New Rurouni Kenshin images are pleasing


And the onslaught of Rurouni Kenshin live action shots continues with this new, small set of images. This time around we have Kenshin facing off with Jinei Udo, who should be familiar to fans of Nobuhiro Watsuki's manga. This seems to confirm that the film will likely be covering at least the first few volumes of the original series.

I've stated this before, but I'm hoping that the movie doesn't try to bite off more than it can chew. If this first film proves to be a success, they'd still have plenty of material to work off of. I'd be incredibly disappointed if they tried to have a complete Himura Kenshin development arc in just one feature. 

The images continue to look good and the atmosphere is fantastic. I will continue to cross my fingers in the hope that they don't screw this up.
