I’m a big fan of anime and manga series. I’ve watched the cartoon series of  KENSHIN HIMURA back in my college days. Love the action scenes with his reverse blade sword (sakabatou).

And the time is over for a cartoon character; the movie now come to life with the Japanese actor  Takeru Sato portray as Kenshin Himura while Emi Takei as Kaoru Kamiya.

I’ve watched the premier night last December 2 at SM North Edsa. I’m not surprise to what I saw – the line for the movie is until the car park area outside the Cinema 7. Wow! So that’s anime is all about 🙂 I mean people love anime and they love it too as a movie.

Kenshin Himura, also known throughout the anime as Hitokiri Battousai (Battousai the Manslayer) or Himura the Battousai is the main character of the anime series Rurouni Kenshin. His original name was Shinta. He is reknowed and deadly assasin (hitokiri) of the ISHIN SHISHI during the Japanese revolution of 1867-1868.

After the revolution against the TOKUGAWA SHOGUNATE, Kenshin has decided to atone for his past by becoming a wanderer. Vowing never to help others who need of his protection.

About 10 years into the new Meiji era, while in Tokyo, our wanderer comes upon a young woman, Kamiya Kaoru, in need of his assistance, which he gives willingly.

He forms several friendships at Kaoru’s domicile and finds himself having new adventures and tribulations in the effort to protect those he cares about.

RUROUNI KENSHIN will open in cinemas nationwide on December 5.

    I can’t wait to watch this movie I am a big fan of Samurai X. I hope that the excitement in the cartoon version is eclipsed by this Movie.
