Still so pretty...

A trailer has turned up for the upcoming Rurouni Kenshin sequel Rurouni Kenshin: the Great Kyoto Fire Arc, and while I'm not quite as excited as I was for the first film, I'm still pretty stoked. The first movie was beautifully shot and perfectly cast, but I got more than a little irritated with the sword-fighting heroine's constant bouts of utter uselessness, which forced the hero to rescue her from her own stupidity again... and again... and again. Admittedly, he does a fair bit of rescuing in the manga, too, but at least we get to see her successfully standing up for herself occasionally, which the movie largely eliminated. But I'm still gonna watch the sequel the second I get my hands on it, because I like sword fighting and historical costumes and (let's be honest, here) Sato Takeru is truly, ridiculously good-looking.
