Rather than fighting crime, this Japanese hero has found himself a worthier cause

We’ve just discovered our new favourite superhero. His name is Mangetsu Man and you’ll never guess what is his super power is. Dedicated to keeping the streets of Tokyo clean, Mangetsu Man is a force for trash-justice. Clad in a tight purple suit complete with cape and a giant yellow ball for a head, Mangetsu Man (translates as full-moon man) is always armed with his trusty dustpan and brush.

According to his website he is fighting not just for cleaner streets in Japans, but also for cleaner hearts for its people. He hopes that people will join him in his one man offensive against dirty streets and unhappy hearts, promoting a happier and healthier way of life.

Obviously his identity is a mystery and he chooses to communicate through a dictation app on his phone rather than risk his voice being recognised.
