If you open your mind, you will find Hollywood anime movies that will pique your interest. To give an overview of this list, you'll see titles that you've probably already seen before. Perhaps, you'll also catch unfamiliar movies that you might like. The classics include Death Note, Bleach, and Fullmetal Alchemist. As you continue watching these anime adaptations, you will sometimes encounter the same lead actor.

    Rurouni Kenshin: Final Chapter Part I - The Final movie is the latest live-action adaptation of the Rurouni Kenshin manga and anime series. Keishi Ohtomo, director of Rurouni Kenshin: Kyoto Inferno, returns to direct the sequel. Takeru Satoh is also back to reprise his role as the scar-faced samurai. Slated to premiere on July 3, 2020, distributors have to postpone the Rurouni Kenshin full movie release date to spring 2021 due to the global coronavirus pandemic. But what's in it for us? We (or at least most of us) all know that the protagonist is the once known feared manslayer Battousai, Kenshin Himura. But now, he's living a low life, keeping a vow not to kill again. But a ghost in the past returns and destroys Akabeko Restaurant, his favorite dining place. Beneath the wreckage, Kenshin finds a note with the word "Junchu" in it. What's that supposed to mean? What's bound to happen to the legendary swordsman? Well, no one knows yet. That's why we all have to watch Rurouni Kenshin: Final Chapter Part I - The Final as soon as it hits the theaters and the streaming services!
