As far as Samurai X goes, I thoroughly enjoyed this OVA collection. I didn't have any expectations when I picked it up, but I was surprised by how much I truly liked the episodes. Still to this day I couldn't tell you a Yu-gi-oh from a Dragonball, but that's only because I'm new and have a lot to learn. If you are looking for a great starting point, this is by far my best recommendation. Anime is certainly difficult to get into and even more difficult to appreciate, not because it's bad, but because there is so much to learn for someone new to this type of genre that the task can be overwhelming. If you want a story that will definitely move you in terms of lifting your spirits, this is a great series. The action scenes are beautifully choreographed and the soundtrack is outstanding.

Description

Samurai X: The OVA Collection, a compilation of the six episodes comprising the two stunningly animated and beautifully told OVAs that accompany the classic anime series featuring legendary samurai Rurouni Kenshin.

Samurai X: Trust
Nineteenth century Japan is a land torn by warfare and rebellion where small bands of soldiers seek to overthrow the tyrannical Tokugawa Shogunate. Enter Kenshin, a young orphan whose fighting skills were honed by the great swordsman Hiko. Though still just a teenager, Kenshin develops a reputation as a skilled assassin. Then, his world is thrown into confusion by the arrival of a mysterious woman named Tomoe, whose kindness shows him a life he didnt know existed. Tomoe possesses secrets that could either help the Kenshin to become a man or destroy everything he holds dear.

Samurai X: Betrayal
Kenshin and Tomoe are forced to escape to a small farm in rural Japan after disastrous events in Kyoto. Living as simple farmers, the two begin to learn more about who they really are and settle comfortably into the peaceful country life. But the political conflicts of the outside world are begin to encroach on their peaceful existence-a traitor is at work to bring down the rebellion and destroy Kenshin in the process. The fugitive couple is eventually drawn to a terrible but stunning climax.

Samurai X: Reflection
The prolonged and bloody war where Rurouni Kenshin gained his fame as a master assassin has long ended, yet Kenshin has found little peace. He is a wanderer, a lost soul, cursed to seek atonement for his life in the bloody trade of the samurai. His wife Kaoru steadfastly awaits his return, mourning his absence as well as that of their son, Kenji. As her health steadily declines, she holds on to the desperate hope that someday Kenshin will return.

The OVAs are both prologue and epilogue to the hit television series, as Samurai X: Trust and Samurai X: Betrayal tell the story of Kenshins mysterious past while Samurai X: Reflection continues Kenshins life after the series conclusion.
