Childhood Nostalgia!

YEAH SO, oops. capslock was on. anyway, yeah so i was just ripping songs out of my old collection of burned CDs of anime songs. I'm just at disk no.2 and i have 3 more to go. :D
and ALL the songs are titled as "Track (number)" SO, that means, i have to manually rename the songs.
You must be thinking, "that's eassssyyyyy.."
Actually, I've had these CDs since I was 13, and the last I heard them was 4 years ago. And there are a variety of songs in there from many different animes. Apparently in Disk 2, i can't remember 10 songs nor which anime they came from. Dangit.
and as i was looking for OST titles for Samurai X/ Rurouni Kenshin (SUPER old series)

A quick history of this magnificent series:
First came out as a manga by Nobuhiro Watsuki in 1994 (that's freaking 17 years ago!) The fictional setting takes place during the early Meiji period in Japan. The story is about a fictional assassin named Himura Kenshin, from the Bakumatsu who becomes a wanderer to protect the people of Japan.
People born in the 1990s would know this anime/manga :)
(i started watching this when i was 7 or 8)

anyway, back to the blog update. As i was looking through it's wikipedia page, I stumbled upon this part of the long article that RUROUNI KENSHIN IS GOING TO BE MADE INTO A LIVE ACTION MOVIE!!
After 17 years!!

Live action film

After a year of rumors about a live action Rurouni Kenshin movie, it was finally confirmed on June 28, 2011.[57] Produced by Warner Bros., it will be directed by Keishi Ōtomo and star Takeru Sato as Kenshin. The film is scheduled for a 2012 release, and the staff "aims to release the film internationally and eventually make a series."[17]


I got this off some Forum. (takeru Sato as Himura Kenshin)

please oh please oh please oh please don't ruin beloved Kenshin's character D:
I used to have this really, epic crush on him. HAHA. lasted till i was.. 10? 11? yeah. that's pretty long. XD
and YES i'm SUPER excited!! though, the director really SHOULD consider puffing up Sato's long hair. it looks limp and lifeless :/ 

THIS should be the way. see how puffy and natural it looks? :D

and this is just Beautiful.

Check out Behindinfinity's cosplays on Deviant Art!! it's GORGEOUS i tell you!
one of the best cosplayers i've ever seen!
off to bed.
looonnngggg day tomorrow :D

and i feel like rewatching all these animes. It's so nostalgic I feel like crying. HAHA

Why does Kenshin's hair look black? Or maybe dark brown... PLEASE tell me Kenshin's hair isn't going to be black or brown! Kenshin's hair is RED! It's one of his major identifying features!

That's not even Sato Takeru, nor is it related to the Rurouni Kenshin movie. That is a scene from the music video of Domoto Koichi's song Kagen no Tsuki; the video was based on Rurouni Kenshin.

I see, my apologies then. (Though it's half a year late) That being said, the movie's coming out already anyway and I dare say I'm looking forward to it!
