Good to see they are taking the live action Akira movie seriously: Akira Link

This was actually pretty damn good!, quite surprised lol. Shame it's not a full length movie though :/

Btw what did you happen to think of the live action and in this case "Full Length" Kenshin movie?

I have yet to see the live action Kenshin movie. When news of that came about I was in the middle of watching the anime (for the first time) so didn't really look into seeing that if I'm honest, kinda forgot about it after that.
Did it do the series justice would you say?. I'm usually left disappointed with stuff like that as they often never do (as I was expecting with the Akira vid you linked). Will have to give it a watch at some point though and see how it is. Was a little late to the party with Kenshin but it's still a favourite of mine and the OVA (Tsuiokuhen) is still one of the single best pieces of anime I've seen to date. That reminds me.. I still need to see Shin Kyoto-Hen too heh.

Well since it was Akira & Tsuiokuhen movies that originally got me in to anime (immediately followed by Ghost in the Shell), I am a bit overly critical of the live action Kenshin. So in many ways, I wished it had been... more.
They took it seriously, and though its a bit rushed.... Am still glad they made the movie.
