He faces constant disrespect and neglect from his family and colleagues, leaving him feeling isolated and unhappy.

One fateful night, while walking his dog in a park, Inuyashiki is caught in an explosion caused by an alien spacecraft crash-landing on Earth. Miraculously, both Inuyashiki and a high-school student named Hiro Shishigami, who was also present, are reconstructed by the alien technology. However, their new bodies are now advanced machines, enhancing their physical abilities and granting them various superpowers.

Feeling a newfound sense of purpose, he vows to use his powers for good, seeking out people in need and becoming a hero, saving lives and fighting against criminals.

On the other hand, Hiro, who possesses the same powers, chooses a different path. Filled with anger and resentment towards society due to his troubled past, Hiro starts to utilize his abilities for evil, causing destruction and chaos. While Inuyashiki tries to prevent harm and protect innocent lives, he also finds himself in a constant battle with Hiro, who becomes a notorious villain.

As the story progresses, Inuyashiki's actions gain attention, both positive and negative. Some people idolize him as an extraordinary hero, while others fear him due to his colossal powers.

The movie explores themes of family dynamics, morality, and the consequences of power. It delves into the contrast between good and evil, as both Inuyashiki and Hiro experience the immense influence their powers have on their lives and those around them.
