Based on a story by Kazumasa Hirai, 8 Man had already been adapted into a Manga by Jiro Kuwata (published in Shonen Magazine) when it was adapted into a TV series in 1963. It was later adapted into a live action movie, 8 Man (8 Man returns in the US).
A private investigator working a routine case involving stolen technology is mortally wounded. His only hope for survival comes from sacrificing his humanity to become 8Man -- a powerful cyborg crime-fighter enhanced with a living human brain. Resurrected as the ultimate high-tech vigilante, it is up to 8Man to bring the lawless to justice and put an end to the escalating cycle of violence. A classic animated thriller that will leave you breathless.
