Fans can expect nationwide road shows and promotions even bigger than the first movie!

Actor Takeru Satoh will of course reprise his role as the protagonist, Kenshin in the blockbuster hit Rurouni Kenshin, which opened on Aug. 25, 2012, and grossed over 
3 billion yen at the box office during its run. The popular drama returns after two years in summer 2014 as a sequel divided into two parts na bongga ang elaboration ko in my other post....

Comment from Takeru Satoh (Himura Kenshin):
"I feel very fortunate to be able to play Kenshin again, but I am also feeling the pressure of having to cross over an even higher hurdle. This time, the movie will portray the “Kyoto Arc,” which is one of the most popular arcs and considered the climax of the manga. I am glad we will be able to capture the great story on screen, but at the same time, this will also be a very difficult project. However, I don't think of it as 'surpassing the previous film,' but rather, I would like to make a movie that fans will approve of. As such, I will place my trust in the director and play Kenshin based on the soul of the original manga, and challenge the new scale and action in the sequel. I started practicing for combat scenes and horse-riding since a few months ago. All the cast and staff are shooting this movie from the bottom of their hearts so I hope our fans will support us as well!"

Ang effort talaga niya to be able to portray Kenshin in a "a way that fans will approve of" daw... Para sa akin, ikaw ang the best! For me, no one can surpass the way how excellent you portrayed your character! (Makapuri! Ahahah XD)

Guess what he's re-reading? The manga itself!

Takeru Satoh's official blog post (*here* goodluck n lng dahil hindi ko din naintindihan, kakaunting katakana at hiragana at sangkaterbang kanji T_T) shares with the world that Satoh is re-reading the manga so he won't forget his character Kenshin Himura's original intentions based on the story line of members of the elite group Juppongatana along with its leader, the burnt and bandaged Makoto Shishio (Tatsuya Fujiwara).

To get into the character talaga ang peg! And I think he deserves all the praise! All of them do! I didn't miss the chance to watch the first movie, buti n lng anjan si Ayan-chan, and we're totally blown-away! As in boom!

Parang walang kaarte-arte sa katawan... The actors and the actresses are characters of the story... They are who they are in the story... Feel na feel ko ang story... Ang depth, ang drama... Ang gagaling nilang lahat!

The filming of the two "Rurouni Kenshin" films ended on December 27 last year after six months of filming.
And the very nice Takeru Satoh posted this on his blog regarding the six month shoot.
"It was late, but Happy New Year! Sato is grateful for this year! Well, today after a long time we send to you our "Rurouni" site report. The other day Ken finished the fierce fight for half a year, we have successfully wrapped up the 'Rurouni Kenshin: The Great Kyoto Fire' and 'Rurouni Kenshin: The End of a Legend' Thanks to all of your support, we were able to finish this long and harsh shooting! Thank you very much everyone, the fans and staff who have supported this filming, who have shown their full support! We will tell you more about this report, of Kenshin's wrapping up So stay tuned!"

She was so ovewhelmed by the first live-action film last year that she would not get out of her theater seat, so she then decided to audition for the sequel films.

Parang mas feel ko sa theater pag kasama ko ung mga friends ko na otaku din or naka-appreciate din in as much as I do... Pag ako lng baka sabihin, nababaliw n ako ... Reminds me, I might be a little bit like that when we watched the first one.... nanginginig... heart pounding... CLOUD nine.... floating two FEET above the GROUND ang feeling....
