Mishi’s top picks for Otaku
This is the last live action movie! I wished this movie could continue forever. (・∀・) I think it was good to live action movies. 1st one was too good so there are many people excepted 2nd and 3rd to get better and better but unfortunately, it didn’t go to that way. But that doesn’t mean it was negative! Averagely, these movies are good! The impression of the 3rd movie is Makoto! He is so strong! I am not going to spoil you guys but at the end, all of the people fight him. If Kenshin fights alone on this movie, I wouldn’t know what happened. (*´д`*) The story doesn’t twist and turn so all people get together and try to put their strength to defeat the bad guy. It is simply for us to watch it and without feeling a stress, you can enjoy it! As usual, action scenes are standing out. If you watch them all together, I am sure you would want to say to make another story!
I think these live action movies are successful as a live action movie and you can get to see the potential of Japanese movie industry. I like to watch old samurai movies but I also like the movie that has action with computer graphic too now. I can’t wait to get to watch another movie like these! For fans of Rurouni Kenshin or not, these live action movies won’t let you betray! I recommend you guys to watch these and have a fun with your friends! I guarantee that you will enjoy these movies! ￥＾－＾￥
