First look at live action Rurouni Kenshin's Shishio


I can get behind this

More live action Rurouni Kenshin news has rolled in, this time revealing Tatsuya Fujiwara's version of the fan favorite villain, Makoto Shishio. Much to my personal surprise, the production team clearly didn't stray too far from the source material in terms of designing the character for the real world.

If anything, his skin actually looks more messed up than his manga incarnation. Hopefully we'll be getting a bigger, full body image of Shishio sometime in the future. In the meantime, I continue to be impressed by how Keishi Otomo and his team have been adapting this franchise.

How do you feel about Shishio's look? Are you happy they stuck to the source material? Sound off below!
