Historical Records

Rurouni Kenshin: A manga created by Nobuhiro Watsuki, Rurouni Kenshin spanned 28 volumes. When converted to an anime, 96 episodes were drawn (though some sources say 95, my tapes have 96 episodes). Soon to follow was a feature film, and a few years later the first OAV. In the past year, another new Kenshin animation was created, Seishou Hen, the newest OAV sequel. This OAV was almost exclusivly about Kenshin and Kaoru's relationship, but not the most upbeat of animations. (The webmaster would like to point out that Seishou Hen is both one of the best and one of the worst things she's every seen, and she'll stick with real Watsuki stories from now on).

Kenshin: Himura Kenshin is a wandering masterless samurai, who ten years before the series opening has vowed to never kill again. He is in fact, the Hitokiri Battosai, a legendary assassin who could kill in only one stroke. Kenshin has turned from that life, and finds a home again in Tokyo, where he encounters Kaoru.

Kaoru: Kamiya Kaoru is an assistant master of Kamiya Kaishin Ryu, a school of fighting focused on protection rather than violence. Having lost her father years ago, she is running her dojo by herself until she attacks Kenshin and through various circumstances, he becomes a permenant guest at the dojo. She's a brave fighter who Watsuki says was drawn to be his "ideal woman."

Kenshin and Kaoru: The two meet when Kaoru attacks Kenshin, accusing him of being the Hitokiri Battosai who has been terrorizing Tokyo. Though it turns out she was really after an imposter, she has attacked the right assassin but he has mended his ways and becomes her boarder. Slowly, she starts to fall in love with him because of his determination to protect those he loves. Kenshin struggles with his past, and the killing rage he still has inside of him, many times trying to leave Tokyo and Kaoru behind. But in the end, both discover that their path lies together, and they marry and have a child named Kenji. They're a lot more complex than that, but really, how do you explain 96 episodes in a blurb?

Who Are You Protecting?: This site is named after one of the most popular background songs of the Kenshin tv series. This song has many different remixes and versions, and some of the most touching and wonderful K/K scenes feature it. Our image is taken from a doujinshi (fan comic) artbook named Yamaguchi Graph drawn by a circle named Yamiguchiro.
