"A man comes home to his apartment late at night. He is quite goofy and seems to live alone. His mind conjures up an imaginary friend to whom he speaks to from time to time. A boy he calls Yashima, He has an active imagination and is easily scared of the paranormal. He then hears news about an accident in which an old man dies. For some reason, this conjures up thoughts of heroism in the man. As he even proclaims "I Am A Hero". The man then stays up until early morning out of his irrational fear. Surrounded by his favorite manga to protect him and accompanied by his most prized possession... A shotgun. The man starts to feel safe and waits until dawn before he goes to sleep.And while I’ve not managed to watch the feature film adaptation of Kengo Hanazawa's zombie horror manga "I Am A Hero”, Raie Jimenez has given us a headsup of the “Motion Manga” he had so far made - in two parts, shown here.
Who is this man? Is he really the hero for "I Am A Hero"? How can a coward save the world?"
