If you didn't watch Samurai X when you were a child, you've missed a huge part of your childhood! 

Of course, I'm exaggerating. But seriously, Samurai X (Rurouni Kenshin) is one of the best animes ever created. I remember swooning at Kenshin Himura's cute smile and giggling at the romantic scenes between him and Kori/Kaoru. <3 

There's been a buzz over the web about the upcoming live version of this well-loved anime. I usually hate live action films since they fail to give justice to the original series, not to mention the weird interpretations of cartoon characters as human beings. But I must say that this live action series is actually promising. They've released some promotional pictures of the live action film and we get to have our first look of the much awaited Kenshin Himura as a person. And I say, look at him! :) Isn't he perfect for the part or what???

Kenshin is played by the popular actor Takeru Sato. I don't really know him and I haven't seen any of his movies/shows but this still from the movie is more than what I could ever hope for as a real life interpretation of the famous battosai! :) 

The movie will be released next year, on my birthday month, August! Now, there's something to look forward to. ^_^ 

Comprising the casts are Takei Emi as Kamiya Kaoru; Aoi Yu as Takani Megumi; Aoki Munetaka as Sagara Sanosuke; and Tanaka Taketo as Myojin Yahiko (I know him as Yoshi). I can't wait to know who they casted as Makamichi Misao.
