Overflowing with raucous humour, heart and guts, Gachi Boy is about putting tragedy in a headlock and not letting it define you.
When undergrad law student Ryoichi joins a university pro-wrestling team, his diligent note taking on the wrestling moves mystifies his teammates. With Ryoichi starting to make a name for himself in the ring - sporting a lizard mask and green tights - it becomes apparent that his notes are something more than the work of an industrious student. Chaotic fun underscoring an uplifting message, Gachi Boy is about going after what you want, no matter what, and making the best of whatever circumstances you find yourself in.
