Action figure performance from Japan

Japan’s Educational Hero “ZEROS” will perform live fighting demonstrations as part of Little Tokyo’s Nisei Week festivities on Sunday, August 12, in Los Angeles.

Based in Osaka, ZEROS works as a public hero to teach children the three “Zeros”: “Zero Crime,” “Zero Environment Destruction,” and “Zero Breach of Public Manners.”

Complete with secret identity and eco-friendly super-powers (his eyes are solar batteries!), ZEROS regularly participates in public administration events, crime prevention campaigns by local police, and character shows at local schools. His finishing move is his Super Powerful Plasma Wave Kick which ion-decomposes evil monsters, turning them in recyclable materials like plastic bottles.
