Those wishing to experience Rurouni Kenshin 2: Kyoto Inferno but missed out on its limited theatrical run are in luck; as Warner Bros UK have recently confirmed that they will be releasing the film on Blu-ray and DVD within the UK.
Due for release on the 6th April 2015 Rurouni Kenshin 2: Kyoto Inferno will be available as a steelbook Blu-ray and a standard DVD; which is a similiar release plan to the previously confirmed Black Butler film.
As you might have expected Rurouni Kenshin 2: Kyoto Inferno is the sequel – and follw up – to the previous Rurouni Kenshin film; as the synopsis explains:
Kenshin Himura (Takeru Satoh) is a legendary swordsman, a hero in the wars preceding the turbulent fall of Japan’s Shogunate in the 19th century. Once feared as ‘Battosai the Killer’, with the arrival of the new Japanese age and nursing the pain of losing many of his companions he is now a lone wanderer, roaming the land seeking to be of service to those in need. Fate however, had taken hold of Kenshin’s future and was now guiding him toward a new destiny.
Without warning he is summoned by Home Minister Toshimichi Okubo (Kazufumi Miyazawa), and is informed that Makoto Shishio (Tatsuya Fujiwara), his successor in the service of the new government, believed to be dead, is in fact both alive and plotting in Kyoto. Driven by a burning revenge Shishio commands a private army of bloodthirsty mercenaries and is planning to overthrow the government and will stop at nothing to take control. In that moment it becomes clear why he has been summoned; Kenshin is the only man alive who can find Shishio… and stop him.
Rurouni Kenshin 2: Kyoto Inferno will be available on Blu-ray and DVD from the 6th April 2015; in the meantime the first film, Rurouni Kenshin, is currently available on both Blu-ray and DVD.
