Our Review : The way they combine fiction and real facts of Japanese history occurred during the Mei Ji era make it more interesting. Another point about it is the way they combine drama, action, romance and comedy. The backgrounds and the music are just brilliant and exquisite. But more then enjoying the anime and the manga, I think the OVAs are the best,not only Kenshin's story is much more interesting , but also we have more accurate facts.
