Rurouni Kenshin, the brain child of Nobuhiro Watsuki is one of the best Samurai manga/animes out there! With the combination of action, comedy, and romance, who couldn't love it? Short Summery:
During 1867 in Japan a man name Kenshin Himura an ex-samurai wanders Japan when he runs into a girl named Kaoru Kamiya, who eventually lets him stay at her dojo. More characters come along becoming either friends or enemies. Awesome battle scenes and great story lines for each character it's hard not to like Rurouni Kenshin
Pros of the show:
~Awesome story line ~a balance between comedy, action, drama, etc...
~pretty good animation ~great voice actors
Cons of the show:
~whole 3rd season is filler
~the ending is kinda disappointing.(if you read the manga)
