Background Information

Rurouni Kenshin: Meiji Swordsman Romantic Story is a completed shonen manga series with 28 volumes created by Nobuhiro Watsuki and has also an anime adaptation.

The story of Rurouni Kenshin takes place during the early Meiji period in Japan. It tells the story of a peaceful wanderer named Himura Kenshin, formerly known as the assassin Hitokiri Battōsai. After participating during the Bakumatsu war, Kenshin wanders the countryside of Japan offering protection and aid to those in need as atonement for the murders he once committed as an assassin.

When arriving in Tokyo, he meets a young woman named Kamiya Kaoru, who was in the middle of a fight with a murderer who claims to be the Hitokiri Battōsai from her swordsmanship school. Kenshin decides to help her and defeats the fake Battōsai.

After discovering that Kenshin is the real Battōsai, she offers him a place stay at her dojo as she notes Kenshin is a gentle person instead. Kenshin accepts and begins to establish lifelong relationships with many people, including ex-enemies while dealing with his fair share of enemies, new and old. 


Standing in the Battledome

Most of the strong characters have at least supersonic+ reactions/attack speed and their stats range from wall level+ up to at least building level+, depending on the character.

Rurouni Kenshin is considered to be a weak verse but an underestimated one, at times.
