UK Anime News reports that Amazon UK is listing a home release of the live-action film Rurouni Kenshin: Kyoto Inferno (Rurouni Kenshin: Kyoto Taika-hen) on April 6, as both a DVD and as a Blu-ray Steelbook. According to Amazon, the distributor will be Warner Home Video.
The middle part of a trilogy, Rurouni Kenshin: Kyoto Inferno (Rurouni Kenshin: Kyoto Taika-hen) was the highest-grossing Japanese live-action film of 2014. In the story, Kenshin has settled into his new life with Kaoru and his other friends when he is approached with a request from the Meiji government. Against Kaoru's wishes, Kenshin reluctantly agrees to go to Kyoto and help keep his country from falling back into civil war. The film is rated '15' for 'strong bloody violence and injury detail.'
The first live-action Rurouni Kenshin film was already given a home release by Warner in 2014.
