  • Makoto Shishio, Kenshin’s crazed successor and now enemy, is about to overthrow the new government of Japan! Can Kenshin stop him without breaking his vow to kill no more?

    Kenshin Himura (Takeru Satoh) is a legendary swordsman in the wars accompanying the turbulent fall of Japan’s Shogunate in the 19th century. Once feared as ‘Battosai the Killer’, with the arrival of the ‘new age’ in Japanese history he became a wanderer, roaming the land seeking to be of service to those in need. Arriving in Tokyo, he vanquished Kanryu Takeda, a tycoon trying to finance weapons purchases with opium sales in a bid to rule the world, and his bodyguard Jin’e Udo. Since then Kenshin has been living peacefully with his companions Kaoru Kamiya (Emi Takei), Sanosuke Sagara (Munetaka Aoki), Megumi Takani (Yu Aoi), and Yahiko Myojin (Kaito Oyagi). But now he is summoned by Home Minister Toshimichi Okubo (Kazufumi Miyazawa), and learns that Makoto Shishio (Tatsuya Fujiwara), his successor in the service of the new government during the battle to overthrow the Shogun, is both alive and plotting in Kyoto. Betrayed by the new government, who set what they thought was his dead body on fire, Shishio is now swathed in bandages and with a private army of bloodthirsty mercenaries is planning a coup d’etat. ‘You are the only one who can stop Shishio,’ Okubo tells Kenshin. Shishio, Kenshin’s equal in fighting skill and quick thinking, is a crazed and fearsome enemy.

    To save Japan from destruction, what painful decision must Kenshin make? A unique world created on a scale never before seen in a Japanese movie!

  • The story takes place at the dawn of the Meiji Era in 1880, set in Ezo (now Hokkaido), the northernmost island of Japan. The Tokugawa Shogunate has just collapsed, and the Ainu aborigines strive to settle the land alongside the newly established government.

    The main character, Jubei Kamata, is a relix of the Tokugawa Shogunate. During the Shogunate, his name alone terrorized Kyoto as he slew countless loyalists in the name of the Shogun. After the fall of the Shogunate, he fought in a series of battles, then vanished from sight following the fierce War of Goryokaku. Despite a relentless manhunt by the new government, he disappeared into thin air.

    More than ten years have passed. Jubei has fathered children with an Ainu woman and lives in a secluded hamlet, barely eking out a living. His wife succeeded in transforming him from a man who kills, but she dies, leaving him to a quiet life raising his children and tending her grave. However poverty leads Jubei to abandon his resolve to bury his sword. Once again, he finds himself ensnared in a life of violence. With his former comrade-in-arms, he confronts hypocrites who profess to represent justice.

    Again, in his new era, a vicious circle of violence begins. Men at the mercy of a turbulent age are pitted against each other in the grandeur of Hokkaido’s natural setting. The fighting and horseback scenes are on a scale that rivals those of American westerns.
