The first installment in the two-part adaptation of Kyoto Arc from Nobuhiro Watsuki Rurouni Kenshin manga looks quite epic. There's a host of new characters - allies and foe alike, that fans have been very anxious to see. And from the looks of things, director Keishi Ōtomo will not disappoint. The first film, Rurôni Kenshin: The Great Kyôto Fire arc, will be released August 1st. Part 2, Rurôni Kenshin: The End of a Legend arc, will follow a month later on September 13th. Keep your fingers crossed for a limited theatrical release here in the US.
