The Shinsengumi—fearsome and formidable protectors of the Shôgunate. Kenshin knows them well, having done battle with them during the final days of the Meiji Restoration.

Watsuki's latest series, Buso Renkin, also available in English from VIZ Media, began publication in Weekly Shonen Jump in June 2003.

    One of the greatest manga series out there.

    The entire manga of Rurouni Kenshin is possibly one of the best manga's made that has come over to the U.S. It has romance, comedy, action, and drama. It focuses on Kenshin, the greatest swordsman in all of Japan known as the battousai, who has given up his title and is just a traveling swordsman now, a rurouni, taking a vow to never kill again.

    This is mainly for those who like action though, as it is a pretty serious manga, but of course some comedy bits are factored in as well. A great manga to start out with.
