Born on January 1853 in Tokyo Prefecture, Shinomori Aoshi was raised as a ninja of the Oniwabanshu who gained the position of Okashira at the age of fifteen. He is a very quiet and intelligent individual who always thinks before he acts. The creator of the series, Watsuki Nobuhiro, said that he based Aoshi’s character on the historical figure Hijikata Toshizo, the Deputy Leader of the Shinsengumi.
This is the official photo of Japanese actor, Iseya Yusuke, who will be playing the role of Aoshi in the second live-action movie “Rurouni Kenshin: The Great Kyoto Fire Arc”! I’m pretty excited to see this movie, and I’m sure Iseya-san will do very well in this film! Thanks to Eric for sending this in!
