A middle-aged slacker living in a rundown; graffiti-ridden slum; Daisato's job involves being shocked by bolts of electricity that transform him into a stocky; stick-wielding giant several stories high who is entrusted with defending Japan from a host of bizarre monsters. But while his predecessors were national heroes; he is a pariah among the citizens he protects; who bitterly complain about the noise and destruction of property he causes. And Daisato has his own problems an agent insistent on branding him with sponsor advertisements; an Alzheimer-afflicted grandfather who transforms into a giant in dirty underwear; and a family who is embarrassed by his often cowardly exploits. A wickedly deadpan spin on the giant Japanese superhero; BIG MAN JAPAN is an outrageous portrait of a pathetic but truly unique hero.
