Two new stills from the live-action Rurouni Kenshin sequels have been revealed through Kenshin Himura actor Takeru Satohv's official blog. Not one but TWO sequels are set for release next summer titled, "Rurouni Kenshin: The Great Kyoto Fire" and "Rurouni Kenshin: The End of a Legend". The two sequels will look to adapt the "Kyoto Arc" of the original manga from Nobuhiro Watsuki. Keishi Ōtomo returns to direct both feature films for Studio Swan.

Satoh plays Kenshin Himura, Emi Takei returns as Kaoru Kamiya, Yusuke Iseya plays Aoshi Shinomori, Munetaka Aoki plays Sanosuke Sagara, Yuu Aoi co-stars as Megumi Takani, Ryunosuke Kamiki plays Sōjirō Seta, Yosuke Eguchi plays Hajime Saitō, Tatsuya Fujiwara plays Makoto Shishio, the venerable min Tanaka plays Nenji Kashiwazaki/Okina, Kazufumi Miyazawa plays Toshimichi Ōkubo, Yukiyoshi Ozawa plays Hirobumi Itō, Kaito Ōyagi plays Yahiko Myōjin, Maryjun Takahashi plays Yumi Komagata and Ryosuke Miura plays Chō Sawagejō. Watsuki's original manga began in 1994 and recently concluded its non-concurrent run this past June in Jump Square.
