Rurouni Kenshin Movie

Mar 13, 2013

Story

Pretty boring, and removed from the rest. It really has nothing to do with the OVAs and is more similar to the show. However it is alot worse. The story could have been quite good but it is not handled that well.

Animation

Lower in standard than the rest. You would expect an animated film version of an anime to have beter quality than the show. Surprisingly though it is the same. This means that is is not quite as good as the other OVAs which it will measured up against. The starting sequence is good but the animation never reaches those heights again.

Sound

The music is very good though. It sets the scene well and heightens the emotions, even though these are overplayed slightly. The voices are only O.K.   

Characters

All just thrown in for a film really. If you haven't watched the series then this film will not make much sense. 

Overall

Watch if you need completeness, not as good as rest. There is the simila tragic consequences that seem to follow Kenshin around. If you enjoyed the show you should watch this, but not really otherwise.

6/10 story
7/10 animation
7.5/10 sound
7/10 characters
6.9/10 overall
