The scenes that show Kenshin as the Hitokiri Batosai in the beginning of the film and throughout the flashbacks is incorrect. Kenshin is shown with the full X shaped scar on his right cheek, even though Kenshin swore that he would stop killing after Samurai X: Trust and Betrayal. See more »
It's incredible isn't it?
Why do people take time to travel all the way to Yokohama just to stare at bring buildings like this one? And they probably like the steam train too.
Fish face pretends like he didn't like the train ride.
I'm starting to regret I bought your train tickets Sanosuke!
Well, I like Japanese architecture better. You have to admit these buildings are all alike, Kenshin.
Well, I guess so. Japan could use some changes. We've caught up with the times.

I say this is more of an extended episode of the series, and the beginning looked like one of the filler episodes of the show. And the story is not much except more of Kenshin's past back to haunt him, and a conspiracy going on about their new friends they meet at the beginning is stirring up. I would say the animation is very good, the effects okay, and more background of Kenshin also. But not all of the characters are there, only a few others make an appearance but others don't. Just the four, Kenshin, Kaoru, Yahiko, Sano, and oh, at least Saitou is back. That's good to see, but you seem fight only a few times, and I also like the poem or haiku in it, and it goes something like this, "the bluest sky is infinitely high and crystal clear." That is something I'll never forget, very beautiful. Recommended to the fans of the show.
