Satoshi Ohno ( Arashi) has landed the lead role of Mumon, our lazy anti-hero Ninja in the upcoming release.
There is no actual content up now, but a message from lead Satoshi Ohno ( Japanese Text Only). With production due to being in July, more casting news should be announced very soon.
Brief Summary – Set in the 4th year of Tenshou Era during the Warring States Period (around 1567) of Japan, it tells a dramatized version of the Battle of Murayama, between the Oda clan and the ninja of Iga province.The story features an ensemble cast of questionable sanity and morality drawn together in a conflict of politics and ideologies: a young ninja disillusioned by his people’s way of living, his lazy nemesis secretly struggling to maintain his love-life, and a bunch of sly politicians with hidden agendas.
