Ladies and gentlemen, we finally have the very first video for the live-action Touken Ranbu film! Toho’s official YouTube channel has now dropped the video, and it highlights the film’s main characters and the story.

Live-action Mars’ Saiji Yakumo is directing the film, while Attack on Titan anime’s Yasuko Kobayashi is writing the script. The staff previously announced the film’s cast, and they include a few cast members from the live-action stage play. It also features one seiyuu/Kamen Rider that many of us are familiar with.
