Summary:
From Viz:

140 years ago in Kyoto, with the coming of the American "Black Ships," there arose a warrior who, felling men with his bloodstained blade, gained the name Hitokiri, man slayer! His killer blade helped close the turbulent Bakumatsu era and slashed open the progressive age known as Meiji . Then he vanished, and with the flow of years, became legend.

Ten years later, a young woman's life is saved when she happens upon a strange wandering swordsman named Kenshin. The young woman accepts the wanderer into her dojo, despite his secretive past, and the two become fast friends. As their relationship grows, they meet and make more friends (as well as enemies), and they grow accustomed to their life together.

However, one man can only run from his past for so long, and it isn't long before Kenshin is forced to face the life he thought he'd left behind. Now, together with his friends, he must fight the ghosts of his past if he wants the people he loves to have any kind of future.

Contains a side story called Yahiko no Sakabato.

This series is a master piece. It has everything a story could need; drama, action and comedy just to name a few. I lack the words to fully describe it. If anyone reads this review, please read the first few chapters of this manga. You will not regret it.

I recently started reading this manga from my local library, and I love it, especially the lead character's ideals! Let me also point out his methods to make sure his doesn't go back to the way he was. This is definitely a manga worth reading.



P.S. As for what I said regarding "the way he was", you'll have to read to find out. He he he!

I recently picked up this manga online, and I must say it is one of the best manga I have ever read. From the main character to his allies and opposers, The manga never looses it's flair. It is a manga that dives into the soul of the samurai, but is very quirky at times. And with over 200 chapters, it'll keep you busy for a while!

Bottom Line: 9.7/10

For those of you who've seen the anime, the manga is 10x better. The story of Rurouni Kenshin is an incredible tale of an ex government assassin trying to escape from his past. With the setting of the story taking place in the transition between the tokugawa regiem and the meiji era where the once proud samurai are forced to lay down their swords and honor to try and live a more peaceful and "equal" life. Unfortunately not everyone can adapt to the new social system so well and some don't even want to try. Chased by the enemies of his past and (read more)

my favorite manga of all time. The action/ sword play is amazing the characters are great and the story is perfect. As assassin out to redeem himself.
I aslo suggest the OVA trust and betrayal which shows an early kenshin when he was a cold blooded killing machine and how he got the scar

Like DBZ i didn't get the chance to read the manga till after i watched the anime. Still one of my favorite manga's of all time. Historical portrayal of known japanese eras and persons, exciting almost realistic fights, old love stories, betrayal, loyalty, kindness, dignity, honor and many more....
