Rurouni Kenshin will make its debut in Japanese theatres on August 25th.


Additionally, a follow-up to last year’s PSP fighting game, titled Rurouni Kenshin: Kansen, is being released five days later, on August 30th, in Japan. The game adds new playable characters like Sozo Sagara, Hanya, and Kanryu Takeda. You can find a trailer for that here.

    Shut up and take my money

    Oh snap the oniwaban are in this movie.That was one of my favorite arcs.

    I hope this movie is as good as the live action Goemon movie.

    • Aoshi00

      I had a feeling they could pull this off, the director was pretty famous for the period drama Ryouma-den, so.. and Goemon (Eguchi Yousuke) seems like a badass Saitou too.  Can’t wait to see both live action Phoenix Wright and Rurouni Kenshin on blu-ray..

      Megumi looks a little like a ghost.. but Kaoru is totally spot on, the voice even sounds like Fujitani Miki..

  • Visa Vang

    Looking forward to it!!

    I’ve discovered I can fangirl scream even though I’m male.

    • PoweredByHentai

      That’s nothing.  Once you can perform the Ojou-sama laugh, everything else is easy.


    • Ultimaniacx4

       Yup yup, seeing Saito in the Gatotsu stance did that to me.

    • I know right. RuroKen is my favorite manga series of all time (have yet to start the anime) so seeing this was amazing.

  • Jirin

    I love the prequel OVA, couldn’t get into the series.

    Shouldn’t the X scar look like something that came from a sword injury, and not just something drawn on with marker?

    • Anime10121

       I can kinda understand why you couldnt get into Rurouni kenshin if you started from the beginning, it starts off REALLY slow, and mainly just introduces characters for the first 27 or so eps .  But the show REALLY gets beyond great starting at episode 28-62!  This is called the Kyoto Arc, and its one of the best arc’s I’ve ever seen in an anime.  If you never got into the series I’d recommend you at least try to watch those 30 eps, as they are simply magnificent!

  • Prinnydoom

    Wow……………..that looked amazing hope they localise it ^_____^

  • Anime10121

    This looks FAR better than I initially thought it would!  I’m really hoping this gets released in the west, as it actually looks worthy of a purchase!

  • ZEROthefirst

    At first I was expecting this to be… how do I put it? Cheesy (sadly most live action movies based off games, animes, etc are). After seeing that trailer though I really want to watch the movie when it’s out.

  • Farid Belkacemi

    SOLD ! Just waitin’ for the western release ^_^

  • i am not going to say anything here 

  • Mrgrgr and Unacceptable World

    Considering Ashita no Joe recent live action has shown me once again that Live Action can be quite good there, i really hope that Samurai X here will able to deliver that experience for me again.^_^(Kaiji series also is another experience there.^_^)
