It was recently announced at the Tokyo Film Festival during the worldwide premiere of Cyborg 009 Call of Justice that Kazuhiko Inoue is playing the Emperor. Those who watched the 1979 anime series will know him as the voice of Cyborg 009/ Joe Shimamura.
ANN posted a quick description of the film’s story.
The story depicts Joe Shimamura and the other cyborgs’ struggle with the Bresudo, a group of people who possess superhuman powers and intellect, and have manipulated human history since ancient times. Bresudo’s goals are unknown, and they cast a dark shadow over the world.
Although only a few people believe in the Bresudo’s existence, one journalist named Lucy Davenport heads to Texas to contact a certain family, and she meets the cyborgs. The cyborgs themselves have been freed from their duty of protecting humanity ever since the establishment of the UN Guardian troops, and they now live quiet lives of peace. However, Lucy’s visit and the return of the Bresudo draw Joe and the others once more into battle.
