The Kenshin Musical Cast Looks Perfect In Costume

The Kenshin Musical Cast Looks Perfect in Costume

Well, except for Sanosuke. But, in all fairness, it might distract from the play if his actress went around bare-chested.

On Wednesday, all-female acting troupe Takarazuka Revue held an event to show off the cast of their upcoming Rurouni Kenshin musical. Better still, the cast was in full costume; and Japanese website Natalie was there to capture the event on film (be sure to check out their full gallery) .

So let's compare the Takarazuka cast with their anime counterparts.

    why are they all females?

      Probably because the musical/acting troupe that have decided to make the adaptation: Takarazuka Revue are all women.

      Kenshin is voiced by a woman in the anime also. :)

    I misread that as Kenichi from Kenichi The Mightiest Disciple and got a little excited.

    That Kanryu is absolutely perfect! Saito ain't too bad either... but where is Yahiko?

    The 3 live action movies are amazing. Must see.
