Added DiffLines:

* JapanesePronouns: As in the original manga, Kenshin overwhelmingly uses the old-fashioned "sessha" as his personal pronoun. When he walks in on Jin'e and the kidnapped Kaoru, he uses "ore" and "kisama", both for the only time in the movie. This is very, ''very'' bad...[[SuperpoweredEvilSide for Jin'e]].

* TrademarkFavoriteFood: Sano is quite fond of raw eggs and will often down one before a fight. [[WordOfGod Director Ohtomo]] stated at the LA Eiga Festival that Sano's fondness for raw eggs became his character tic because the character tic of his manga/anime counterpart, having a fish bone in his mouth, would look too silly in real life.

* AdaptationDistillation: [[JustifiedTrope Understandable]], given how long the anime ran. It's essentially the first eleven episodes condensed into two hours, with a sprinkling of Tsuiokuhen and Saito arriving way too early in the series. Considering how disparate the source episodes are, they are wonderfully meshed into one coherent story.
