It is like the anime, just a review or summary. There is some changes, like you get to see Yukimura Chizuru use her demon power, but other than that don't waste your time watching this. I regret buying this, and watching it. It is basically the same to the anime but it is split shorter and have some few new moments that have nothing really to do with the main part. You will get to see her brother more but it is not worth it.

First of all, it's very important that you have already watched the TV serie before you watch this movie. This is NOT a recap movie, it DOES has some elements of the anime, but it's a RETELLING of the first story, with a completely different setting.

I started this film in the hope of initiating myself to the historical series because it is true that the "historical" genre isn't my cup of tea.

Why didn't I enjoy this movie and why wouldn't I recommend it?

This movie seems to have skipped many important passages. We move from a plot to another without understanding the link between the two stories.
The characters have no characterization and the read more

i apologise in advance; my reviews are not as detailed as others...

essentially this story is about the rise and fall of the shinsengumi. it's a historical action drama (with a supernatural element).

i much preferred this film version the the series. as 12 episodes had to be condensed into 95 minutes, the pacing is better, although the drawback is that there is less character development and some of the incidents that lead the characters to act as they do, such as when 2 members of the shinsengumi left, had to be glossed over. some of the wonderful humour of the first few episodes read more
