You can’t keep a wandering Samurai down. Take a look at the latest UK trailer for Keishi Ohtomo’s latest actioner “Rurouni Kenshin”, based on the popular manga. Apparently back in feudal Japan Samurais started really young, because the main character here, who is supposed to be a badass swordsman who has been active for the last 10 years or so, looks barely 17. Must be the good wandering Samurai food. And the pop music soundtrack never hurts, I suppose.
Ex-assassin Kenshin Himura (Takeru Satô) has made a vow never to kill again. Now a wandering samurai, Kenshin protects those in hope of reparation. Finding a home at a failing dojo run by Miss Kaoru (Emi Takei), he becomes entangled in a string of murders related to a drug ring run by the ruthless Kanryuu (Teruyuki Kagawa). Rurouni Kenshin follows the story of a man avoiding violence — but will his vow be put to the test when those he loves are threatened by his troubled past?
Starring Takeru Satô, Kenshin Himura, Yû Aoi, Teruyuki Kagawa, Emi Takei, Yôsuke Eguchi, and Saito Hajime.
The Brits get it this October 4th.
