Kenshin's beginings by SKass1 December 30, 2003 - 1:48 PM PST
The OVA volumes mark Kenshin's youth and how he became known as the Manslayer we know from the popular series on Cartoon Network. These are unrated and have more blood and violence than the series on TV. They do an excelent job of illustrating the historical climate of Japan while holding an exceptional entertainment value.

Amazing second part to the OVA by hneline1 May 13, 2002 - 1:01 AM PDT

This disk contains the last two episodes of a 4 part OVA (original video animation), recounting Kenshin Himura's youth. You must watch Volume 1 before watching this disk. See my review on Volume 1 for more info about what I thought about these two DVDs.
