About Rurouni Kenshin Manga Volume 1

Rurouni Kenshin volume 1 features story and art by Nobuhiro Watsuki.

It is the Meiji Restoration, and the feudal system separating the classes has ended. By law, the samurai must give up their swords - symbols of their traditional power - but a few still resist the changing times. Many of these that refuse have honed their power and skill in such a way that would make them a horrible threat in an otherwise peaceful society.Although... not all that carry a sword carry it with the intent to kill, as the wanderer, Himura Kenshin will show. Using an elite style of swordsmanship known as Hiten Mitsurugi, he wields a reverse-bladed sword and fights to repent for his past, defending the oppressed and aiding those in need - all without killing anyone.

A Very Fun First Volume

by -

My biggest issue with any series, be it manga, anime, live action, etc is that the beginning is always a dull introduction. Rurouni Kenshin does not have this problem. There is a quick page to bring you up to speed of the culture of the world, the do's and don'ts, and so forth, but that's about it. While this is an action series, the humor peppered throughout is light and fun. The action and the stories in this volume do a very good job of keeping your attention, and the characters are all a delight.
