All-time favorite manga

This series is probably my all-time favorite manga of them all. All the panels have been drawn nicely and well-done. The story is also very good. I really do enjoy Watsuki Nobuhiro work.

Rurouni Kenshin is the best manga out there. It's just awsome. The characters are all awsome, and the plot never gets boring. It's a page turner. The ending wasn't what I think it should have been but it was still good. A warning though, don't watch the Rurouni Kenshin movie Reflections

this is indeed a legend among the mangas..the character development wa sgreat and the plot was awesome too.. the artwork was not revolutionary but still, it was commendable. yeah it is a bit cheesy sometimes, typical of a shounen, but the overall combination of humor, action, romance and moral lessons were awesome..

I was saddened at the ending, as they parted ways and as i parted with them..i really did not want it to end yet.. i was actually surprised that the anime has the greater number of arcs than the manga..this one got only two arcs and the arcs about the underground christians and the one where they fought the knights and the other ninjas were not here..

This is one of the best mangas I've read so far. The art, especially the scenery is spectacular. The characters have interesting pasts and they develope so much throughout the series. (The bad guys too!)

The action scenes can become a bit too long and drawn out, but the they are drawn and depicted wonderfully.

The plot is wonderful and the mangaka really captures the esence or the Meiji Era.

In my opinion, this is one of the greatest manga series of all time. The plot is original and there's a nice balance between the fighting and the character interaction. I love all of the characters, and the best thing about this series is the development. I don't think there was a single character that hadn't changed by the the end of the manga (except maybe Tae-san ^_~). I loved the development of Yahiko the most. He improved in every fight and was very mature by the end of the manga. My only regret was that the two extra stories at the end weren't included in the VIZ manga books... ><

a good manga but childish

Well, it is a good manga. But in my opinion the good characters are boring, the plot is repetitive and I consider this a manga for teens. Anyway art is very good and Saitou the Wolf is one of the best characters in all mangas i read. It gets a 7.
Anyway, try to read Blade of The immortal, and this one will look like kids stuff - kidding, it's a matter of tastes wink

This is one of my favorite mangas of all time. The story is powerful, comic, and entertaining. It is also meaningful at the same time. The greatest thing about this is the character development, and how they all grow to what they were meant to be.

one of my all time favorites. the art during the kyoto arc was superb and i just fell in love with (most) of the characters (both protagonists and antagonists). a complaint? the change in style during the jinchuu (revenge) arc. but other than that, love it!
