Read Rurouni Kenshin, Vol. 1 (Rurouni Kenshin, #1) Online Free - Packed with action, romance and historical intrigue, Rurouni Kenshin is one of the most beloved and popular manga series worldwide. Set against the backdrop of the Meiji Restoration, it tells the saga of Himura Kenshin, once an assassin of ferocious power, now a humble rurouni, a wandering swordsman fighting to protect the honor of those in need.
A hundred and fifty years ago in Kyoto, amid the flames of revolution, there arose a warrior, an assassin of such ferocious power he was given the title Hitokiri: Manslayer. With his bloodstained blade, Hitokiri Battosai helped close the turbulent Bakumatsu period and end the reign of the shoguns, slashing open the way toward the progressive Meiji Era. Then he vanished, and with the flow of years became legend.
In the 11th year of Meiji, in the middle of Tokyo, the tale begins. Himura Kenshin, a humble rurouni, or wandering swordsman, comes to the aid of Kamiya Kaoru, a young woman struggling to defend her father's school of swordsmanship against attacks by the infamous Hitokiri Battosai. But neither Kenshin nor Battosai are quite what they seem...

Kenhin Himura is not your typical Shonen (boy's) manga hero. He's not a spunky teenager (he's actually pushing 30) he's not on a quest to be greatest ninja/pirate/karate champ of them all, and he doesn't get pumped up and excited for a fight. In fact, Kenshin seems to be what your traditional roc...

Qué lindo fue volver a disfrutar esta historia <3
Rurouni Kenshin (o Samurai X, como lo tradujeron en América Latina) es uno de mis anime favoritos y desde hace tiempo tenía pendiente leer el manga.
Me encanta el sentido del humor de los personajes y también la cantidad de datos interesantes res...

I can see this is a series that a lot of people will really, really like. I am not one of those people. Too much action, too little plot, maybe? It sort of reminds me of Ranma with a lot less slapstick. The art style is similar, which is probably why I'm comparing the two in the first place. The...

My dad and I used to watch this together when I was six. I still didn't watch the whole anime and read the manga but I love it so, five well deserved stars.

Kenshin siempre ha formado parte de una etapa diría que importante de mi vida. Amaba ver el anime pero nunca se me había ocurrido leer el manga…y ahora que lo he leído ha sido lo mejor del mundo, he recordado muy buenos tiempos y he disfrutado enormemente de esta lectura.
Este primer tomo es basta...

Wow! I really liked this book! It's way better than the anime, it let me get a deeper look into just how sweet of a person Kenshin is! I would definitely reccommend this series to any anime/manga lover.

I didn't always understand the battles but I didn't mind the frames with people. The start was good but it gets a little boring. A cute story overall but needs to get more interesting fast.
BOTTOM LINE: An older manga I could actually understand.

Samurai X is one of my favorite animes ever. It tells the story of a former assassin seeking atonement for his role in the end of the Shogunate and the restoration of Imperial power in Japan during the the 19th Century. Although his kills were all done in the context of revolution and survival, a...
