"The Final/The Beginning" reveals Kenshin's past ― the story behind the cross-shaped scar on his cheek. "The Final" explains the relation of Kenshin's cross-shaped scar with his late wife, Tomoe, and how Tomoe's brother Enishi, also the head of Shanghai Mafia, seeks revenge against Kenshin and started a series of attacks!

By the way, Enishi is amazing! Arata Mackenyu who plays the role is superb! Not only that the incredible wall running and high-speed rotation shown from the beginning look so real, his brutality, madness, as well as extreme and unusual grudge against Kenshin are perfectly expressed through the eye movements and posture even without any words. I couldn't move my eyes away from the biceps too! Are they "a part of the weapon"!?

Above all, the inspiring and touching drama is probably the most attracting part, with Kenshin seen as a perpetrator and Enishi who decides to execute the judgement with his own hands. The storyline of "The Final" is very deep, but it is a must-see before watching "The Beginning", which is scheduled to be released on 4 June (Friday)! (Editorial Dept.: Nika)
