About Rurouni Kenshin 3 in 1 Edition Manga Volume 1
Rurouni Kenshin 3-in-1 Edition Manga Volume 1 contains volumes 1-3 in an omnibus format and features story and art by Nobuhiro Watsuki.
The beloved landmark tale of a Meiji-era swordsman’s quest for redemption.
Action, romance, and historical intrigue help make Nobuhiro Watsuki's Rurouni Kenshin, the tale of a wandering swordsman set against the backdrop of the Meiji Restoration, one of the most popular manga titles of all time. Himura Kenshin, once an assassin of ferocious power, now fights to protect the honor of those in need.
One hundred and forty years ago in Kyoto, with the coming of the American “Black Ships,” there arose a warrior who, felling men with his bloodstained blade, gained the name Hitokiri, or Manslayer! His killer blade helped close the turbulent Bakumatsu era and slashed open the progressive Meiji period. Then he vanished and, with the flow of years, became legend. This is his tale of redemption.
Rurouni Kenshin 3-in-1 Edition volume 1 collects volumes 1-3 in omnibus format.

Fans of the anime will love this!

I am so excited to finally read the manga, having previously watched the anime!
I have just started reading this volume: the art, characters, and storylines are enjoyable, and the frames and layout are mostly easy to follow. The pages (black & white) feel slightly thinner & delicate than my Ranma 1/2 volumes also from Viz Media. Unlike the previous VizBig editions I've seen, only the outer cover of this edition shows images in color. This volume has a nice glossary of the restoration, along with character information & notes by the creator.
All in all, a nice volume to start a Rurouni Kenshin collection. Recommend!
