Fuji TV began streaming an English-subtitled preview for the live-action Nobunaga Concerto series on Monday. The video features the drama's main theme song, "Ashioto ~Be Strong" (Sound of Footsteps ~Be Strong) by Mr.Children. The trailer includes the same content as the previous video streamed last month.
Shun Oguri (Lupin III, Captain Harlock, Detective Conan, Hana Yori Dango, Space Brothers) plays the title warlord and his modern counterpart Saburō in the live-action series and also in the film. Kou Shibasaki (Dororo's titular character, Ōoku: The Inner Chambers's Yoshimune) plays the show's heroine Kichō, who is Oda Nobunaga's wife, and Takayuki Yamada (Crows Zero, Densha Otoko, Gantz) plays Kinoshita Tōkichirō/Toyotomi Hideyoshi. The cast also includes Osamu Mukai, Daisuke Fujigaya, Kaho, Naoto Fujiki, Gaku Hamada, and Masahiro Takashima.
The series premiered as part of Fuji TV's 55th anniversary project on October 13. The Nobunaga Concerto anime premiered in July, and Crunchyroll streamed the series as it aired in Japan.
