Gantz, I Am a Hero, Death Note and Bleach are just some of the brilliant manga comics that Shinsuke Sato has successfully adapted for cinema: titles of deserved renown that, fortunately, made their way to the West and even got here. His latest challenge is Inuyashiki, a popular manga in which action and science fiction merge in an exhilaratingly insane manner. The protagonists couldn’t be more different: a dull, timid family man apparently defined by his submissiveness and a young student whose psychological equanimity is endangered by the odd event that brings them together; an encounter with a meteorite that gives them strange powers. Each will decide how best to use them and they’ll soon be locked in the confrontation of the year. Japanese cinema is known for making adrenaline-filled adventures that blow your mind but in this case the phrase couldn’t be more literal.
