"Meiji Kenkaku Romantan"

Rurouni Kenshin is the masterpiece of Nobuhiro Watsuki. The anime tells us the story of a wanderer in the Meiji Era who makes up for his past sins by helping people in need. He was an assassin back in the Tokugawa Era or Edo Period. He was known as the legendary "Hitokiri Battousai", a man that was known for his skill at the sword and how fast he slays his targets.

Himura Kenshin
This is our wanderer. He was a former "assassin". Let's have a better picture so you wil be convinced. ^_^x
Hitokiri Battousai
There's a more convincing pic. ^_^x

His name is Himura Kenshin. After the Tokugawa era, he swore not to kill again.

One night, Kenshin met a girl who was looking for a man named Battousai. He denied that he was that man and he even showed his Sakabattou or reversed-edged sword. This meeting proved to be the event that changed their lives forever. Kenshin faced many adversaries during the Meiji era.

Kamiya Kaoru
Kamiya Kaoru - Kenshin's love interest (while he doesn't show his feelings often, he truly loves this girl) ^_^x

I suggest you watch or read the manga story (which is a lot better) to know the whole story. You won't be disappointed.
