Yakuza Movie Actor Ren Osugi Promotes "Skip Beat" Manga

Volume 31 of "Skip Beat" and new edition of "Tokyo Crazy Paradise" released in Japan

Yoshiki Nakamura's 1996 shoujo yakuza manga Tokyo Crazy Paradise is being recollected in new Japanese editions, with volumes 1 and 2 re-released on September 20th. In honor of the release, new promo posters have featured character Ryuji Shirogami replaced by yakuza movie action Ren Osugi - who has appeared in Takeshi Kitano movies like Brother and Takashi Miike movies like Dead or Alive, Full Metal Yakuza, and Sabu.

 

Disconcertingly, Osugi stuck around to take Tsuruga Ren's place in a promo for the new volume of Skip Beat too. Volume 31 of the manga was also released on the 20th.
