“Himura Kenshin is a vagabond with a dark past and sunny disposition. Not a ronin but a rurouni, he was never a samurai, but an assassin of utmost skill in the Meiji restoration, who in the turning point of the war simply walked away. His travels lead him to Tokyo in the 11th year of the Meiji era, where he befriends a female Kendo master, a former thief, a brawler and a doctor all with their own secrets. Together they fight off the enemies surfacing from the dark past that Kenshin cannot escape.” – Anime News Network
A great series with an adventure you never wanted to end. The movie was the past, present and future/end of Kenshin’s life. Yes, his past is so full of blood, being married at such a young age.. We get to see the origins of the scar as well as its disappearance in his final attonement. Really sad how he left his family behind.. I feel so bad for their son…The Last Samurai… The ending made my stomach wrench for a good 2 days.
