The Hokkaido Arc Manga coming back was one thing that was surprising, but now we are getting another live action movie titled The Final Chapter which means....  JINCHU ARC!!! (the final arc of the original manga) that's actually gonna be really awesome. 

 

 

Satoh Takeru the actor of Kenshin will be returning as well as  Director: Ohtomo Keishi 

 

 

It'll be coming out in Summer  2020 with two consecutive releases!

What do you guys think of this? Are you excited to see arguably one of the best live action adaptations of a manga/anime series continue with it's final story arc (from the original manga)?

I think the Kyoto arc was a good finish for the movie canon. They did not expand on Kenshins back story enough to warrant expanding on how he married Tomoe or for Enishi's revenge

Well, to my understanding, under Japanese law Watsuki did pay his dues to society (literally). The fact that he's publishing the Hokkaido arc again is a sign the industry has more or less forgiven him and believe there is still an audience who's willing to buy the manga and therefore still support him. How that translates to a movie audience, we'll see.

I think the Kyoto arc was a good finish for the movie canon. They did not expand on Kenshins back story enough to warrant expanding on how he married Tomoe or for Enishi's revenge

They touched upon it in the 1st movie, so they were definitely thinking of expanding on it. 

What we SHOULD NOT expect is a perfect retelling of his time with Tomoe and Jinchu. That is going to be outright impossible, even with two movies. We'll probably get some condensed version of those events, and even then there are most likely going to be radical changes.

Overall, as long as it all flows coherently I'm fine with that. The one thing I hope they do differently from the previous movies is not to introduce other RK villains only to be defeated off screen, like most of Shishio's men were. I say if you can't bring justice to them on screen, don't put them up on the screen to begin with.

Well where I was going with that is that apparently form the second movie flash backs show that Kenshin already had his cross shaped scar as I recall (correct me if I'm wrong) when he killed Tomoe's fiance and they did not even elaborate on who she was so that will need some a heavy retcon at least to even expand to that point

I think I will. It's only based on his works, he doesn't write it as far as I'm concerned. I can't read the new series cus it only reminds me of what he did, it's not a joy at all.

 

Anybody knows his charges?

In the first, movie, they detailed how Kenshin got his first scar, and when speaking with Megumi, he said he got the second scar from that man's fiancee. 

Also, they showed Tomoe mourning her fiance's death with Kenshin looking in the background, so they clearly planned to touch on this in some form.

He's probably profiting on the IP, but yeah, most of his money comes from the manga sales. And I pretty much feel the same way as you about  the Hokkaido arc. Now that his problem has come out, I can't in good conscience support him either. I'm just glad I got the whole series (prior to Hokkaido) BEFORE this news broke. 

I may look at scanalations of his newest work, but that's it. 

 

I don't know his exact charges, but he was caught with a chunk of kiddie porn that I'm surprised wasn't found out sooner. And since the conviction rate in Japan is roughly 99%, he pretty much had no hope of getting off. He could have been sentenced to either a year in prison, or paying 200k USD, which he did the later

Oh right I forgot about that. Again though, Did Kenshin already have both scars when he was watching Tomoe mourning on that busy street or not in the movie? I can’t remember but I got the feeling From watching the movies that the Jinchu arc wouldn’t be part of the story

He should have had only one during that flashback sequence. If he had both, it must have been a mistake (even in the best of films those things happen).

 

One thing I'm interested in seeing is how they're going to make Enishi fight. In the manga, though his sword was of a Japanese Style, his moves were very much of a Chinese influence. The closest weapon to what he uses in real life would be a Wodao, but I wonder if the studio will consult any wushu experts or just make up their own thing.
