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'.

I would have to say to those of you who are relying on toonami to bring you this wonderful anime, i wouldnt rely on them so much. Toonami had a field day editing this series (along with most other great series), i recommend to those interested to actually buy the series. Ive watched every episode, and i think that after the shishio saga, everything just went down hill. (i personally would like to see the last 30 or so episodes just burned, scrapped and never mentioned again). however, those first 60 or so are worth dying for, highly recommended to all samurai/ninja anime fans looking for some cool action.

Ok kenshin is way off the limits between 10/10 its more like 99/10 but u no u can only go to ten so 10/10. Now wats that sumo guys name and is it shishiyo the one that taught sogiro the shukuchi or was it someone else, and wats kenshins real name besides matosi the manslayer. ok i dont watch it often enough to get the names but i no most of em. oh and wats the dude with the huge sword.
