Live-Action RUROUNI KENSHIN Sequels Unleash New 5-Minute Promo

The footage shown from Rurouni Kenshin: Kyoto Inferno may be the closest we ever come to seeing Takehiko Inoue's Vagabond fight where Miyamoto Musashi takes down 70 swordsman of the Yoshioka-ryu dojo. Check out the awesome swordplay after the jump.

Check out five minutes of footage from the upcoming live-action Rurouni Kenshin squels, Rurouni Kenshin: Kyoto Inferno and Rurouni Kenshin: The Legend Ends. Kick back and watch the Battousai do his thing!

Next summer's live-action Rurouni Kenshin sequels, "Rurôni Kenshin: The Great Kyôto Fire arc" and "Rurôni Kenshin: The End of a Legend arc" 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. Takeru 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. Rurouni Kenshin: Kyoto Taika-hen (Rurouni Kenshin: The Great Kyoto Fire) will be released in Japan theaters this autumn, on August 1st. The third film, Rurouni Kenshin: Densetsu no Saigo-hen (Rurouni Kenshin: The End of a Legend) will be released just a month later, on September 13th.

A true adaptation. And that song played in the BG makes the footage THAT much better. I can't wait.

Seriously the first film is the best live action adaptation of an anime I've seen. I loved the series as a kid and the manga and I'm glad that these films are actually being made. I really want to see Japan tackle a Yu Yu Hakusho live action adaptation.

No blood cause Kenshin use a reverse blade katana, a sakabato.

What is a 'reverse katana' and how does that prevent blood from flying out of people's bodies when they get hacked and slashed to death?

Umm...a reserve blade does not cut. The main fighting edge is dull and not sharp, reverse of what a normal blade is. Kenshin made a vow not to use his blade to kill again, rather uses it to protect people. No cutting blood and killing people, just disabling them.

I am as stoked about this film as any other film out there! The first was was the best manga/anime live adaption for me. No contest.
