to support them. On top of everything else, his doctor has revealed that he has cancer and it appears that he has little time left in this world. But just when it seems things couldn't get any worse, a blinding light in the night sky strikes the earth where Ichirou stands. He later wakes up to find himself unscathed, but he soon starts to notice that there's something... different about himself. However, it turns out that these strange, new changes are just what Ichirou needs to take a new lease on life and now it seems like there's nothing to stop him from being a hero worthy of the respect that he never had before... unless, that is, there was someone else out there with these same changes...

Bang Bang Manga movies are Saved
5 December 2018 | by kambomateoSee all my reviews

Finally a Manga movie done right. The build up of the characters is done right. The plot is meaningful and shows the two sides of the coin of having powers. Inu not the usual Hero u see in every movie and Hiro(ironically) the guy who choose the wrong path. Hoping to see more in the upcoming sequel. Kinda sad about not seeing the Yakuza "arch" hoping to see it in the upcoimng movie. There is yet to come. For every fan of manga out there you must check this out. And for the fans of Hero genre this is a must see so you can make the difference of the usual movies you have seen also when people die there is blod.
