The Rurouni Kenshin Fun Booth at Glorietta

Best Blogger Tips
I first saw the Rurouni Kenshin Costume Exhibit booth at Toy Con 2014. I was very excited and couldn't wait to write about it when I got home. But alas! Due to time constraints, the planned draft didn't even get a head start. But the Rurouni Kenshin hype is still on and when I visited the Glorietta Cinema lobby to check out movie schedules, I found the booth there. I said to myself, "Yes! I have been given another chance to write about it!"

I felt the same excitement and the same OMG feels as when I saw the costumes for the first time. I couldn't believe that the actors fit into those costumes. It seemed too small for real. Hehehe

There was also photo walls which showed stills from the movie. 



What made this visit even more special for me is the participation of Shinkendo Philippines. Sir Julius invited me for a photo op of the students and the booth. Of course, I happily agreed. I love taking photos. Hehehe




Sir Julius was the one who showed me the booth. (^_^)

And here comes the best part, I saw autographed stuff from actors Takeru Satoh and Munetaka Aoki, and from Rurouni Kenshin director Keishi Otomo. (^_^) I may have missed them in the Red Carpet Premiere but this is as close as I can get. Yay!

Le good stuff! (^_^)

Of course, there is the autograph of the lead actor, Takeru Satoh

Sir Julius gave me information about Shinkendo Philippines and showed me the signed bamboo sword, books, and photos of their Master from Japan, who is a real samurai! Woah! Out of amazement, the only reply I said was, "May samurai pa pala ngayon?" (There are still samurai in these times?") Hehehehe~ I guess I believed the movie The Last Samurai a bit too much. Hehehe

If you're interested in learning swordsmanship, you can contact Shinkendo Philippines on Facebook. Luckily, I took a photo of their flyer. (^_^) Or you can visit their fun booth in Glorietta, up until August 25 only. 



Now, that's what I call a very amusing and educational experience in a fun booth! Have you watched Rurouni Kenshin: Kyoto Inferno, yet? Cinemas are almost full when I checked it out. Hmmm... It would be better if you reserve your seat online. 



This movie is worth is absolutely worth it! I'm very happy that it gets the full attention it deserves now. The first Rurouni Kenshin was very excellent that I gave it a 5-star rating on my reviews. Of course, Kyoto Inferno is just as good! (^_^)
