'Blood-Club Dolls' Latest News: Keisuke Minami and Yoshikawa Asami Join Cast of New 'Blood-C' Live-Action Film

Two new cast members have been added to the upcoming Japanese live-action film, "Blood-Club Dolls." The film is the newest entry in Production I.G and CLAMP's "Blood-C" franchise.

Keisuke Minami and Yoshikawa Asami will be joining the cast as Fumito Nanahara and Yoshikawa Asami, respectively. Minami and Asami have previously appeared in the 2015 stage play "Blood-C: The Last Mind," which served as an interquel that linked the timeframes of the 2011 television series and the 2012 anime film "Blood-C: The Last Dark." It featured a new story that also expanded on the events that happened within the timelines of the prequel manga "Blood-C: Demonic Moonlight" and the television series.

Junichi Fujisaku will once again be penning the script, with Shutaro Oku also returning to serve as the director. Oku previously directed both the 2017 live-action film "Asura Girl ~Blood-C Ibun~" and the aforementioned stage play. Fujisaku also wrote the script for the stage play, as well as for the television anime.
