New Images From the Live Action ‘Rurouni Kenshin’ Movie Surface

Rurouni Kenshin fans got their first look at Japan’s live action film last week in the pages of Jump Square magazine with a single image of star Takeru Satoh holding Kenshin’s signature sakabato reverse-bladed katana. The haunted former “Hitokiri Battōsai” assassin needn’t roam the blogosphere alone now that the film’s staff have released five additional images from the film showing off Satoh and co-star Emi Takei in her Kaoru Kamiya role. Takei and Satoh’s movie looks seem to capture manga creator Nobuhiro Watsuki’s style pretty effectively — especially since Kenshin’s cross-shaped facial scar goes for a more theatrical than “realistic” aesthetic. Rurouni Kenshin is set to arrive in Japan on August 25. See new images from the live action Rurouni Kenshin film after the jump.
