A SCIFI JAPAN EXCLUSIVE
Distributor Showgate Inc. has provided information and high-res photos from their upcoming release, MY DAD IS A HEEL WRESTLER (パパはわるものチャンピオン, Papa wa Warumono Chanpion). The live-action adaptation of the popular picture book series written by Masahiro Itabashi and illustrated by Hisanori Yoshida features the real-life professional wrestler Hiroshi Tanahashi, along with his colleagues from the wrestling world.
“Daddy’s job is to be a bad guy wrestler. At first, I was shocked…”
9 year-old Shota sneaks into his dad’s car to follow him to find out “What Daddy Does” to write for school. Then Shota sees for the first time that his dad, Takashi, was, in fact, the villain wrestler “Cockroach Mask”.
Ashamed, Shota asks Takashi to quit his job, but Takashi says “If there’s no bad guys, the heroes don’t shine, right?” Shota is ashamed to tell anyone about what his dad does because all of his friends at school dislike Cockroach Mask.
A heartwarming family drama for all working daddies, and all their families!
