Actually I don't know if I liked it or not... Hope it gets better in 2nd ep

Actually, same here. I'm not really sure if I liked it or if I just think I liked it because, well, the rating would indicate that I should.

The animation is indeed really lovely, though.

Waay too talky. I'm hard-pressed to remember a single part of this episode where the visuals weren't undercut by someone explaining the significance of what was occurring. The second episode was a great improvement in this regard.

So, seeing as it is a very high rated anime, thought I'd watch it. Just saw ep 1, not very excited to behonest. Granted, never read mangas or seen TV series. But i am having trouble motivating myself to watch the rest. Way toomuch violence and didn't seem like much development - note I am not squeamish or anything, but at the same time, didn't feel anything for what was happening, just saw rain of blood.
Maybe I am being too harsh after 1 ep.

oh my god, that is the worst f*cking dub I've ever heard in my life and I'm usually used to listening to dubs
anyway really depressing and violent but the main character seems to lack personality

It was very good for first episode. Animation may be old but that didn't affect how awesome this is.

Such a beautiful ending theme that spells out a tragedy in the future.

As an avid fan of Himura, and Rurouni Kenshin as a whole for longer than I can remember, as a person who's favourite manga of all time is Rurouni Kenshin, as a fan of the "sword" and historical Japan, and as a human being... all I can say is...

Wow. This version's portrayal, especially the intro sequence was simply breathtaking.

I can't believe I put this off for so long.

Wow! Kenshin was brooding and monotone when he was young.

Grr I'm too used to English Dubs from the good ole days that it's hard for my ears to adjust to the Japanese version. Otherwise I loved this episode, a blast from the past and it's really clicking together many points made in the main series as well as Kenshin's growth between this time period and the time of the series.

Half the time I thought the story was following Kenshin's sister or something. I don't think he even has a sister, but it was due to the fact that the VA for him sounds way too much like a girl. It's obvious she didn't even try to sound like a little boy.

But other than that, it was excellent.

Really great episode. Much, much better than the anime.
Kenshin gives Kurapika vibes.

Oh my gosh. I expected to consider this good but be slightly underwhelmed and not understand why it's rated so highly. But no, I already want to give this series a 10 after one episode; if I do, it'll only be my second 10 thus far.

Just... just utterly amazing in every aspect. Please, please don't let it get worse.

Wow that was good.. I can't believe I'm watching this so long after watching the tv show, which is in my top ten anime of all time.

Kenshin's master's Hiko Seijuro is steals pretty much every scene he is in. That monologue he had at the beginning when saving Kenshin was epic as fuck.
