Anime: Rurouni Kenshin: The Movie
© 1997 和月伸宏/集英社・フジテレビ・SPEビジュアルワークス
The war against the Tokugawa Shogunate ended years ago. But there are some who are not happy with the outcome. Shigure Takimi watched his friends and family get slashed down in the name of freedom and prosperity. Now he and a band of desparate rebels have sworn to settle one final score. Only one man stands in their way: Rurouni Kenshin. Will the former assassin take up his sword to fight again? When Shigure discovers Kenshin's true identity and his fight becomes a personal vendetta, the young hero will have no choice.

Anime Quotes

  • Kenshin HIMURA

    Perhaps the distant part of the sky always seems clearest, so that we will always strive to reach it.

  • Kenshin HIMURA

    I will bear your pain for you now, and find a path of repentance.

  • Kenshin HIMURA

    A sword is a weapon. Kenjutsu is the art of killing. Whatever pretty words you use to speak of it, this is its true nature. What Kaoru-dono says are the words of one who has never dirtied her hands. An idealistic joke….I like Kaoru-dono’s idealism better than its true nature. If one can ask so much, I want the world to accept this joke as its true nature.

  • Kenshin HIMURA

    You believe that the strong exist to cull the weak. To use them as food. But you are mistaken . . . The strong exist, not to feed off of the weak, but to protect them!

  • Kenshin HIMURA

    The scar of my past will determine my future!
