Death Note's Tatsuya Fujiwara is Shishio Makoto in "Rurouni Kenshin"

Jump SQ announced that Tatsuya Fujiwara (Death Note's Light Yagami) had been confirmed to play as the powerful Shishio Makoto in the two upcoming Rurouni Kenshin live action films. Directed by Keishi Ōtomo (Ryōmaden), it will premiere on Summer 2014.

The two films will be entitled “Rurouni Kenshin: The Great Kyoto Fire Arc” and “Rurouni Kenshin: The End of a Legend Arc”. Takeru Sato (Kamen Rider Den-O) will be reprising his role from the first film as Kenshin Himura.

The "Kyoto Arc" took place several months after Kenshin joins the Kamiya Dojo. Shishio Makoto plans to conquer Japan by destroying the Meiji Government, starting with Kyoto. Feeling that his friends may be attacked, Kenshin goes to meet Shishio alone in order to defeat him. However, many of his friends, including a young Oniwabanshū named Makimachi Misao, decide to help him in his fight.

The first Rurouni Kenshin live action film debuted at the top of Japan Box Office when it premiered in Japan on August 25th, 2012. It also has been seen in theaters more than 2 million times, earning over $36.7 million in Japan, and $25 million internationally!
