Movie trailer


The second movie and third movie have bee released in Japan. No links yet for even the second movie. Hopefully, it doesn't take months.
Loved this! Ruroni Kenshin is my all time favorite anime series I cant belive I never heard about them making this. I also cant believe WB distributed it. There is one thing that keeps this movie from the greatness of the original series, but its a major thing. They focus on Kanryu and make him the main baddie but leave out the Oniwabanshu? WTF?! I mean they had a guy that dressed like Hanya but he wasnt disfigured, again WTF? That one guy pretending to be Battosai could have been easily swapped out for the leader of the Oniwabanshu and my favorite character in RK(and second favorite anime character)Aoshi Shinomori. Thats a big loss to the story, Aoshi and the Oniwaban contibute alot to the main story throughout the majority of RK.
Me to me to me to!! I've watched all the sagas and the ovas :) I can't wait

I know right? I missed this too >__<
why.. why.. did i miss this one!!>.<
@EthanKant Just an FYI in case you didn't know there will be a part 2 to this film.. I can't wait!!!
It is obvious whoever made this movie have a lot of love for cinema. The whole movie is frame after frame of moving art. The action scenes are not only well choreographed but beautiful to look at as well. My only complain is the movie is too long for its paper thin plot with typical japanese manga muddled philosophy. Nevertheless this film is like a very expensive dessert one cannot bear to sink a fork into.
