I was quite skeptical about this piece of news when I first heard about it. However, after viewing this 40 second trailer, I’ve realized that this possibly has all the ingredients of a very epic movie.
And they also have an all star cast:
- Sato Takeru as Himura Kenshin
- Takei Emi as Kamiya Kaoru
- Eguchi Yosuke as Saitou Hajime
- Kagawa Teruyuki as Takeda Kanryuu
- Kikkawa Kouji as Udou Jine
- Aoki Munetaka as Sagara Sanosuke
- Taketo Tanaka as Myoujin Yahiko
- Aoi Yuu as Takani Megumi
Although I have to admit, this is rather confusing. Saitou Hajime was introduced during Shishio Makoto’s arc, not Udou Jine’s. Further more, Takeda Kanryuu is the antagonist of Takani Megumi’s arc which was also before Shishio’s. This leaves me to wonder how they’ll add Saitou to the mix… Could this movie’s ending be left hanging as an intro for a second movie? There have been talks of Warner Bros. Japan wanting to turn this into a series…
Now I can’t wait for 2012.
