The scenes that show Kenshin as the Hitokiri Batosai in the beginning of the film and throughout the flashbacks is incorrect. Kenshin is shown with the full X shaped scar on his right cheek, even though Kenshin swore that he would stop killing after Samurai X: Trust and Betrayal. See more »

Maybe good if your a fan of the series.
1 October 2003 | by See all my reviews

Maybe good if your a fan of the series. But for my part, Reminisence is the Real Kenshin film. It has much better animation and sound, but this film is older so you have to take that into consideration. Even apart from that I think Reminisence was deeper and touched me In a way this film never could. The fight scenes are stylised and boreing, the characters dont seem convinceing, the story is ok but could have been better executed. All in all, not a bad film, but it didnt stand out. Average 6(10)
