Most of anime and manga fans should know this title, Rurouni Kenshin aka Samurai X. Written and illustrated by Nobuhiro Watsuki, the story is about samurai in Meiji era with a deadly assassin Himura Kenshin (Hitokin Battōsai) as main protagonist. After Bakumatsu war, Kenshin meets head of a dojo Kamiya Kaoru while travelling whole Japan. Both, along with other friends like Sagara Sanosuke, follow full action plots based on old and new Kenshin’s enemies. In the end, Kenshin and Kaoru get happy ending with marriage and given a son Himura Kenji.
Now this legend is rumoured to receive live action movie adaptation and without no doubt every single of fans will wait the release and judge which worthy (Japanese) actor to play Kenshin role. Until now, there is one actor identified. He is *jreng jreng* Takeru Satoh.
Lol wut? you mean kamen rider Den-O ? yes wat else. If it becomes true, you will see he has a big “X” sign in his face, swinging katana around and stabbing slicing people. Quite hard work, as it’s Momotaros who did all of those in the past ;D
Me 8-9 years ago watched its TV anime (and Sakura Taisen), childhood moment. All of its ED songs are good, especially “It’s Gonna Rain” and I love the art design. Sagara is my fav char along with Kaoru and ShiShio (Makoto). Hope it’ll be awesome~
Kamiya Kaoru, the main ehroine, will be played by Emi Takei. The adaptation is scheduled for Summer 2012 release.
