Manga Monday- Rurouni Kenshin volume 1

Manga Monday- Rurouni Kenshin volume 1

rurouni-kenshin-vol1

Today’s review is on Rurouni Kenshin volume 1 by Nobuhiro Watsuki. It is 208 pages long and is published by Shonen Jump. It is the first volume in the long running series. The cover has Kenshin and Kaoru on it. The intended reader is someone who likes historical stories, manga, and interesting characters. There is no foul language, no sex, but some voilence in this series. The story is told from third person close following different characters. There Be Spoilers Ahead.

From the back of the book- 140 years ago in Kyoto, with the coming of the American ‘Black Ships’, there arose a warrior who, felling men with his bloodstained blade, gained the name Hitokiri, man slayer! His killer blade helped close the turbulant Bakumatsu era and slashed open the progessive age known as Meiji. Then he vanished, and with the flow of years, became legend.
In the 11th year of the Meiji, in the middle of Tokyo, this tale begins…

Review- This is an excellent start to a series. It introduces the reader to a world that is very different from our own. Kaoru is a young woman living alone, just trying to make ends meet when her father’s name starts to be slandered. She goes to hunt down the murderer killing in his name when she meets Kenshin who is hunting for him too. The story goes from there with more characters being introduced, the world being explained, and the plot expanding. The fight scenes are over the top but the characters are why you read this manga. They are all wonderful, you really care about Kaoru’s pain over the loss of her father and Kenshin’s shame of killing so many. I look forward to seeing where this story is going to go.

I give this volume a Five out of Five stars. I get nothing for my review and I bought this manga with my own money.
