Kenshin Himura is a legendary swordsman in the wars accompanying the turbulent fall of Japan’s Shogunate in the 19th century. Once feared as ‘Battosai the Killer’, he has adopted a peaceful life since the arrival of the ‘new age’. But Makoto Shishio, the ‘Shadow Killer’ who succeeded to Kenshin’s position as the deadly assassin, has since then been scheming in the Kyoto underworld. As Shishio knew too much of the dark side of the new government then, he was stabbed and set on fire on the rise of the new age; However, he survived, and wrapped in bandages, has raised an army of disaffected former samurais with the aim of overthrowing the new regime. Agreeing to a request by the new government to defeat Shishio, Kenshin leaves his beloved ones in Tokyo and sets out for Kyoto. He and Shishio are a match in skill and in wits, but their aims are opposite. Can Kenshin preserve the nation without breaking his vow that he will kill no more…?
