Based on Nobuhiro Watsuki’s manga of the same name, Rurouni Kenshin (Japanese:, Hepburn: Rurni Kenshin; also known as Rurouni Kenshin: Origins in North America) is a Japanese period action-adventure film released in 2012.
Keishi tomo is the director, and both Takeru Satoh and Emi Takei appear in the picture. Set in Japan during the early Meiji period, the novel follows the adventures of a drifter named Himura Kenshin, once known as the assassin Hitokiri Battsai.
As penance for the deaths he caused during the Bakumatsu conflict, Rurouni Kenshin now travels the Japanese countryside protecting the weak and helping the downtrodden.

However, Battsai’s katana has company. Ud Jin-e, a fallen fighter, claims it as his own.Sait Hajime and the other police officers look into the death of an undercover officer, who was likely killed by the Battsai, ten years later.
Sait is skeptical, though, and puts the blame on the wealthy but nasty businessman Takeda Kanry. The old Battsai, now known as Himura Kenshin, also arrives in Tokyo at the same time.
He ends up meeting Kamiya Kaoru, who runs the Kendo school her late father started, while wandering its streets. Battsai’s name has been smeared on her dojo’s reputation, so she assaults Rurouni Kenshin thinking he is the infamous killer; however, Rurouni Kenshin simply has a “reverse-blade sword” (, sakabat) on him.
Meanwhile, Takani Megumi, one of the women who was coerced into producing opium for Takeda Kanry, manages to break free and seek refuge with the police after seeing the murders of her fellow opium producers.
But Ud Jin-e, working for Kanryu, goes after her and ends up killing everyone at the police station in the process. In the confusion that follows, she manages to get away.

She is completely outmatched by him, and she gets hurt throughout the fight; nevertheless, Rurouni Kenshin miraculously emerges and saves the day. Before a swarm of policemen arrive, Jin-e understands Rurouni Kenshin’s secret identity as the actual Battsai, givingRurouni Kenshin and Kaoru an opportunity to escape. Kaoru takes Rurouni Kenshin to the safety of her dojo.
Much later, a gang led by Takeda Kanry tries to seize control of the dojo. Before the cops come, Kenshin defeats the entire gang with few casualties. To protect Kaoru’s dojo from being unfairly accused of inciting the violence, Kenshin voluntarily gets himself arrested and takes the fall for what happened.
When he refuses to help the police since he has pledged never to kill again, Sait recognizes him, they briefly fight, and then Sait lets him go. After being released, Kenshin is met by Kaoru, who recognizes him as someone other than the Battsai who slandered her dojo. After that, Kenshin lives with Kaoru, her lone student, and the boy Myjin Yahiko.

A live-action film based on the manga and anime series Rurouni Kenshin was announced on June 28, 2011.Takeru Satoh (Kamen Rider Den-O) plays Kenshin, Munetaka Aoki plays Sanosuke Sagara, and Emi Takei plays Kaoru in this Warner Bros. and Studio Swan production directed by Keishi tomo.
Tomo claimed his goal was to increase the complexity of the live-action adaptation beyond that of the manga. On August 25, 2012, the movie was released, and its creators have stated their desire to expand the film’s audience and turn it into a series.
The initial offer to make a live-action film adaptation of Rurouni Kenshin occurred soon after the manga ended, and in 2012, Nobuhiro Watsuki claimed that he never says no to an offered project, whether it be a film, anime, or video game.
But that fell through before any serious talks had begun, and thus the idea of making a film never occurred to him. About three years ago, he received another offer, and after much back-and-forth, it eventually materialized.
Watsuki claims he only worked on the script for the first half and reviewed the second half written by others, but was informed that the script may be altered at the director’s whim. The original author expressed general satisfaction with the finished product.
