Rurouni Kenshin is the stroy of Kenshin Himura, the Batousai. A wandering swordsman who has made a vow to never kill again. He does this to attempt to repent for all the lives he took as the legendary manslayer known as Batousai. Kenshin helps out a female dojo master by the name of Kaoru and ends up staying there. He meets a young boy with aspirations of being a samurai named Yahiko, and a thug muscle for hire named Sanosuke. Together they fight to protect each other and their ideals. Along the way Kenshin has to deal with his past as a manslayer and attempt to surpass his past self without killing. This is one of my all time favorite anime. I would recommend this to anyone, it has elements of many genres from action, adventure, love, history, comedy, etc. It also has many OVA's which are both prequels and sequels to the anime series. Enjoy!
