Well, I guess the last part about encouraging disabled people is not your typical hitman-type action, but that’s because Akira Sato (Fable) is not your typical hitman.

A hitman who goes on sabbatical is sincerely one of the most original stories that I have ever heard of. Additionally, the feel-good vibes of the movie are very enticing in these times.

However, there seems to be much more to the story than it seems to meet the eye in the trailer. How will Fable and Hinako Saba’s story unfold? Will Fable kill someone?

To find out more, don’t miss the theatrical release this summer!

About The Fable

The Fable is a manga series by Katsuhisa Minami that started serialization on 1st November 2014 in the Weekly Young Magazine.

It has been adapted into a famous live-action series in 2019 that will receive a sequel in 2021.

Fable is an expert hitman who is the best in his field. However, he has killed so many people that his boss tells him to lay low for a while. Within this time, Fable should not kill anyone if he does not want a deadly punishment.

However, living a normal life might be the toughest thing that the hitman has ever done.
