Storyline

Inuyashiki Ichirou is down on his luck. While only 58 years old, his geriatric looks often have him written off as a pathetic old man by the world around him and he's constantly ignored and disrespected by his family despite all that he's done to support them. On top of everything else, his doctor has revealed that he has cancer and it appears that he has little time left in this world. But just when it seems things couldn't get any worse, a blinding light in the night sky strikes the earth where Ichirou stands. He later wakes up to find himself unscathed, but he soon starts to notice that there's something... different about himself. However, it turns out that these strange, new changes are just what Ichirou needs to take a new lease on life and now it seems like there's nothing to stop him from being a hero worthy of the respect that he never had before... unless, that is, there was someone else out there with these same changes...

simple but engaging characters with fine voice cast
14 August 2018 | by TYContact1See all my reviews

Inuyashiki - Last Hero on Amazon Prime Video - a touching sci-fi action anime about a cancer patient accidentally got cured by a space ship, and uses his power to rescue and cure other people. The super villain is a high schooler who also happens to encounter the alien technology, and uses it to amuse himself with random killings. Good voice acting, simple and engaging characters. About 10 episodes, based on a manga series. The main character is voiced by Fumiyo Kohinata, a genuine character actor, who can convincingly plays a variety of roles: cops, teachers, doctors, family man, wise man, humble artist, calculating executive, slimy conman, to name a few.
