Rurouni Kenshin! First Movie and Anime S1

Can a sword forge the path to a new era? Is it possible for a former assassin to find redemption and peace? How does a beloved anime like Rurouni Kenshin transition into a live-action format? Our discussion isn’t just for those familiar with all iterations of Rurouni Kenshin, as we focus on the ethical and historical questions that are as relevant today as they were in the Meiji era. Dive with us into the first movie and the inaugural season of the anime, exploring the complex journey of the pacifist wanderer, Kenshin Himura.

Riki Hayashi and Matthew Fox explore the ethical questions from the stories geeks love—superheroes, sci-fi, anime, fantasy, video games, and so much more.
