    I know there are a couple of OVAs out and then the series (95 episodes).

    What order should I watch them in?

    1st OVA is kinda boring
    watch TV then samurai X motion picture, and if you wanna know his past, watch the Trust and Betrayal (first OVA)

    i'd stay away from the 2nd OVA, made me look at kenshin in a different way :wtc:

    but you get to see kinta (his son) and grown... fuck i forget his name

    Yahiko?

    And I'd probably watch the first OVA, TV, then second OVA. I'd watch the motion picture too but I'm not sure where that one fits in, probably wouldn't matter as long as it was after first OVA and before second.

    Although the OVA's of his past were originally in the manga, it does not make it to the 95 episode series. Really you only need to watch up to after the big Shi-Shi-O battle. It just gets weird afterwards.

    Watch the OVA's if you wonder where he got his cross slash from.

    kenta...


    honestly what i would do is...

    - watch the series first (only up to episode 60 or whenever the kyoto arc finishes cause everything after that is CRAP)
    - then watch the movie
    - then watch the 2 OVA's

    What is the movie about? I recall watching a part about Kenshin and this lady spy who ends up betraying him after they move in together and then ends up sacrificing herself. Is that the movie?

    No, that's the Trust/Betrayal OVA. The movie is kind of irrelevant but pretty cool. I'd recommend checking it out.

    Do you mean Kenji? That is Kenshin's son's name. I don't remember anyone named Kenta.
