Overview

In the 11th year of Meiji, on the day marked in the Western calendar as May 14th, time once again begins to flow. The shocking midday murder of Department of Internal Affairs Chief Ôûkubo a fait accompli, Kenshin leaves for Kyoto, scene of chaos and bloodshed--against the wishes of nearly everyone who knows him as the gentle "rurouni." Awaiting him there is Shishio Makoto, the hitokiri who replaced the cold-eyed assassin Himura Battôsai who forswore further killing and took up the reversed-blade sakabatô. But does Kenshin go to Kyoto for a duel...or for a death-match?!

Rurouni Kenshin is one of the best Samurai Anime that I have ever both read and watched. Filled with adventures, and villans who threaten to destroy Japan that the top Samurai, Kenshin Himura (aka Himura Battousai), won't stand for it. I love the episodes, the OVA and the music! Go RK!

Probobly the worst one of the series; it is bad, but it shows kenshin going to kyoto, a very important part of the storyline. Mostly throughout the book kenshin is 'evil kenshin'. It's not the best of the series, but it's a must have if you are collecting.
