Rurouni Kenshin (live-action film)

ANN: The film will open in Japan on August 25. The film is licensed in Australia (first distributor to announce the license out side of Japan).

How did folks feel about this that were fans of the original anime/manga? It's almost hard to imagine...were the original creators involved much in the making of it?

Most of the time these live-action adaptations aren't supervised by the original manga/anime creators. Though Japanese live-action adaptations always tread far closer to their source material than say Hollywood, which doesn't care one bit about sticking close to the original.

I saw it at a film festival a few years ago and, as a fan of the anime, I was pleasantly surprised with how good the live-action version is. I have it on DVD and need to watch it again. There are sequels to it also, which I haven't yet seen.
