I'm not excited that it's going to be a blu-ray release only. I don't have a blu-ray player.

Mehh. It seems like they weren't trying too hard with the animation.
like it doesnt look fluid or something. the fight scenes probly wont look as badass as they could be.
They should have made it look epic like FMA:Brotherhood.

kenshins new design is alright
but idk about saito's.....

its just hard for me to get used to all this new stuff
since i love the old show so much.

and the live action movie looks decent from what i can see
but i still prefer animated kenshin lol

Personally I like the new Character Design, looks smooth and modern without changing the character image so much.

Also, I love the music for this arc, especially the one in that appears in that trailer. It feels so nostalgic. Definitely looking forward for this.

Btw is it true that they will use the old Casts for main character except Saito?
Sounds good because the old Casts is done well in the old series.

The character design are good.

It seems that popular classics are being remade to fit today's standards.

I personally really enjoy the new designs.

I don't see any Ichigo in Kenshin's new look. He's as handsome as ever.

Didn't he have a baby already?

Those character designs and Seta Soujiro. <3

Just watching the OVAs for these two reasons alone.

Wtf is up with the character designs? Especially Kenshin; he reminded me of Ichigo from Bleach >_>.

Also... Hiko is smexy again.

The main reason I will watch it. Muscular men are amazing.

hmm...I'm a bit up in the air about their new look but it I'm still very excited for the reanimation. Hoping they animate the Jinchuu arc, properly following the story. Even though I say that about the new look I think it'll be fresh and exciting with better action.

Also, I had concerns about a live action (even though I wanted one) but this doesn't look too bad at all. Looks pretty good. I hope they make several movies--like a trilogy. There is a lot to take in for one movie, I just don't think it'll be enough.

...I am not excited at all. But nevertheless, the first part will be released soon.
