The Rurouni Kenshin Movie Is Getting Rurounier All the Time

I don’t know how many of you guys care about Japan’s upcoming live-action Rurouni Kenshin movie (based on the manga and anime) but man, if you do, you’re in good shape. It looks fantastic, and I say this as a person who’s only seen a bit of the anime. The comedy scenes look exactly like they did in the anime, but the action seems to be exponentially more awesome, and that ain’t bad. I’m genuinely looking forward to Viz releasing this in two U.S. theaters before letting it slink out to DVD.

And in other anime news (unrelated, but I know most of you have a limited tolerance for anime coverage): the director of Redline is making a new Lupin the 3rd TV series? FUCK AND YES, KIDS. (Via Anime News Network)
