Movie adaptation of Inuyashiki staring Kamen Rider Den-O‘s Takeru Sato wins prestigious award.

Earlier this month at the Brussels International Fantastic Film Festival, the live-action adaptation of Hiroya Oku’s manga Inuyashiki won the Golden Raven award at the event’s International Competition. The film, which was announced back in December just before the finale of the anime aired, will begin screening in Japanese theaters starting on April 20, 2018.

The story revolves around a down on his luck salaryman, played by Noritake Kinashi, and a psychopathic student, played by Takeru Sato. The two come to odds with one another after they are involved in an unearthly accident which results in both men being remodeled and given extraordinary abilities.

Takeru Sato is best known for portraying Ryotaro Nogami in 2007’s Kamen Rider Den-O during its initial run, including two spin-off movies. He has also garnered fame for his starring roles in BECK, the Rurouni Kenshin trilogy, and numerous other drama series.

The 11 episode anime adaptation of the series is currently available for streaming through Amazon Prime. No word has been given if the film will be licensed for stateside release as of this article.
