Takuya Kimura, the Japanese actor who puts a face to the protagonist of Judgment Y Lost Judgment, could be the protagonist of a real image television series as reported by Nikkan Gendai. Although not yet official, the information speaks of an action series tentatively titled as Sabakarezaru -the original title of the sequel is Lost Judgment: Sabakarezaru Kioku-; another source also speaks of a film adaptation.
Kimura is a star in Japan who in his youth participated in the band Smap and since then has appeared in many programs, series and movies, including 2046 by Wong Kar Wai o howl’s moving castle, Studio Ghibli’s animated film.
Nikkan Gendai menciona, segn Kotaku, that the actor would be involved in the adaptation while having no interest in participating in the third season of the crime series BG Personal Bodyguard, which debuted in 2018.
Have the image problems between the actor and Sega been resolved?
Kimura participating in this series is a bit of a surprise, because it had been rumored that Sega had no interest in continuing with him in Judgment because his agency prevents the launch of the saga on PC, something that Sega wanted to have in its plans -as it does with Yakuza-. Perhaps this is part of the agreement between Sega and the actor’s representatives: a series and a movie in exchange for the release of PC versions.
Lost Judgment was launched last September and again offered us an action adventure with crimes. “Lost Judgment is a brave, daring and relevant game both for the issues it deals with and for the way it does it, but it is also an outstanding adventure capable of giving us some fun and intense combat, an exciting story from start to finish, lots of quality optional content, a first-class audiovisual section and some very elaborate and tremendously addictive mini-games,” we said in the analysis.
