Samurai X: Rurouni Kenshin

The most awaited anime to be rendered a live-action movie: Samurai X! I've always been a fan of this anime eversince. I watched all of its episodes and even the OVAs. It has everything! Comedy, drama, action, friendship, revenge, and strong virtues.

There were already rumours about the film that they had no plans of showing it internationally. But that would be unfair right?? Good thing that they gave in and allowed it to be shown in selected cinemas and SM was lucky enough to get the rights. At first, it was rumoured again that it'll just be shown for a week, but since ratings were so high, they had to extend it.
But we made sure and got tickets for the first showing. December 5, 2012 at 10:00AM.
In 1868, after the end of the Bakumatsu war, the former assassin Kenshin Himura promises to defend those who need without killing and wanders through Japan with a sword with inverted blade during the transition of the samurai age to the New Age. When Kenshin helps the idealistic Kaoru Kamiya from the gangsters of the powerful opium drug lord Kanryuu Takeda that wants her school for his production of opium, Kaoru invites Kenshin to stay in the school. But the drug chemist Megumi Takani escapes from Kanryuu and seeks shelter in the school.
Meanwhile the killer Battosai is murdering police officers and leaving messages attached to their bodies. When the cruel Kanryuu poisons the population to get the school, and Kenshin and the street fighter Sanosuke Sagara join forces to attack their common enemy.

It only covered the first arc of the anime. I hope so that another movie would be filmed for the other arcs. I sure would like to see Aoishi, Misao, and even Shishio in a live-action movie! ^__^
