The official website for the upcoming Rurouni Kenshin ‘Final Chapter’ movies just revealed the actress for Tomoe, who is none other than Kasumi Arimura.
Tomoe Yukishiro is known to be Kenshin Himura’s wife during the his “battousai the slasher” days when he served as an assassin during the war. She is a very important character in the OAV’s and, if the fluff holds true, her presence will definitely leave a mark for our swordsman (in more ways than one).
Check out the promotional image below, taken from the official website:
The actress previously starred in hits such as ERASED, Strobe Edge and March Comes Like a Lion, among other works.
Rurouni Kenshin Saishūshō The Final will screen in Japan July 3, while Rurouni Kenshin Saishūshō The Beginning will open on August 7. Keishi Ōtomo will be back at the helm for both movies. Lets hope for a synced-up screening date on international shores.
