The long wait is over, Samurai X fans! Movie producer Warner Bros. announced that two more Kenshin Himura manga live action adaptations, following the blockbuster Rurouni Kenshin 1, will be released this year.
I have been a fan of Samurai X (manga and anime) since 1998 so the experience of having Battousai come to life is truly ecstatic for me!
The first installment of the sequels, which is entitled “The Great Kyoto Fire Arc,” will be shown on cinemas this August 1. The last part of the series, “The Kyoto Inferno- A Legend Ends Arc,” will be released on September 13.
Tatsuya Fujiwara, whose acting prowess was highlighted in the movies “Death Note” as Light Yagami and in “Battle Royale” as Shuya Nanahara, will play the role of Battousai’s ultimate nemesis, Shishio.
The young and fresh Emi Takei takes the character of Battousai’s apple of the eye, Kaoru.
Meanwhile, Japanese superstar Takeru Sato reprised his role as the mighty Kenshin Himura in both sequels. Yours truly is again fan-girling to death! ❤ 😀
Unleash that Hiten Mitsurugi-ryu, Kenshin!
ORO? TADAIMA DE GOZARU!
