ADV FILMS ANNOUNCES DECEMBER 28 RELEASE OF SAMURAI X: REFLECTION DIRECTOR'S CUT

The tale of assassin Ruroni Kenshin's atonement for his sins continues with the December 28, 2004 release of Samurai X: Reflection Director's Cut. This new feature length edition of the DVD hit includes plenty of hot new extras and footage never before seen in the U.S.

Samurai X (also known as Rurouni Kenshin) is an extraordinarily popular international franchise, including both a television series and four OVAs. The OVAs, which appeared after the television series, expand on and detail the background and history of the eponymous 19th-century samurai assassin.

Kenshin is a wanderer, a lost soul, cursed to seek atonement for his life in the bloody
trade of the samurai, known throughout all Japan as the Hitokiri Battousai ("sword-bearing master
assassin"). The peacetime after a long war to overthrow a corrupt government has brought no
peace to Kenshin, despite a vow to draw his sword only for the protection of those in need. Now
his wife Kaoru steadfastly awaits his return, mourning his absence as well as that of their son,
Kenji. Will Kenshin return before she dies of grief? The past meets the present fifteen years since
Kenshin left.

Samurai X: Reflection Director's Cut ($29.98 SRP) is a DVD-only release with a 98-minute feature, including both English 5.1 and Japanese 5.1 language versions with English subtitles. Extras include: interviews with the original Japanese vocal cast, clean opening and closing animation, production sketches (video), commentary with J Shanon Weaver (Kenshin), Gray Haddock (Sanosuke) & Katherine Catmull (Kaoru), a reversible cover and ADV previews.
