Summary
"In the new Meiji Era, Himura Kenshin uses his reversed-edge sword to protect the lives of those within his reach, but during the chaos and bloodshed of the Bakumatsu, he was a very different man. What is the true story behind the cross-shaped scar Kenshin bears on his face? It is the tale of Himura Tomoe, Kenshin's wife who died at his very hands, and of her brother Enishi, who has devoted his entire existence to the goal of watching Kenshin suffer"--Front jacket flap
