As a reminder, Sakurai was originally the Medicine Seller in Mononoke. However, due to his adultery scandal, Hiroshi Kamiya replaced him. This is due to the plot of the movie focusing on the plight and struggles of women in Ooku. Considering the circumstances in Sakurai’s personal life and the themes of the film, the studio decided to recast him.

The new cast members in the Mononoke: Karakasa movie, as well as their previous roles, are:

  • Hiramoto: Jun Fukuyama (Joker in Persona 5, Lelouch in Code Geass, Lawrence in Spice and Wolf)
  • Mizorogi Hokuto: Kenjiro Tsuda (Kaiba in Yu-Gi-Oh, Dainsleif in Genshin Impact, Nanami in Jujustu Kaisen)
  • Saburoumaru: Yuki Kaji (Eren in Attack on Titan, Meliodas in The Seven Deadly Sins, and Todoroki in My Hero Academia)
  • Sakashita: Daisuke Hosomi (Professor Fudo in Yu-Gi-Oh 5D’s, O.D. in Gatchaman, and Inoue in Tsuritama)
  • Tenshi: Miyu Irino (Cyno in Genshin Impact, Sora/Vanitas in Kingdom Hearts, Jintan in Anohana)

The plot of the Mononoke movie will feature the Medicine Seller investigating Ooku. It seems that the women are conducting a strange ritual every night. As well, a very important ritual, Oomochi-zuki, was delayed and someone disappeared under mysterious circumstances. It will combine spiritual fantasy, mystery, and historical fiction.

Mononoke is available for streaming on services like Crunchyroll and the film Mononoke: Karakasa will air on July 26, 2024.
