I'm guessing the second film is titled "The Beginning" because it's going to feature Kenshin and Tomoe's backstory in the first half before the final fight with Enishi.

Kind of crazy we're getting the Jinchu Arc of Kenshin in live action movie form before ever having it animated. We need a Kenshin anime reboot a la Hunter x Hunter.

Hopefully the Martial-Arts Choreographer is the same Gentleman as that of the Previous Trilogy: He studied under Master Yuen Woo-Ping of "The Matrix" and Jet Li's "Once Upon A Time In China" series fame in Hong Kong before bringing master Yuen's Wuxia-Style of combat back to Japan, and boy did it show in the balletic savage beauty, particularly in the Four Heroes Versus Shishio Makoto Finale.

For this Duo of films his Direction would be doubly appropriate, as Enishi, the villain of this arc, fights in a Chinese Wushu style, which will allow the choreographer to return to his Hong Kong Action Cinema roots. Smile

I hope so and considering how much they seem to be tapping on previous talent it wouldn't be too shocking if it was.
