Rurouni Kenshin The Beginning 2021 DVD Cover – Summary
Rurouni Kenshin The Beginning 2021 DVD Cover. Himura Kenshin was a formidable assassin known as Hitokiri Battousai before he met Kaoru. “Rurouni Kenshin: The Beginning” relates the narrative of a young Kenshin who rose to become the number one assassin for the Ishin Shishi (which subsequently became the “Meiji period”), fighting against the Shogunate in the latter days of the Tokugawa era, and how he received his iconic “X” mark on his left cheek.
Himura Kenshin encountered Yukishiro Tomoe, a lovely young woman who appears peaceful but always has a sorrowful expression on her face, when he was still known as Hitokiri Battousai. Battousai and Tomoe fell in love, but little did he realize that Tomoe was carrying a great burden in her heart that would impact Himura Kenshin’s life forever.
Rurouni Kenshin The Beginning – Synopsis
In the year 1864, samurai Kenshin Himura was renowned as the Battosai, a lethal assassin who had murdered over a hundred men in a single year with his ferocious swordsmanship. When he saves Tomoe Yukishiro from some thugs at an inn, the two steadily develop feelings for one other, eventually leading to marriage. As a result, Kenshin may decide to give up his sword for the sake of love.
Those who favor the Shogunate, on the other hand, will not be so easy on Kenshin. This prequel, which also acts as the final part in the live-action franchise adaptation of the manga and anime, tells the tale of how Kenshin got his iconic star-shaped scar.
