Inuyashiki is a Japanese science fiction manga series written and illustrated by Hiroya Oku.

Inuyashiki Ichiro is a middle-aged, friendless man with an uncaring family. One fateful evening, he is struck by a mysterious explosion in a public park, which is of extraterrestrial origin, and his body is replaced by an incredibly powerful, but still outwardly human, mechanical body. He quickly realizes the extent of his body’s powers, and after saving a homeless man being beaten by a pack of teenagers, he decides to dedicate himself to doing good, using his powers to heal those with incurable diseases and fight crime.

However, a teenager who was with him at the time of the explosion, Shishigami Hiro, had the same fate as Ichiro, but unlike Inuyashiki, Shishigami becomes a psychopath who goes about using his new found abilities to murder people, from classmates that annoy him to innocent families, including young children and infants, just for amusement. His acts of merciless cruelty brings him the attention of the police, who can do nothing to stop him, even as it does not take long for Hiro to become the most wanted and dangerous criminal in the country. The series then keeps following these two different individuals who once shared the same, bizarre experience, as their paths are destined to clash, and in the end, their ultimate fates.

Shinsuke Satō (Gantz, Gantz II: Perfect Answer) is directing the film, which stars Noritake Kinashi, Takeru Satoh, Mari Hamada, Yuki Saito, Nayuta Fukuzaki, Ayaka Miyoshi and Kanata Hongou.
