One of the best movies of 2012!!! And also, the most greatest Anime live action movie adaptation to date!!!

Hope the sequel will exceed the first movie.

I completely agree. I was really impressed with the first live action Rurouni Kenshin movie. It was very well done and was a good adaptation.

I am definitely looking forward to this sequel.

Still don't know why this wasn't pushed in the U.S.

Probably cause Kenue's not playing the white savior.
