Packed with action, romance and historical intrigue, Rurouni Kenshin is one of the most beloved and popular manga series worldwide. Set against the backdrop of the Meiji Restoration, it tells the saga of Himura Kenshin, once an assassin of ferocious power, now a humble rurouni, a wandering swordsman fighting to protect the honor of those in need. A hundred and fifty years ago in Kyoto, amid the flames of revolution, there arose a warrior, an assassin of such ferocious power he was given the title Hitokiri: Manslayer. With his bloodstained blade, Hitokiri Battosai helped close the turbulent Bakumatsu period and end the reign of the shoguns, slashing open the way toward the progressive Meiji Era.  Then he vanished, and with the flow of years became legend.

Himura Kenshin, a humble rurouni, or wandering swordsman, comes to the aid of Kamiya Kaoru, a young woman struggling to defend her father's school of swordsmanship against attacks by the infamous Hitokiri Battosai. But neither Kenshin nor Battosai are quite what they seem...

The beginning of the Tomoe arc (also the basis for the OAV) and it is my favorite part of the manga. Yeah, the rest of the books were good, but frankly, the series majorly drooped towards the middle. It gets interesting again when we meet Enishi, Tomoe's little brother, who is out for vengeance agai...

As always, this manga gets better and better with every volume. We get to meet so many new amazing enemies in this one, and a new person that'll be joining the cast for the duration. It's funny how when I first saw Megumi, our second female character to really take any front-and-center stage in impo...

I've been a fan of the Rurouni Kenshin anime since I first saw it countless years ago on Toonami, on Cartoon Network. Back then, still a kid, barely a teenager, I fell in love with the man known as Himura Kenshin. He was a man that would forever change my life and continue to influence the type of p...
