Here are the 20 most popular manga

Last week on a post about the Attack on Titan manga reaching 30 million volumes sold, I wondered what the numbers were for other popular series. Several days later, Mangazenken posts which are the top 20 manga series based on their publicat...

2nd and 3rd Rurouni Kenshin films get a full length trailer

I was a big fan of the first live action Rurouni Kenshin film. It had pacing problems, but on the whole, I felt that it did a strong job of capturing the tone of the manga while adapting the material in a way that worked for film. I'm pret...

Rurouni Kenshin enemy manga spinoff

Did anyone here get a chance to go to Otakon Vegas? The show featured a panel for well-known novelist, Kaworu Kurosaki, wife of manga artist Nobuhiro Watsuki. She let everyone know that there will in fact be a Rurouni Kenshin manga spi...

Streaming GET! Rurouni Kenshin is now on Crunchyroll

I don't know if this is just a coincident, but I find it a bit too convenient for Crunchyroll to announce that they're streaming the Rurouni Kenshin anime during the same week that Shishio's design for the next live-action Rurouni Kenshin f...

New Rurouni Kenshin visual shows off live action Misao

We finally have our first image of the live action version of Misao Makimachi from the upcoming pair of Rurouni Kenshin films. As with the rest of the cast, young Tao Tsuchiya looks more than appropriate for the fan favorite character. Tsuc...

New live action Rurouni Kenshin visual shows off Aoshi

I quite liked the first live action Rurouni Kenshin film. I think it did a strong job of covering the first two arcs while maintaining the look and feel of the original series. One of the bigger complaints about the film was the lack of Aos...

TGS 2013: Offscreen J-Star Victory VS footage

I wrote a short preview for J-Stars Victory VS earlier today, and now I have video of the game in action.  This is a complete single player match that I think does a good job of showing what J-Stars is all about. Check it out above an...

TGS 2013: Jumping in with J-Stars Victory VS

It wouldn't be a stretch to say that nearly three quarters of Namco Bandai's Tokyo Game Show booth is composed of Shonen Jump games.  Perhaps the biggest of the bunch is J-Stars Victory VS for the PS3 and the Vita. A four player versus...

Tatsuya Fujiwara to play Shishio in the new Kenshin films

I've been a fan of Tatsuya Fujiwara for quite some time. His super melodramatic performance as Light Yagami in both Death Note films was a blast to watch, and over the past six or so years he's grown a lot as an actor.  Which is why th...

Rurouni Kenshin gets two new live action films

I quite liked the first live action Rurouni Kenshin film. It combined the first few smaller arcs of the original series, and did a pretty bang-up job with the source material. I noted in my review that there were plenty of hooks in the film...
