Rurouni Kenshin: Ishinshishi e no Requiem
The war against the Tokugawa Shogunate ended years ago. But there are some who are not happy with the outcome. Shigure Takimi watched his friends and family get slashed down in the name of freedom and prosperity. Now he and a band of desparate rebels have sworn to settle one final score. Only one man stands in their way: Rurouni Kenshin. Will the former assassin take up his sword to fight again? When Shigure discovers Kenshin's true identity and his fight becomes a personal vendetta, the young hero will have no choice.
During the Bakumatsu Period, death filled Japan as people fought for what was in their hearts. A young man took up the sword to fight for the Meiji government: he was known as Hitokiri Battousai. It is now the 12th year of the Meiji Period, and Hitokiri Battousai is now known as Himura Kenshin; he atones for his sins by carrying a reversed-blade sword that will never kill again. During a trip to Yokohama, Kenshin meets a samurai named Takimi Shigure who lost a close friend, Takatsuki Gentatsu, during the conflicts in the past. Takimi blames himself foolishly for his friend’s death, and vows to take revenge upon this corrupt Meiji government who wasted Gentatsu's sacrifice. As swords weave blood from their masters' enemies upon the bloody ground, one thing is certain: revenge will bring only suffering and regret is a miserable feeling.
