Movie Reviews

Rurouni Kenshin Season 1
(5 out of 5 stars)

"I'm reviewing the economy boxset season 1 of Rurouni Kenshin. So to start off, what's an economy boxset? It's a boxset that is manufactured to be sold cheaper. Instead of having to buy it for $139.95, you can purchase it for $79.95. All 6 dvds are contained in one dvd case. They still have the japanese and english audio tracks. Some people complain about the subtitles not fitting the english dub. The reason is that the subtitles were made ONLY to fit the japanese audio track. The extras are the same as the $139.95 boxset. There are no custom sleeves for each dvd and no deluxe box to hold them in. That is what makes this one cheaper.

NOTE: THIS IS THE SAME AS THE Rurouni Kenshin Wandering Samurai - Premium Box 1. I think the economy boxset is the better buy because the only difference are the collectable sleeves and box."
The most powerful anime I'll watch with family

"This is another of the great classics of Anime. It combines several major elements (love, philosophy, and action) to form a story that is entertaining while still captivating and profound.

While there is some violence, this is a rare gem among anime in that there is nothing perverse or offensive thrown in to water it down. It sticks to its purpose and doesn't pander to baser interests.

The story spends the right amount of time developing its characters, keeping the cast relatively small so the series isn't devoted to constant introductions, but large enough for variety. It then leaves itself plenty of time to explore its characters and their past, and does a good job of moving between them.

Perhaps most interesting is the philosophy. Samurai are famous for being "poet warriors", possessing both a fighting spirit and a sense of deeper truths. This is expressed beautifully in Kenshin's persona and behavior, not merely in speech, but in his methods and actions.

This is one story that made me feel I had truely gained something of value by watching it."
Kenshin - No Kills Hitokiri!

"Kenshin is among the best animes ever produced. The story is epic and it has plenty of side story humor. The characters for both the good guys and the badguys are not generic typical people. Most of them have a complete past and a story behind them that makes all of them unique.

I gave this Anime a rating of 5 stars for the following reasons:
1.)Completed story
2.)Character uniqueness
3.)Side story humor
4.)Believability (I admit the sword fighting can seem over the top but I am refering to the stories.)
5.)Knowledge (it may seem somewhat silly but this anime is packed with excellent qualities. plus the characters make mistakes and work to correct them, nobody is perfect and it points that in their constant vigilance in making up for what they have done wrong.)

I strongly recommend Season one and Season two of Rurouni Kenshin. Season 3 has the lowest rating becuase the storyline is somewhat generic and the characters are not particularly amazing. This is amazing work and I would advise adding it to any anime collection. Worth every penny.

"This is a great series to spend your money; it is worth it! It has action as well as romance and comedy. It keeps the watchers really entertained and wanting to know what happens next. The characters each have a distinct personality. They are all well rounded characters. Iam an anime fanactic especially when it comes to story lines that has a little bit of romance and comedy but I'm don't like much action... it seems to boring and serious... but this is different. I really recommend this series. You won't regret it!"
