The 3 stars are in no way a reflection of the story, animation, or anything pertinent to the story. It is for this director's cut dvd of the original OVA's trust and betrayal.
This directors cut merges the ova's trust and betrayal. As mentioned by someone else, very little is added, but the reflection's ova directors cut should have more added when it's released in the US.
Reflections is the one that i thought really needed a director's cut. This is coming from someone who is a Rurouni Kenshin fan.
As far as this director's cut for betrayal and trust goes, I was hoping for more. This just felt like they took the breaks out of the original OVA's. When I hear the word's director's cut, I immediately think of restored scenes that the director was forced to cut for one reason or another. This felt like there were no restored scenes, except for the one that someone mentioned in another review above.
Another reason for it only getting three stars, is there are no extra's whatsoever on this disc. The only things they have are language selection, scene selection (Which has moving animation featured for each scene you can select. I always like this!) and lastly some trailers for other anime. There are no extra's!
Buy it? Or don't buy it? hmmm . . . If you're a die hard fan of Rurouni Kenshin, you will buy it without any need for me to coax you into doing so. If you're not a die hard fan, but already own all of the OVA's and are too lazy to use your remote from a sitting or laying down position to press a button to skip past the credits of one act to go into the next act then this is perfect for you!
It may seem like I'm exaggerating a bit, but I assure you I am not.

I got this dvd 2 days ago and let me tell you it is the best! The action is quite spectacular and the visuals are stunning.Any anime fan should get or at least see it, even though i'm just an ordinary anime kind of guy! It is suggested 17+ but hey, im 13 and I enjoyed this as much as any person would, Its got blood and alcohol, Damn! They really should stop talking about saki, theyre obsessed with it!^_^
It is about a boy named Kenshin to some of us whose caretakers get killed. He gets saved by a master of the art of sword known as hiten-mitsurugi.
Its whole visual style is superb. And as everyone says "they mix real life into it that makes it kind of silly" well, they do but it doesnt ruin the movie. This tells you everything you should know before the rurouni kenshin tv series.It has got hell alot of kick ass action. Of course youd think its all action its not, there is a HUGE chunk thats all romanc.It sucks that Tomoe died.But It is still a good dvd.

Samurai X is just a different name that ADV films just made up,well anyway it doesn't matter.This movie is the greatest it actually shows Kenshin's first love "Tomoe". And it also shows how Kenshin turned in to the Hitokiri Battosai in the first place. If you are used to the series then this is nothing like it for three resons.
1.Animation is different.
2.Way more blody.
3.A lot more darker.
But,don't let that stop you from getting it.I will guarantee you 100% satisfaction that you will love this anime more then I do.

Samurai X is (of course) the prelude to the rurouni kenshin series. It starts out with a boy named Shinta (kenshin) traveling with a bunch of slave traders that gets ambushed by bandits and kills everybody but shinta, then a man comes that will become his master later, kills the bandits and saves shinta.
Well I won't ruin it for you go out and buy it they sale it at suncoast,target,best buy,and of course amazon.com.

the first time I saw this, my mouth dropped to the floor. Not as good as the original Rurouni Kenshin, but pretty good

DO NOT READ IF YOU DON'T WANT SOME SPOILERS!!
Now I'm a fan of the Rorouni Kenshin Series and an anime otaku (fan) but when I first saw the Trust/Betryal OVA, I was blown away. The animation is superb and the storyline is much darker and less comical then Rorouni Kenshin. Not that I don't like funny but seeing Kenshin kill mercilessly is something else that should be seen to fully appreciate the series.
The first part (Trust) begins with a stunning crafted (and violent) scene where Shinta (Kenshin) sees his entire slaver "family" killed by bandits. His master-to-be, Hiko, saves him and changes his name to Kenshin.
We skip a couple years and see Kenshin in his late teens (17 or so) where he's an assassin who kills political members. But his assassin career doesn't last, during a mission, he recieves the first slash of his X scar. He meets Tomoe, the fiancee of the man who gave him the scar, soon after. As his comrades are killed in a raid, he and Tomoe escape to the mountains where they become lovers.
The ending is extremely sad where Kenshin, after learning that Tomoe was working to kill him, stumbles blindly through the snow to find her, still contemplating whether to kill her.
He gets the slash on his back we see later in the series turning that time and is almost beaten before he finally gets the sense to swing and kill him. But with the same blow, he kills Tomoe who was trying to protect Kenshin from his opponent's final strike. Just before she dies, she, having learned that Kenshin killed her fiancee, completes his X-shaped scar, before her body falls still.
Kenshin cremates Tomoe in a small house and walks away, his last defense against his killer instinct taken away by his own hands.
This is an overall triumph in Japanese animation. The violence, extreme and graphic at times, is not a reason to skip such a terrific anime. If you are a true Kenshin Fan, you need to see this.
