JOJO'S BIZZARE ADVENTURE: Take A Gander At All Seven Character Posters For Miike Takashi's New Live-Action Adaptation
Hopefully not too far off from an official teaser or trailer until its August release, the seventh and presumably final character poster arrived for Miike Takashi's live-action adaptation of JoJo's Bizzare Adventure. The poster showcases actor Iseya Yusuke who takes on the role of Kujo Jotaro, a stand user who initially appears in the Stardust Crusaders arc of the original manga by author Araki Hirohiko, and subsequently in the Diamond Is Unbreakable arc on which the film is based.
Iseya is joined by lead actor Yamazaki Kento who plays Higashikata Josuke, a high school student who comes from a long line of users of Stands - entities that when summoned can momentarily exhibit unique abilities. In the manga and as seen in the David Production anime series, we are introduced to Higashikata who, upon meeting Kujo, learns of a spate of mysterious murders in a series of events that lead him to confront stand user armed with a mystical bow and arrow that can turn nearly anyone into Stand users themselves.
Also starring are Kamiki Ryunosuke as Higashikata's bashful friend Hirose Koichi and actress Komatsu Nana as Hirose's Stand-using romantic pursuant, Yamagishi Yukako with Okada Masaki and Mackenyu as the reclusive Nijimura Brothers - Keicho and Okuyasu, and Yamada Takayuki as elusive, possesed killer, Angelo.
All seven can now be seen in the posters below. Check them out!
