Ten years have passed since the end of Bakumatsu, an era of war that saw the uprising of citizens against the Tokugawa shogunate. The revolutionaries wanted to create a time of peace, and a thriving country free from oppression. The new age of Meiji has come, but peace has not yet been achieved. Swords are banned but people are still murdered in the streets. Orphans of war veterans are left with nowhere to go, while the government seems content to just line their pockets with money.

One wandering samurai, Kenshin Himura, still works to make sure the values he fought for are worth the lives spent to bring about the new era. Once known as Hitokiri Battousai, he was feared as the most ruthless killer of all the revolutionaries. Now haunted by guilt, Kenshin has sworn never to kill again in atonement for the lives he took, and he may never know peace until killing is a thing of the past.

Now in the 11th year of Meiji, Kenshin stumbles upon Kaoru Kamiya, owner and head instructor of a small dojo being threatened to close its doors. The police force is powerless to stop the string of murders done in the name of her dojo by a man claiming to be the famous Battousai. Kenshin's wanderings pause for now as he joins Kaoru to clear both their names. But how long can he stay before his past catches up to him?

I probably won’t update this as often as I usually do because I’ve been busier and have more people helping me with the other manga I’m working on.
Neat, my favorite villain from the anime is coming up. I wonder if my opinion will change since it's been so many years.
@Axel thank you for clarifying.

I’ve always wanted to rewatch the anime but I think reading the colored version might be more fun.
@calmbreez they aren't coloring it, they are translating the official colored version by shueisha.
Ooooouuuuuuu I’ll wait for the amazing people coloring it to finish. Can’t wait !
Ah, yes, the "golden standart" of shonen series for me, best of the best.
Wow that's really fast! I guess I'll wait and read this once it is fully completed then. Thanks again for replying and answering!
@Siddj It’ll take 6-7 months at the most to complete the manga though it could finish earlier depending on how much help I can get.
@KojoZero. Thank you for your reply. I actually was planning to read this entire manga this week but then I happened to see your colored edition and I thought I might get official version directly but, it seems they have not translated the colored version. Do you guys have any idea how long will it take for you to complete this series? I'm just curious and wondering if I should patiently wait for your translation or just get official version.
@Siddj There's only japanese colored editions that you can buy on japanese bookstores (like booklive). I don't translate but I put the fan translations of the original manga on the colored editions with a lot of help from kenshinsgirl.
@KojoZero. Where can I find this? Are you guys translating this or there's already an official English version of this colored edition?
I remember watching the anime years ago at a friend's place. Good times.
Yessssss. The blessing we do not deserve.
