Trailer for 20th Century Boys 1: Beginning of the End.
It all begins in 1969 when a young boy named Kenji and his friends get together in their secret fort and write 'The Book of Prophecy.' In their book, they write about a future where they fight against an evil organization trying to take over the world and bring about Doomsday. At the same time, a mysterious cult led by a man only known as 'Friend' has emerged and gained strong influence over society. A series of catastrophic events begin to occur, mirroring the prophecies made up by the young Kenji. The greatest fear is that the climax of The Book of Prophecy will become a reality: on December 31st, 2000, a terrifying giant virus-spreading robot will attack the entire city of Tokyo, leading to the end of mankind. The only people who know about The Book are Kenji and his childhood friends. Who is Friend? Will Kenji and his friends be able to stop Friend, save mankind, and live to see the 21st Century?
