Sato Shinshuke's I AM A HERO Lands A U.S. Blu-Ray Combo Pack In July From Funimation
This summer will be a fantastic one for fans of director Sato Shinsuke. The director of Inuyashiki and upcoming Bleach will have some stateside traction with the Blu-Ray package release of I Am A Hero, based on Hanazawa Kengo's 2009 serial manga and which earned wide acclaim since premiering at Sitges in 2015 before its Japan release the following year.
Based on the celebrated horror manga I Am a Hero comes a live-action film adaptation that’s bound to get your blood flowing! Thirty-five-year-old assistant manga artist Hideo Suzuki leads an unsatisfying, tedious life. But when a virus outbreak hits Japan turning the infected into mindless cannibals, it’s his chance to become the hero he’s always daydreamed he could be, even if it kills him.Oizumi Yo (Tokyo Ghoul) stars along with Arimura Kasumi (Sekigahara) and Nagasawa Masami (Gintama, Gintama 2). FYI, it's a SUB-ONLY deal, so if you're like me and don't mind the original Japanese audio, head over to Funimation and pre-order your copy ahead of its July 24 release.
