Watsuki-sensei's masterpiece , Rurouni Kenshin was the first manga I' ve read. It's about a wandering samurai who's trying to atone for his sins. I found the story of Kenshin's past both breathtaking and dramatic. The art of the manga improves itself as the story continues. Rurouni Kenshin is about love and strength and finding of one's true self.It's the example that one does not have to give up on life to atone one's sins.Instead you just have to hold on to life and try to make the best of it.
