Takeru Sato in the Rurouni Kenshin Film
While I'm slightly disappointed that Tori Matsuzaka isn't the one acting as Kenshin Himura for the live Rurouni Kenshin film, however it's still a delight to see Takeru Sato do the role as he did his role in Kamen Rider Den-O as the main character pretty well. I wonder if Yasuko Kobayashi herself could do a live series of Rurouni Kenshin? Hopefully she will while I hope she recovers from her burnout.
My closing thoughts maybe it's pretty much pun intended that he got chosen to be Kenshin... maybe while they might have not been able to get Tori Matsuzaka for the role, they got him maybe to pay tribute to Tori Matsuzaka's role as Shinken Red who was also named Takeru. Then again, Takeru was also the name of Red Mask. LOL!
