MOVIE REVIEW: Rurouni Kenshin: The Legend Ends
All good things must come to an end, even the most awesome samurai action movie ever.
(SPOT.ph) In 1994, writer/artist Nobuhiro Watsuki created the Rurouni Kenshin manga about Kenshin Himura, a wandering samurai seeking redemption for his sins as a former assassin during the tumultuous Meiji Restoration in turn-of-the-century Japan. Then in 1996, the manga was adapted into an anime, the incarnation that garnered the widest audience. Until 2012-18 years, 28 volumes, and 95 episodes later-when it was adapted into a live-action film. Now in 2014, the two-part sequel is being released: Kyoto Inferno last August, and The Legend Ends this September.
