The Skull Man

Show Summary

The Skull Man is an animated horror science fiction TV series developed by Studio BONES based on Shotaro Ishinomori's manga series of the same name that follows orphan Hayato Mikogami, a twenty-three year-old reporter who wishes to make a name for himself by getting a story on Otomo City's infamous and mysterious Skull Man. It seems that his old hometown has become host to a strange man wearing a skull shaped mask with superpowers and deadly weapons. This Skull Man has been killing a number of people, typically the ones taking a nightly stroll. As Hayato and his sixteen-year-old photographer, Kiriko Mamiya, they begin to piece together a deeper conspiracy involving a pharmaceutical company, a creepy religious sect, and bloodthirsty half-human, half-animal creatures. Even more surprising, Hayato and Kiriko discover just who or what Skull Man is as the ramifications of a long ago catastrophe comes back to bite them all in the butt.
