Rurouni Kenshin Kyoto Taika Hen

Keishi Ohtomo Japan, 2014

pluviosity's rating of the film Rurouni Kenshin: Kyoto Inferno

For starter, it's more-than-30 episodes to adapt, so I didn't dare to put my expectation too high. Yet, that doesn't mean I didn't expect anything at all. Not when Fujiwara Tatsuya is on board. A lot of the story parts seem like a patch up. Kaoru's decision, Sanosuke (bloody worse than the first film), the encounter with Misao, and err..Aoshi. Tsk, the last one is a big catch 22 though, I understand that. *sigh*
