Description

With his killer blade, legend-warrior Hitokiri Battosai once helped close the turbulent Bakumatsu era, and slashed open the progressive age known as Meiji. It's now 1878, ten years after the bloody Meiji Revolution that marked the end of the rule of the Shogun and the Samurai in Japan. In Tokyo, where swords have been banned, Kaoru bumps into the wandering Kenshin while looking for the Battosai, who is ruining the name of her fencing school by killing people in the streets using her signature style. Thus begins an extraordinary relationship between Kaoru, a master swordswoman with a heart of gold; Kenshin, a past master who has vowed never to fight again; and the seemingly invincible would-be Battosai. Volume 4: Held captive and running out of hope, Megumi ponders the two options she's been given: A life of suffering, or a peaceful death. Meanwhile, Kenshin and the others continue their battle with the elite former guards of Edo Castle - the Oniwabanshu - as led by the enigmatic Shinomori Aoshi. Foes who spit fire, throw poison darts...How can Kenshin and his friends overcome a seamingly endless number of foes?
