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.
