    No he's not since an antihero is someone who's the main character but lacks the qualities typically associated with a hero. Think Batman in this regard. Kenshin embodies the hero qualities fully. As is evident by his desire never to kill, represented by his sakabato (reverse blade), and his willingness to do what ever it took to protect the innocent. Even if you delve into his past you still wouldn't find he fits the definition of antihero. In Samurai X, he's more of a tragic hero since he still has such things as honor. He's just under the assumption that killing is the only way to bring in the new era. As for saying he's not a murderer in the actual series, that's false. While they don't use that word, they do say he had killed in the war.

    I think it's pretty difficult to call him an anti-hero... Because he was a character built in a very realistic way according to his contemporary world. Therefore, he's not a hero, he's a human being with goods and bads.

    As for me personally, I wasn't too much of a fan of the series, but I loved the OVA's. Now I haven't read the manga to see the accuracy of the OVA's regarding the "initial story", but apart that, I loved the story, the graphics, the music, the action [especially the action] and Kenshin's different personality. I think it was well done, very concentrated and therefore, the OVA's hold a special place in my list of favorite anime.

    I think he's pretty solidly a hero in terms of traditional designators. Sure in the past, he was more of an anti hero, but now he's more of a tragic hero. He's had his share of hard knocks and he'd really just like to stay out of the game if he could, but every time he gets out, the call pulls him back in. What I'm really excited about though, is that apparently they've announced they're planning to come out with a new season. I haven't verified this yet, but that would be totally awesome. I have this art book with some of Nobuhiro Watsuki's later material from the series that I was really impressed with and I think it would be really cool to see Kenshin's later life come to the small screen.

    I own all the anime plus the OVA's, plus I'm working on the manga. I currently have 1-15 of the manga. I really love this series. This series is what got me into practicing kendo plus this was one of my first animes. I actually haven't read the manga yet, I'm missing book 2, but it's backordered right now, and should be here within the week, so once I have that, I will start the manga. I am very excited! ^_^

    The anime is good, my first anime actually. But don't watch past the kyoto arc after that the creators run out of money and its not good. I like the manga but I don't yet own all of it. As far as the movies. Trust and betrayal was not too bad the one about the end was horriable as many have already sad. If you do choose to watch the movies, do not, for your own mental safety, i repeat do not watch them in english dub. They mess up all the names and the voice actors are horrid.

    Rurouni Kenshin and Saint Seiya were my childhood anime. I loved the OVAs but was left broken hearted at the end of the future OVA when
     
    one of your childhood heroes dies
    . The creator said he wanted Rurouni Kenshin to end with a happy ending.

    loved the manga and Samurai X both for two very different reasons though. The manga is super fun and light with some a lot of real history but Samurai X was gritty. it showed the harsh reality of battles leading up to the Meiji Revolution and the politics of the modernization of Japan. I think it was the perfect prequel showcasing Kenshin's former self but i really didn't like the other OVA about after their adventures ... kinda boring

    There is no real history in the manga. He draws heavily from history but it's all fictional.
