“Taboo Tattoo” Announces Casting For Colonel Sanders And Wiseman

Preparing for the supernatural martial arts series’ July 4th debut, Taboo Tattoo has introduced two members of its support cast. Veterman voice actor Sho Hayami (Macross‘ Maximilian Jenius, Transformers‘ Ultra Manus, Is The Order a Rabbit‘s Chino’s Dad), is the mysterious Wiseman while Tessho Genda  (Sengoku Basara’s Shingen Takeda, Transformers‘ Convoy/Optimus Prime) is American patriot Colonel Sanders. 

 

 

 

 

An English language version of the manga is published by Yen Press, who describe Taboo Tattoo as follows:

 

“By all accounts, middle schooler Seigi is pretty unremarkable except for his martial arts prowess and a desire to protect the weak. But when his good intentions are put to the test by saving an old homeless man from some street thugs, the mysterious man shows his gratitude by…burning a tattoo onto Seigi’s palm?!

 
It turns out, the tattoo is a powerful secret weapon that everyone–including a formidable girl with a tattoo of her own–is after. With his life on the line and his martial arts skills alone no match against super-powered foes, will Seigi be able to unlock the latent potential of his tattoo and live to fight another day?!”
