2nd Ōoku Film's Teaser Centers on Female Shogun's Harem Member
Japanese production company Asmik-Ace Entertainment streamed a 30-second teaser trailer for the Ōoku: ~Eien~ Emonnosuke-Tsunayoshi Hen live-action film last Wednesday.
The film adapts volumes 4 to 6 of the award-winning Ōoku: The Inner Chambers manga by Fumi Yoshinaga. The story take place in an alternate-history version of medieval Japan, in which a bizarre disease has dwindled the male population. This has led to a matriarchal society where women outnumber men by 4 to 1. The shogun and de facto ruler of Japan keeps her own harem of men, or Ōoku.
