Rurouni Kenshin: Kyoto Inferno Heats Up The Summer With A New U.S. Trailer

The latest trailer is online for director Keshi Otomo’s Rurouni Kenshin: Kyoto Inferno following this month’s limited U.S. release of Rurouni Kenshin: Origins. Funimation Films required the rights to the live-action trilogy earlier this year as all three films have become a cult hit since their successful commercial releases in Japan dating back to 2012, and starring actor Takeru Satoh in the title role.

SYNOPSIS: Former assassin Kenshin Himura and his friends are called back into action when a ghost from the past era rises to wreak havoc across Japan. Makoto Shishio, another ex-assassin, was betrayed, burned, and left for dead at the end of the war.

 

Badly scarred—but very much alive—Shishio has put together an army and aims to overthrow the new government—burning anything and killing anyone who stands in his way. After witnessing his brutality firsthand, Kenshin agrees to intervene and help keep the peace. Will the wanderer with a blade bathed in blood be able to withstand the fury of the swordsman forged by fire?
