"Sengoku Basara" Live-Action Cast Costume Photos

Anime's greatest history lesson gets the live-action treatment

Our first look at the live-action Sengoku Basara: Moonlight Party series featured Takeda Kouhei, Hayashi Kento, and GACKT in costume as historical figures Sanada Yukimura, Date Masamune, and Oda Nobunaga respectively. My only problem was that while Gackt was hamming it up and really getting into his "evil overlord" role, Kento and Kouhei looked a bit... unenthusiastic for such a hot-blooded production.

From left to right: "Meh." "Meh." "I WILL DROWN ALL THE PUPPIES."

 

The official site for the show released a ton of photos featuring the full cast in costume, now with much more appropriate amounts of burning spirit. I'm impressed that everybody was included!

They, uh... they actually look like the characters in the game. That's really surprising. While I'm sure this is going to be an hour of pure weekly cheese that'll be incredibly fun to watch, what do you think? Will Sengoku Basara: Moonlight Party live up to the insanity of the games and anime?
