In case you’re unfamiliar, Sengoku Basara is a Playstation 2 fighting game by Capcom. I’ll have to say… it is an awesome stress-reliever. One of the fun things about this game are the imaginative weapons the characters use. View the game trailer! You can also hear the voices of the seiyuus, including Koyasu Takehito 子安武人, Hayami Sho 速水 奨, Paku Romi 朴 璐美, etc
And guess what? Come April 2009, there’s going to be a Sengoku Basara anime XD The story is loosely set in the warring era in Japan, so we can expect lots of battles and action.
Definitely something to look forward to ^^ And for seiyuu-fangirls, you’ll be happy to know that the lead characters will be voiced by Nakai Kazuya 中井和哉, Morikawa Toshiyuki 森川智之, Hoshi Souichirou 保志総ー朗 and Wakamoto Norio 若本規夫 The animation for the promotional video looks great. Character designs of the bishis are yummy. Hopefully the quality is maintained for the whole series.
