posted on by Crystalyn Hodgkins
Actor Naohito Fujiki (Hotaru no Hikari's Seiichi Takano, GTO: Great Teacher Onizuka's Ryuji Saejima) will make his debut as a voice actor in the upcoming Hunter × Hunter: Phantom Rouge film. Fujiki will play the villain Omokage, the member of the Phantom Troupe with the No. 4 spider tattoo.
Voice actress Aya Hirano and actress Umika Kawashima will also voice original characters in the film.
The film will center around the character Kurapika, who became a hunter to seek revenge on the Phantom Troupe for the massacre of his clan. The film is based on an unpublished story manga creator Yoshihiro Togashi wrote around 10 years ago. Togashi will publish a two-chapter prequel manga to the film in the December 3 and December 10 issues of Shueisha's Weekly Shonen Jump magazine.
The film, the first in the Hunter x Hunter franchise, will open in theaters in Japan on January 12, 2013.
