The New RUROUNI KENSHIN Sequel Poster Bids "Farewell" To A Legend

It's been about a month since we saw the most recent trailer for the upcoming two-part finale to the Rurouni Kenshin trilogy, and even longer since the first film finally premiered at LA Eigafest in 2012 with nary a word on a DVD/Blu-Ray release except for select territories overseas. Nonetheless, the last two films are on their way, and a new poster has gone viral this week to showcase more artwork featuring actor Tatsuya Fujiwara leering above as the main nemesis of our titular hero, reprised once more by Takeru Satoh. Take a look:

Also grazing the new poster is a tagline that reads "Farewell, Kenshin" which the films' spokesperson Tokunaga Kimura referenced author Nobuhiro Watsuki's original manga on which the films are based, saying "It signifies the end of the Kyoto arc, where Kenshin in his desperate state may not be able to honor his oath not to kill, thanks to the appearance of the most insane enemy — and the parting of loved ones.".

Both Rurouni Kenshin films - Kyoto Inferno and The Legend Ends are directed by Keishi Otomo, and will release respectively in Japan on August 1 and September 13, courtesy of Warner Bros. Japan.

Check out the most recent trailer embedded at the bottom of the page, and stay tuned for more news.

An assassin named Shishio Makoto was once contracted by the government, but has since become obsessed with tearing it down. In his previous adventure, Himura Kenshin was primarily concerned with protecting Kamiya Kaoru, but the stakes are now much higher as he struggles to protect the nation itself.
