Shonen Flop


May 30, 2020

Set in the near future, teenage engineering supergenius Koshiro Tatara has passed away, leaving behind his twin brother and main character Kaname. Kaname is a hot-blooded by-the-book shonen protagonist who dreams of being the hero “Jackman”. Kaname gets a text from his brother, telling him to meet. It turns out his brother didn’t die but rather had his consciousness put into a super-suit, which when worn by his brother turns them into the hero Zipman. Working together, they have to save the city from an organization of super-suit wielding evildoers, ruled by the mysterious Chairman. You can read the first chapters of Zipman!! here.
