"Sengoku BASARA -End of Judgement-" World Premiere at Japan Expo Kickoff Event!
Capcom's wildly popular action game series "Sengoku BASARA" has sold over 3.6 million copies as of March 2014. "Sengoku BASARA -End of Judgement-", the new TV animation series based on the game, is set to premiere and will be broadcast by Nippon TV.
The premiere screening of the first episode will take place not in Japan or anywhere else in the world, but in Paris on the opening day of the Japan Expo, Europe's biggest Japanese culture and entertainment festival! "Sengoku BASARA", set during Japan's Sengoku Period (Warring States Period), showcases the most famous warlords of the 15th and 16th centuries battling for supremacy in hopes of dominating the entire country. Based on the game "Sengoku BASARA: Samurai Heroes", this animation series is set in Sekigahara in western Japan and depicts the epic stories of the Sengoku Period.
"Japan Expo guests, I am absolutely delighted to be able to present to you our newest animation 'Sengoku BASARA' ahead of any other screening in the world.
