The second film, Rurouni Kenshin Saishūshō The Beginning, will be released on June 4th.

Rurouni Kenshin Saishūshō  The Final


The story begins when Kenshin is confronted by his Brother-in-Law, Yukishiro Enishi, whose sister (Kenshins first wife) was killed by him. Jinchu (Human Punishment) is a campaign led by Enishi with his horde of warriors against Kenshin and his allies to make him suffer for his sins.

Rurouni Kenshin: The Final shooting spanned over 7 months between November 4, 2018 to June 28, 2019. The shooting was carried out in multiple locations with over 6000 extras.

Rurouni Kenshin Saishūshō The Final has its own plot, which is distinct from the manga’s. In the films, Mackenyu plays the antagonist Enishi Yukishiro. Enishi runs a black market gun business on the Chinese mainland, and he used Shishio by selling him weapons and a warship. The film is based on the “Jinchū” arc of the manga, which depicts Kenshin’s fight with the enigmatic arms dealer Enishi. The story of how Kenshin got his cross-shaped scar will be told in Rurouni Kenshin Saishūshō The Beginning.
