YesAsia Editorial Description

The Rurouni Kenshin saga comes to an explosive finale with The Legend Ends, the second part of the two-part live-action sequel of the blockbuster film. Picking up from the events of Kyoto Inferno, The Legend Ends continues the original manga series "Kyoto Arc," depicting the epic battle between former Meiji government assassin Kenshin (Sato Takeru) and bandaged terrorist Shishio (Fujiwara Tatsuya). Topping the Japanese box office for four consecutive weekends, The Legend Ends is the thrilling ending that fans have been waiting for!

After the events of Kyoto Inferno, Kenshin is rescued by Seijuro (Fukuyama Masaharu), the swordsman who taught Kenshin everything he knows about swordsmanship. After a lengthy training, Kenshin recovers and is ready to continue his pursuit of Shishio, who is taking his battleship to attack Edo. Meanwhile, Aoshi (Iseya Yusuke), who is still out to defeat Kenshin to avenge his fallen comrades, is approaching closer to his target.

This edition includes visual commentary, stage events and trailers. It also comes with a booklet and a set of character cards.

Professional Review of "Rurouni Kenshin: The Legend Ends (2014) (DVD) (Deluxe Edition) (Japan Version)"

April 2, 2015

This professional review refers to Rurouni Kenshin: The Legend Ends (2014) (Blu-ray) (English Subtitled) (Hong Kong Version)
Picking up directly after the cliff-hanger finale of Kyoto Inferno, Otomo Keishi's Rurouni Kenshin trilogy comes to a close with The Legend Ends, seeing the eponymous swordsman gearing up for an almighty showdown with his evil nemesis. Shot back to back with its predecessor, the film has the series regulars all returning to complete the manga's popular "Kyoto Arc" and was another big hit, ruling the Japanese box office for an impressive four consecutive weekends. Unsurprisingly, this review contains major spoilers for anyone who hasn't yet seen either the 2012 Rurouni Kenshin or Kyoto Inferno.

The film opens with Meiji government assassin turned pacifist Kenshin (Sato Takeru) washing up on a beach, having failed to rescue Kaoru (Takei Emi) after her being thrown off the battleship of the maniacal Shishio (Fujiwara Tatsuya). Found by his former master Seijuro (Fukuyama Masaharu), Kenshin begs to be taught the secret of his ultimate move, despite having sworn never to kill again, knowing that this is his only chance to defeat Shishio and stop him destroying the country. Suitably prepared, he heads off to confront the villain and his men in Edo, ready to do whatever it takes to bring down his deranged opponent. Meanwhile, Aoshi (Iseya Yusuke) continues his own vengeful pursuit of Kenshin, whose friends desperately try to track him down and add their strength to his in the battle against Shishio.

By now, anyone who has seen the prior instalments of Otomo Keishi's new Rurouni Kenshin trilogy should have a very good idea of what to expect, and thankfully The Legend Ends keeps up the high level of quality and craftsmanship the series has displayed throughout. With Kyoto Inferno having clearly been a build-up teaser for the final chapter, the pressure was always going to be on for Legend to deliver on promises made, though thankfully Otomo manages to do this successfully, showing a steady hand through to the end. A three film series obviously results in a lot of subplots and loose ends alongside the main narrative, and these are all tied up satisfactorily, Kenshin's crusade to bring an end to Shishio's lunacy and to take on his own personal demons coming to a conclusion which, if not exactly unpredictable, certainly fits. Otomo again shows a pleasing attention to character detail, and while the story is undoubtedly Kenshin's, the rest of the supporting cast all get their own resolutions, even poor, mad Shishio, who stands out as one of the genre's most interesting villains for some time. Praise goes to all the performers involved, each of whom has turned in stalwart work across the three films, giving it a level of depth and engagement not generally seen in manga or anime live action adaptations.

The film also scores highly when it comes to action, offering up the many battles and tense duels that Kyoto Inferno laid the groundwork for. With plenty of swordfights and set pieces along the way to Kenshin's inevitable clash with Shishio, the film moves at a brisk pace, with the training sequences giving it an at times pleasantly old-fashioned feel. When it arrives, the sequence with Kenshin and his comrades storming Shishio's huge battle ship is suitably bombastic and thrilling, and the climatic bout is, happily, just about worth having waited three films for. Excellent action choreography and impressive production values help, and the film looks great during both its loud and quiet moments, giving it the grand air of a top-pedigree epic.

The Rurouni Kenshin trilogy has been entertaining and enjoyable from the start, and The Legend Ends provides it with the conclusion it deserves. Although there's nothing particularly new or clever about the narrative arc or its themes, the series has served fans well throughout, each instalment standing comfortably among the better Japanese sword films of the few years.
