Where exactly was Aoshi?
eevaleena 14th-Jul-2012 03:09 am (UTC)
I couldn't find him too. Someone mention they saw him with Hannya. I think I saw Hannya (in Nadeshiko trailer, where Megumi is attacking that guy), but I didn't saw Aoshi at all! ^^;
tiffa666 14th-Jul-2012 04:33 am (UTC)
I believe he's not part of this movie. He might if ever there'll be a sequel. The same w/ Jupon Katana.I want MatsuKen to play his character anyway.xD

It wasn't Aoshi-sama or Hannya. It was Gein, he first appears as a guy with long hair and mask which when removed actually shows that scarred ninja. He's a character from the Enishi arc.

Yuu Aoi looks way to young to be Megumi but her acting is spot on.

I can't believe how many bad guys they have in just one movie. lol.
Sanzou looks great, and I'm liking Kaoru. OF course, KENSHIN!!!
I can't wait to see a subbed/dubbed version of this.
aussiebaka 15th-Jul-2012 06:09 am (UTC)
Omg, a dub would ruin EVERYTHING.
Please don't hope for that, bb.

So looking forward to this though. Takeru looks amaaaazing. XD
