It’s proven you can’t keep a good cyborg down. And the point will be made with not one but three 3D CG films based on the classic manga Cyborg 009 by Shotaro Ishinomori. Toho Animation unveiled a website Tuesday for Cyborg 009: Call of Justice. Each film from the trilogy will receive a two week limited run in Japan, Part 1 will start November 25, 2016.
The story will follow Joe Shimamura and the members of the Cyborg team after the establishment of the UN Guardian troops. Although living peaceful lives they are called out of retirement after being met by reporter Lucy Davenport. Davenport is aware of a race of highly intelligent beings with superhuman powers called the “Blessed.” Besides Davenport and a handful of people, the human population has no idea that the “Blessed” exist nor that they have been manipulating human history since ancient times. And now with the return of the “Blessed”, their goals remain unknown as their long dark shadows are cast over the earth.
