Evangelion is now down to #8. Its only been 12 weeks but I had it staying in the top 10 for 15-20 weeks with the way it was going. Can it even reach 15 straight weeks now.

I'm happy to see Kenshin doing well, but I will probably hold off until both movies are out. Between the wait for the second movie and the wait for a US release, it is going to be a while Sad

The funny part is that I still have NO IDEA if the Jinchuu Arc ends on this movie or does it end on the next movie that is actually called 'The Beginning' despite being the actual final (not to be confused with this movie, called 'The Final')? As in does it conclude here and the next movie is just strictly the backstory, or is it a two-parter?

If anyone knows the answer, please let me know.

Considering the way it has been marketed it is a two timer but I wouldn't be surprised if there is another considering the Hokkaido arc seems to a success commercially

Even with this feat, Jinchu arc still won't get a proper anime adaptation. Anime cry

The rock band ONE OK ROCK returns to perform the theme song "Renegade" for the films.

As a OOR fan, I have to point out that the song is called "Renegades" with an "s" at the end. Wink

The movie is supposed to be available on Netflix in parts of Asia later this month. Looking forward to that! VPN FTW.

Pretty sure The Beginning is entirely Kenshin's origin story based on the OVAs.

I would assume that "The Final" lines up with Trust/Betrayal and "The Beginning" lines up with older Enishi and the rest of Jinchuu Arc.

It really wouldn't make sense to have it the other way, as you need to understand Tomoe and Kenshin' circumstances to have any idea of Enishi's motivation.
