The official website of JUMP SQ has revealed that actor Fujiwara Tatsuya (Battle Royale, Death Note) will take on the role of Kyoto arc villain Shishio Makoto in the anticipated 2-part sequel of the Rurouni live action adaptation. Fujiwara expressed that he is glad that he was offered the role and mentioned that he used to watch Rurouni Kenshin as a child.*

Actor Sato Takeru reprises his role as Himura Kenshin. He said he is happy to return as the character despite the big pressure the first movie has posted. Otomo Keishi also returns as director to the sequels.*
