As mentioned here last week, Taguchi Tomorowo's second directorial effort "Shikisoku Zenereishon" is currently shooting in Kyoto and on Tuesday Stylejam held a press conference to introduce the rest of the cast. Lead character Jun is to be played by minor punk band Kuroneko Chelsea vocalist Watanabe Daichi, who auditioned successfully from a field of 2000. He'll be joined by fellow warblers Kishida Shigeru of the band Quruli (who supplied the soundtracks for Inudo Isshin's "Josee, the Tiger and the Fish" and Yamashita Nobuhiro's "Ramblers") and Gingnang Boyz' Mineta Kazunobu, who played protagonist Nakajima in "Iden & Tity", as well as model/actress Usuda Asami. Cinematopics also has Ishibashi Anna ("Your Friend") listed, although no mention was made of her on Stylejam's blog.
