A este tomo ya ni le debe quedar lomo de la cantidad de veces que lo leí. Se justifica teniendo en cuenta que quizás sea mi tomo preferido de una de mis series de manga preferidas de todos los tiempos. No es moco 'e pavo.
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
We are finally finished with this arc. Shishio and Kenshin battle it out and it is a very long battle. I love that we got to see what happened to everyone and even got to see Shishio walk into the sunset (granted, it was hell, but who cares?).

I can't wait to see what happens next.

The the major conclusion of the Kyoto arc is good, even if we come upon someone superior to Kenshin who is only defeated by is own actions, and not by Kenshin himself. Still, the strength of the story lies in the aftermath sections.
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.
it was an interesting end to the kyoto arc, most certainly unexpected. for once i would like to see a big fight with kenshin with the clear advantage. but hey, whatever. i still really enjoyed this volume.

Loved the ending to their battle and the aftermath! Hmmm lost to Kenshin? Clearly the next step is to take over hell! Whoooo shishio-sama you go kick the king of hells butt!!!
In some ways I thought this was an awesome way to end this arc. On the other hand, I'm not that good at suspending my disbelief, so parts of it made me wince a bit.
this is the final showdown between Kenshin and Shishio, and the epilogue after. A very satisfying end to the story arc.
The Kyoto Arc comes to a great end with everybody getting they're chance to shine.
