The sequel reunites the original director, writer and main star and looks to be even more firmly placed in the sci-fi/fantasy genre than the first. The premise is as follows
Set in 2025, Shinichi Ichikawa/Zebraman is suffering from amnesia and the film sees him battling against an evil organisation that is trying to take over the world.
Miike is a fantastic visual director and this trailer really shows off his imaginative style with a great use of the black and white striped motif.
Zebraman 2 is slated for release in Japan by Toei on May 1st 2010 and has a straight to DVD tie-in film directed by Nishiumi Kenichiro with the incredible title, Revenge of the Zebra Miniskirt Police.
