Shinichi, (Sho Aikawa) is a failure as a teacher and father. His son is bullied at school, his wife is sleeping around and his teenage daughter is a hooker. He tries to escape his mundane life by dressing up as his favorite TV superhero, "Zebraman." He goes off the deep end and starts to dangerously act out his fantasy. 

It's while wearing his homemade costume out around town one night that he runs across Crabman, a costumed bad guy who is actually a man possessed by slimy alien invaders. The two battle (flying scissors!) and Shinichi discovers that he's actually developing real live "Zebraman" superpowers, which is a good thing because the aliens that have possessed Crabman are planning to destroy the planet. Possessed schoolchildren, a mass migration of seals, a battle at the local school gym and a tiny boy in a wheelchair who teaches him a lesson about bravery are just some of the elements that make up this hilarious, hyperactive goulash.
