THE DAILY YOMIURI reviews the new Miike Takashi film.
Zebraman is a project by Kudo and Miike designed to help seasoned actor Sho Aikawa celebrate his 100th lead role in a film. Kudo penned the original script, laden with his customary offbeat jokes, and Miike added much of the flair to mark the milestone.
This is the second Miike film in a row getting a big promotional push. Aikawa Sho was all over TV recently promoting it, as well as hosting some ZEBRAMAN specials. The film itself looks like a lot of fun.
