Mackenyu is so handsome :rlytearpls:

This is gonna be an action film, correct? If so, I'm glad to see Yamazaki Kento doing something else other than rom-com. He was great in that 2-minute live action Kingdom so looking forward to this too.

Not that they can't just yellow-wash the cast, but Part 4 is the only part where the cast is even majority Japanese, not to mention it's set in Japan (so the sets will definitely be easier to deal with).
