Live action manga adaptations: Attack on Titan and Rurouni Kenshin

I'm not even halfway finished watching it yet, and I feel like I can safely say that the first Attack on Titan live action movie is pretty bad. The smaller titans are genuinely disturbing, but beyond that I'm not seeing much that makes me want to get the next movie.


The first live action Rurouni Kenshin movie, on the other hand, is actually worth watching if you're a fan of the franchise and like lots of fight scenes. I'm looking forward to seeing Part 2 soon.


And yeah, I'm still not reading very much.
