Killing for the Prosecution (Blu-ray) (English Subtitled) (Deluxe Edition) (Japan Version) Blu-ray Region All
| Kimura Takuya
| Yoshitaka Yuriko
| Ohkura Koji
Johnny's idols Kimura Takuya and Ninomiya Kazunari collaborate onscreen for the first time in Killing for the Prosecution! Harada Masato (The Emperor in August) directs the courtroom suspense film based on the 2013 novel Kensatsugawa no Zainin by Shizukue Shusuke. Kimura, who famously played an eccentric, upright public prosecutor in the Hero series, takes on a grayer role this time as a veteran prosecutor facing a moral dilemma. The tense legal procedural also co-stars Yoshitaka Yuriko (Yurigokoro), Matsushige Yutaka (Midnight Diner), Hira Takehiro (Sekigahara), Okura Koji (Recall) and Yamazaki Tsutomu.
Okino (Ninomiya Kazunari), a young prosecutor in the Tokyo District Public Prosecutor's Office, looks up to elite veteran Mogami (Kimura Takuya) as a mentor. The two are assigned to a murder case whose suspect was previously implicated in an infamous schoolgirl murder case that has passed its statute of limitations. Okino's doubts about Mogami's handling of the investigation leads to a standoff between the two prosecutors over where justice lies.
Gintama 2: Rules Are Made To Be Broken (Blu-ray) (Normal Edition) (Japan Version) Blu-ray Region All
| Yoshizawa Ryo
| Miura Haruma
| Yagira Yuya
The first live-action Gintama was supposed to be a one-off film but, hey, Rules Are Made to Be Broken! Following the blockbuster success of the 2017 adaptation of Sorachi Hideaki's best-selling manga, Gintama returns with an even bigger sequel that's just as fun, irreverent and chockfull of action, spectacle and Easter eggs. Oguri Shun is back as the glib hero, eccentric samurai and odd-job business owner Sakata Gintoki. Most of the first film's cast members, including Suda Masaki, Hashimoto Kanna, Nagasawa Masami, Domoto Tsuyoshi, Muro Tsuyoshi, Yagira Yuya, Yoshizawa Ryo and Nakamura Kankuro, reprise their characters, while Miura Haruma (Attack on Titan), Tsutsumi Shinichi (The Emperor in August), Katsuji Ryo (The Vancouver Asahi) and Kubota Masataka (Tokyo Ghoul) join in new roles. Again directed by Fukada Yuichi, Gintama 2 delivers both comedy and conspiracy by drawing from the manga's Shinsengumi Crisis Arc and episodes involving the shogun.
With business going slow and funds running dry, Sakata Gintoki (Oguri Shun), Shinpachi (Suda Masaki) and Kagura (Hashimoto Kanna) pick up random part-time jobs to earn money for rent. But everywhere they go, they keep running into the police chief (Tsutsumi Shinichi) and shogun (Katsuji Ryo), who is touring the neighborhood incognito, and creating embarrassing situations. Meanwhile, the Shinsengumi police unit experiences an unprecedented internal crisis when vice-commander Hijikata Toshiro (Yagira Yuya) mysteriously turns into an otaku and gets forced out by ambitious upstart Ito (Miura Haruma), who is part of a bigger conspiracy.
BLEACH (2018) (Blu-ray) (Normal Edition) (Japan Version) Blu-ray Region All
| Sugisaki Hana
| Yoshizawa Ryo
| Nagasawa Masami
One of the most popular and well-known manga properties in Japan and internationally, Kubo Tite's best-selling action fantasy manga Bleach ended its 15-year run in August 2016. Two years later, its highly anticipated live-action film arrives under the direction of Sato Shinsuke, who helmed the Gantz and Library Wars live-action adaptations. Fukushi Sota, one of Japan's hottest young actors and the hero of manga adaptations like As the Gods Will and Laughing Under the Clouds, steps into the role of substitute soul reaper Kurosaki Ichigo. New-generation actress Sugisaka Hana (Blade of the Immortal) co-stars as Kuchiki Rukia, the soul reaper who changes his life.
Bleach begins with the fateful meeting between high school student Ichigo, who has the ability to see ghosts, and soul reaper Rukia who brings departed souls from the living world to Soul Society. During a dangerous battle with corrupted soul-eating spirits called Hollows, the injured Rukia breaks shinigami code and transfers her powers to Ichigo, setting him on the dangerous and extraordinary path of becoming a soul reaper.
Besides Fukushi Sota and Sugisaka Hana, Bleach includes Yoshizawa Ryo (Gintama) as Ishida Uryu, a descendant of the Quincy line of Hollow hunters; rocker Miyavi (Unbroken) as Kuchiki Byakuya, Rukia's elder brother and a soul reaper captain of noble lineage; theater star Saotome Taichi as Abarai Renji, the soul reaper tasked to bring Rukia back to Soul Society; Tanabe Seiichi (Happy Flight) as mysterious shop owner Urahara Kisuke; and Mano Erina ( The Next Generation Patlabor) and Koyanagi Yu (Crows Zero) as Ichigo's close friends Inoue Orihime and Sado Yasutora, respectively. Eguchi Yosuke and Nagasawa Masami also appear in the film as Ichigo's parents.
