[ Story ]

The second chapter in the ‘20th Century Boys' trilogy based on Urasawa Naoki's best-selling manga series, which has been published in twelve countries. Chapter two is permeated with iconic images from 1970s
Japan such as the Osaka world expo. The all-star cast from the first film returns with the story focusing on the character Kanna, played by exciting newcomer Taira Airi. With Urasawa himself overseeing the screenplay, the mysteries of the film version develop on an even more massive scale.
The year 2015—fifteen years after the "Bloody New Year's Eve" terrorist attack. Kenji (Karasawa Toshiaki) , whom the mysterious figure known as "Friend" blames for the incident, hasn't resurfaced
since. Kenji's niece Kanna (Taira) knows that Friend is behind everything and gains cooperation from Detective Chono (Fujiki
Naohito) and Otcho (Toyokawa Etsushi) to expose Friend's true identity. However, after Friend is assassinated he's miraculously
resurrected and releases poison gas across the globe in a plot to wipe out humanity and begin a new world order.
