The most succinct way to describe Shin Kyoto Hen would be: "glossed over." What else would you expect from a two hour retelling that attempted to cover 27 episodes of the original series? That's not to say, however, that the OVAs are entirely without merit.

ART
The environments are strikingly beautiful. The characters are modernized: cleaner and redesigned to better suit the current aesthetic, but unfortunately look washed out and unfinished when set against the detail of the backgrounds. Cinematography is done very well; the usage of color and light, particularly contrasting Kenshin's meetings with Misao and Shishio, is a nice touch.

The worst thing that happened to Rurouni Kenshin series so far!! A complete cash in, even worst than the filler episodes of the lastest arc of the original anime!!
Storywise they pick when Kenshi is going to Kyoto to stop Makoto Shishio and ends on the purgatory boat scene! Yes Makoto is defeated there! Sorry for the spoilers, but it had to be said, also lots of important events of Kyoto's arc (Kenshin reunion with his master learning the ultimate techinque in the process, Sanosuke trainning with the fallen monk) DONT APPEAR!! They are skiped and what is left is a rough early draw of the read more

Recommendations

Though Rurouni is more revolved around Samurais and Brave 10 is revolved around ninjas, both have many unique things in common. First off there is a girl that falls in love with the man character, and both main characters have an evil pass where darkness comsumes them. Another pointer why i think these animes are similar is because they both use a secret art of fighter. Last is... they have happy endings :D
