The violence of the Bakumatsu produced a legend so endearing that his name strikes fear in the hearts of men even years into the Meiji emperor’s rule. The infamous Hitokiri Battousai was a swordsman of amazing caliber whom single-handedly cut open the path to victory for the revolutionary Ishin Shishi movement. However after final victory over the Tokugawa Shogunate was attained, the legendary assassin disappeared into the shadows of time. In order to atone for the unspeakable crimes that he committed under the name of Battousai, Himura Kenshin, now a wandering rurouni, takes up a new crusade: to save as many innocent individuals as he can without ever taking another life.
