Rurouni Kenshin (Live Action Film Adaptation)
Well, technically it’s not the anime series, but it is about the movie so it could go for Tuesday Review Tyme, but I chose anime since it is made from the anime series.
So basically, a while ago I talked about that Rurouni Kenshin would be made into a movie in Japan. Well, it was a big success, so big that it might be coming to the USA. Which is great since I have been dying to see it. Rurouni Kenshin is my all time favorite anime series since 2001 when I first heard of it. And it hasn’t changed at all, it’ll always be number one in my book.
So today I’m talking a bit about an Exhibition of Samurai X as well, I didn’t even know it was going on, but the photo of the figurine is the one that I want and have a link to get it as well. It costs about $100, but it’s worth it. However I don’t want to get the figure until I get a glass case for it as well. There’s a lot of dust here in my city and it will get dusty sitting on my shelf. I don’t get to dust that often, but then again I don’t notice it until it’s all piled up. kekeke.
I also just happened to find a trailer for the movie with English Subtitles. So of course it won’t be in English, but that is fine with me. And also, just let me note that even though I dislike Kaoru Kamiya in the anime series, I think the movie version may…be different for me. Let’s hope so.
