Takeru Satoh Catching Up On Rurouni Kenshin Manga

Takeru Satoh recently posted additional behind-the-scene photos on his blog taken during the filming of the two new live-action Rurouni Kenshin that are set for next summer 2014. In the photos, Satoh is currently catching up with the Rurouni Kenshin manga during breaks. It was also mentioned that the films are already at the peak of production. Takeru Satoh, best known for the role for Kamen Rider Den-O will reprise his role as Kenshin Himura.

The latest Rurouni movies will be based on Kyoto arc of Nobuhiro Watsuki's original manga, specifically, the Great Kyoto Fire and Legend's End storylines. The two-part movies will be entitled Rurouni Kenshin: The Great Kyoto Fire Arc and Rurouni Kenshin: The End of a Legend Arc.

The "Kyoto Arc" took place several months after Kenshin joins the Kamiya Dojo. Shishio Makoto plans to conquer Japan by destroying the Meiji Government, starting with Kyoto. Feeling that his friends may be attacked, Kenshin goes to meet Shishio alone in order to defeat him. However, many of his friends, including a young Oniwabanshū named Makimachi Misao, decide to help him in his fight.

The first Rurouni Kenshin live action film debuted at the top of Japan Box Office when it premiered in Japan on August 25th, 2012. It also has been seen in theaters more than 2 million times, earning over 3 Billion yen in Japan. Check out the rest of the cast list from this link.
