Ichiro is no longer in the prime of his life, and his everyday life is as drab as can be. To top it off, he’s just been diagnosed with cancer, so there’s nothing left for him to do except sit on a bench feeling sorry for himself. And that’s what he’s doing when some aliens appear above his head and turn him into a bionic man. The director of I am a Hero adapts Hiroya Oku’s manga, unleashing a cross between the world of superheroes and the world of Tetsuo.
Born in Hiroshima, he studied Art at Musashino University. His filmography includes hits like the two parts of Gantz (11), I am a Hero (16) and Death Note. Light up the New World (16).
