The much anticipated Rurouni Kenshin movie made its way to Philippines theaters on December 5, 2012. Thousands of fans have already been waiting for this to finally happen as the screening date constantly got pushed to later dates for months. And damn, it was worth the wait.
Being a Samurai X fan since high school, the movie was like a dream come true. Every detail of the movie feels like it was freshly grabbed right from the anime itself. No fan will be disappointed with the movie since you will not be expecting any mistakes that Hollywood usually makes with their own rendition of popular animes/games.
The actors were able to relive their characters the way we watched it in the series. Actor Takeru Sato was surely perfect for the role. From being the bloodthirsty Battousai the Slasher to the kind and sweet wanderer Kenshin Himura, he totally nailed it.
The DVD becomes available on December 26th. So if you haven't watched the movie yet (you can catch it on SM Cinemas til the 19th), be sure to watch it right away! Or, get the DVD at least. ;)
