The sequels Miike has made, have on the whole been quite successful and well received, even on this site. What works for this film is, unlike the first film, the Zebraman story is played with a serious tone. Zebraman 2: Attack on Zebra City is set in 2025, and awakes our hero, amnesiac and white-haired, only to be gunned down mere minutes later by the mayor’s death squad. On top of that, there is an alien invasion and the aliens start possessing citizens and using them them as people puppets. The final nail in the coffin is that Zebramans identity is finally discovered.
