Behold! Have a better glimpse of the live-action adaptation of るろうに剣心 Rurouni Kenshin with the release of the full trailer.
We have earlier seen the first trailer of the film and were in general excited by what we witnessed despite the fact that the trailer were simply too brief. Now, with the release of the full trailer, we can have a better grasp of the look and feel of the adaptation.
With no further ado, hit the jump to check out the full trailer.
With Mandarin subtitles.
And here's the first trailer for those who missed it earlier on.
The cast of characters continue to impressed me with the choice of Yōsuke Eguchi (江口 洋介) as fan-favorite anti-hero Saitō Hajime (斎藤 一) particularly of interest. With the film set to be a first part of a series, we can fairly expect the introduction of another popular anti-hero Shinomori Aoshi (四乃森 蒼紫), and his gang, Oniwabanshū (御庭番眾) to be later down the line and with significant difference from the original since Takeda Kanryū (武田 観柳) is already featured as the villain in the first film.
Here are images from the film.
For those curious about the earlier mentioned Saitō Hajime and his particularly intriguing ally/enemy relationship with Kenshin, here's an excerpt featuring, in our opinion, one of the best duel scene in anime history.
Rurouni Kenshin is currently slated to release in Japan on August 25th, 2012. However, the US release date has not been announced as yet.
