At the beginning of this volume, we see each of our residents at the dojo dealing with Kenshin's departure. Kaoru takes it the hardest, but with Megumi's brutal encouragement, she follows Kenshin with Yahiko. Sanosuke battles with Hajime and also decides to follow Kenshin. The last images we see if the dojo are of Aoshi and Megumi discussing when Kenshin will be back...Hajime convinces him to wait for Kenshin and battle with him then.

Kenshin is on his way to Kyoto, by way of the East End Road. W

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

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.....
Jeffrey
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.
Michelle
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!

See?
Toni
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.
