Kenshin wanders through Japan with a reverse-edged sword during the transition of the samurai age to the New Age. When Kenshin helps the idealistic Kaoru Kamiya from the gangsters of the powerful opium drug lord Kanryuu Takeda that wants her school for his production of opium, Kaoru invites Kenshin to stay in the school. But the drug chemist Megumi Takani escapes from Kanryuu and seeks shelter in the school. Meanwhile the killer Battosai is murdering police officers and leaving messages attached to their bodies. When Kanryuu poisons the population to get the school, Kenshin and the street fighter Sanosuke Sagara join forces to attack their common enemy.Written by

Though Gein, the masked henchman of Kanryu, is based off the character of the same name from the manga, he has much more in common with Han'nya from the manga. Gein is heavily scarred and works as Kanryu's messenger, like Han'nya, while his outfit, personality, and wire-work is more inline with Gein from the manga. His mask is a combination of both Gein and Han'nya's masks. Neither of them use guns or a wakizashi in the manga, however. See more »

Rurouni Kenshin Trilogy is the best anime based live action movie ever! All three of it are the best. I didn't really appreciated the anime series when I was a kid but then I grew up and I saw the first movie. I was like, "Wow, even live action movies based on an anime is possible!" Because of this movie, I'm now interested to watch the anime series.
The story was great, the characters were also great, even the setting. This is the movie that made samurai battles more realistic. As anime fan, I also like this movie from start to finish. The sequels were also great and I might review those in the future.
In conclusion, Rurouni Kenshin is a must watch especially to Samurai X fans and other anime fans out there.
