The official website for Sengoku Basara -Moonlight Party-, a live-action TV drama adaptation of Capcom’s videogame franchise, opened earlier today, giving us a first look at the cast members in their respective character costumes.

That is, if you can access the website..

Although the site went live just a couple of hours ago, it’s already been brought down due to overwhelming traffic.

Sengoku Basara is a pretty big deal in Japan, after all, striking a chord with both the male and female demographics – guys like it for the action, and female fans love the cool characters.

But fret not, Otanews took screen captures of the cast members in costume from the site before it went down.

And if you’d like a closer look at the cast, CinemaToday also has a photo gallery full of Moonlight Party pictures (link at the end of this post).

Check out Kasuga’s costume (above, played by Kyoko Ochiai), which resembles the one Juliet Starling wears in Lollipop Chainsaw. Kyoko Ochiai sure as hell isn’t getting into PAX in that outfit.

Sengoku Basara -Moonlight Party- will be broadcasted on MBS in Japan every Thursday at 1.25AM (Wednesday 25:25 hours) beginning July 12.
