Trivia

This movie is based on a very popular manga in Japan. One of the possible reasons for its popularity might be that in Japan many children grow up being "fans" of insects in the same way that some kids are "fans" of dinosaurs. A lot of Japanese kids have a deep knowledge about different kinds of bugs. See more »

Its good I never read the manga
5 July 2018 | by fluffsetSee all my reviews

If you guys read all my reviews before regarding a japanese movie based on manga. I always make comparison & not happy with the adaptation (except one, Ore Monogatari). But this one, because I never read the original source, I guess its a good interesting sci-fi movie! About a group of human with added superpower versus humanoid super strength cockroaches! (Really?) . I think its really good, with all the cool suit. Fighting scene whatsoever. Its quite enjoyable. Its like watching an anime in live action version. Its so japanese like all japanese movie you ever watch. They have their own style, no one can copy them.
