This story revolves around Kenshin Himura,or better known as Battousai.He is a wandering samurai,with an extremely dark past.The story focus on his life in Kaoru's dojo,and also the obstacles and battles he must face along the way.

Rurouni Kenshin is an action-packed anime.The action is very detailed,and with each character having their own sword style,it is highly enjoyable to see them fight.Of course,my favourite sword style is Kenshin's style.He learned some new tactics later in the series,and that make him even more awesome.I must praise the series for its detailed explanation and emphasis regarding the sword style and martial arts technique.

The background music that accompanies it is excellent.The theme songs are good too.I am still listening to Tactics.The animation is not bad for an anime of that year.

Moving on to the plot,my favourite by far is the Shishio arc.The awesomeness of the arc cannot be described with words.Kenshin fought a lot here,as do his other comrades.Shishio is indeed a worthy opponent and an excellent villain.He doesn't act like a retarded villain;he is a really cruel,psychotic,and an excellent swordsman.I think he is also a cannibal in a way;he actually bites off Kenshin's neck at one point during the battle.Really,he shouldn't fight with an empty stomach.

The story is good until the final two arcs.Both the arcs in my opinion,boring and dull.The actions are not that good,and story is meh.It's not a good way to end such an awesome series,but i guess even Rurouni Kenshin has its own flaws as well.

As for the characters,Kenshin is obviously my favourite character.He is funny when he is not fighting,and really scary when he is serious and in a "battle mode".His down-to-earth personality,dark past,and sometimes clueless character really won me over.There is this funny scene where Kenshin caught a fish and found a ring in it.He gave it to Kaoru who taught Kenshin wanted to propose to her.Kenshin is such a cutie.

Other characters are also enjoyable to watch.They play an important role in the series,helping it to develop.Character development is good,and i like all the background stories for the characters.By watching it,you know how they become like what they are today.The interaction between them is wonderful as well.

Overall,Rurouni Kenshin is a well-balanced anime with lots of action,humour and romance.It is a worthy anime to watch,despite the shortcomings.(But you may be disappointed with the last OVA)

It is a really good, series it has comedy but it is a really serious series, also i like the plot and the art work. Also the fights are always so cool and they leave you in suspense after each volume

I adore this anime. I was sad when I watched ova and I saw that he died. He died of some stupid illness and not in some great battle. I was happy to see how he loves Kaoru. I like this anime because in every episode Kenshin was fighting with someone. The episodes were not boring.
