Rurouni Kenshin: Tonkuhitsu-ban (or Restoration) is not just an update of the original series, it is a re-telling as a kind of parallel story. Restoration retells the very beginning of Rurouni Kenshin with a little bit faster pace, more villains that you'll remember from the series (if you read it) and it is a little bit more violent than before. Treat it as one short arc of "what could have been."

Story - 8
The premise of Kenshin remains the same from the original. It is about a Hitokiri with a cross-shaped scar on his cheek that killed to achieve a new era, but swore never to read more
