Did Kenshin Himura ever kill anyone after his oath?


What is Rourouni Kenshin?

Rurouni Kenshin is an amazing(In my opinion) manga that is about a rurouni (wanderer) named Himura Kenshin who was once a hitokiri (assassin) called Battosai who killed many to start the Meiji Era. Now he carries a reversed edge sword (sakabato) to prevent him from killing. He soon meets a young girl, Kamiya Kaoru who owns a dojo. Along the way he befriends people like Sagara Sanosuke and Myojin Yahiko. Kenshin encounters many foes from his past and the present and fights to protect the present. READ IT!!

How did Kenshin Himura die?

Kenshin died from lepresy. Also, Kenshin had passed this disease to Kaoru through sexual intercourse. ^^ That's not canon, that happened only in the second OVA (Reflection). In the manga, Kenshin does not die. His Hiten Mitsurugi Ryuu becomes ineffective due to the strain it has exerted on his body so he can't use it anymore. He retires and lives happily ever after with Kaoru. Ohh and I don't think that was supposed leprosy. Different people have different theories on what the disease was but it may very well not be a real disease. It's something he got from using his swordsmanship too much.

Are they going to make season 2 of rurouni kenshin?

No, they aren't going to make a season 2 of Rurouni Kenshin. If you want to find out what happens next, read the manga. All of Kenshin's history and a little bit of his future is in there. Watch the OVAs if you want to know all of what happens to Kenshin.

Who does kenshin love?

Is kenshin himura a real life samurai swordsman?

The character Kenshin Himura is fictional, and was created by Nobuhiro Watsuki. However, Watsuki based the character of Kenshin on a real-life samurai named Kawakami Gensai, who was one of the four most notorious assassins of the Bakumatsu period of Japan. Kenshin's sword style was also based on a real samurai of the Tokugawa period, named Matsubayashi Henyasai.

Where can you learn hiten mitsurugi-ryu in North Carolina?

OK first things first hiten mitsurugi-ryu is a fictional style used by Kenshin Himura, a fictional character. Kenshin Himura is loosely based on Kawakami Gensai who is known as one of the four hitokiri of the Bakumatsu. Hiten mitsurugi-ryu is loosely based on Shiranui-ryu, a style developed by Kawakami Gensai that is characterized by high speed. From my current knowledge and research I can safely say that Shiranui-ryu is a lost art.
