Being a fan of the anime series and the anime film, I do hope that this live-action movie delivers. All I hope is for its quality to be on par with Azumi and I will be happy. Hopefully an English subtitled movie comes out soon....

Update: Full Review can be read here.

I think I saw a bootleg copy of that available on (US) Amazon the other day, and I was thinking about ordering it ... but -- as is often my problem -- I'm utterly unfamiliar with the source material.

to tell you the truth there are only a few anime/manga to live action adaptations I have dug: Death Note, Azumi, Shinobi Heart Under Blade and Crying Freeman. The rest have been less than impressive.

Based on the manga by Nobuhiro Watsuki, the film follows the adventures of a young man named Kenshin Himura during the Meiji period. Watsuki discovered  and was inspired by the story of Kawakami Gensai who was a …
