Rurouni Kenshin 2 Final Movies (2020)

Recommended Posts

"Warner Bros. Japan announced on Friday that two new live-action film adaptations of Nobuhiro Watsuki's Rurouni Kenshin manga will premiere in summer 2020.  The adaptations mark the final chapter of the live-action film series.  The first part covers Juji Kizu no Nazo (Mystery of the Cross-Shaped Scar), and the second part is Saikyo no Teki - Enishi (Most Terrifying Enemy - Enishi)."  Takeru Satoh returns as Himura Kenshin and Keishi Otomo will direct.  The official Japanese website is http://wwws.warnerbros.co.jp/rurouni-kenshin2020/   News from https://www.animenewsnetwork.com/news/2019-04-11/rurouni-kenshin-gets-final-2-live-action-films-in-summer-2020/.145614  

"The 'Final Chapter' will adapt the manga's final 'Jinchu' arc, including the episodes also told in the 1999 OVA 'Tsuioku-hen/Trust & Betrayal' about the past story of Kenshin as Hitokiri Battousai during the final years of the Bakumatsu era, explaining the origins of his cross-shaped scar.  The official title for each part will be announced at a later date.  The shooting already began in November 2018, and is scheduled to last for seven months until May 2019 in various locations across Japan, including Kyoto, Nara, SHiga, Mie, Hyogo, Kumamoto, Hiroshima, Tochigi, Saitama, and Shizuoka."  From https://www.crunchyroll.com/anime-news/2019/04/11/rurouni-kenshin-live-action-film-to-return-with-two-part-final-chapter-in-summer-2020

This announcement has me more excited that most martial arts movie news. I love the original trilogy, so to get two more films is pretty much a dream come true.

Always loved the manga series (and its current continuation), and the first trilogy, so this news has me stoked.

I'm glad Takeru Satoh is coming back as Kenshin. He was excellent in the trilogy. Can't wait to see how these two come out.

I'm confident that these will be great.
