My wife and I had a chance to join the die-hard fanatics in viewing the limited show of one of the most talked about anime. Most Pinoys my age (those who are on their 30s) would definitely have followed the tale of “Battousai”.
The live action rendition of Samurai X has enticed anime lovers to have a splendid peek to this short screen play of one of the oldest and most loved Samurais.
Rouroni Kenshin (Kenshin the Wanderer) has delivered a cutting edge performance with the careful selection of Japanese cast for us to witness how the legendary sword slayer lived his story in the flesh.
Though the movie’s plot was in a way crafted to feature all the key characters from the original animated series as to appear condensed, Rouroni Kenshin still delivered a properly structured story line.
With the Battousai’s back blade, the makers have displayed the true capabilities of the sword master and how Kenshin Himura’s character lived in the epic anime mastery even for 190 minutes or so.
People who have seen this film would definitely ask for a follow through to witness more of Kenshin’s awesome sword play and of course his slick smile and sense of humor which surely made the girls go gaga.
