Mighty Boy Short Film Debuts at Film Festival


Mighty Boy Short Film Debuts at Film Festival


An independent production, based on Naoki Urasawa’s Mighty Boy manga has been released.


Director Javier Yanez and screenwriter Miguel Moran’s take on the original manga by Naoki Urasawa has been released. Urasawa, known for titles including MONSTER and 20th Century Boys, penned the original Mighty Boy manga as a parody tribute to the Super Sentai and tokusatsu genre. Urasawa and publisher Shogakukan have both given their consent for the project.

The story:

Jaime, a university student, decided to give it his all when he found himself working on a TV show that allowed him to achieve his dream of becoming a superhero. Unfortunately, things in the real world rarely play out as they do in fiction and difficult decisions often bring unforeseen consequences. Now Jaime must train harder than he’s ever had to before in order to face off against his greatest foe: being an adult.

The production, whose creators originally launched an indiegogo campaign in 2012, is being screened as part of the Iberoamerican Short Film Festival.
