Trivia

The flashback to Enishi's revenge scheme in episode two was a major part of the final story arc of the Rurouni Kenshin manga. However, the television series ignored it completely. Thus, this is the only Kenshin anime production in which any scenes from the manga's revenge arc were animated. See more »

The OVA that ends it all...
28 April 2002 | by (Hengelo, The Netherlands) – See all my reviews

Kenshin lasted a long time: OVAs, Movies and more then three years of television - but all good things must come to an end.

Will Kaoru get Kenshin? What will happen to Yahiko and Sanouske?

This 2-part Kenshin OVA answers those questions and ends the series in a worthy way. It is not as good as some of the other OVA's and TV episodes, but not bad at all.

You could see it as a summary of the TV series plus a final episode.

Fans will definitely not want to miss this, if only to close the magnificent book of Kenshin.
