Kenshin in the anime.

Rurouni Kenshin is an anime series based on the manga of the same name. It covers 95 episodes and is set at a time just over 10 years after the Meiji Revolution and focuses on the life of a legendary Hitokiri (i.e. manslayer), named Himura Kenshin, who became a Rurouni (i.e. wanderer) after the Bakumatsu, and gave up his murderous ways, pursuing a life where he helps protect the innocent, in order to atone for his previous misdeeds. In his journey, he meets a woman named Kamiya Kaoru in Tokyo, whose life he saves from a man impersonating him and trying to bring ruin upon the Kamiya Kasshin-ryū dojo (which is headed by Kaoru).
