    Slightly disappointed because the cast is Japanese not Chinese (means no offense).

    Actually wishing for Chinese cast so it could look like Red Cliff. And it would be more realistic.

    Yotanwa's and Ten's cast look pretty hot though.

    It would be way better if a major company like HBO or Netflix picked up the manga and did a long time live action series. Kind of like the walking dead.

    It does look interesting, very similar to Red Cliff. Though some characters (Ouki) look a little...strange with their attire and look take straight from the manga. It always bothers me when they try to do that with manga instead of tweaking it. Hopefully it turns out well.

    I don't know about you guys but this looks like it will be epic. Esp when I saw Ouki, and the guy with the cool moustache, that guy just screams badass. Can't wait to see the likes of Ou sen. I hope the guy they chose just oozes with charisma and badassness

    I didn't understand a thing from what they're saying but that Owl looks as annoying as in the manga :pepehands:

    plus dat Yotanwa-sama and her mountain soldiers are on point :steef: this alone makes me excited for it.

    They should make a movie of the Kanki arc in the future :LUL: imagine how epic that would be :sadgrin:

    it will be too much if they do that.
    I just hope they do the generals and great generals by selecting actors that embody the personality of the generals.

    Finally a live action film that is a movie and not a 3+ min short.
    From the trailers, it looks so badass and the characters look to be on point such as Shin,Yotanwa and Ouki.
    Totally hype for it!

    Hmm... The question is... DO the film have enough man power to make this?

    Will the clashes during the battles give us the same level of excitement?
