Get Ready To Experience HiGH & LOW: The Story Of S.W.O.R.D. In The First Teaser

Make no mistake with ensemble Japanese pop and dance supergroup, Exile Tribe. They've got some big plans ahead with each of its subgroups partaking between now and next summer for fans around the world, and it dabbles in a little bit of everything in social media, movies, music, television and more.

Welcome to the multi-mediaverse of HiGH & LOW: The Story Of S.W.O.R.D., billed solidly as the world's first comprehensive entertainment project from LDH, inc. in association with NTV. Founding member Exile Hiro executive produces with Kubo Shigeaki directing, and featuring a cast comprised of all its own in what reads like a sprawling and action packed tale akin to elements from films like The Warriors and Crows Zero.

SYNOPSIS:
The legend begins at a certain town that used to be under the rule of a legendary organization called“Mugen”. And within the ranks of that domineering organization were two legendary brothers – the Amamiya Brothers, who were proved to be both brutal and unbeaten during that time. 
Yet somehow the Mugen was suddenly dispersed during a fierce battle… And in the aftermath of the chaos are five organizations that aim to take control of that area. As a result, this area came to be known as SWORD, an acronym attribute to the names of the five organizations. And in that area dwells a gang that goes by the name “G-SWORD”. These 5 organizations include: “Sanno Association” and its second-generation Sanno Shouten brawlers, the alluring white demons known as the “White Rascals”, the dark and brutal “Onija High School”, the ghosts on the ruthless street aka the “RUDE BOYS” and the family of vengeful destroyers of “Daruma Hooligans”. 
These 5 gangs will put their pride on the line as they engage in a fierce battle for dominance! However, the plot thickens… a mysterious group called “MIGHTY WARRIORS” appears. And the question that everyone is asking now is, are they enemies or allies? What fate awaits this town…

The project has already commensed on social media through Instagram ahead of the upcoming late night TV drama airing later this month on NTV with exclusive director's cut viewings on Hulu for all ten half-hour epsiodes. Seugueing into next year, HiGH & LOW: The Story Of S.W.O.R.D. continues onward with the release of a new album and spectacular live concert showcase, with a slate of multi-branching graphic novels, and a feature film set to premiere on July 16, 2016 courtesy of Shochiku.
