Did Kenshin Himura ever kill anyone after his oath?


Did Himura Kenshin die?

In the manga and anime, no. He was never shown dying in either of them. In the OVA, he was shown dying peacefully in Kaoru's arms. I don't known if he dies in any Rurouni Kenshin manga spin-offs, but he does die in the OVA.

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 old is Kenshin Himura and Kaoru?

WARNING!! SPOILERS AHEAD! too bad it was too late when i read it T.T next part not by me -angelawu2 ~ Kenshin is 28 in the current timeline of the story and Kaoru is 17 nice age gap hahaha but really it looks sweet. I just hate the way the story ended. How dare they kill Kenshin in the end? and with what, with some kind of weird disease grrr i hate them. he deserves more that that cos he'd been through a lot of setbacks!!! Kenshin and Kaoru deserves a happy ending.....HUHUHUHUHU (T_T)

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.

Would help if you said which Kenshin you were referring to..The only 'Kenshin' i can think of off the the top of my head is Himura, who features in Rurouni Kenshin/Samurai X.~ Spoilers: Seriously don't read if you havent watched the series yet ~Himura Kenshin dies in the last OVA, Samurai X: Reflection from an unknown disease. It's been speculated that the disease is similar to that of Leprasy.However, Kenshin didn't die in the manga, or the original anime series of Rurouni Kenshin.
