Director Sato Shinsuke is someone you’ve probably been keeping your eye on for the new year if you have an eye for live-action manga adaptations. He’s got two rolling out this year and first on the menu is Inuyashiki based on Oku Hiroya’s 2014 publication.
It’s a damn good package too, ripe with the use of an unlikely hero pitted against formidable odds. Actors Kinashi Noritake and Satoh Takeru lead the way for a story telling of an old man forced to face a looming threat in the form of a vindictive high school student following an explosion that renders them with extraordinary abilities by way of bionic implants.
Late December saw a teaser and as of this week, the official trailer has arrived courtesy of Toho for an April 20 release. Peep it below in addition to the official poster!
