It's by far one of the best manga I have ever read! Kenshin's personality is just awesome and the story is incredible. The sword fighting scene is without a doubt the best sword battle scenes i've ever read/seen. It has some romance into it and some history of Japan. I count Rurouni Kenshin has one of the top 5 manga i have read so far. You will never have a part where you are bored from reading. Each chapter is very interesting which some of the bad ass characters like Kenshin, Aoi, and many more. If you love reading mangas that involves swords you HAVE to read this.
