Rurouni Kenshin (2012) movie trailer

English subbed Japanese trailer for Rurouni Kenshin, a live action adaptation from the popular namesake anime/manga. The film is scheduled for August release.

The story revolves around Himura Kenshin – once a fearsome assassin in wartime era who turned into a wanderer who helped to maintain peace and help the needed once the war was over. I’m not a fan of live adapations from a manga/anime, but this looks ok.

The movie stars Takeru Satoh, Emi Takei, Munetaka Aoki and Yuu Aoi. Yosuke Eguchi, one of my favourite Japanese actors, plays a minor role as Kenshin’s old foe.
