YesAsia Editorial Description

Zebraman is the latest film from cult favorite Miike Takashi (Audition, Dead or Alive, Ichi the Killer, Agitator, Happiness of the Katakuris). This time, it's the year 2010 in Yokohama, and something funny is going on. Animals are behaving oddly, and there are sightings of gigantic crab-like creatures throughout the city, but primary school teacher Ichikawa (V-cinema legend Aikawa Sho in the 100th film of his career) has too much on his mind to notice. His wife is stepping out on him, his daughter is a teenage prostitute, and his son is being bullied relentlessly at school. And on top of it all, Ichikawa is a lousy teacher and knows it. The only thing that gives him comfort is the fond memory of Zebraman, a superhero TV series broadcast in the 1970’s and cancelled after seven episodes due to dismal ratings. One night, after Ichikawa has donned his homemade zebra suit, he hears something outside and goes to investigate. Out in the street he encounters a suspicious character, and a fight breaks out. As it turns out, his opponent is an alien, and soon the place is swarming with them, all occupying the bodies of their human hosts in a diabolical bid to take over the world. Will Ichikawa fail as usual, or has the time come for him to stand up and fight?

Billed as Miike’s first family film, Zebraman is a funny, clever piece with its heart in the right place. With bits for the hardcore Miike fan as well as newbies, Zebraman is sure to please just about everybody.

Weirdly warped superhero comedy Customer Review Rated Bad 8 - 8 out of 10
"Zebraman" is billed as director Miike Takashi's first family film, but its introverted central character has a wife who is openly promiscuous, a teen daughter who sells her body, and a son who is repeatedly beaten by his classmates. Moreover, "Zebraman" includes stomach-churning scenes of alien violence. Hence, it definitely should not be deemed a family film. However, for a mature audience, "Zebraman" is an amusingly comic modern-day monster movie akin to "Big Man Japan".

Aikawa Sho stars as Ichikawa, a teacher disrespected by his students and disrespected at home. Seeking relief from the grim disappointment of his existence, Ichikawa loses himself in the world of a short-lived '70s era television series featuring a caped superhero called Zebraman. Ichikawa becomes so obsessed with the old show that he constructs for himself a replica of the Zebraman costume, dons it, and ventures out on the streets of Tokyo to right wrongs. At the same time, Tokyo's streets are being threatened by strange slime-like creatures which possess people with very strange effects. It doesn't take long before Ichikawa as Zebraman finds himself in the fight of his life against the green slime, as he attempts to save a wheelchair-bound boy he has befriended.

Aikawa Sho delivers the role of a lifetime as the failed teacher turned hapless hero. The special effects are suitably cheesy. The film's story seems almost as if Miike repeatedly boxes himself in and must reach for an ever-wilder flight of fantasy to keep the story rolling. Fortunately, Miike's audacity usually pays dividends in "Zebraman" and the film ends up being a surprisingly warm-hearted wonder.
