sengoku basara moonlight partyThe Sengoku Basara game franchise by CAPCOM is getting its very first TV series adaptation and the main villain will be played by Japan’s most famous singer – GACKT. Yes, you read this right – he will play Oda Nobunaga, the most evil personage in the story.  Below you can see the other cast members as revealed.

The news was released during a special event earlier today (or late yesterday depending on your location).

GACKT will also be working on the theme song “Hakuro”. As the show will premiere on MBS next month, they are quite late promoting such a big project, but I hope that most of the fans will be able to see it online in one way or another. The air date of Sengoku Basara -Moonlight Party- PILOT is July 12, 2012. It will be shown weekly, on Thursdays at 25.25 (meaning Fridays at 1:25am).  Each episode will last for about 25 minutes.
