Was wondering this because I never really looked into it, but the show also goes by Samurai-X. Was that the original name or just a fan-made name

It got licensed under that name for the movies/OVA as well as in the UK I believe that was the title.

If I recall, it's because some company had the license for the TV series but not the OVA. So when ADV licensed the original OVA they had to call it Samurai X.

Licensing and copyright is retarded in terms of expanding and distributing intellectual property.

More images, courtesy of Anime News Network spreading the love! But we have to wait till August 25, which means December-ish for DVD.

SQUEE! Although, it's going to take me a bit to get used to Takei's Kaoru - too used to the high ponytail. Still, SQUEE!

And here's Warner Bros Japan's main site for the film.

Man, I don't know whether Satoh looks better as rurouni or Battousai... :O

Teaser trailer!

HOLY SH- Cue a very loud "SQUEE!" from me. August 25, 2012 release equates to having to wait till at LEAST February 2013 for DVD/BD. DAAAAAAMN.

Oh, Udo Jin'e should look familiar to some, or be familiar to those of us that can read kanji. :D Hint: He was a fellow Rider.

Which reminds me, this should be moved to Movies.

English-subbed version of the 2nd trailer.

Cue nerdgasm. Again.

(Granted, being a QCer for TVN has kinda spoiled me on the font. XD)

... I just... I don't know if I can't see him as anything but Ryotarou... Or him having been Ryotarou seems perfect for him not being Kenshin. It's just, I so want to see this, in theaters, dragging friends to it, and tricking them into watching Den-O.

Behind-the-scenes footage, with Takeru practicing his lines and causing a bit of confusion on RK fans between him and Emi Takei (as Kaoru) during what I've dubbed the "umbrella scene".
