Second Teaser Trailer For Live-Action 'TIGER MASK'

The second teaser trailer for the live-action adaptation of the classic anime and manga from Ikki Kajiwara and Naoki Tsuji has arrived online. Tiger Mask (タイガーマスク) follows main protagonist Naoto Date as he fights his way through the ranks of an evil wrestling organization.






As previously reported, Tiger Mask (タイガーマスク) follows lead Eiji Wentz (Brave Story) as Naoto Date, a character that gets mixed up in a shading wrestling operation and then breaks rank to oppose their forced acquisition of an orphanage. The film also stars Natsuna Watanabe (Gantz, Kimi ni Todoke) as heroine and love interest, Ruriko and Show Aikawa (Zebraman) as Mister X. Tiger Mask was the basis for the popular character King from the video game Tekken. The original manga from Kajiwara and Tsuji ran from 1968 to 1971 and received an anime adaptation in 1969. The redesigned look for the wrestler is reportedly based on American superheroes Batman and Spider-Man. Expect a full trailer to be released in the coming days.

""Tiger Mask" is the alter ego of the character Naoto Date, a pro wrestler who goes against an evil wrestling organization and fights for children in an orphanage. In the new setup for the film, Date dons a special suit and "transforms" into Tiger Mask with enhanced mobility and muscle strength. His mask has also been redesigned with a nod to American comic action heroes such as Spider-Man and Batman."
