First Still From Live-Action 'RUROUNI KENSHIN' Sequel

Following the news that "Death Note" actor Tatsuya Fujiwara had joined the cast of the "Rurouni Kenshin" sequel as Shishio Makoto comes our first look at returning hero Himura Kenshin as played by Takeru Satoh via the star's official website. Next summer will see not one but two sequel films, "Rurouni Kenshin - The Kyoto Fire" and "Rurouni Kenshin - The Legend's Conclusion." The two sequels will look to adapt the "Kyoto Arc" of the original manga from Nobuhiro Watsuki. On his site, Fujiwara writes, "that the sequels will have twice as much as action as the first film." He adds that the cast and crew are working twice as hard this time around.

Loved the Samurai X and Rurouni Kenshin animated movies. Never really got into the show enough to watch every ep, but this movie? Oh yeah, I'm 100% all in.
