TOKYO — Hulu Japan will stream “Crow’s Blood,” a six-
part horror/suspense mini-series with “Saw” series
director Darren Lynn Bousman serving as executive
producer. It will be online from July.
The original story is by Yasushi Akimoto, best-known
as the Svengali behind a succession of popular girl idol
groups. Mayu Watanabe, member of AKB48 , will star in
the series, as will Sakura Miyawaki, who belongs to
sister ensemble HKT48, from Fukuoka.
The story starts after a mysterious transfer student
(Miyawaki), arrives at all-girls’ high school. Strange
happenings occur that upend the lives of other students
including Watanabe’s sweet-spirited character. Hulu has
not yet revealed plans for the international release of the
show.

j-horror was one of the biggest crazes the horror world
was witness to when films like Ju-on and Ringu made
their way overseas in the late 90’s and early 2000’s.
And while the fad of remaking those titles may have
died off, it didn’t stop us from being fascinated with the
films from that part of the world, leading us to find and
embrace the horror that Korea, Thailand, Japan, China,
and more, had to offer.
Now, the “East” and the “West” are colliding into
something truly special in the form of “Crow’s Blood “, a
brand new six-episode horror/suspense TV show that
brings together some of the biggest names from both
the U.S. and Japan. The series is being executively
produced by Darren Lynn Bousman ( Saw III, 11-11-11 ).
Bousman tells BD, “Living in Japan these last three
months has been such an incredible and surreal
experience. Being a fan of J-horror and now being able
to construct a Horror TV show with them has been
something of a dream come true. ”
Producers Bousman and Sean E DeMott will be working
with super group music celebrities AKB 48‘s Mayu
Watanabe and Sakura Miyawaki. The series will be
directed by Ryo Nishimura with the opening two
episodes and the finale being co-directed by Ryo and
Joe White. The series was written by Yasushi Akimoto
and Clint Sears.
About “Crow’s Blood”:
20 years have passed since the first clone sheep
Dolly was born.
With regenerative medical techniques evolutionally
advancing over those years, regeneration of human
organs, which was thought to be impossible, has
become a reality.
While regeneration offers a broad range of
possibilities, human beings are now trying to play
God, to “re-create life.”
When we lose someone we love, are we allowed to
regenerate their life or even bodies? “Crow’s Blood”
is an entertainment drama which aims to tackle
this controversial subject.
It will be an ultimate horror/suspense drama with a
mixture of love, blood and mystery taking place in
modern Japanese society.
