Rurouni Kenshin Deluxe DVD

It’s here!!!

It was a blast watching the live-action Rurouni Kenshin (“Samurai X”) movie in the cinemas, but then the Metro Manila Filmfest came, so all foreign films had to stop screening in the theaters. But I’d pre-ordered the DVD which was going to be released the day after Christmas, and it just arrived yesterday.

This was my first time to order anything from Yesasia.com. I love them now. The price of the RK deluxe dvd was just about the same as the retail price marked on the box, and I got free shipping. I’m ordering the Rurouni Kenshin OST next!

Love the cover.

This is the deluxe DVD region 2 version. I didn’t get the blu-ray because I didn’t have a blu-ray player (yet), but I figured I could always get the BR Deluxe when it comes out with English subtitles. Yes, the Japanese first editions have no subtitles of any language. However, since I’d seen it nine times in the cinema, I’ve pretty much memorized the dialogue.

The DVD comes with a 2nd disc with the director Ōtomo Keishi, star Satoh Takeru, and a couple of other guys I’m assuming are producers doing commentary on the film. The 1st disc has the movie, plus all promotional trailers and videos (TV, etc.), interiews of each main cast member, and videos of the different movie premieres attended by the cast. The videos of the premieres were fun. Of course these had no subtitles either, so I just stare at Take-chan’s pretty face.
