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...

Loved everything about it except...
28 July 2018 | by mrifqi-48551See all my reviews

Watched this yesterday, the movie plot is really good, both characters' backstory were built in such a short period of time but they are flawless, plot twist that makes you wonder where things are really headed are presented in such a nice way.

I loved everything about it until at the last scenes, "my loved one is gonna die-sudden power up" cliche really turned me down, just as the evil character one said during the showdown... I hate it so much when cliche like this happen, it ruins the whole character's progress...

Watch it if you like superhero story with good animation and plot, maybe skip it if you have watched way too many superhero movies... your choice
