Japan did an amazing job with the Rurouni Kenshin live-action movie series and now there’s another similar work coming in Summer of 2017 that looks promising so far thanks to a fan approved casting.

The supporting cast also has big names in the mix with Nagasawa Masami, Okada Masaki, Mura Tsuyoshi, Yagira Yuya, Yoshizawa Ryo, Nanao, and many more. I love the first batch of lead character posters and the teaser trailer mainly for how smexy Shun looks rocking the silver hair and the samurai intensity. Continue reading
