Overview

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.

In the 11th year of Meiji, in the middle of Tokyo, the tale begins. 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...

    Kenshin, Sano, Saito, and Aoshi .vs. Shishio

    Kenshin is down, Sano can't do anything, and Saito comes bursting through the door! Shishio takes Saito and Sano down easy, but then there's still Aoshi to defeat.When even Aoshi hits the dust, Kenshin comes out of his death-like black-out and takes on Shishio. With Kenshin critically wounded and Shishio at his limit, who will prevail? Shishio bursts up in flame, while Kenshin is at death's door. Will he get back to Kauro and company in time for recovery?!

    The Shishio Finale

    The Battle really heats up (no pun intended) in the final volume of the battle with Shishio. Not to give too much away, but have you ever seen Kenshin bust out ALL of his moves in a ROW? Unfortunately, four heros walk in (including Aoshi), but only three will walk out. (sniff) The only reason I would almost give it four stars instead is...well, there is at least one part where I had to go 'Huh? But waitasec, he killed that door, why not Shishio's head??' but KENSHIN STILL ROCKS!
