A lovely site with a gorgeous,
elegant layout. Contains a particularly informative Seiso-hen section for
those who haven't seen the OVA and are interested.
This one is really cheerful looking. I like the colorful
design and layout. It's got a cute Nobuhiro Watsuki page as well.
| Kenshinny's Homepage|
A really cool site with a lot
of unique Kenshin content. Contains pages on doujinishi scans, cel art,
and cosplay, among other things.

Not the largest RK site by any means, but I had to list this one because
it's simply adorable.

steadily growing. Bouncy and colorful with plenty of graphics. A nice
site with a nice (and persistent) webmaster.

An odd name for a
Kenshin site, but I really like this one. Ms. Ravenwood offers some deep
insights into the RK characters. A site with substance.

Nice informational articles, image scans, cool Winamp skins, and even some
| RK Xtreme|
layout. Character info, forum, and multimedia. Parts of the site are
still under construction.

It's an Italian site but many of
the pages are translated into English. Plenty of good stuff including a
lot of downloads.

The title is pretty self-explanatory, no?

A very small site, still, but it's
growing. And it's dedicated to Yumi, and there aren't too many shrines
devoted to her that I know of.

explanatory title. A great site with tons of info on Saito and the
A yaoi site dedicated to Sano and Saitou. It's got
adult content, so it's not one for young folks. But still, the chibi pics
are quite cute. And the webmistress' obvious enthusiasm is rather

Beautiful RK (and other anime
series) fan art and hilarious RK parody pics.
Beautiful artwork from multiple anime series done in
multiple styles. Sheer heaven to browse through.
| RK Manga Translations & Downloads|
| Most of the old sites that used to host manga scans
are now down, obviously due to Viz's purchasing of the rights and
publishing them in the U.S. A few scan sites remain, but these host
stories like the Kenshin Kaden, not the main arcs. |

Best manga translation that I've seen
on-line. Translations cover the entire manga series. Great resource for
fan fic writers. And yup, it's still on-line.
Meiji Productions: Jinchuu Radio Play|
The Jinchuu arc done as a
radio play. Definitely something different, and definitely worth checking
quality color scans of the Kenshin Kaden. And it's still on-line as of
today's update, yay! I was beginning to sound like a broken record

I have the Mibu no Ookami site already listed under

would be quite helpful to poor parents who are clueless as to what their
kids are watching.
Large interactive site where folks can post their
fan works and chat.
