We finally meet Shishio Makoto in this volume, but a battle with Kenshin will happen at a later date. However, there was a brief fight with Seta Sōjiro that left Kenshin's sword broken (Sōjiro's too). We also had a battle with Senkaku (and his disturbing manhood) but that wasn't too much of a focal point. The end of the volume has Kenshin in Kyoto, searching for someone to fix his sword. Unknown to him, Kaoru and Yahiko have also arrived in Kyoto and are looking for him.

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

This story arc is more intricate than the others so far
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.
This arc is still awesome. The fight where the sakabato breaks is interesting, and Sano's development is still interesting. I don't even have my usual "needs moar Sano" complaint -- although I would like more of the Kenshin-Sanosuke duo.
Book 9 is the, somewhat stereotypical, episode where Kenshin is forced to admit he is not strong enough to face his current villain. Still fun to read and well done.

I thought that this Rurouni Kenshin was as good as the others. Well thought out, entertaining, suspenceful and leaving the readers wanting more. This was a good read.
Last of the current batch I've been given, and a good place to stop as all hell is about to break lose I believe. Can't wait till I get some more.

Switcheo a la reedición argentina (impresa en España) hasta tener a mano la vieja y poder subir la data correspondiente.
For some reason the mention of Hiko made me happy. I didn't think I liked him that much. Heh.
