With one of the best starts of a synopsis I have ever read, comes a new live action film from Japan. HK Forbidden Superhero. This is coming from someone who has read, probably, the best part of 10,000 of them over the years.
The story is a simple one. A pervert who is also a superhero. He only gains his power when he puts a pair of women’s panties on his head!
With the help of his martial art skills and superpower inducing underwear, he cleans up the dirty streets of Japan by night and trying to get his girl by day.
We all have our idea of what Japan is like. This is one of the films that don’t help that stereotype of the weird.
Just sit back and watch the newest superhero come to save the day!
We have also been sent a selection of images. Mosty of our hero saving the day in his own style. You have been warned!
WITH GREAT PANTS COMES GREAT RESPONSIBILITY His father was a lawman. His mother was a bondage queen. His destiny was to put knickers on his head and fight for justice. Teenage martial artist Kyosuke Shikijo wants to be a hero. But when the chance comes to foil a bank robbery and win the heart of the girl he adores, the only way to conceal his identity is to put lady’s knickers on his head. This triggers his transformation into Hentai Kamen, the Pervert Mask, with the discovery that female underwear brings him undreamed-of superpowers. Get ready for in-your-face superheroism from a man with pants for a mask. Based on the manga (of course it was based on a manga, what else would it be based on?) by Keishu Ando in Weekly Shonen Jump, HK: Forbidden Superhero is the weirdest crime-fighter in history, not joining the Avengers any time soon. HE’S THE BEST THERE IS AT WHAT HE DOES!
