Matsumoto Jun of recent Bambino and Hana Yori Dango fame, has sure come a long way. I remember watching this skinny, curly-haired, buck-toothed teen on NHK saying to myself, “What the hell am I watching this for (did I just say something self-incriminating?)?” Ahh… those were the days!
The story is about a defeated general who is assigned to secretly escort a princess to safety. Along the way, he is joined by two peasants – one of which is the protagonist which Jun (close kami eh) will portray.
Special effects genius Higuchi Shinji is tapped as the director with Nakashima Kazuki writing the adaptation.
