The release date of “Rurouni Kenshin: The Final/The Beginning” has been postponed, but a new release date has been set for April 23 and June 4, 2021, and a new video and poster visual have also been unveiled.
The “Rurouni Kenshin” series, starring Sato Takeshi and directed byOotomo Keishi Otomo, was released in 2012, followed by “Rurouni Kenshin: Kyoto Inferno” and “Rurouni Kenshin: The Legend Ends” in 2014, and the total number of audience numbers has exceeded 9.8 million.
The release date of “Rurouni Kenshin: The Final/The Beginning”, which will be the final part of the film, has been postponed due to the spread of a novel coronavirus, but it has been decided that it will be released on April 23 and June 4, 2021 for two consecutive installments.
“The Final”, in which all the stars of “Ruroken” gather to fight for Kenshin, for a new era, and for the final battle, is the ultimate climax of the story. The reason for the battle goes back to the end of the Edo period, and continues into “The Beginning” which delves into the mystery of the “cross-shaped scar” engraved on Kenshin’s cheek.
The superb action scenes that have overwhelmed viewers throughout the series are still alive and well in this film. The wall-run in front of a large number of enemies and the one-on-one battle scene against the series’ most fearsome enemy, En, although brief, leaves a strong impact and raises expectations even higher.
“Rurouni Kenshin: The Final” opens in theaters on April 23, 2021, and “Rurouni Kenshin: The Beginning” opens in theaters nationwide on June 4, 2021.
