My Review


Rurouni Kenshin -Kyoto Inferno- Live Action Movie Part 2 Recommendation chart

I enjoyed this movie! But it seems like the story was compressed too much. I know the movie has a limitation of time but I felt this way. The tempo is really good and speedy so things happen quickly from scene to scene. It was easy to watch, though. That is my only complaint. Oh no, that is not true! o(・_・= ・_・)o I have things to say about one scene.

Actually, this made me mad! o(`ω´*)o If you know the anime version, when Kenshin goes to Kyoto, he says goodbye to Kaoru right? That was at night and many fireflies fly around them. Kenshin holds her gently and says goodbye to her. Kaoru starts to cry! It was impressive scene! There are many fans for that scene! But on this movie, she doesn’t cry, it is not at night, no fireflies and whyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyy! Do you have some money to go to Japan? If so, please go and meet the director of this movie and complain about it??? ( #゚д゚)=○)゚Д)^^^^^^゚ It was so disappointing to watch that scene because I expected that to happen! ( ´д)ヒソ(´д`)ヒソ(д` ) ( ´д)ヒソ(´д`)ヒソ(д` ) ( ´д)ヒソ(´д`)ヒソ(д` ) See, many people say so too. lol

Anyway, except for that, it was good! This movie ends halfway but that is because next one came up in a row.(This movie was out at the theater on August 2014 and next one came out at the theater in September. 2014.) I hope next one will finish right and make me feel like I will be glad to watch these movies. I recommend you to watch this movie. You know this anime or not, I am sure you can enjoy watching this live action series! It is sad that next one is a last live action movie! Well, I will see you later! Bye Bye~ ( ´∀`)/~~
