I can't wait to see this, it seems awesome.
although I don't know how they will make the six swords and the awesome effects.
But I will still watch it even if it turns out bad.

Totally going to post this news on my site

Loved Sengoku Basara, but I have my doubts about how this is going to turn out. I will watch it for Gackt.

Really not sure if I want this... I don't like CGI movie/drama and stuff... >>

Are they serious about this? O_o I'd rather pass this experience...

Aw, I just can't picture Hayashi Kento as Date. For one, he's stuck as Riku in my mind... and he's not going to pull off the COOL and the English anyway. :(

I'll totally be watching if they somehow stuff Tokugawa in there, though w

Gackt as Nobunaga? Mindblown..

I expected him to be at least Sanada Yukimura.

Nooooo, Date looks really uncool. And wtf is wrong with Yukimura's hair?! So far, only good part is Nobunaga... -__-

Staff and cast (besides Gackt of course<3) not that appealing. Will pass for sure.
Because of casts like these, I fantasize 2D characters more than normal human beings -_-

same here, the odds in which this live action will be good is too damn low.

Can't wait to see that xD

I saw along trailer on TV today! It wasn't bad but it isn't like the games or anime or manga. But it is well done!

I see Gackt is getting older for Kenshin Uesugi, he is Oda Nobunaga now.
