Although we’ll never get a proper release here in the states, I can’t stop covering the Rurouni Kenshin films. After seeing the first one, I read through the manga it’s based off of and I can’t wait to see it in action somehow. The second film, Kyoto Inferno (released on August 1st) was actually Japan’s biggest live action opening this year netting somewhere around $800 million yen. Good thing the third film looks to close out the action nicely.
Rurouni Kenshin: The Legend Ends opens in Japan September 13 and stars the kid from Kamen Rider: Den-O, Takeru Satoh, and that one kid from Battle Royale, Tatsuya Fujiwara.
