    "Don't waste your time and just watch the subtitled version or if you can find another version done by a different studio. The dubbing is incredibly terrible, its even worse then the original series dubbing. The voices don't fit the flaps and the characters sound stiff. The animation is beautiful as usual but the dubbing completely ruins the show."

    "I've seen this one when I was in high school, and it pretty much tells the story of a swordsman's adventure. Kenshin Himura fits the role of being the manslayer for having the perfect characteristics and features. 5 stars for this one!!"

    "I don't normally like anime, but my friend recommended it so I checked it out. It's actually really engrossing, with great animation and characters."

    "Nobody can never be too old for samurai anime, especially those anime which features historic events. Samurai X i think premiered in 2003 I guess? I feel old now but yeah, this is classic."

    "Without a doubt, this is one of my all-time favourite adventure anime series that I have watched. I salute the way the creators of the show were able to combine fiction and the facts of the Japanese history. "

    "Kenshin is my favorite anime character. Everything about him is just amazing. Glad they also made movies of this 4 or 5 years ago I guess. Im a fan and proud to say that I've watched ever since "

    "To this day, I still consider this top shonen jump anime to be one of the prime examples of a good and proper samurai anime series. If you haven't seen it yet, you're really missing out."

    "This one is a true classic action anime in the class as Yu Yu Kahusho. The main difference is that this show is more grounded and realistic compared to that centers around the Meiji Period of Japan and it had everything. It had plenty of action, some comedy, and of course, romance. This is a definite recommendation from me."

    "Let's admit that Rurouni Kenshin isnt the best samurai series out there that i have seen. But this made me an anime fan and the very first samurai series that i saw. Indeed a classic anime on Amazon Prime that you must see. "

    "Anime fans love this. There have been some reports of mislabeling and skipping episodic periods on discs. Small tech problems..but frustrating if you are buying them outright. Cover art cool. Story compelling."

    "One great place to find good Anime is on Netflix. Rurouni Kenshin is a fantastic anime that aired in the late 90's about a swordsman who finds himself in the middle of trouble. It's a must watch for any fans of Japanese anime!"

    "It is hard to say whether or not this solves the problem because it doesn't state what the issue with anime shows is. I suppose if the issue is the lack of this will help to solve that as it is an anime."
