    Gackt as Nobunaga... he looks so in character even if he is just posing.. and his facial expression for the shot makes his part as Nobunaga all so real.. Could get very interesting

    incredible cast.

    actually why is there such a live-action-version-of-xx hype now? so many things get live-action adaptions now

    This will be interesting to watch. I know that Takeda-san will do a good job as Yukimura. He's excellent at wacky characters (Otoya from Kiva being a prime example). Gackt-san as Oda shouldn't be too bad, he pretty awesome at dead seriousness. My only beef is with Hayashi-san as Date. I really feel that they could have chosen a better suited actor but just went with it after getting Gackt-san.

    With Arisue Mayuko and Iwanaga Hiroaki joining the cast, this is fast looking epic.

    I think Gackt role as Nobunaga in the live action would be good...

    Tokuyama-san would make a better Date I think. Every role he's done has been that I've seen has been very errogant and he's english isn't that bad. I don't think that Hayashi-san will make a good Date, maybe he'd be a good Katakura.

    Man this will be so awesome! I saw the Stage Show 2009 and it blew me away so even if is with other actors I believe Capcom won't mess this up (they know what they are doing for this series...other than bringing the games out for others to enjoy them >3> ) I just wonder how Gackt is going to handle all the craziness. I know Nobunaga doesn't do a lot of action but still...either way I can wait to see this!
