Fantastipo (ファンタスティポ) is a 2005 Japanese film starring Tsuyoshi Domoto (Kinki Kids) and Taichi Kokubun (TOKIO). The theme song "Fantastipo" is sung by the special unit of the 2 lead actors Toraji Haiji.

Story[edit]

The film mainly revolves around two siblings; the mostly dependable Toraji (Taichi Kokubun of TOKIO), and the free-spirited Haiji (Tsuyoshi Domoto of Kinki Kids). The two suddenly become President and Executive Director of Armadillo, Inc. as a result of their father, Kintaro Koinobori (Akira Takarada), stepping down from his position and appointing his sons in his stead.

With the help of their father, the two brothers continue to keep Armadillo Inc. at the top of the heap. Slowly, but surely the relationship among all three begins to deteriorate in the process.

Through trials and tribulations, the siblings slowly begin to learn the true meaning of family.

Will the family hold together? Will they pull through? The answer may lie in a song the boys are composing.

That song’s name is Fantastipo
