Sorry guys, no updates yet, just keeping this thread alive

Here is a very random youtube of the actor who is playing Kenshin - Sato Takeru: http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature...&v=R2L0HwqN04Y

Not related to kenshin at all, but just gives you an idea of the actor who's playing him and a slight insight on his mannerism (he is the dude who walks in the door)

Don't worry. The updates will come hard and fast, I'll still keep everyone posted as they do.. my most anticipated movie TBH

It's official.. Saito Hajime will be in the movie!!

At least it isn't one of those movies where they use the property's title and then don't even have any of the characters

This movie is officially made for me now that Saito has been confirmed..

The actors name is Eguchi Yosuke:



I hope he grows the front bangs for the role.. I'm sure he will, as they're aiming to be as close to source material as possible


(if you recall from the beginning of the anime series - Udon Jine)

Also, here is another interesting piece of info:

"...Kagawa Teruyuki will be “Takeda Kanryu” who is a cold-blooded industrialist. One of the most memorable scenes of this character would be where Takeda shoots the Gadling gun at his mansion, and it will be shown in the movie."



i.e. confirmation of an epic scene straight from the anime, remaining faithful to kenshin.. I have a feeling this movie will be incredible

The cast have expressed their sentiment to give the audience an idea of Samurai/Japanese culture/mentality through the movie (which is what the manga/anime did extremely well)

I for one can't wait to see their outfits

Just some more info on the anime.. apprently it is not a series, sorry, but a two part OVA (though I believe they will be more lengthy than your typical OVA).

"According to ANN, it will depict the battle of Kenshin Himura and Makoto Shishio and will be told from the point of view of the Oniwabanshuu ninja Miso Makimachi. Most voice cast (Seiyuu) as well as the director will be the same as the old TV series, Animation by Studio Deen. It is a 2-part OVA movie and the first chapter is coming this December, leaving the BD/DVD release date unknown"





This whole re-visiting Kenshin thing could bring the franchise back to life though (in terms of future production).. The OVA should be amazing.
