The Cyborg Cop that started it all is back... with a vengeance!
Since the recent disappearance of 8 Man, a mysterious cyborg super hero created by Professor Tani, the city reels under "terrorist" assaults from murderous drug-crazed street gangs. Hazuma, an ex-cop who now runs his own detective agency, is hired to track down a missing scientist alleged to have made off with cybernetics from Professor Tani's laboratory. The missing hardware is reappearing as psycho-activated weapons grafted onto the bodies of the rogue "cyper-junkies."
During his investigation Hazuma is brutally murdered. Dr. Tani uses Hazuma as a bio-template to replace the missing 8 Man. As a cover, 8 Man maintains the original persona of the detective, yet must cope with the duality of the cynical private eye and maintain the balance as an emotionless super-android hero.
Based on the popular 1960's Japanese comic book and animation hero, 8 MAN AFTER draws from Kazumasa Hirai and Jiro Kuwata's original science fiction adventure to create a bold new super hero that embodies the essence of Philip K. Dick with the persona of Philip Marlowe.
Contains OVA episodes 1-4.
