“Bakumatsu Rock Hollow Soul” (幕末Rock 虚魂), the sequel project of Marvelous’ multimedia franchise “Bakumatsu Rock” (幕末Rock), has revealed the visuals and cast for its new characters.
The sequel project is set five years after Sakamoto Ryōma (坂本龍馬) and the others have already overthrown the oppressive Tokugawa Shogunate, which has been having a tight grip on music. The Shogunate has been subjugating people who love rock music by using idols, and brainwashing people with their “Heavenly Songs”. Sakamoto Ryouma then led a revolution with other rockers, to overthrow the shogunate and its idols.
The sequel project includes a new manga by Akira Kazumiya (カズミヤ アキラ), which launches on 26th January for the Comic Polca website. Further information about the other media related to this sequel project will be revealed later.
