Comment from Ken Sato, (role of Kenshin Himura)

I am sorry for everyone who was looking forward to the release of the movie.
We hope that everyone will be able to come to the theater with peace of mind and return as soon as possible, and to that end, I feel that it is important to make steady progress step by step.
And next year’s release date, let’s welcome each other in good health and be sure to see you again.
I wish you happiness every day.
Ken Sato

Comment from Director Hiroshi Otomo

Since the studio was closed after the declaration of emergency, all work was stopped, and even after that, various preparations such as finishing work and public release could not be done. It’s a pity that we were aspiring to “Let’s revive the smoky entertainment” with “Rurouni Kenshin.” I am very sorry for everyone who was looking forward to the release.
To the new release date, we will make an effort to improve the quality as much as possible, create a work that many people can enjoy, and see it in a full and passionate theater. I have an unwavering commitment to the work.
In the era of after-corona, I would like to work on the rest of the finishing work with soul so that I can deliver more powerful impression, courage, and hope, so please look forward to “Rurouni Kenshin Final Chapter” by all means.
Director Hiroshi Otomo
