Gentlemen, we'd like you to meet this woman:
That's Maryjun Takahashi. And these are the three things that you need to know about her right now:
1) She's half-Pinay and half-Japanese, born to a Japanese father and a Filipino mother.
2) She's a 26-year-old fashion model and actress.
3) She's set to star in the sequel Rurouni Kenshin 2 as Yumi Komagata, the lover of the series' most infamous (and most awesome, might we add) villain, Makoto Shishio. Man, it's been a long time since we uttered that fearsome name.
The sequel to the 2013 hit will follow the Juppongatana story arc. The movie will be divided into two parts. The first, Rurouni Kenshin: The Great Kyoto Fire will premiere in Japan on August 1. Rurouni Kenshin: The End of a Legend screens shortly thereafter on September 13.
We're already hyped to see some of the most memorable stories in Samurai X come to life. And given the first movie's general awesomeness, we simply can't wait. The addition of a half-Pinay beauty such as Maryjun Takahashi is simply a bonus.
And now we do anew the first thing we do whenever we meet a new, hot girl: Google her. Go to the next page for a look at what we've discovered!
