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.

really cant wait for this... Shishio looks amazing and i really hope he has those fire abilities. I wonder if he will die the same as the anime and i hope his relationship with Komagata Yumi is also like the anime because i thought it was nice to see a bad guy actually love his girl.

i would love for them to develop the final arc of the anime into a live action movie since it was never animated. it was a really good arc and the villain Enishi was really good too
