Rurouni Kenshin, Vol. 1 #1-3 by Nobuhiro WatsukiI was a college sophomore when the TV series Samurai X first aired here, and its blend of history, violence, romance and comedy worked so well that the anime became an instant hit. Its origin is from the manga series Rurouni Kenshin, which tells the story of Himura Kenshin, a former “Hitokiri Battosai” (assassin) during the Bakumatsu or the final days of the Tokugawa period, and is now living a new life as a rurouni (a wandering swordsman). On the 11th year of the Meiji era he is a vagabond in Tokyo, and there he meets several people who will have big roles to fill in his life: Kamiya Kaoru, a female kendo instructor; Sagara Sanosuke, a former member of the Sekiho Army who now lives a carefree life and picks fights for a living; Takani Megumi, a female doctor trapped in the opium trade; and Myojin Yahiko, a boy whom Kenshin has rescued from the yakuza. His life and adventures will revolve around these people and the need to make them safe from his enemies, all while hes trying to reconcile with his shady past at the same time.
I enjoyed this book so much. The illustration is masterful; the fight scenes are very creatively done it seems like they were moving right before my eyes and I was watching the TV series once again. The historical aspect of it is interesting that I had to dive a bit into the history of Tokugawa and Meiji in between reads. Theres a side note that the author calls The Secret Life of Characters after every act or chapter, which shows interesting trivia about the characters and the inspiration behind their conceptualization. The book is never short of funny moments, too, and its always cute to read the banter between Kenshin and Kaoru (and even the funny drawings whenever Kaoru flies into a rage!) I just didn’t realize Kaoru could be a bit clingy and territorial in the manga version, because I’ve known anime Kaoru as a persistent and independent young woman, as someone who won’t take sh*t from anyone.
Meanwhile, this is my favorite scene from the TV series, https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=I6yUR... (though this would probably be in the latter part of the manga series). I do remember this scene very well, and our version did include Kenshin telling Kaoru that he loves her (I actually still remember his exact words!) Maybe the original Japanese version wasn’t all too crazed about expressive love, but here in my country, love and sad farewells always work magic. I remember feeling lonely watching it that I had to draw this scene on my notebook and write a sad poem about it afterwards.
