I watched the last 2 films, and they were so good omg. I was a little sad that we lost the Sano & Saitou buddy trip of the anime, but the way the film condensed events was impressive.

All the casting continues to be spot on, for the most part. Aoshi was a little skinnier than I would like, and the way they changed his backstory made his hatred of Kenshin make no sense... Sano continues to be a little off to me, but in a way that I can't put my finger on.

But Fukuyama Masaharu as Hiko Seijuro was so good! so! good! I was telling my friend that I didn't know why the mangaka is rebooting the manga events, when there are so many interesting side characters. Why can't we see Hiko Seijuro's mysterious backstory instead? He always seems like such an interesting character!

Saitou was also great - Kenshin, Kaoru, Yahiko, Misao, Megumi, all the casting and performances were great.

If I remember correctly, women in the manga and anime could fight way better than Kaoru and Misao seem to be able to in these films... which is annoying. Especially since Misao and Kaoru are fighters as their profession. Also, did Shishio kidnap Kaoru in the anime? That annoyed me too.

I LOVED the little play at the beginning of the 2nd film, where stage-Kenshin runs around in a circle as part of his fighting move. Then whenever real Kenshin ran around in a circle when he fought, I loled.

Now I want MORE KENSHIN. MORE FILMS!!!!
