Got my tickets to see it last night

can't wait though it looks like they may be fashioning the final fight around the newest animation OAV vs. the classic tv-series which is disappointing but understandable for a money and time standpoint.

i really wanted to like the first one. Some good scenes, but I guess I just can't connect with that goofy japanese character "humor" where they act stupid one min, then kick ass the next. Probably why I don't like anime, either

In Cleveland we have a Asian mall on 30th and Payne. They have a video store inside that sell a lot of foreign movies. I would think that most of them are bootleg. I stay away from the ones without subtitles, you can find some real gems. I got the first Raid from them, Killzone, Flashpoint, Black Mask and some other outrageous martial art movies.

Can anyone answer the following questions:

1. How can I buy the first Kenshin live action movie on DVD? All I seem to come across are bootlegs online. I'd love to own all three movies one day.

2. Will they ever release the first Kenshin movie, Kyoto Inferno, and End of the Legend in the U.S.?
