Otaku vs Zombies! I Am a Hero, J-Horror with English Subs on HK DVD and BD!

Genre: Horror | Release Date: Feb 03, 2017

I Am Hero is an adaptation of the zombie manga of the same title by Kengo Hanazawa. It was directed by Shinsuke Sato, who is turning out to be quite a genre favorite. His live action adaptations of Gantz, Library WarsDeath Note: Light Up the New World and  the upcoming Bleach are some of the most anticipated genre pieces. Beside, of course, Takashi Miike’s Blade of The Immortal!
The story follows a 30-something, struggling manga artist who is thrown into the zombie apocalypse sporting a double-barreled shotgun. While keeping himself alife, he also happens to rescue others and teams up. And as is genre convention since Night of The Living Dead, once the group of survivors find shelter, human egoism becomes the biggest threat. Damn you, humanity, when will you ever learn?
Or as the synopsis on the cover says: “OTAKU HERO KILLS ZOMBIES, SAVES BEAUTIES!” Exactly! And by jolly is it gory! Although the movie boasts a respectable 126 minutes, it does not cover all of the manga's story and therefore a sequel is already in development. Hooray! Together with Train to Busan, this would make a splatterific double feature!
