Synopsis:

The incredible storyline of "20th Century Boys" has captured the imagination of millions since 1999.  Now, the live action feature of this manga series is coming to you in a trilogy at a production budget of USD60 millions!

In the summer of 1969, Kenji, an elementary school kid and his friends built  a secret base and one of their activities held there was writing the "Book of Prophecy".  In their "Prophecy", the children fantasized that they had to fight villains who were out to conquer the world.

Years later in 1997, Kenji is the manager of a convenience store.  He has given up his dream to be a rock star and chooses to live a regular life, taking care of his sister's baby girl after his sister has disappeared for an unknown reason.

His boring life is turned upside down one day when his old classmate dies mysteriously and an entire family in the neighbourhood disappears.  At the same time, a religious cult and its mysterious leader, "Friend" emerges and a strange chain of events which duplicate exactly the events described in the "Book of Prophecy" follow.

As the events in the "Book of Prophecy" unfold, Kenji and his former classmates decide to take on the villain but the cunning "Friend" 
frames Kenji and his gang so people believe that they are a group of terrorists instead!

31 December 2000 is the day described in the "Book of Prophecy" as doomsday.  With earth-shattering footsteps, the shadow of terror arrives in Tokyo.  It is their atomic-powered Gigantic Robot!  The destiny of mankind is now on the verge of doom!
