This is the third and final Rurouni Kenshin boxset, comprising volumes fifteen to twenty-two of this series. This collection to DVDs follows Kenshin and his companions as they return home to Tokyo after the gruelling events of the Kyoto arc, and try to go back to living together as peacefully as possible. Of course, with Japan constantly in danger from fanatical rebels, foreign secret societies and deranged mystics, Kenshin and the rest don’t seem to have a hope living in peace for long.
This is a pretty good collection of episodes when taken by themselves; they are full of action, the voice-acting and music is very good, and the animation is of good quality too. However, comparing it with the previous Kyoto arc makes these episodes look quite inferior, unfortunately. This is also the time when the anime series veers off in a direction quite different from the manga, and the comparatively superficial story-lines and characters show it. Still, this is solid entertainment compared to lots of other anime, and worth getting if you’re a fan of the series.
