      So I bought this for a movie night with some of my closest friends and they've never seen the anime series or OVA movies. And its surprisingly an anime movie adaption done pretty well. Though it kind of does skip almost over one character entirely that was relevant in the show, the one kid I can't remember his name. Like his introduction to the show was an entire episode, in the movie here though he just sorta appears and just stands around in the background and doesn't really do much. My friends never seeing the series before did like it so its welcoming to new comers to the series. However if you are a fan checking this out you'll like the Trust & Betrayal bits you see very briefly. Its worth checking out and shows that Japan can handle some adaptations better than Hollywood can haha.

      Rurouni kenshin origins part one is exactly like the tv show rurouni kenshin wandering samurai. This movie has the dubbed voice cast dubbing the Japanese actors into English. The Japanese cast has done a great job working on all three parts of starring in the three movies. These movies must have been a very great successful production of the director and based off the work from shown jump manga company in Tokyo, Japan.

      If you're a fan of the series, you shouldn't miss this adaptation. They change several things from the source material but that's to be expected. The anime and manga are full of events and characters that could no way be captured in 3 movies. If you know nothing of the series, it's still worth a watch.

      Almost perfect adaptation of the anime, although did think that the second and third movies were actually better movies. Comes with UV code for both subtitled and dubbed editions of the movie. Very happy to find this on the shelf after Best Bu carried the second and third movies at release. Highly recommended if you liked the anime.

      If you liked the anime you will like this. The two main characters are the best part of the movie they remind me of the characters of the anime it's basically the first season of the anime crammed into three movies don't expect Gore you can clearly tell impalements or on the side of the body

      The anime will always have a special place in my heart, so I was a little wary of trying this. There were obviously some changes from the manga and anime, but I thought they did a pretty good job of consolidating things down. We watched the dub for my husband, and that was much better than I expected!

      One of the best live action anime adaptations I have ever seen. I highly recommend this trilogy to anyone who is a can of the anime or just a fan of Asian cinema in general.

      this trilogy is fairly good to watch and the fight scenes are for the most part really good. Some of the moves that they have Kenshin do are a bit weird and really dont jive to well with the anime and how its explained there. Other than that it is fun to get back into this series after a long time.
