A few months ago, I learned from Pi Visuals that Rurouni Kenshin is getting a live-action treatment with a limited release in North America. Unfortunately, none of the theaters near me played the first movie, so I still haven’t seen it.
However, the first film is now available on DVD and Blu-ray. And to promote the release, Funimation released a small clip of the movie (about 2 minutes), featuring Kenshin’s backstory as the Battosai. The clip is subtitled although there is very little dialog (but lots of action). Check it out and enjoy!
