I just got back from seeing the Rurouni Kenshin live action movie.
So, the anime/manga that was MY anime, aka, my childhood, my influences, my inspiration… to be a writer, artist, to go abroad and live in Tokyo, to go to conventions, to cosplay etc etc was Rurouni Kenshin. I have major feels for that and its apart of my life that reminds me even just of the days I spent in that fandom, finding out who I was and watching a really good story unfold.
So as a hardcore fan and critique…
GO SEE THIS MOVIE.
IT WAS AWESOME. SO well put together! AMAZING cinematagraphy, AMAZING coreography for the fight scenes, AMAZING composition and dialogue and ARGH. Enough familiar plot and references to make you happy and enough new things to still have you on the edge of your seat. 10/10 Its so true to the story even though its slightly different. ITS TRUE TO THE FEELING! The edge of your seat, emotional and then warm happy fuzzy adopted family come home rurouni, fight for the people who live tomorrow FEEELING!!!
SEE IT ITS AWESOME.
