Synopsis

The story starts off with a face-off between two rival heroes, ZET and ALPHAS, and then traces their origins - Jin Kanzaki, a young man with the ability to transform into a superhuman being known as ZET, and Kouga Amagi, a young man with a strong sense of justice who uses technology to fight as ALPHAS.

The fates of these two men and those around them intertwine as they fight to protect mankind and destroy monstrous abominations known as Players, who ironically are the creations of the Amagi Corporation, the company founded by Kouga’s grandfather, Mitsugai Amagi.

"To be the man, you gotta beat the man".
- Ric Flair

Being a superhero is never easy, especially when you try to live a double life. Superheroes like Batman, Superman, and Spiderman deals with the dangers they get exposed to on a daily basis. They feel like it's their responsibility to protect the innocent and deliver that strong sense of justice. After all, justice is the judgement of truth and to uphold such a sense comes at a great responsibility, sacrifice, and lives.

Then there comes a hero at the darkest hour. He is ZET. Enter Zetman.

The story is set in the modern times with read more

What is the true meaning of justice? Is it doing the right thing no matter the situation, or achieving the right result no matter the cost? This is the question that ZETMAN centers around. What may seem like the right thing to do can actually end up not being the case and vice-versa, as shown many times throughout the series. The decisions that one comes to based on their kind of justice will undoubtedly vary from person to person. Thus, ZETMAN attempts to illustrate the effects of various viewpoints on justice within a city that is riddled with evil and crippled by the conflicting mindsets read more

Animated by Studio TMS, which never produced an above average work (its best attempts were Hundred Stories, Kenichi, and D.Gray-Man). Directed by Nabeshima Osamu who has directed all sorts of shows over the years, from children’s, to mahou shoujo, to fighting shounen. None of them managed to be above average either (the most famous amongst them are Saint Tail, Hamtaro, D.Gray-Man, and Lost Canvas). Can’t say there is much to expect from all that.

Zetman seemed very promising at first to me. It was dark, it had rather realistically drawn characters, it was very violent, and had people turned to monsters and using lots of read more

I was suprised by this Anime, Didn't think I'd like it that much.
Zetman is a Seinen. If you like violent stories, full of psychological warfare, Full of Blood, Monsters. You will surely and truly Like Zetman.

The Story was a bit confusing at first, Getting clearer and clearer throughout the Anime. Monsters created by Humans break the law and start killing they're creators. I liked the story.It's a dark anime. Violence everywhere, Blood everywhere, And bunch of psychological mind games happening to the characters. I gave it a 8.

The Art was good. Unique Art which differs from other Animes, Although I did not find it was read more

Very similar series about a main hero fighting with monsters in human skin.

Zetman would probably not exists if Guyver didn't. Both anime feature similar plot, gore, monsters disguised as humans and tragic events. Both heroes have similar powers which is somewhat biological and also like the monsters powers.

It's not hard to say what those two series have in common:
• surely the first thing you can notice is that the art is very similar, well of course it does. Masakazu Katsura is a great manga-ka and author of Zetman, he in fact also worked as original character designer for Tiger & Bunny. His great art is already something that might catch you to watch both.
• still, both series are about superpowers and the concepts of hero & villain, justice & crime, honesty & corruption.
Overall the stories, those concepts play a dominant part.
• the main characters in both series are the heroes and fight against the "evil" in their own way.

Both series are interesting, although i have to say that Zetman is way much better in the manga version rather than anime.

A big difference i can say so far about those two series is:
while T&B takes place in a megalopolis modeled after the american New York city and has a bunch of "typical american heroes", Zetman is located in Japan and has a brand new vision of the word "hero" (as in fact, the main character, can be seen more as "not your typical hero"..)

Anyways, if you liked one of those, give a try to the other as well! You might be happily surprised!
Both anime are in dark themes. Both really overflow with blood and violence.
reportRecommended by Aioon - Add to favorites
Both of these Anime have similar styles, they are both sci-fi and both have quite a bit of blood and gore in them. Not to mention they're very dark series.
