Lost in Translation
The Japanese website for Gegege no Kitarō: Sennen Noroi Uta (Gegege no Kitarō: The Thousand-Year-Curse Song), the live-action film sequel based on Shigeru Mizuki's supernatural manga, has posted a teaser trailer on Saturday. Eiji Wentz plays Kitarō, an inhuman boy who stands at the uneasy divide between humans and yōkai (supernatural creatures). The second movie deals with a forbidden love between a human man and a nure-onna (enchantress) that has lasted a millennium, and strange occurrences that happen in the present.
