Actor Takeru Satoh also expresses interest in Kenshin sequel

Takeru Satoh, the star of the recently released live-action Rurouni Kenshin film, told the Japanese website Hollywood Channel that he wants to play the youthful assassin Killua from the Hunter × Hunter manga. In an article published on Thursday, the website had asked Satoh about which real-life character he would like to play next (Shinsengumi swordsman Okita Sōji), as well as which manga character.

Satoh did acknowledge with a laugh, "But since [Killua] is 12 years old…He's a little young for me."

In a separate Saturday report by Oricon Style, Satoh also expressed interest in reprising his role in a sequel to the Rurouni Kenshin film, to fans present at an opening-day screening where he made an appearance.

Before taking on the titular role in Rurouni Kenshin, Satoh appeared in Kamen Rider Den-O, Rookies, Beck, and Ryōmaden. Rurouni Kenshin opened in Japan this past Saturday.
