Rurouni Kenshin releases first trailer for the ‘final chapter’ films

The first trailer for the upcoming Rurouni Kenshin live-action ‘final chapter’ movies was released online on Friday.

The trailer for ‘Rurouni Kenshin Saishusho’ films was uploaded on the Warner Bros Japan YouTube page as well as the movie’s social media accounts.

The first part of the sequel, titled the ‘The Final’ will be released in Japan on July 3, while the second movie, titled ‘The Beginning’ will be shown on August 7.

The two films will cover the original manga’s Jinchu arc, which features a new villain, a mysterous weapon dealer named Enichi. The films will also tell the origin story of Kenshin Himura’s cross-shaped scar in his cheek.

The first ‘Rurouni Kenshin’ live action movie was screened in the Philippines in 2012. Its sequels, Kyoto Inferno and The Legend Ends were released locally two years later.
