The action flick is slashing its way toward Blu-ray in November.

In an early announcement to retailers, FUNimation is preparing 'Rurouni Kenshin Part 1: Origins' for Blu-ray on November 1.

Fans of the samurai genre will be awestruck by this riveting film adaption of the classic franchise! In the wake of a brutal civil war, the legendary and feared killer Kenshin Himura throws down his sword and vows to turn his back on bloodshed. Choosing instead to live his life as a peaceful wanderer, Kenshin soon finds that the world around him is rapidly changing—and not for the better. A sadistic drug lord, Kanryu, oppresses the people, poisoning them with opium and stealing what little they have left. When this greed-driven monster threatens the beautiful kendo instructor Kaoru, Kenshin can no longer stand idly by. Together with his street fighter comrade Sanosuke, Kenshin sets his sights on a showdown with Kanryu and his deadly henchmen. In a staggering action sequence for the ages, longtime fans will find out if Kenshin can survive his promise to face his own blade—before spilling the blood of his enemies!

The Blu-ray will feature 1080p video, a Dolby TrueHD 5.1 soundtrack, and supplements will include: Rurouni Kenshin Cast Interview Collection; Deleted Scenes; Making Of; Original Trailer; News Flash; Super News Flash; and Previews.

Suggested list price for the Blu-ray is $34.98.
