Tonight there is a one time opportunity to see Rurouni Kenshin: Trust and Betrayal streaming live from Japan, simulcast in Japan, the US, and Canada for free! Trust and Betrayal is the OVA prequel to the TV series, showing Kenshin going from an idealistic young man to a hardened killer in 19th century Japan. The simulcast is being run on Nico Nico Douga, and you can use the first link in this article to get directly to the streaming page. It starts at 22:00 PST tonight or 01:00 EST (yes, that is 10PM west coast, 1AM Saturday morning east coast time), and will run just over two hours. Do not be late, as it will not be repeated. Thanks to the folks at Anime News Network for the heads up on this one.
