I don’t dig anime, but the Ruroni Kenshin trailer looks amazing

I tend not to watch many modern Japanese actioners because live-action anime pacing comes off as really cheesy. It sits somewhere awkwardly between Chambara/Western and HK-style, like a not-so-self-aware Kill Bill. Black Belt was a nice departure, which was basically Chambara without weapons, close to reality without the extreme epicness that anime action suffers from features. But when someone does live-action anime well, like this beast here, I’m down. That wall flip got me pumped. Go Japan!
