Let's get ready to fight!

By 2025, fifteen years after Zebraman defeated the Aliens, the world has changed entirely. While Zebraman has lost his memory and is in a rehabilitation facility, Tokyo has renamed itself Zebra City, and has instituted a “Zebra Time” starting at 5:00 AM/PM for 5 minutes in which the government allows the Zebra Police to attack any and all presumed criminals. One Zebra Time results in the attempted murder of ex-teacher, Shinichi Ichikawa, also known as Zebraman. Surviving the attack, he meets other survivors of Zebra Time who plan to revolt against the new fascist system lead by the mysterious Zebra Queen. Ichikawa finds himself teaming up with television's fake Zebraman and a young protege to save a mysterious little girl from Zebra Queen and her Zebra Police. Will Ichikawa regain his memories and realize he's Zebraman in time to stop Zebra Queen before she can use the strange aliens from 2010 to bring Zebra Time to the whole world?

FUNimation will offer the film on Blu-ray and DVD later this year. ZEBRAMAN 2: ATTACK ON ZEBRA CITY will also be shown at the 10th Annual Asian Film Festival of Dallas in July.
