Origins Synopsis:

Fans of the samurai anime genre will be awestruck by this riveting film adaption of the classic franchise!
In the wake of a brutal civil war, Kenshin Himura, once a feared killer, turns his back on bloodshed and vows to carry a reversed-edge blade for the rest of his days. But Kenshin soon finds that the world around him is greatly changed. Rapid modernization has given rise to new villains driven by power and greed—and from the shadows of the past, the famed assassin Makoto Shishio has returned to wreak havoc across Japan. Together, with the beautiful kendo instructor Kaoru and a colorful cast of allies, Kenshin embarks on a quest to protect the innocent from those that would do them harm. In a staggering display of swordplay and martial arts mastery, Kenshin will attempt to survive his promise to face his own blade—before spilling the blood of his enemies!

Don’t forget that the second movie “Kyoto Inferno” is coming to theaters September 12, 13 and 14—tickets are available now at funimationfilms.com/rurounikenshin. The theatrical movie run is in Japanese with English subtitles.
