“Trust & Betrayal is dark, rich storytelling done in a way that doesn’t even feel like anime.”
- Todd Douglass AnimeMaki.net

“…no company has showed such a solid devotion to preserving the original Japanese presentation than Aniplex.”
- Miquel Concepcion Examiner.com

“…it’s leagues beyond what we had in the US before on DVD and it’s a fantastic looking release overall. Very recommended.”

About Rurouni Kenshin

Based on the self-titled Manga by Nobuhiro Watsuki (published in Shonen Jump by Shueisha). Rurouni Kenshin originally aired from 1996-1998 in Japan. The story follows Kenshin Himura, a highly skilled swordsman and his journey across Japan during the Meiji era. Kenshin wanders Japan seeking forgiveness from his past of death and destruction. The story of the legendary assassin searching for redemption has been recognized worldwide as one of the greatest anime titles of all time. The hit anime would later be released to the US audience under the name “Samurai X” in 2003. As the popularity of Rurouni Kenshin increased, a series of OVAs would be released as a prequel to the original series. The two OVAs entitled “Trust & Betreyal” and “Reflection” will get the releases they deserve as they will be digitally re-mastered to High Definition Blu-Ray format.
