[Trying to prove to his assistant that hell exists]
Shishio : Himura has experienced fighting with Aoshi and it's hell for him. Okina's parents were killed in front of his eyes and it was hell. I was burned, every inch of my body in pain shouting for death, and it's hell. Now, do you think that hell is not here on earth? If hell is not here, then why the hell should I keep you alive?

Rurouni Kenshin, is one of the best animes I've ever seen. I first discovered RK when I downloaded the first chapter of the manga. Then I became addicted to it as the story of a wandering swordsman trying to atone for his sins really got me excited and started downloading more manga issues. The first time I saw the anime version was after I downloaded the first episode. Now Rurouni Kenshin comes on my satellite dish on LBC SAT from Lebenon. I give this anime 10/10 it is an anime masterpiece that shouldn't be missed. A must see not just for anime fans but for fans of the samurai or chambara genre(Akira Kurosawa's Seven Samurais and Zatoichi) as well.
