Japan 1867… the Tokugawa Dynasty stands upon failing lengths. An invincible samurai, Kenshin Himura, walks upon a path of death and destruction ushering in a new regime. Hated and feared by many, he is known as “Hitokiri BattÅsai”, the man-slayer (hitokiri = man-slayer). Repenting for his deeds in the revolution, he has taken an oath: to protect the innocent and to never kill again. Although he now lives a life of a rÅnin, old memories seldom fade and return to haunt him but… bad habits die hard.
