- The mega-hit comic, CROWS, about feuding high school tough guys, has sold over 32 million copies in its eighty-plus years. This feature length movie version of "CROWS" depicts the never-before-told origins of the story as "Episode Zero". The Suzuran Senior High School for Boys, nicknamed "The School of Crows", is the poorest achieving, most violent school in the country. The students are called "crows" and they band together in factions, battling each other for influence and power. But they all share a common goal... one that has never been reached in the school's history: unification. No one faction has ever reigned supreme. Oguri plays that role of Genji Takiya, a transfer student who attempts to take over Suzuran Boys High School and is mentored by old boy yakuza Katagiri (Kyosuke Yabe) as he faces off against rival Serizawa (Takayuki Yamada).
