Sengoku Basara: Judge End Promo, Songs and Cast Information Revealed


The war begins again

Who said history couldn’t be exciting? Well whoever it was is being proven wrong by CAPCOM…for the third time. For any of you who have ever seen Sengoku Basara before, you’ll know that it takes an artistic lean slightly beyond what might be considered “humanly possible” and provides for us some epic and emotionally charged fights scenes between the most animated warriors of Japan. Why the history lesson you ask? Well everyone’s favourite Samurai Kings are back for yet another anime season, known as Judge End. Focusing on the Battle of Sekigahara, which was previously covered in the PS3/Wii title Sengoku Basara 3, characters old and new alike must once again fight for the most sought after real estate in this feudal period: Japan.

Bringing life to these anime champions of old are:

Kazuya Nakai as Masamune Date
Souichiro Hoshi as Yukimura Sanada
Toru Okawa as Ieyasu Tokugawa
Tomokazu Seki as Mitsunari Ishida
Toshiyuki Morikawa as Kojuro Katakura
Tessho Genda as Shingen Takeda
Takehito Koyasu as Sasuke Sarutobi
Ryutaro Okiayu as Hideyoshi Toyotomi
Akira Ishida as Hanbei Takenaka
Fumihiko Tachiki as Yoshiysugu Ohtani

It has also been revealed that Takanori Nishikawa, perhaps better known as T.M. Revolution, will lend his voice to the anime original character Sakai Tadatsugu, a general in the Tokugawa army. While we’re on the topic of music, the official Judge End twitter account officially noted that the series opening theme will be “Thunderclap” by Fear, and Loathing in Las Vegas, whilst the ending theme shall be “Hokkyokusei ~Polaris~” as performed by Chiaki Ishikawa.

Oh, just in case you want to thank the people who are actually bringing this series to fruition:
