This story literally has everything I love in a manga. A fantastic main character with a wonderful backstory, an awesome leading lady who isn't just there for boob-service and actually has a great, well-rounded character, wonderful and memorable supporting characters whether they be friends or foes, stories that get rounded-out and resolved and don't just focus on getting the BRAND NEW FIGHTING TECHNIQUE!!1, a storyline that doesn't stray into sentimental or cliche and yet still tugs at your hea ...more
Dari jilid 5 langsung loncat ke jilid 8. Di bagian ini, Kenshin melakukan perjalanan ke Kyoto, dan bertemu dengan Misao, mantan pengikutnya Aoshi. Jadi, Shishio udah nongol di sini.

Oke, setelah ini mari loncat lagi ke jilid 11 -__-
The start of the Shishio Arc is a good return to form after a few less-than stellar volumes.

Sanosuke, Kaoru, Yahiko, Hajime Saitou, even Aoshi Shinomori goes to Kyoto, and Kenshin meet Misao Makimachi in the way to Kyoto. She looks for Aoshi and other Oniwabanshu's members, they are like brothers for her. Kenshin tries so hard to not telling her the sad story.....
The first volume of the Kyoto arc depicts the start of Kenshin's journey across the country to face down Shishio. Finally bringing in characters that evoke the pain and struggle of revolution in a way Kenshin's escapism seldom does, Nobuhiro Watsuki puts together a strong volume and a worthy volume in this series.
As I said for volume seven, I like this arc. I like the bits about Sanosuke trying to get stronger, and all the different reactions to Kenshin's departure. Misao is a little bit annoying, being the stereotypical perky ninja girl -- she reminds me of Yuffie from Final Fantasy VII in that, and a bit of Rikku from FFX/X-2... not the most original character template. Still, her character design's interesting.
Not only was this an action packed series, but it was also full of great historical information. I learned so much about Japan's history by reading this series. Watsuki managed to throw in a nice amount of romance as well. All in all, it was a great fun read that kept me wanting more.

I love this volume since there is Misao!
She is my favorite heroine in this series.
I love her, she's really funny.

"Makimachi Misao never reveald her name to the strangers!

Yup, still hatin' this part - although I love Misao and adore Megumi! Megumi especially. Someone needed to talk some sense into Kaoru!
MISAO MISAO MISAO. She's my sweet princess and that's all I have to say.
They keep bringing in cool new characters.
