Rurouni Kenshin Summary:

Rurouni Kenshin is the story of a wanderer called Himura Kenshin (with Himura meaning, "of the village," and Kenshin meaning "Sword Heart"). During the Bakumatsu (end of Edo dynasty in Japan), he was known as the Hitokiri Battousai, which meant, "Assassin of Sword-Drawing." Kenshin killed with a single stroke, quick and painless.

He was a member of the Choshu Ishin group, and was a hitokiri for them. Later, he was transferred by Katsura Kogoro to the front to fight against the Shinsen Gumi. After a period, he left the Choshu, and began wandering throughout Japan. He took a vow never to kill again, and replaced his sword with a Sakabatou(reverse-bladed sword) so that he may still use his fighting skills but not to kill. Eventually he wanders into Tokyo where he is confronted by a Kenjutsu master by the name of Kamiya Kaoru, master of Kamiya Kasshin Ryu.

He later saves her, and she asks him to stay with her for a while. But, all of these "colorful characters" keep coming after him, wanting to bring in a bounty on his head. As he lives in a dojo with Kamiya Kaoru and her apprentice, who is a hot headed, fire tempered, juvenile delinquent. If you like action shows, this ones pretty good, but not that glamourous.

Rurouni Kenshin is the story of a wandering samurai who uses a sword technique called the Hiten Mitserugi style, one of the most powerful and complicated techniques in the show. His name is Kenshin Himura but referred to as Botosai the Man Slayer. As a kid his whole village is murdered, and thats when he meets his master. His master leaves him with a choice to join him, and his master leaves the village. He returns to find that Kenshin had buried everyone with nothing but his hands. Years later during the war kenshin decides to go and fight.

Ten years later Kenshin finds himself in Tokyo in the Kamiya Kashin Dojo where he meets Kaoru. Soon after that a man named Sanoske and Yahiko. Kenshin gets into a crap load of fights with old enemies and some new ones. I don't want to name them all but here is a few: The Oni Waban Group, Soujiro, Jineh, and Shishio.

The fight scenes in this anime are excellent, especially the one between Kenshin and Sito. The animation is some of the best i've seen. I would recommend this show to any anime fan who likes a good fight. The sucky thing is they only show it saturday nights on cartoon network.

Main Characters: TV Series

Himura Kenshin (Swordsman, Adventurer)
Kamiya Kaoru (Swordswoman, teacher of the Kamiya Kashin Dojo)
Myoujin Yahiko (Swordsman, student of the Kamiya Kashin Dojo)
Sagara Sanosuke (Fighter, Adventurer)
Takani Megumi (Doctor)


The Rurouni Kenshin series takes place 10 years into the Meiji Era, the peaceful time period after the Bakumatsu Era. An assassin from the Bakumatsu Era named Himura Kenshin, and nicknamed "Battousai" lives as a wanderer, using his sakaba (blunt sword) to keep the peace. The series is rather lengthy anime that contains three OVA's in addition to the anime series itself. The first two OVA's are done in the old style when the series was known as samurai X, quite different from the modern-style anime series most of you will be familiar with. These were titled 'Memory' or 'Trust and Betrayal' (which is my favorite and is depicted in the image to the left) and 'Seisou Hen'. The third OVA uses the anime series style and is entitled 'Meiji Kenkaku Romantan'.

Though vastly inferior to the manga on which it's based, this anime is definitely worth a look. The drawings are very nice and the first two seasons pretty much follow the manga, though there are plenty of fillers. The third arc, known as Jinchuu was never animated, thus the anime doesn't have a true ending.

This was one hell of a good anime! I LOVED the characters 'cause all of them had a comic releif in thier own way! The story was excellent and I miss it so much! Especially, Kenshin's swirlly eyes!!!(oro oro!) ahem.....anyway the bad guys were also perfect like that mummy guy even though I forgot his name. This anime kicks many other animes asses! Sayanara minasan! (Goodbye everyone)!

kenshin is a great anime, I have the whole series. I wish it had a better ending to the last volume. "End of Wandering". I was hoping Kenshin and Kaoru got marry like the episode in Samuri X, "Reflection". Too bad, they should remake the last volume 22 and give it an alternative ending. Just a suggestion to think about. Thanks.
