Rurouni Kenshin

So we watched Rurouni Kenshin today and homg it's so epic! And I'm totally going to switch to geek/otaku mode and reiterate how amazing the fight scenes, the whole cinematography and the casting were.

Takeru Sato really delivered. I had doubts about his believability as Kenshin when news of him being selected to play the lead role came out. I mean this is the comparatively fledgling actor who played second lead alongside Mizushima Hiro in Mei-Chan no Shitsuji a couple of years ago. And now he gets to play lead roles? Just look at him in BECK! He even learned how to play the guitar. What dedication! It helps a lot that he is a huge fan of Samurai X because he absolutely wanted to do the anime justice.

It's so nice to find non-JE actors snag the lead spots. I'm a fan of Kame, Yamapi, Toma, Jun, Junpei (the money-makers of JE these days) but they are too overexposed sometimes. There are just some actors that fit in the role perfectly like Kenichi Matsuyama as L and Oguri Shun as Shinichi Kudo. This time it's Takeru as Kenshin Himura!

Okay enough fan girling. <3<3<3 Have you guys seen the movie already?

  1. I didn't even know they were making this into a live film!! I never hopped on the Rurouni Kenshin bandwagon when it was popular but it seems like something I would enjoy... I'll have to check it out now since I love samurai anime/shows!! :)

  5. Hello,
    Nice. I really got so much fun. Great.
    I visit your blog from time to time and I enjoy your posts. It also keeps me current with what’s in style.
    Recently I was doing some SEO work for our site ( www.fiorehosiery.com ) and I was wondering if you would be interested to exchange Alexa reviews. It might help with ranking.
