Iseya Yusuke and Kamiki Ryunosuke comment on their roles in the upcoming RuroKen sequels
When I was reading ‘Weekly Shonen Jump’, ‘Rurouni Kenshin’ series just started. So I was looking forward to the live action movie, anticipating how it would turn out. When I was offered a role for the sequels, I decided to play because it’s Director Otomo’s work and I was definitely interested in his work.
To film action scenes must be hard, I suppose, but I’m very happy and lucky as an actor to challenge my own limits.
Director Otomo puts a strong faith in his actors.
He has been working on making movies without being trapped by stereotypical views and always thinking how his works should be in the society. So I think this is an excellent opportunity to improve my ability. I’ll challenge my limits just as much as in the movie ‘Ashita no Jo (Romorrow’s Joe)’!
Shinomori Aoshi is a character who conceals his feelings, but he has a lot of emotions inside him, I suppose. So I’d like to play him thinking much of the balance.
I feel honored to have an opportunity to play such a wonderful role. Since I’ve long been attracted to this role, I got fired up more than enough. At the same time, I hope to show you Sojiro that has originality.
And action is essential to this movie.
I’ve been practicing as hard as possible, so everybody, please look forward to the sequels.

Ruroken Sequels Speculations: Part 4 - Obvious Locations
What’s going to happen in the upcoming Ruroken live action sequels? Can we tell? Well, we can’t, really, but with so many photos from the location shooting and so on what we really can do is speculate. Here’s my speculations:
These two photos show how restaurant Shirobeko and the home of the swordsmith Arai Seikuu are going to look like in the upcoming sequels. Does an existence of Shirobeko set mean that Kaoru will make her own journey to Kyoto? Not necessarily but very likely.
