I'm not too much (read not at all) into the Japanese pop music scene, so I really have no clue who EXILE are. Looks interesting.

EXILE seems to be quite popular, but to have their own anime...

Is it just me or did they borrow Sengoku Basara's concept? The characters look like themselves, but the overall idea seems to be very similar to Sengoku Basara.
