Rurouni Kenshin

Rurouni Kenshin

Rurouni Kenshin is the story of a revolutionary patriot fighting to conceal his bloody past in the new Meiji era of Japan. Battosai Himura's role in the revolution was so infamous that it earned him the title ‘Hitokiri' (Manslayer). To put that fearful name and his past behind him, Himura returned to his original name of Kenshin, reversing the blade on his sword to make it non-lethal, swearing to never take another life and beginning again as an ordinary rurouni (wandering samurai). He meets Kaoru Kamiya, a spirited girl who runs the local dojo and is the first of several friends to accept him for who he is, not who he was. But Kenshin's past will not leave him alone, and with old rivals remerging, groups attempting to shatter the hard earned peace, and those with desire to face the legendary Battousai, all chasing after Kenshin, can he protect those he cares about and still maintain his oath?

I was amazed at how no one wrote about the similarities between kyo and kenshin. They're both samurais and comedic characters, but when endangered, they become "demons". The only difference is that kyo has a split personality, whereas kenshin is always himself: he just acts differently. They're funny and action-packed adventures, so yeah, if you liked one, you should definetly check out the other.

Samurai Deeper and Rurouni Kenshin are both about a samurai who have a bloody past and would only use his sword to protect other people. The main characters (Kyoshiro and Kenshin) who is both known as the strongest samurai, find people he can trust and fight along side with and a girl he likes.

Yu Yu Hakusho

Yu Yu Hakusho

Yuusuke is a street-fighting, class-skipping juvenile delinquent. Killed in an unexpected act of kindness, he thwarts the spirit-world bureaucracy and ends up with a second chance at life... as infant prince of death Koenma's Spirit Detective! Simultaneously cheered on and kept in line by Keiko Yukimura, his childhood friend, he is joined by a spiritually aware human, two demons on parole, and guided by a much too lively ferry girl of the dead. Together they plow through demons, tournaments, hijinks, intense "martial arts" training, cross-dressers, dungeons, conspiracies and bad puns alike. At the end of the day, what's it all for? Kicking butt and saving the world, of course!

If you liked Samurai Deeper Kyo, you'll like Code Breaker. Both being from the same mangak, you won't be surprised by the similarity in the design and the story telling. Both are about a young man at first looking like a dangerous person bearing an incredible power, but the main girl will be able to gradually change him and reveal that the main male isn't as bad as he seems to be. A lot of actions, awesome fights and great story telling.
