The Last arc of Rurouni Kenshin, it's all about the final days of a great man that is Kenshin.

Everything has been decipted well in this OVA, from the stunning sceneries and up to the stunning orchestral score that it has. The story is delivered very well.

I say you’re going to have to read the manga to fully understand his character and it also excludes Enishi’s comrades ...
