The original manga that piqued many fans interest for its intriguing concept, “Inuyashiki” teased the promotional video for its anime series adaptation. The PV featured the 58-year-old Man Ichiro Inuyashiki who had died and revived as a machine.

Inuyashiki’s miserable life

No one cared about Inuyashiki. He begged for affection, but even his wife and two kids would not give it. One day, the old man learned that he has only three months to live and thought to himself that his dog would probably miss him.

He must have spent his three remaining months in luxury. But, Inuyashiki’s life duration was cut short because of the alien's ship that suddenly crashed and killed the old man.

The aliens revived Inuyashiki however he is no longer a human. Inuyashiki became an emotionless machine.

Inuyashiki’s anime teaser previewed the story from the time when he was still an old man until he became a machine. During the first few frames, the old man appeared to be lonely and saddened. He also cried remembering the things that had happened in his life.

The man’s expression changed from sad to afraid when he was falling from a great height. After he died, Inuyashiki has reawakened to a new humanoid body. From the looks of it, the humanoid can now push away his enemies and can even crumple vehicles.
