Description: 140 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, man slayer! His killer blade helped close the turbulent Bakumatsu era and slashed open the progressive age known as Meiji . Then he vanished, and with the flow of years, became legend.

Ten years later, a young woman's life is saved when she happens upon a strange wandering swordsman named Kenshin. The young woman accepts the wanderer into her dojo, despite his secretive past, and the two become fast friends. As their relationship grows, they meet and make more friends (as well as enemies), and they grow accustomed to their life together.

However, one man can only run from his past for so long, and it isn't long before Kenshin is forced to face the life he thought he'd left behind. Now, together with his friends, he must fight the ghosts of his past if he wants the people he loves to have any kind of future.

Contains a side story called Yahiko no Sakabato.

I can't believe how old this is.

this is truly: una verga de manga. it is a shame that the anime did not do it so well at the end.

Just finished reading this, very nice ending!

One of the best manga I have read so far. Not too short nor did it try to unnecessarily extend the story with fillers.

I want to learn the hiten mitsurugi ryu \(0.0)/

I absolutely love this series.
a classic masterpiece indeed. One of the best shounens I've ever read.
I miss Tsuiokuhen OVA about the tragic past of our Battousai. Now gotta redownload them back and buy a pack of tissue.
That OVA is sorta like what might happen like 10 years later or so after the final chapters of the series, and did that thing you spoiler-boxed. It's non-canon, but it's not like those things COULDN'T happen – I don't think it interrupts the canon flow of the story, unlike the third season of the anime. The only way Jinchuu could be fit into the anime is if some explanation was given for Sano having a broken hand (such as some filler fight at the start of a fourth season), and then ignoring the otherwise inconsequential time lapse details.
Didn't Kenshin
in one of the OVA's is that not cannon?
Thanks for chapters
Oh man, this manga is so awesome
I'm gonna read again.
There should be all the chapters now.
Live action being released in August, I can't wait.
Some chapters are woefully incomplete. I've come as far as the shishio-arc and there - just before the interesting battles start the gaps begin too. T_T
volume 16 is incomplete.
A classic.
