Sengoku Basara Wardrobe Malfunction

The challenges of adapting a video game or animated series into a live action production are much the same in Japan as they are in the west.  The primary reason for the difficulty of this transition is that the aesthetic rules that apply to stylized art do not equally apply to the real world, resulting in a disquieting ‘wrongness’ when a direct translation is attempt.

Such a ‘wrongness’ can be seen in these costume designs for the upcoming Japanese TV series Sengoku Basara: Moonlight Party, based on the video game and anime series.
