Photos from OROCHI Press Conference

Here's a short post after yesterday's massive 2007-in-review listapalooza.

Shooting has begun on the film adaptation of Orochi, based on Kazuo Umezu's horror manga series. Here are some pictures of Umezu clowing around with cast and crew on December 19, 2007:

Celebratory OROCHI cake!

Q: Does Umezu always infect others with his unbridled campiness? A: YES!

The film is scheduled for a Japanese release of Winter 2008.

The new movie probably won't be anything great.
But here's hoping.

As long as it's not as bad as Drifting Classroom I don't care and it'll be good exposure for Orochi.

Also, that cake rocks.

Umezu released some sort of message a while back to his fans on his site, I haven't listened to it yet (no speakers). It's a bit late but maybe you wanna link to it or something or offer a translation for people.
