AwfulBy a customer from England , 02 Jul 2004
[Highly rated reviewer]This is nothing like the other
Samurai x dvd?s.
I enjoyed the other samurai x volumes but this was really disappointing.

different...but perhaps not in a good wayBy a customer from Choppington , 17 Jul 2010Taken on its own, this was a good story story with decent animation. It does stick more to the original series than the previous volumes, which can be very jarring, especially for people unfamiliar with the original series and characters. I myself only know a little bit about the original series so I couldn't comment on how closely this followed that series' story. While the story was good, it did feel like an extension of the original series and that there was a huge chunk of plot that I'd missed beforehand. There seemed to be an attempt to link the Kenshin in this series to the Kenshin in the previous episodes, which felt very awkward. For fans of the original series, I'm sure this is pretty nice. As for other viewers, the change of plot, character and design would probably be too jarring to get around.
On it's own, this isn't a bad film. Taken as part of the Samurai X series, it was far too much change to really pull it off successfully. Not the best in the series by a long way
Just for the die-hard fans.By a customer from Plymouth , 02 Feb 2009Vol 3 certainly seems to be lacking something previous Samurai X volumes possessed. I'm not sure if its the look or a different style of writing due to the 12 rating but this defintely suffers in comparison, having said that though the backdrops are still stunning and the fights very well drawn which leaves it superior to most of the Manga out there.
DisappointingBy a customer from Dundee , 15 Jan 2009Jumping away from the series of OVAs this is effectively a filler arc from the series converted into a film. Unfortunately it also feels like a filler arc and is hardly compelling. I also felt some grave mistakes were made, such as animating kenshin the wander in the manner that was traditionally used for the battousai.
RubbishBy Navea (2 reviews) from Machynlleth , 25 Apr 2008The first 2 cds where amazing the anime art was owesome and the colouring exelant Kenshin is just well the perfect gentleman isnt he...in this well all that just gets thrown out the window the colour is completly well ouch hurts your eyes watching it its so bright. i dont understand why they changed so much about it...its the dark passona i like about kenshin and in this hes just to nice! its wierd...
any ways if you like the first 2 disks in the series dont watch this it spoils everything...its like its not even samurai X its like a whole new thing....
Awful!By a customer from Essex , 03 Feb 2006This is so poor, compared to the first 2 volumes. They turned the whole series into some kiddie anime!
Characters have suddenly popped into this volume without any introduction!
Do not bother with this one.
