''Rurouni Kenshin'' ("るろうに剣心", "Kenshin the Wanderer") is a 199499 manga by Creator/NobuhiroWatsuki, also known as "Samurai X" after Creator/ColumbiaPictures renamed it for their anime releases (which was later co-opted by Creator/ADVFilms for ''their'' release of the movie and [=OVAs=]). Watsuki, being a major fan of the ''ComicBook/{{X-Men}}'' comics (the characters from which he based a lot of the cast's designs on), heartily endorsed this title translation.

The series is notable for defying several established {{Shonen}} conventions. It features an older hero (Kenshin is 28, [[HollywoodOld which is ancient by genre protagonist standards]] -- [[OlderThanTheyLook not that he looks it]]) who is world-weary and tired of fighting, instead of a wide-eyed young lad eager for adventure. Other themes which are rarely seen in the genre, such as politics, multi-layered romance, and the struggles of adapting to a vastly changing world, pop up as well. This is what contributed to the ''legendary'' MultipleDemographicAppeal of the series, which crossed age, gender and ''national'' boundaries with equal ease.

Watsuki's assistants while writing this series included Creator/EiichiroOda (''Manga/OnePiece'') and Creator/HiroyukiTakei (''Manga/ShamanKing''), both of whom Watsuki credits with designing several characters.

Watsuki announced that he will be working on the series again on May 2, 2012 -- ''Rurouni Kenshin Cinema-ban'' is a loose adaption of the live-action movie; it was a short monthly run at ''Jump Square'' magazine.

[[http://www.animenewsnetwork.com/news/2011-04-18/new-rurouni-kenshin-anime-green-lit There is also an]] [[http://www.animenewsnetwork.com/news/2011-08-20/new-rurouni-kenshin-to-be-2-part-shin-kyoto-video-anime OVA series]] remaking the Kyoto arc and a [[http://www.japanator.com/rurouni-kenshin-enemy-manga-spinoff-31080.phtml spinoff manga]] focusing on the villains. Another one-shot for the series debuted in 2017 called ''Ruroni Kenshin Ibun: The Criminal Ashitaro'', and introduces the titular boy as an ex-criminal and budding "11th sword" of Shishio who is, by the end of it, trained and mentored by Kenshin along with another ex-criminal named Alan Inoue. The spinoff sets itself up as a prelude to a new "Hokkaido Arc" starring the remaining ''Kenshin'' cast, which started its run on late 2017.
