The flashback to Enishi's revenge scheme in episode two was a major part of the final story arc of the Rurouni Kenshin manga. However, the television series ignored it completely. Thus, this is the only Kenshin anime production in which any scenes from the manga's revenge arc were animated. See more »

Great, only if you've seen the T.V. series and the first OVA.
I thought that the Rurôni Kenshin Seisô hen OVA was great. There are some problems with it though. The lack of explaination of who the characters are is one major flaw in the movie. By the time I saw this OVA though, I saw some of the T.V. series and the first OVA and knew who most of the characters were. Anyone who has not seen the first OVA and the T.V. series may be confused to what's going on. This should only be watched after the first OVA and at least some of the T.V. series. There are many flash backs, like the rest of the Rurouni Rurôni movies, which may also cause some confusion.
I gave this a 9 because I understood what was going, and I like how the battle sequences were done. Without knowledge of who everyone is and what happened in the first OVA, this would be pointless movie to watch.
