Reactions Around the Web
None of them fit the characters...
I'm actually looking forward to seeing most of these cast members but... I've seen enough of Kanna Hashimoto. She can't even act, I don't want her to be Kagura.
Is it just be or do they always use the same group of actors for live action movies...
I had a feeling they'd cast Tsuyoshi Muro! I'm looking forward to this
So who's going to play the giant dog?
I feel like we always see the same complaints when it comes to live actions... It could be worse, surely?
I actually think everyone fits their character's image... At least face-wise!
