Synopsis:

In Japan, legends tell of a strong clan of warriors who fought unarmed and walked the path of the undefeated. Since the Heian period, this clan known as the Shura helped shape and form history as we know it with the help of their legendary Mutsu Enmei-Ryuu style. Watch history unfold in this epic tale as the Shura and their ancestors witness the days of the swordfighter Musashi, fight with the one-eyed Jubei Yagyu and help influence the fall of the Shogunate and Shinsengumi; and most importantly, touch the hearts and minds of everyone they meet…

Specifically, the last half of Shura will remind you of the Kenshin OVA. I liked the Kenshin OVA a little more, but both are compelling and interesting. If you have only watched a little SnT and are thinking "wtf, why did she recommend this?", keep in mind the last 11 episodes of SnT are quite different :). So, if you enjoyed the final half of SnT, you'd love the Kenshin OVA.

Kenshin – Tsuiokuhen is without doubt darker and more serious than Shura No Toki, but the pure enjoyment you experience when Kenshin cross swords with his enemies, are close to a mass release of endorphins. A combination of amassing swordfights and top of the art animation, makes this a show for the history books. Kenshin – Tsuiokuhen is highly recommended to everyone who enjoys good fighting animes where technique and skill are not influenced by magical and mythical factors.

Dragon Ball Z

Dragon Ball Z

Five years have passed since Goku and his friends defeated Piccolo Jr. and restored peace to the planet. Gohan - Goku's son - and a variety of good, bad, and morally ambiguous characters are back, and perpetually not ready for action! Aliens, androids, and magicians all hatch evil plots to destroy the world and it's up to Goku to save the Earth once more - that is, once he and his comrades train plentifully in preparation.  Enemies will become friends and power levels will rise to unimaginable levels, but even with the help of the legendary Dragon Balls and Shen Long will it be enough to save Earth from ultimate destruction?

The main characters have their calm, carefree, and sometimes clueless sides, but when they need to, they show that they are they strongest of their time.

Both anime focus on martial arts, though Shura no Toki focuses on real life and history, DBZ shows excellent martial arts of the fantasy variety.

Looking for some serious beat'em up anime where bare-handed martial arts are more important and thoroughly considered than your average lame 1000 episode long anime?

Try this one and you won't regret it!

Hijikata Toshizou Shiro no Kiseki

Hijikata Toshizou Shiro no Kiseki

Historical Japan, the Meiji Revolution: Hijikata Toshizou is a young swordsman fighting for the Shinsengumi and the Tokugawa shogunate. As a lieutenant of the Shinsengumi, Hijikata earns a reputation for his ruthlessness and harsh moral code. Hijikata Toshizou's tale is one of fierce determination, his samurai spirit unfaltering even as the war nears its inescapable conclusion and his comrades fall one by one.

Can an anime strongly focused on the last phase of the Bakumatsu be a great show, enjoyable by all the people out there quite far from being history geeks?

Well, these shows surely prove that...

Peace Maker Kurogane

Peace Maker Kurogane

Peace Maker Kurogane takes place in Kyoto in the late 19th century, during the height of the conflict between the Shinsengumi, a shogunal police force, and its enemy, an anti-government faction called the Choshu. This tale follows a young boy named Ichimura Tetsunosuke who is desperate to join the Shinsengumi and avenge his parents' deaths by the hands of the Choshu. But in the midst of the bloodshed, will he be strong enough to survive?

Both Shura No Toki and Peace Maker Kurogane are based on historical events and persons. So if you are interested in the old Japan with its bloody histories and the persons behind these myths (even though the animes do take some liberties...), these shows are what you are looking for.
