New photos from live-action Rurouni Kenshin film were posted by Eiga.com and Oricon websites. Photos feature singer-actor Koji Kikkawa as manslayer Jine Udo.
Jin-e Udo, codenamed “Kurogasa,” is another manslayer (hitokiri) from the revolution. He is hired to kill Kenshin and kidnaps Kaoru, ultimately forcing Kenshin’s alter-ego, Battousai, back into the light again.
Scenes in the photos were taken from Anraku-Ritsu Temple in Shiga Prefecture’s Otsu City.
The said live action samurai film will premiere on August 25, 201 in Japan featuring Takeru Satoh as Kenshin Himura and Emi Takei as Kaoru Kamiya.[youtube:http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=i4wdshVQiXc]
