Live Action adaptation of the Manga of the same title. Rurouni Kenshin (The Wanderer Kenshin) tells the story of Himura Kenshin, a former hitokiri (manslayer/assasin) of utmost skill, that played a major part in the Meiji restoration, who in the turning point of the war simply walked away. His travels lead him to Tokyo in the 11th year of the Meiji era, where he befriends a female Kendo master, a former thief, a brawler and a doctor all with their own secrets. Together they fight off the enemies surfacing from the dark past that Kenshin cannot escape.
My rating: ★★★★★★★★☆☆ 8/10
Rurouni Kenshin is my favourite manga/anime ever, and I must say I was truly enchanted by this excellent adaptation. The acting it’s just perfect, especially Sato Takeru in the lead role. The photography it’s outstanding, and the soundtrack is a master piece of it’s own. And my favourite part, brilliant fighting sequences!
