Official Live-Action Rurouni Kenshin Film Sequels Poster Revealed
Bond Hengbu wrote:I am really curious about Mr. Toilet Paper's fighting style. How fluid is he going to look? I imagine him being much smaller than Kenshin and using his size as agility booster.
Shishio's sword, like Kenshin's, is a work by master swordsmith Arai Shakku: a blade called Mugenjin (無限刃 lit. "Unlimited Blade"?); its self-sharpening serrated edge flaked away in a regular pattern as it was used and it had become soaked in the flesh and body fat of the victims he had killed over the years. As a result he is able to execute fire-oriented techniques using the oils as fuel.
Shishio's monstrous strength, stamina, resistance to injury, and ability to read his opponent place him in at least the same league as Kenshin. (Shishio demonstrates the ability to stop Kenshin's Ryushosen using his fingers, dodge and counter Saito's Gatotsu Zeroshiki at point-blank range, see through Aoshi's Jisen-Kenbu technique, and take Sanosuke's Futae no Kiwami without any injuries or damage despite it making contact with his left cheek). Though it was stated that Shishio's previous knowledge of their abilities decreased the effectiveness of these techniques. In addition, he has the unique ability of being able to neutralize any technique he has seen before even once. (This explains how he was able to stop Kenshin's Ryushosen in their battle; he saw the technique when Kenshin used it against Senkaku in the Shingetsu village; and how he took Sanosuke's Futae no Kiwami to the face; he saw him use it to deflect the bullet from the gattling guns on his battleship during Sanosuke, Kenshin and Saito's combined assault on his battleship.)
Shishio uses Mugenjin to execute techniques referred to by Hōji as "The Three Secret Swords":

However, if you aren’t, then you’re just in time to check out a brand new full trailer ahead of the film’s February 22, 2014 Japan release. And yes, a NSFW warning is in order.
Actor Satoshi Ohno (Kaibutsu-kun) of the group Arashi and director Hideo Nakata (Ring/Ringu, The Complex) are working on a live-action television version of the Shinigami-kun manga, which will premiere this April. This will be the first time that the two have worked together. Koichi Endo (Tsuideni Tonchinkan) created the original manga, which his fans call his "long-lost masterpiece," about a novice god of death.
The story follows the title character (also known as God of Death No. 413) who serves the role of sending the spirits of the dead to the afterlife. The "heartwarming fantasy" also deals with parent-child love, friendship, and social issues such as childhood bullying. Shinigami-kun's real name and other details have not been revealed, but he appears in his black suit and bow tie, saying "Congratulations, I'm here to take you to the next world!" Part of his important duties is to persuade someone who seems about to commit suicide and to prevent unexpected deaths (accidental deaths), but as a novice, he breaks rules of the afterlife and makes decisions like a human.
