"Rurouni Kenshin: The Final" is set for an April 23 release in Japan. It remains unclear whether it will be shown in the Philippines. 

This will be followed by "Rurouni Kenshin: The Beginning," which centers on how Himura got his cross-shaped scar. It is scheduled to premiere in Japan on June 4. 

The first live-action "Rurouni Kenshin" movie had a limited run in the Philippines in 2012. Its two sequels enjoyed a wider local release in 2014. 

All of the movies were adapted from the manga of the same name by Nobuhiro Watsuki.
