Anime News Network has uncovered this advertisement in the January 2012 issue of Jump Square magazine.
Actor Takeru Satoh is seen above as the title character in the live-action “Rurouni Kenshin” film, also called “Samurai X” in the states. The story is about a fictional assassin named Himura Kenshin, from the Bakumatsu era of Japan between 1853 and 1867, who becomes a wandering ronin to protect the people of Japan and to atone for his actions during the war.
The film will open throughout Japan on August 25 and in America… who knows when. In the meantime, keep watching your anime DVD’s to satiate yourself until this gets imported as a bootleg.
