Synopsis:
Kenshin Himura is a legendary swordsman in the wars accompanying the turbulent tall of Japan's Shogunate in the 19th century. Once feared as 'Battosai the Killer' he has adopted a peaceful life since the arrival of the 'new age' in Japanese history. But Makoto Shishio, the 'Shadow Killer' who succeeded to Kenshin's position in the service of the new government, has since then been active in the Kyoto underworld. Because he knew too much of the dark side of the new government, he was stabbed and his body set on fire. He survived, however and, wrapped in bandages, has raised an army of disaffected former samurai with the aim of overthrowing the new regime.
Agreeing to a request by Toshimichi Okubo, the Home Minister, Kenshin leaves his friends in Tokyo and sets out for Kyoto. He and Shishio are a match in skill and in wits, but their aims are opposite. Kenshin seeks to preserve the nation without breaking his vow that he will kill no more.

THE TRILOGY CONTINUES - Rurouni Kenshin: Kyoto Inferno review by GF

Spoiler Alert
18/05/2015

If you liked the first part of this Japanese period drama and comedy, the second one won't disappoint.

The lead character Kenshin finds himself leaving his new home to eliminate a myserious masked figure intent on bringing down the new Government. The usual cast of characters and some new ones are all involved and the the action scenes are excellently choreographed.

The love interest takes second stage to the action, but the cliffhanger at the end means the final part is likely to bring to a climax, oine of the best action trilogies of the past couple of years.
