The teaser trailer is now out for Yukihiko Tsutsumi's "20th Century Boys." Let me tell you that fans on both sides of the Pacific have been geeking hardcore for this one! Based on the popular manga by Naoki Urasawa, "20th Century Boys" looks like it may turn into high-end special effects blockbuster.
Not much can be seen in this first trailer, teasers normally show very little. The only real image we are left with is a giant robot rising that looks very much like something from "Sky Captain."
Growing older is pretty rough and Kenji is finding out just how hard it can be as life starts wearing down on him. On top of trying to make ends meet running a convenience store he has to care for the niece that his missing sister left in his care. Memories of youth make it easier, until those memories come back to haunt him.
Kenji and his old friends are slowly being drawn into a mysterious conspiracy that could threaten the world. Who is the mysterious “Friend” and how does he tie into Kenji’s youth? Why are there disappearances and deaths tied into Ochanomizu University? Their memories hold the keys to the puzzle, but time and age have clouded their minds.
The strange occurrences and the reach of the “Friend” conspiracy grow by the day. It will all culminate on New Year’s Eve 2000. Will Kenji and the others be able to put together the puzzle and save the world?
