In the summer of 2013, Fantasia’s audience was brought to the brink of ecstasy by Hentai Kamen, the Masked Pervert, at one of the wildest screenings in the history of the festival. The underwear-sniffing superhero slips into his tiny tights and fishnet stockings to battle crime in libidinous style. Evildoers will get what they deserve, be it through flying bondage techniques or a face full of HK’s package. But you’re not safe either — HK2: THE ABNORMAL CRISIS is bound to bring the room to the heights of orgasmic hilarity!

Times are tough for our Masked Pervert. In his guise as Kyosuke, his tender bond with Aiko is gradually getting frayed. Increasingly resentful of his lingerie obsession which she just can’t understand, Aiko even demands that give her his underwear, the dominant element of his crime-fighting kit. And as Hentai Kamen, his sworn enemy Ogane and his cronies are breathing up all the used panties they can find, to deny him his superpowers. Now vulnerable, he must find the strength inside himself to fight wrongdoers without relying on stimulating scents and undergarments.

Given the outrageous success of HK/FORBIDDEN SUPER HERO, reflected in the two Public Prizes earned at Fantasia 2013, writer and director Yuichi Fukada wisely decided not to tamper with his well-oiled machine. HK2 again has its way with Western and Japanese superheroes alike, notably Sam Raimi’s SPIDER-MAN, with a film engorged with salacious gags, absurd dialogue, hilariously over-the-top action, and a rogue’s gallery of grotesque baddies including Mr. Vacuum and a powerful robotic crab-man. Bouncing along briskly, the funny, inventive and very well-executed, HK2 promises another wild and noisy night your underwear won’t soon forget.
