Rurouni Kenshin live action DVD, Blu-ray release

It has been officially announced that the Rurouni Kenshin Live Action movie will be released on DVD/Blu-ray in Japan on December 26th! It appears so far that there will be a Special Edition version, and a version that comes with just the movie on DVD. The special edition version looks pretty SWEET! It’s currently available to preorder here and is retailing at about $64.25. The standard edition is on preorder here and comes in at a cost of approximately $37. The DVD version is approximately $27.

Here’s a youtube post of Sato Takeru (Himura Kenshin) announcing the DVD release:

The one downside is that it’s not looking like this set will be subtitled in English for us North American fans, but with a release that’s soon onto DVD/Blu-ray and the North American premiere earlier that month, it means that we can probably look forward to our own North American DVD/Blu-ray release soon after! I’m just hoping that they’ll keep the price reasonable, and that the special edition version will be available (not to mention no editing! I just want the movie, and I just want it subtitled!).
