Kenshin New Kyoto Arc - Part 1

I just watched the new Kenshin OVA, which covers the events of the Kyoto Arc, and I have to say I am impressed. They did a great job of modernizing Kenshin and cramming a lot of stuff into 45 minutes. Fights were fast paced and realistic. Fans can recognize the trademark moves even though they don't spell it out for you. There have been a few changes to the storyline but mostly for the purpose of streamlining, and the mood is much more mature than the series. That said, you should probably have seen the original Kyoto Arc in order for the OVA to make sense.

You can download the fansubbed HD version from Taka Fansubs.

The OVA doesn't bring much new to the table, but it's a great way to revisit one of Kenshin's strongest Arcs with beautiful modern animation, faster pacing, and a greater sense of maturity.
