Director: Takashi Miike Writer: Kankuro Kudo Stars: Sho Aikawa, Kaoki Yasukochi, Kyoka Suzuki, Atsuro Watabe, Yui Ichikawa, Koen Kondo Shinichi Ichikawa (Sho Aikawa) is a complete failure in his roles as a 3rd-grade teacher and family man. He fetishizes a superhero character from an old, short-lived TV series, spending his evenings dressed as Zebraman in a suit of his own construction, striking poses. The arrival of a new student (Naoki Yasukochi) and a wave of bizarre events lead him to discover the power within. This is not one of director Takashi Miike's ultraviolent films. Instead, he has made a very bizarre comedy that is mostly family-friendly, always compelling, and often extremely funny. The script gets a bit sloppy at times in order to place characters where the filmmakers want them, but all of that is trumped by sheer goofy charm.
