During the violent upheaval of the Bakumatsu era (1853-1868), Hitokira Battosai was a feared and ruthless assassin. But a new era has dawned and as the Meiji Restoration begins to heal the woulds of civil war, Battosai has taken up a new calling and a new name! He wanders the countryside as Rurouni Kenshin, vowing to draw his reverse-bladed katana only to protect those in need. But not everyone is pleased with his new direction, and enemies from Kenshin’s dark past have vowed to bring him down.
