As the productions of the Rurouni Kenshin films are on there way, casting of characters had been announced. The cast from the first film are still the same except for one major change. The actor that played Yahiko Myojin in the first film has been replaced, and I can only speculate the change because they wanted to portray an older Yahiko.
Here’s the list on who is playing who and the newly added cast:
Min Tanaka will play Nenji Kashiwazaki/Okina
Kazufumi Miyazawa will play Toshimichi Ōkubo
Maryjun Takahashi will play Yumi Komagota
I really do hope that the newly casted actors and actress really portray their character.
