Two Final Live-Action RUROUNI KENSHIN Films Announced
Roughly a year ago, Nobuhiro Watsuki, the creator of Rurouni Kenshin, was arrested for charges involving child pornography. The series continued in the wake of the issue, which has created a lot of debate and conversation among fans, and now there’s some news regarding the series that has fans talking again. Warner Bros. Japan has made the announcement that they will make two more live-action films to adapt the final manga arc. Keishi Otomo will be returning as director of the final films, and Takeru Satoh will return to lead the film as Kenshin Himura.
The final arc of the manga focused on Kenshin back when he was known as Battousai and explains how he got his famous cross-shaped scar. Not much is known about the adaptation in terms of casting or even titles, but the films are currently expected to release in summer 2020.
The live-action Rurouni Kenshin films have been very well received by fans and critics as some of the best live-action adaptations of an anime. Are you excited to hear that they’re making more?
