Amazing Anime- Rurouni Kenshin

I love animes that are set in a different era.  This one happens to be based in the early Meiji era in Japan, and follows a young man named Himura Kenshin.  He was a great warrior in the Bakumatsu War and apparently killed one to many guys, because he commits himself to a life of peace after the war and vows not to return to his violent ways.  He runs into a girl named Kamiya Kaoru and ends up being the "Master" of the dojo that she teaches at. There's a lot more to the plot than that, but you can read more about it here.   

Besides being set in a real life historical era, this story also includes a bit of romance between Himura and Kamiya.  And what girl doesn't like a good love story?  Kenshin always ends up being the knight in shining armor and it's kind of swoon worthy.   

I totally recommend this anime.  It has almost a hundred episodes, so if you start it you're in for a commitment because I promise you won't want to stop watching it.  Just typing this review kind of makes me want to re-watch the series!  


  1. I'm going to start this one! I haven't watched anime in so long.
