Rurouni Kenshin is the long awaited live action movie based on the highly popular 90’s manga and anime series, “Samurai X”— a fictional Meiji period story about a wanderer named Himura Kenshin, and how he tries to find atonement for the murders he committed in the past as the great assassin “Battōsai.” The movie is directed by Keishi Otomo and casts Takeru Sato as Kenshin.
To celebrate the local release of the Rurouni Kenshin live action movie, the University of the Philippines Anime Manga Enthusiasts, Movie Punch and SM Cinema are proud to present – Swordplay: Rurouni Kenshin Cosplay Competition. This event will be held on December 2, 2012, 12 pm, at the 4th floor, The Annex, SM City North Edsa.
