Este tomo es pelea tras pelea tras pelea... Prácticamente, sólo peleas. ¡Pero qué peleas! Al factor ingenio hay que sumarle un dibujo superdinámico que no hizo más que mejorar durante la serie y así llegamos al principio del fin, tomo cargadito cargadito.
Almost finished with the series.

Here we have the battle between Kenshin and Enishi. It will be completed in the final volume.
Today's post is on Rurouni Kenshin volume 27 by Nobuhiro Watsuki. It is 192 pages long and is published by Shonen Jump. The cover has Kenshin in the foreground and Enishi behind him. It is the twenty-seventh volume in the long running series. You have to have read the first twenty-six in the series to understand the story. The intended reader is someone who likes historical stories, manga, and interesting characters. There is no foul language, no sex, but some violence in this series. The story ...more

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 volume is a good one. Aoshi is really awesome in it, and everybody gets their fight. I'm somewhat pissed at how little fighting Misao and Kaoru seem to get to do -- they're set up as strong women, and yet never get to fight! Still, I suppose that's more historically correct.

In terms of the science/medicine behind this, as far as I'm concerned it left the bounds of logic ages ago, so I'm not much concerned with the unreality of it.

Cruel place to end the volume, though, in the middle of a fig
Avec le recul, je me dis que ce manga Shonen n'était pas si bon que ça, mais j'ai longtemps conservé en mémoire l'effet produit par les extraordinaires OAV consacrées au chapitre du souvenir.
Kenshin reste un divertissement très honorables, mais je ne pourrais sans doute pas le relire aujourd'hui, too much.
Another really good volume in this series, featuring the (likely) final major battles for the supporting characters against Enishi's goons and the beginning of Enishi & Kenshin's final confrontation.

Compared to some other battle sequences in earlier volumes, this was of significantly better than average quality.

Mostly fighting, but what do you expect from Shounen?
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.

Got my hands on this volume thanks to a classmate in college. The spanish edition was delayed for so long that it was the fastest reading I ever made when I finally got it!
