Onechanbara the Movie‘s sequel, Chanbara Beauty: vorteX the Movie, is already due out on DVD in Japan this July 3rd after filming during the cold month of December 2008. While the turnaround since filming & announcement may be surprising — unless you have seen how low budget most Japanese films run — the bigger surprise is that the first movie’s entire cast has been replaced.
Geneon Universal recently held a press event to show off their new cast and the DVD cover of their upcoming movie. Additional photos of Kumi Imura at the event can be found through her Talent Agency HoriPro. A better look at the cover can be found below.
