A new key visual has been revealed for the upcoming Peace Maker Kurogane movie. The movie has also revealed the first rough character sketches for Hijikata of the Shinsengumi. Furthermore, the subtitle of the movie and the official release date have been announced. Peace Maker Kurogane ~Omou Michi~ will be released in Japanese cinemas on 2 June 2018 while the second movie, Peace Maker Kurogane ~Yuumei~, will come out in fall 2018.
In the teaser visual, we can see a grown-up Ichimura Tetsunosuke. Standing next to him are Yamazaki Susumu and Saito Hajime. Behind him, with a strange smile, we can see Yasuzu Yamato. Dancing around them through the sky are black feathers, and one can feel the fierce fight that is waiting beyond their tense figures. Put it together with Tetsunosuke’s serious face and you have a very stylish key visual.
Below you can see the rough character sketch of Hijikata. He is known as the devil’s second-in-command, and as such, his face is drawn with sharp features. Some thoughtfulness lies behind his eyes. He will be voiced by Joji Nakata, so we are excited to see what performance he will give as Hijikata.
