It is the late 21st century. Earth is in crises and mankind is at risk. Legend tells of a hero who will arise and set things right. In the mean time, it is the last day of the Fifty Year War and the robot armies are still rioting. The Neo-Cell is being developed by dedicated scientists but will this panacea be perfected in time? Meanwhile our hero’s mother is going blind and his fiancée is kidnapped. In the face of the rebels of Zone Seven he has but little choice. He, himself, must become Casshern, the legendary hero who will save mankind.
This single showing (the original Japanese with English subtitles) is made possible through the permission of Shochiku (Japan).
