"I grew up watching this. This series is the only reason I don't hate Sundays. Known as "Samurai X" in our country, this show doesn't need any introductions. "

Top Animes (143 tv items)

"There are legends throughout all all japan, and elsewhere, of Butosai the Manslayer, the warrior of the revolution that ended ten years ago. A cold, heartless killer. So when our main character, Kenshin, runs into someone claiming to be him and saves a young woman he was attacking, she has to wonder why. Why he uses a reverse blade sword that cannot kill, wonder at his pure skill and speed. And she was right - Kenshin is the true Butosai, trying to repent for all the life he took. Follow him as "

"Himura Kenshin "The scar of my past will determine my future!"-Himura Kenshin REASON Soft-spoken, serene and humble, Himura Kenshin's usual demeanor suits his effeminate appearance perfectly. Always willing to put others before himself, both in terms of well-being and social standing, Kenshin usually refers to others with the noble honorific of "-dono" while nearly always speaking of himself with the particularly humble pronoun "sessha" and ending his phrases with the formal verb "de gozaru""

"I finished watching this anime only a few days ago (written October 12th) and this is a great anime as expected. The protagonist Himura Kenshin is a legendary manslayer from a war in Kyoto that happened under the revolution ten years back. To repel for his sins he makes an oath never to kill again, but wanders around with a reversed blade sword (which he can't kill with) which he tries to save as many lives as he can with. The show itself is really good. There are great fighting scenes, humor i"

"This another series of my childhood. Its my favourite samurai themed anime. The show is good overall with some great arcs and some not that great by the end. If you like the series i highly recommend the OVAs with are masterpieces in my opinion."
